Four Scary Stories

Tomie de Paola is always so wonderful!  His books were my favorite when I was a little girl.

Here's one that uses the common device of several stories told within a story. An Imp, a Goblin, and a Scalawag all get together to tell scary stories about the scariest thing they can think of: a Boy. Of course, the stories are much more silly than scary!



  1. I have never seen this book before. My students love his books and ask for them all the time. I will have to double check my library for it.

  2. Oh my goodness, I must find this!! I adore anything Tomie de Paola!! This looks totally fun and adorable :)
