I remember the stories from Alvin Schwartz book “Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark” being pretty creepy, but it was the terrifying illustrations in this book that scared crap out of me. I remember not even wanting to open certain pages for fear that I might bring those unsettling images with me into my dreams at night. My brothers would tease me by showing me the scary girl without eyes page. AAAAHHH! I guess I should thank Stephen Gammell the illustrator for these lasting visions of the macabre. Thanks Stephen!
Just check out some of the images from the book below:
Geez…what are they growing on this farm?
That’s the look I’ll give if I ever win the lottery!
You’d scream like that too if you had a hole in your arm?
Never trust a creepy kid carrying a dangerous garden tool.
