  • This is a new series by Robert D. San Souci. I picked it because it's a collection of scary short stories which is what my son likes best. However, the book sat there for a couple of weeks so I thought someone should read it. The book has 10 short scary stories all centered around houses - even though with some of the stories it's a stretch. They were all well written with a good combination of fright and relief so that even the youngest reader won't have nightmares. Not all of the stories have [...]


  • it was really interesting and mysterious. I really enjoyed this book because its not just one whole story its many different stories.


  • This book is a collection of ghost stories. My favorite one was about this little boy who had gotten lost in a forest. His mom had gone crazy after he did not turn up, and ended up in an insane asylum. One day she escaped, and the townspeople would here her yelling for her son in the woods, but she was never seen again. Then, Valerie (the main character) finds the little boy's skeleton and reunites the mother's ghost with the child's ghost. It was a ghost story that was actually sort of beautifu [...]


  • It isn’t often that I recommend a book that I haven’t read in its entirety, but I am – I admit it – a scaredy cat! You see, I started this collection, but I just couldn't finish it. And now, I can’t stop thinking about San Souci's creepy stories.You’ll find ten tales of haunted houses in this collection by Robert San Souci, one of San Francisco’s great storytellers and folklore collectors. In one story, a boy’s family is vacationing in a house that is taken over by spiders. Now, [...]


  • Yeah, it's a kid's book -- but wow, these are fairly intense! Kids and pets bite the dust in a number of the tales. Definitely stronger stuff than San Souci's "Short and Shivery" series -- but fine for kids 11 or so who are fairly jaded about bunnies being sucked dry by giant spiders. San Souci writes pretty well and it's a fun collection of riffs on the haunted-house theme -- haunted doll house, haunted dog house, haunted walk-though "haunted house" attraction a couple of stories borrow very l [...]


  • I read this anthology on the recommendation of my 11yo. It's aimed at middle-grade readers and includes some decent horror stories - ones that kids can retell on their own fairly easily to spook their friends. In that regard, I think the book does its job well. In a few cases, though, I felt like some of the stories could have been developed further and were cut short. Also, at random times, certain words seemed too sophisticated for the level of the book, so they jolted me out of the stories wh [...]


  • Haunted Houses is a great book. The pictures inspired me to read the book. I liked almost every ten scary stories in the book. At first when I started reading the book I thought it was childish and not scary at all, but as I read on I found it pretty good. I found some parts very funny too! The spiders that eats people really creeped me out. My favorite story was the ghost who was trying to find her husband. I was glad the kids helped her find her husband--otherwise they wouldn't have been able [...]


  • Some decent stories in here, and a couple of surprises. The read itself feels a bit dated. There's a fair amount of cultural appropriation and some gender stereotyping throughout, which makes me a bit hesitant to recommend to patrons. Horror depends so heavily on cultural tropes and mores -- I get that, and some of the stereotyping is used to that end; equivalent to the Indian Burial Ground. I've read better collections this month I'm more likely to recommend, though I imagine the basic structur [...]


  • This book was okay, I didn't really like it, but I didn't really hate it. I thought that sometimes the book was kind of bizarre, and I like it when the scary stories are just scary. I also didn't like how a lot of stories were just plain creepy! I don't to read books that give me the chills, I know that lots of people like scary and creepy together, but night me it was just too scary and weird. So overall I gave San Souci's collection of short stories a 2 out 5.


  • In my opinion "Haunted House" is a good book because I loved it.I would recommend this book to all the people who love nail biting scary stories and if you don't like scary stories then I won't recommend it to you.If this book was on series I would read all the series.This writing is really powerful I like how the author adds details.I love all of it and I hope you will too.I hope you will enjoy this book as much as I did.But you can't love it as much as me.


  • Well written and in my opinion scary! I would read before bed and be a little uneasy.My students promise me they can handle it so I'm putting in the collection. Maybe I'll only let 4th and 5th graders take it out and give a warning. We have 3 other books in the library that seem similarly scary and the kids don't seem upset so we'll see. If you are looking for a fight I recommend this one, for grown ups too!


  • I did like it, maybe if I could, I could give it 3.5 stars. This was a fun collection of kid's ghost stories. A lot of them were creative twists on old classics. Some felt like new urban legends for the current elementary generation. My kids liked them, too, though they were genuinely creeped out by some. (Technically, I didn't give them permission to read it, but they did anyway.)


  • it took me far too long to read this book, every new story i had to be connected to the characters again and i still felt like something was missing. Great shortish stories but if you're someone who needs to be connected, it'll take you awhile to finish reading this


  • A pretty good collection of spooky stories. My favorite (and one I read aloud to my 5th/6th graders) is The Lodge. A nice ghost story that sends chills up their spines, but isn't gory or gross, and ends happily.


  • Really unimpressive, and the dialogue was absolutely ridiculous.Summary: 10 short stories. Someone dies in every story. That's it. Only recommended to die-hard "scary stories" fans who have run out of other reading material.



  • If you enjoy being scared / creeped out, read this book. With my vivid imagination and fear of total darkness I couldn't even get half way through it.


  • I didn't really actually get through the whole book. I read three stories, none of them scary, and it was soooo boring. I decided to stop reading.


  • Really good collection of interesting and original spooky stories aimed towards kids. None of them scared me, but I enjoyed them anyways!





  • San Souci has perfected the scary story. These were some of the best I've read. Perfect for read-alouds. Kids should love them. I also enjoyed the diversity of characters and setting.
