Book review: Half minute horrors

Half minute horrors: Very small stories. Very big scares. Featuring Neil Gaiman, James Patterson, Lemony Snicket, Cassandra Clare, Holly Black, Margaret Atwood, James Patterson, R.L.Stine, and much more.

Harper Collins, 2009. 141 pages.

Presented to creep you out in 30 seconds, this collection of very short shiver-inducing stories is a treat for children and adults interested in something creepy yet fun. A huge variety of writers have contributed to this book and you are sure to find some you love.

This book isn’t for all kids, especially those who scare easily, but it is a perfect book for kids who love scary stories and want more of them. It is one addictive book.

Some of our favorite stories include:

Something you ought to know by Lemony Snickett, about a quiet man who watches you every time you sleep.

An easy gig by M.T.Andersib, about a baby-sitting job gone really wrong.

Death rides a pink bicycle by Stacey Godenir, about well, read it!

    Dear Stacey Godenir,

    I absolutely loved your short story “Death Rides A Pink Bicycle”.

    At first I thought the little blonde girl was just an ordinary child, and wondered why Annie didn’t get knocked off to the road as well.
    Except it all came to sense at the end. A very shocking and scary story.

    Well done!!
