Behold fourteen nightmares, in which readers can-if they dare-visit an amusement park where parents bring unwanted offspring; redeem a ticket for a never-ending plane ride; or join the ghosts of dead children at a midnight playground. “Given the recent craze for anything hor-rific, this book is sure to be a hit, and ideal for classroom read-alouds or booktalks.”-School Library Journal

Review: A Nightmare's Dozen: Stories from the Dark

User Review  - Eric - Goodreads

A fine collection of horror stories. I finished this in just a couple days because the font is large, the spacing is generous, and the stories aren't very long. They're also pretty good, with not a dud in the whole thing. A great find in the 808 section of the library. Read full review
