About the author (1991)

Alvin Schwartz was born April 25, 1927.Schwartz began his career as a journalist, but, after the publication of his bestselling book A Twister of Twists, a Tangler of Tongues, he devoted himself to becoming a collector and arranger of folk wisdom, rhyme, and silliness. Schwartz is known for a body of work of more than two dozen books of folklore for young readers that explore everything from wordplay and humor to tales and legends of all kinds. Schwatz is best known for the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark series, which featured gruesome, nightmarish illustrations by Stephen Gammell. The series was America's most frequently challenged book (or book series) for library inclusion of 1990-1999. Alvin Schwartz died in Princeton, New Jersey on March 14, 1992.

Stephen Gammell's drawings have appeared in a number of books for children, including Alvin Schwartz's Scary Stories to tell in the Dark, More Scary Stories To Tell in The Dark, and Scary Stories 3. He is the winner of the Caldecott Medal for his drawings in Song and Dance Man by Karen Ackerman, and his art in Where the Buffaloes Begin by Olaf Baker earned him a Caldecott Honor award, the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award, and a New York Times Best Illustrated Books award. Other recent books he has illustrated include Will's Mammoth by Rafe Martin, andDancing Teepees: Poems of American Indian Youth by Virginia Driving Hawk Sneve.

Mr. Gammell lives with his wife in St. Paul, Minnesota.
