Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0812626885, Hardcover)

In this creepy collection, award winning writer Robert San Souci draws on myths, legends, and folk tales to create thirteen completely new stories, all featuring boys and girls from 8 to 12 as leading characters. "Ants" features Kyle, who tricks his mother into allowing him to go see a scary movie with his friend, but regrets it when the movie lingers a bit too long after the end credit. In "The Caller," Lindsay, a self-absorbed preadolescent, is visited by a deceased aunt who intends to reclaim a coveted ring, and perhaps Lindsay with it! Other stories include a boy whose frightening dream becomes a waking nightmare, a girl whose tricks on her little sister make her a Halloween treat for a real witch, and four middle-school bullies whose cruel ways bring the wrath of a mountain devil. Dare to Be Scared weaves suspense, drama, and psychological power into eerie, evocative stories, including ghost tales, fantasy, and science fiction, that will spur young imaginations.
