Includes everything from side salads to main entrees from Better Homes and Gardens Test Kitchens.

Twenty-eight short stories that are funny, macabre, or just plain spooky. Read if you DARE.

This was a meh sequel. Somehow the writing seemed very watered down in the retelling or maybe rushed without putting much effort in. Still good for kids for horror genre and reading out loud but I suggest the treasury if you want the series because the third one gets better. ( )

No where near as good as the first. ( )
