Parents' Little Black Book Reviews
on Jan. 20, 2012 :
I loved Three Tales of Middle Grade Horror by Rebecca Besser. The author does a great job of creating stories that would easily appeal to middle grade students while giving them twists that are unexpected and surprising.
As an English teacher, one of the best parts of this collection is that the stories are a managable length for students who are still developing their reading skills and might be put off by a long book. Each of the stories has a great surprise and they all have settings that are familiar enough that any middle grade student could easily identify with the characters.
I can easily envision students reading these stories around Halloween with the lights turned low and some scary mood music. I highly recommend this collection to those who are reading in the 6th to 8th grade level and want something spooky and exciting that would also inspire them to read more.
