From School Library Journal
Grade 1-3 - This is a disappointing series of small books whose stories revolve around childhood fears. In Ankle Grabber,a girl imagines that monsters are lying in wait for her at bedtime. Even after Mom has carefully checked and assured her that all is safe, a trip to the bathroom is filled with hair-raising dread. In Jumble Joan, two boys and a tagalong little sister explore a spooky attic. The boys attempt to frighten their sibling with scary stories, but they only end up scaring themselves. The third title features two cousins on a backyard camping trip. They're telling scary stories, while another child lurks outside the tent trying to eavesdrop and scare them. Unfortunately, these slight tales lack suspense. The exaggerated cartoon monsters seem generic and uninspired, and the endings are both...

From Publishers Weekly
Children of a certain age love to scare themselves, and these two titles from the new Creepies series attempt to exploit that passion. Each first-person narrative enumerates scary things that the child imagines in the darkvarious monsters which are engagingly (and frighteningly) illustrated. The well-designed pictures are, in fact, more intriguing than the repetitive, overstated texts. In fact, these books read more like a catalogue of creepies than satisfyingly scary stories. Readers may prefer such solid collections as Alvin Schwartz's Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark or Jack Prelutsky's haunting poems in Nightmares: Poems to Trouble Your Sleep. Ages 6-8. Copyright 1988 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
