Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nostalgic! Simply a wonderful classic. I remember in elementary when my teacher read this on a Halloween day and it just stuck with me growing up. This book would randomly pop into my head, so I decided to search for it and found it! I ordered a copy so I could pass on Alvin Schwartz legacy, what an amazing author. I can't wait to read this to my nephews, i'm sure they will love it as much as I did!
