Praise For…

Praise for A Walk in the Dark and Other Scary Stories (Mister Shivers #4):

"With topics ranging from a bizarre hotel to a magical pen, the tales are reminiscent of scary stories told around a campfire...The illustrations provide an added level of suspense, mixing dark shadows and spooky characters to keep the excitement going. Spooky fun!" -- Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Beneath the Bed and Other Scary Stories (Mister Shivers #1):

Selected by the New York Public Library as one of 2019's Best Books for Kids!

* "Brallier's (The Last Kids on Earth and the Cosmic Beyond, 2018, etc.) strong horror chops translate well into this Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark-lite package for early chapter-book readers... Simplified spooks for the we-want-it-just-scary-enough crowd." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Praise for Shadow in the Woods and Other Scary Stories (Mister Shivers #2):

Selected by the Chicago Public Library as one of 2020's Best Books for Kids!

"Brallier effectively repeats the screamworthy formula established in Beneath the Bed and Other Scary Stories (2019) to add a sense of familiarity to the foreboding... The abrupt, disquieting endings mix the creepy and weird with the genuinely terrifying, creating a nice balance as readers jump bravely between stories... Easy to read but definitely not easy to forget." -- Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Doll in the Hall and Other Scary Stories (Mister Shiver #3):

Selected by the Chicago Library as one of 2021's Best Books for Kids!

Praise for The School Is Alive! (Eerie Elementary #1):

"Give this early chapter book to readers who want something scary but aren't ready for the 'Goosebumps' or 'Scream Street' series." -- School Library Journal

Praise for The Last Kids on Earth:

A New York Times bestseller

* "Middle-grade readers, particularly boys, will find Jack's pitch-perfect mix of humor, bravado, and self-professed geekiness impossible to resist." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review
