Scare-master Robert San Souci serves up ten chilling tales about untraditional haunted houses: a mansion full of pirate treasure, a ghost trapped in a mysterious dollhouse, a boy whose vacation house comes complete with people-eating spiders, and many more. But beware because not all of the protagonists in these stories get out alive.

Book Excerpts

Read an Excerpt

Chimera House
“It is the scariest place ever,” said Demond.
His girlfriend, Rachelle, sitting next to him, just rolled her eyes.
“Uh-huh,” Demetrius, his brother, called Little D, responded—being cool, not playing along. He was angry, stuck in between Antoine and Lorelle—both of them hefty. For all they played at being in love, they didn’t want to middle-seat it where a metal bar made riding a real pain. This was especially true when Demond, the world’s worst driver in Little D’s mind, hit a pothole or bump at full speed.

Reviews

Praise for Haunted Houses

 “Outright skinpricklers…Offer this to those who already know San Souci’s work or who want follow-ups for Alvin Schwartz’s Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark series, should it somehow stay on the shelf long enough to want company.” —Booklist

 “Well-paced and satisfyingly startling…this book won’t stay on the shelves for long. Murphy and Revoy’s black-and-white illustrations heighten the fright factor, making San Souci’s collection even more riveting.” —School Library Journal

 “These original tales are not for the fainthearted: Many of the stories’ protagonists end their tales dead—or worse. By turns poignant and downright scary, this is a solid addition for stouthearted middle-grade readers.” —Kirkus Reviews
