Book Review: Through the Woods by Emily Carroll

through the woods scary stories emily carrollAmazon Description:

Journey through the woods in this sinister, compellingly spooky collection that features four brand-new stories and one phenomenally popular tale in print for the first time. These are fairy tales gone seriously wrong, where you can travel to “Our Neighbor’s House”—though coming back might be a problem. Or find yourself a young bride in a house that holds a terrible secret in “A Lady’s Hands Are Cold.” You might try to figure out what is haunting “My Friend Janna,” or discover that your brother’s fiancée may not be what she seems in “The Nesting Place.”

My Review:

This collection of scary stories were a bit too juvenile for me but I continued reading to see if it was appropriate to share with my daughter. I enjoyed the haunting, creepy artwork. I also liked that the stories were short and to the point. My 11 year old might be too young for this book (maybe I’m overprotective) but I can imagine a teen really enjoying this. Through the Woods is a great book to reference if you’re wanting scary stories to tell around the campfire.
