Welcome, Fearless Readers! Here we are, nearing the ghostly season when things go bump, and squish, and hooowl in the night.
It’s when I remind educators and young readers about the books in my “Scary Tales” series. Scientists agree: These books will make your life up to 63% better.
No, no one gets murdered in these stories, everybody comes out okay (more or less), but the suspense might kill you. Ah, not to worry. In that unlikely event, I’m sure the kind folks at Macmillan will fork over a full refund. Small solace, but hey, caskets aren’t cheap.
This year the vaunted James Preller Marketing Department has developed a game to play, featuring free books to win.
Yes, free books.
Could anything be better?
I’ll show six illustrations by the great Iacopo Bruno, one from each of the “Scary Tales” titles in random order. Below that, I’ll list the titles. You or (hopefully) your students or children need to match the illustrations with the correct titles. Then send an email to me at Jamespreller@aol.com under the subject heading SCARY TALES. Entries must be received by October 15th. On that date, I will send a signed book to six randomly-selected fearless readers who respond with the correct answers.
Please feel free to share this page with friends and foes and fish and fowl alike.
Now match the illustration to one of these six titles:
1. Home Sweet Horror
2. I Scream, You Scream
3. Good Night, Zombie
5. One-Eyed Doll
6. Swamp Monster
THANKS & GOOD LUCK!
