Welcome, Fearless Readers! Here we are nearing the ghostly season when things go bump, and squish, and hooowl in the night.
I wish to remind educators and young readers that the books in my “Scary Tales” series will make your life better by upwards to 63% or less.
No one gets murdered in these stories, everybody comes out okay, but the suspense might rattle your cage. Reminds me of that great line by Oscar Wilde: “The suspense is terrible. I hope it will last.”
Here’s how you can win a free book.
Yes, free book, mailed to your domicile.
I’ll show six illustrations below by the great Iacopo Bruno, one from each of the “Scary Tales” titles in random order. Beneath 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 20th. On that date, I will send a signed book to six randomly-selected fearless readers who respond with their best answers. (Don’t have to be right!)
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!
