Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark is a series of three children's books written by Alvin Schwartz and illustrated by Stephen Gammell. The titles of the books are Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (1981), More Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (1984), and Scary Stories 3 More Tales to Chill Your Bones (1991). Beware these stories may give you clammy palms, goose bumps, the shivers, and other signs of fright.

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark boxed set by Alvin Schwartz

The question everyone asks me is: do these have the original drawings banned by so many school libraries? The answer is Yes indeed!

Condition: Good books. Box shows wear, bumps, bends, impressions, soiling, and edge tears. Tear on back of box and top edge. The books have edge and shelf wear. Each one has been read and shows handling marks. They show a bit of rubbing along the spine from being put in the box with some corner wear. All details can be seen in the photos.

This is the regular full size edition of these books.

THESE ARE THE ORIGINALS!!! Very excited! It’s hard to find copies that haven’t been re-published/written/drawn. But these are the same old books that scared me to sleep at night as a kid 😆 And they’re in GREAT condition! 2 of the 3 look like they’ve never been opened. Very satisfied and already sent the link to a friend who just bought herself a set. 😁Oh and shipping was lightening fast! Packing was great too. A lot of care went into the packaging. Very appreciated!

So happy to find this box set for sale and at such a reasonable price! Been searching a while for thsee books and the ones I've found (in book stores) were colored in by the previous pubescent proprietors or had other such damages or out right missing pages. I was surprised to find a box set of these in such excellent condition! Thank you very, very much!
