    Rissi's short-story horror collection holds an entertaining mix of writing styles and types of frights, from mildly unsettling to cautionary to alarming. It also offers a nice variety of story lengths, ensuring that any reader who picks up this book will find a few tales to their taste—provided they go for things like sinister dolls and a murderous murder of crows. Whether a short, rhyming verse or multipage narrative, each story opens with a haunting black-and-white illustration that hints at the horrors to come. Overall, the offerings are strong, with some standouts being "Truly Delicious," a zombie story told through a child's letters home from summer camp; "Here, Kitty Kitty," an unusual haunted-house story; "Superstition: The Play," a creepy childhood legend presented as a play with an unplanned disappearing act; and "The Friend," in which a young girl's imaginary friend proves himself to be all too real. Given the range of stories and formats, this is a strong choice for both horror fiends and those just wanting to dip their toes into scarier waters. Grades 3-6. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
