All Hallows Read (Day 26) A scary book for…

…people who like their fiction short.  Really short.


Fiction doesn’t come much shorter or more awesome than Half-Minute Horrors! This collection of super-short tales by a variety of well-known writers is aimed at kids around 10 and up. It’s also creepy as all get out! These little bites of literary terror even scared us a few times.


All Hallow’s Read is a book-giving tradition thought up by author Neil Gaiman. We’ll be making book suggestions all month long in case you need ideas!
