Guide/Reviews Database
(4) K-3 Creep Out series. This parapsychology series superficially explores fear and types of creepy locations. Each slim book highlights what makes the place so scary through matter-of-fact yet evocative writing: "Tombstones stand around you... You shiver. You are in a cemetery." Colorful photographs appear manipulated to enhance the creep factor. Short, simple sentences make for an easy read, though one pretty scary for the intended first-grade-and-up audience. Review covers these Creep Out titles: Caves, Cemeteries, Ghost Towns, Haunted Houses, Old Jails, and Tombs.
