Does anyone remember these books?

They scared the crap out of me when I was little.  I'm surprised that my catholic grade school had them in the library.

I was thinking of getting a sleeve tatooed based on the art from them.  With my luck, I'd look at my arm before bed and not be able to sleep  :o

Loved those books, I read them to my neices when they were younger while babysitting for them, our personal favorite was The Hearse Song...

Don't ever laugh as the hearse goes by,
for you may be the next to die.

They'll wrap you up in a big white sheet,
and put you down about 6 feet deep.

So all goes well for about a week,
and then your coffin begins to leak.

The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out,
the worms play pinochle in your snout.

They eat your clothes, they eat your hat,
they crawl in skinny, they crawl out fat.

They eat your eyes, they eat your nose,
they eat the jelly between your toes!

Your stomach turns a slimy green,
and pus pours out like whipping cream.

You spread it on a slice of bread,
and that's what you eat when you are dead
Either write things worth reading,
Or do things worth the writing.

This brings back memories. What about the story about a guy with a hook?

i used to LOVE scary stories to tell in the dark. i used to sing the same song that willow posted constantly. me and my friends still do when we get bored. i remember being scared to death about the story about the hook but i can't for the life of me remember what its about.
A long, long time agoI can still rememberHow that music used to make me smileAnd I knew if I had my chanceThat I could make those people danceAnd maybe they'd be happy for a whileAmerican Pie, Don McLean~ carpe diem, seize the day, make your lives extraordinary.-dead poet's society i eat emo kids for breakfast. with french fried hash browns.

I remember in that same book they had this guy who kept pronouncing everything beginning with a certain letter.

I think it was V.

"I vant to vash" lol. I think that's what it was.

I think it was about some kids who hear about this guy with a hook for a hand... they hear a scratching noise on thier car door and speed off.  They get at thier destination to find a hook stuck on thier door handle...

I still have the whole collection, the absolute WORST drawing is for "The Haunted House" story the drawing of the half-rotten woman is just burned in my memory. "The Thing" is also a creepy story
