I choose the book because I can’t believe they are banned. As a child I hated reading the Scary Stories Series were the only books that caught my attention. The books were both spooky and funny at the same time. I read them as a child and I came out normal I’m scared of the dark a little but who isn’t its dark.
Summary
The Babysitter
Scary stories to tell in the dark is made up of little different funny spooky, funny, urban legends and stories. My favorite story is called the Babysitter, it’s an urban legend that dates back to the 1960s. Richard, Brian, Jenny, and Doreen the babysitter are sitting on the coach around nine o’clock. The phone rings and Doreen answers it a man laughed hysterically, and hung up. He did that many more times he would say things like it won’t be long now, and counting down the hours. The babysitter calls the operator and the operator tells her if he calls again that she will try track the call. The man called again and the babysitter called the operator. The operator called and told the babysitter to leave the house because the call was coming from inside the house.
