Too Scared to Sleep

Too Scared to Sleep

by Todd Strasser Illustrated by Doug Cushman
Are there creatures lurking in the shadows? Does the closet door open in the middle of the night? Is nighttime just too scary without a night-light? You can never tell what's hiding in the darkness! These stories from the pen of Todd Strasser are sure to send a shiver up many a spine! The seven unnerving stories in this original collection feature action figures that come alive at night, a ghost's first encounter with an MP3 player, and a karaoke machine that terrifies a sleepover party.
