This book is hands down one of my favorite children's books. My kindergarten teacher read this to us Halloween and I fell in love with it. The story of the little girl named Jenny with the ribbon around her neck really stuck with me. In middle school and high school I started asking people if they ever read a book with that story in it, or heard of it.
No one did. As an adult I was determined to find it but I didn't remember what it looked like. Every Halloween season I would look in book This book is hands down one of my favorite children's books. Every Halloween season I would look in bookstores and ask booksellers if they ever heard that story.
I was beginning to think that I made it up. Oh my god I was so excited. I bought it that day and then I had the author and the title and was able to order some in hard cover. Now when I wander through Barnes and Noble I sometimes see the hardcover in the bargain books section during Halloween time. I make sure to pick up a copy and I give them to my nieces and children of my friends.
I just bought a new one to use when I work with young children so I can keep my copy nice. View all 4 comments. Alvin Schwartz is one of the best tellers of scary stories for kids, and in this book he has adapted that ability for a younger audience than ever: the early reader. The best thing about Alvin Schwartz's scary stories is that the best ones really do make chills run up and down one's spine, and cause a bit of paranoid fear about what could be lurking around the corner in one's own house.
The stories that comprise In a Dark, Dark Room are very short, but effective. Kids won't soon forget the eerie Alvin Schwartz is one of the best tellers of scary stories for kids, and in this book he has adapted that ability for a younger audience than ever: the early reader.
Kids won't soon forget the eerie endings, solidly embedded in the American tradition of horror and folklore storytelling. To me, the best story of In a Dark, Dark Room is about the girl who always wears a green ribbon tied around her neck for no obvious reason. She resists telling a boy she knows and ends up marrying the purpose of the ribbon until her dying day, and then I like this book.
It's a brief read, but completely worth it. I rate In a Dark, Dark Room two and a half stars, and am tempted to round to three. Alvin Schwartz's most famous illustrating partner is the incredible Stephen Gammell, but Dirk Zimmer pairs wonderfully with him as well. Mar 12, Susan rated it liked it Shelves: thriller , mystery.
Oh, the memories! I remember my first grade teacher reading this book to me. Jenny marries a boy and the boy always asks Jenny why she has the scarf on.
Jenny simply just sa Oh, the memories! Jenny simply just says she'll tell him someday. When the boy does, Jenny's head falls off. So yeah, I'm sure this is a total horror book especially if only one simple story freaked me out. Regardless, this book has amazing suspense, mystery, and horror. It's the perfect book to scare the crap out of someone View 1 comment.
Oct 30, Tova rated it it was amazing. I read this years ago, and The Green Ribbon was something. This is one of my favorite books of all time and one of the first books I ever read. The illustrations are spectacular and very creepy, and the stories are wonderfully told twists on classics. Perfect for kids and new readers, as well as anyone who wants a gentle but spooky read.

This is a short collection of very short stories aimed at beginning readers. Though most are based on older folktales, I felt the stories were kind of watered down, to the point that they'll probably only be entertaining to the age group they're aimed at. Kids might get a sense of accomplishment from reading these little morsels of fright, but older readers are likely to be left unsatisfied.
That said, the illustrations are great. The edition I read features new illustrations from , which bre This is a short collection of very short stories aimed at beginning readers. The edition I read features new illustrations from , which breathe some new life into this collection.
Here are my thoughts on the individual stories: "The Teeth" - Creepy more than scary--and without much of a plot--this is basically just the story of a boy who encounters a series of men with progressively larger teeth. The fright factor is highly dependent on the illustrations. An overweight woman sitting in a graveyard meets some corpses.
She asks them if she will be like them when she is dead. They say yes. The illustrations show a vision of her future self as a skinny corpse that looks awfully happy. Make of that what you will. It's probably the most comical and macabre of the bunch. It concerns a young girl named Jenny who wears a green ribbon around her neck. She won't tell anyone what it's for until the day she's on her deathbed The illustrations make the girl look disconcertingly like Anne Shirley
