School Library Journal Review for Tiptoe Into Scary Places
Elementary schoolers are invited to enter the realm of the paranormal and discover real-life grisly murders, hauntings, and curses. Each volume retells a handful of spooky tales, from ghosts at the Millicent Library in Fairhaven, MA, to vampires at the legendary Panteón de Belén cemetery in Guadalajara, Mexico. . . .The straightforward text and print size make this set useful as a hi-lo series. The narratives are suspenseful but appropriate for the audience. Each spread is a mixture of nightmarish photographs of historical places and crime scenes and CGI supernatural entities, shadows, and more. VERDICT: Not for the faint of heart, this series will delight fans of bloody human history.
