About the Author

Susan Rich has edited a frightening number of books, including those in Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, Gloria Whelan's National Book Award-winning Homeless Bird, and the series Flat Stanley's Worldwide Adventures. Born in Winnipeg, she attended McGill University in Montreal and received her master's degree in children's literature from Simmons College in Boston. She has haunted old publishing houses in New York and then Toronto, where she now lives with her devilish husband and ghastly children. HarperCollins Publishers is a proud supporter of First Book, a national nonprofit organization whose mission is to give children from low-income families the opportunity to read and own their own new books. The primary goal of First Book is to work with existing literacy programs to distribute new books to children who, for economic reasons, have little or no access to books. In this way, First Book effectively leverages the heroic efforts of local tutoring, mentoring, and family literacy organizations as they work to reach children who need help the most. First Book distributes millions of books to hundreds of thousands of children nationwide each year. For more information on First Book, please visit www.firstbook.org.

Reviews

"Only have a minute to be scared? This is your book. Writing just a paragraph or a page, some of the best-loved kids' book authors each contributed a compact creepy tale to this collection. A definite spook-fest."--Washington Post
"It's a party game: write a scary story that will take less than thirty seconds to read. With a party of seventy-five that includes such guests as Neil Gaiman, Sonya Sones, Jon Scieszka, and Margaret Atwood, the results are bound to be pretty good."--Horn Book (starred review)
