I first read Monster Tales when I was 8 years old, since then I had been looking for about 15 years, until I found it again. What a great collection of horror stories for kids. All the stories are quick reads with sufficient chill factors, but one story in particular stood out in my mind all those years. Wendigo's Child by Thomas F. Monteleone is by far worth the price of admission for this dark rollercoaster.

Just as almost all the rest of the reviewers, I read this one sometime around third or fourth grade, and I loved it.
Fast forward over thirty years, and I found mention of that old book, whose title had escaped me, during a web search for something else.
I was elated to find that, while out of print, there were used copies of it available, one of which I ordered, and even now, this compilation is wonderful, and I say that as someone who has read ALL the Stephen King novels during what I call his "glory years," which is from "Carrie" up to but excluding "It."
Naturally, these stories are written grammatically for younger readers, but that didn't stop me from thoroughly enjoying rereading all of them.
The three that still really spooked me were "The Vroklak" (Oooh! noseless witch!), "Precious Bodily Fluids" (scary, VERY scary), and the best was "Wendigo's Child," which was terrifying and reminded me of the key part of the story in Stephen King's "Pet Semetary."
I then handed this gem off to my thirteen year old girl to read, and she likes it quite a lot.
If you can still find one of the few used copies being sold, I can highly recommend this, as a book that anyone, young and old, can enjoy.
The seller also got this to me well within the promised time.

I read this book when I was a child in the 70's--I checked it out of the Buckley Elementary School library over and over...I have been looking for it forever. I couldn't remember the name of the book, just the creepy, haunting stories about the Lamia, the Wendigo, and the Vrkolak and the story about the boy in the woods with the dogs(see how long it's been!). To this day I remember the scary illustrations and the chills I got from reading it and visualizing the stories in my mind! I am glad to finally have found it and intend to buy a copy right away. This is a haunting book and GREAT for kids (and adults) who like scary stuff.

My sister and I first read this book in elementary school in the 70's, checked out from our local library, and it soon became one of our favorites. We still quote from it to this day! I've searched for years and so happy to have found it!! I ordered it for my sister for Christmas, she's going to be so surprised! Definitely worth it!

I just now found the name of this book. When I was a child in the 70's I lived a few doors down from our town library. I checked out this book many times. I have searched for it for years but couldn't remember the name of the book or the stories...just what 2 of them were about. I am ordering this book immediately and highly recommend it. These were very intense stories for children and I loved it!!!
  • Jorad
my kids enjoyed this book almost as much as i did and i still have wendigo nightmares from it. for older children but still okay. took forever to find it again but well worth it.

The content is fine but the book had many stains throughout. Not up to
my standards. Giving an opinion should be optional NOT REQUIRED!

Like a previous reviewer, I first read this book when I was younger...in fourth grade, in fact.
I have always been a fan of monsters and horror films, so this book of short stories particularly held my interest.
Each story is interesting, imaginative, and unique. Although not as explicitly graphic as certain horror novels released today, this is definitely not a "children's book." The stories contain supernatural imagery and suspense that might not sit well with younger (< 10 years) readers. I particularly liked and was scared by "Precious Bodily Fluids" by Mario Martin, Jr. and found myself checking my basement for vampires. The other stories are equally compelling.
Unfortunately, it appears this book is no longer in print. I recommend purchasing it if you happen upon a copy...I know I will.
I first read Monster Tales when I was 8 years old, since then I had been looking for about 15 years , until I found it again. What a great collection of horror stories for kids. All the stories are quick reads with sufficient chill factors, but one story in particular stood out in my mind all those years. Wendigo's Child by Thomas F. Monteleone is by far worth the price of admission for this dark rollercoaster. Based on the Northwest Mythos of Wendigo(an avenging spirit that is part human-part animal), Wendigo's Child tells the tale of a boy named Marty who uncovers a strange artifact with horrifying results. Creepy illustrations by Franz Altschuler, and wicked introduction by Robert Bloch! If you can find this book ,buy it!
