So when I was a child, I had these books that scared the bejesus out of me, called "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark".  The book has since been re-released, WITHOUT the scary pictures!!  <gasp!>

My friend also used to read the same books, so when he asked for a painting for his birthday, I thought I would commemorate a book that we probably will never get our hands on again by painting him the cover.  Here it is--it's a copy of the original work by Stephen Gammell.

Yeah, If I was still 10, and saw that on a cover of a book, I'd be scared poopless. Yikes!  Heck I'm 30 now, and it still creeps me out! Great work Cheesy

Very cool!  How could they re-release it without the images, that was part of what made that book so great.  Thank you for reminding me that I have that book and it's time to share with my 9yr old.   Roll Eyes

I am SO JEALOUS of all of you who have kept the books!  I don't know where mine went, but I'd give anything to see them again.  Enjoy them!

And thank you for the comments.  Smiley
