One of my strongest Halloween memories from childhood is listening to my dad read โ€œThe Tell Tale Heartโ€. When he reached the crescendo of the book, โ€œI felt that I must scream or die! and now --again! --hark! louder! louder! louder!

Louder!โ€, he was bellowing at the top of his lungs. When he finished, the doorbell rang. Three children were standing in front of the door, shaking with fear from the tale. Edgar Allen Poe has a gift for creating a truly haunting experience. Each story and poem will not only leave chills up your spine while reading, but will also plague your thoughts for days.
