The possibility that your toys may be alive is a particularly eek-inducing proposition for kids. They spend so much time with their favorite playthings, manhandling, drooling on, and sometimes mutilating them.
Voices in the Night
Like Toy Story , The Velveteen Rabbit terrifyingly posits that kids who get rid of toys, or play with them … creatively This classic compilation collected folklore and fairy tales into a volume that purported to be for children -- but these stories hardly resemble the sanitized fairy tales of Disney movies. And "Snow White"? There are 62 books in the original Goosebumps series by R.
But it would feel wrong to pick just one. Whether Stine was spooking us with a main character who turned out to have been a ghost without knowing it the whole time, or squicking us out with gross egg monsters from Mars, he knew how to give millions of kids the serious creeps. Roald Dahl can always be counted on for some creepy plot twists. But it was The Witches that filled my young heart with the purest horror. Even after the witches have been defeated, he remains doomed to live out his now much fewer days as a mouse.
Each story seems to offer the perfect dose of horror, leaving kids jumpy enough to hide under the covers, but not too scared to fall asleep.
‘Voices in the Night’ by Steven Millhauser - The Boston Globe
Sure, Harry Potter is fantasy, and the first book describes a world that seems like a delightful escape from Muggle reality. But the rapid intrusion of horrific elements like Dementors, giant snakes, and killing curses makes the series a very dark and threatening space for the young readers who have always made up its broadest and most passionate fanbase.

The trees are sewn with silken, deathless leaves; the concubines are forbidden to shed a tear. His tears shake him, and as he weeps he turns his face away from his son. Across such a broad body of work, thematic concerns and motifs tend to recur, but when compressed into a single collection, these recurrences can occasionally feel like lesser echoes of more realized stories.
