The Cabinet of Curiosities: 36 tales brief & sinister by multiple authors 486 pages

This collection of short stories is really cool.  It is presented to the reader as a physical manifestation of the stories.  They will be housed in drawers, closets, and entire floors of the Cabinet of Curiosities.  Each section is comprised of several stories with a somewhat common theme.  The authors were Claire Legrand, Katherine Catmull, Emma Trevayne and Stefan Bachmann.  Some of the stories were very dark indeed.  They were all quite enjoyable, though.  I think that this would really appeal to kids who are outgrowing Goosebumps and want something that is creepier, more imaginative and entertaining.  I can think of many adults who would enjoy it, as well.  On the whole, I highly recommend this one to anyone who likes to walk in the shadows now and then.

On a side note, some covers I've seen say 40 tales rather than 36...I'm curious about those missing 4 stories...
