The Girl Who Stood on a Grave

... Reminded me of the Stephen Gammell illustration for the story "The Girl Who Stood on a Grave" from Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.

"She picked out a grave and stood on it. Then quickly she bent over and plunged the knife into the soil, and she started to leave. But she couldn't get away. Something was holding her back..."

The original drawing for Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark by Stephen Gammell:


  1. I love love love those books. Thank you for finding all these cool images that remind me of happy times as a young boy at Magnolia.

  2. No prob, I have the first and thrid book, but will soon buy the second (I just love all the images!) Stephen Gammell is one of my heros... for scaring me half to death for most of my childhood, lol.
