Today, I was babysitting my six-year-old nephew, and he wanted me to tell him scary stories. Unfortunately, all of the ones I know were either way too scary/”realistic” for a kid that young (and I didn’t want to get an angry phone call from his Mom when he didn’t want to go to sleep tonight), or too complicated for a six-year-old to really understand.
I tried telling him a version of the Tiyanak legend that I once read in a book, and one that was similar to the “Daddy look under my bed / Daddy there’s someone in my bed” short-short story, and both required so much explanation at the end that I think both of us ended up getting frustrated. He liked The Golden Arm okay, though—probably because I did the jump/scream scare at the end.
I wonder if the library has a copy of In a Dark Dark Room that I could flip through to get ideas. I might also try the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark series, though Lord knows that Stephen Gammell’s illustrations in those books scared the hell out of my well into junior high…
