Scary Stories challenge fails.
From the Louisville Courier-Journal:
Dorsey said her granddaughter, a first-grader at Utica Elementary, has been afraid of the dark and "plagued by nightmares" since last March, after another student who got a book from Utica Elementary's library gave it to her.
The girl couldn't read the book because it's written for older children. But the pictures, which include sketches of a witch and spiders coming out of a hole in a face, caused the girl to be "imprisoned by fear," Dorsey told the board.
I don't think I can top that.
