Anyone own this book as a kid?

Did anyone else here have the book of short horror stories when they were a kid, that was a red paperback and came with a cassette tape with an audio recording of a couple of the stories from the book on it? One was about "Batty Hattie" and the other was about some old miser that was buried with his gold coin under his eyepatch.

I actually collect books of short horror stories, but I'm somewhat selective. I haven't heard of the ones you've mentioned. What age group do you think the book was meant for? Mine are mostly adult or young adult readers, but a few have very red covers.

It was probably children's, but I suppose maybe....what's after children's? Middle Grade??? Maybe that. I think I got it when I was probably 7 or 8 years old.

You never said you were looking for it, but now you have me curious.

I have a red book that has a collection of Alfred Hitchcock stories that looks like it's meant for young readers. It's called ''Monster Museum''.

Another one I have has a red-ish cover by Bruce Coville called ''Book of Monsters: Tales to Give You the Creeps''. I think I have another one by him but my room is a mess and I don't recall where I put it.

Rudyard Kipling's ''The Mark of the Beast and Other Horror Tales'' has a red cover with a chimp-person looking sculpture on it.

I might have more but I'm too disorganized.


I feel your plight though. For a long time I sought my favorite book of scary stories from my childhood is this blue cover book that has the story of the Tailypo. The art and story itself were so memorable I vividly remember it giving me chills. (I must've been pretty young cause I found it again in my adult years [and have it in my collection now], and going over it again it's not that frightening. It's no ''Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark''.)
