MYSTERY UNDERGROUND
ZOMBIE KING AND OTHER SCARY SHORT STORIES
By Charles David Clasman and David Anthony

Mystery Underground is a collection of scary short stories for kids, middle grade readers, and everyone who likes a good scare. The stories combine the monsters and mystery of Goosebumps with the surprise endings of The Twilight Zone. They are the perfect scary stories to read on Halloween, in the dark, around the campfire, or under the covers at night with a flashlight.

Be warned. This bloodcurdling book contains eight terrifying tales. Read a scare … if you dare!

#1: ZOMBIE KING
Bryce doesn’t want to dress up as something silly for Halloween. He wants to be a zombie. He even calls himself the Zombie King. Does he get his wish in the graveyard on a haunted foggy night?

#2: GHOST IN THE GRAVEYARD
Beneath the eerie glow of the Harvest Moon, Noah and his friends sneak into the cemetery for a game of Ghost in the Graveyard. While getting in is a challenge, getting out may be impossible.

#3: SECRET OF THE SINKHOLE
Brady, Calvin, and Troy discover a sinkhole in a Florida orange grove. There are police cars and flashing lights all around, but no other people. When they climb into the hole, the boys discover the frightening truth about how—and what—causes sinkholes to form.

#4: TAR PIT TERROR
The fossils of many prehistoric animals—from dire wolves to mastodons—have been found in the La Brea Tar Pits. When Liam and Charlotte discover a saber-toothed cat’s paw, they realize that not all fossils want to be found.

#5: HAPPY HAIRY BIRTHDAY
It’s Cody Wolf’s birthday and a party waits for him. To get there, he takes a dangerous short cut. Halfway along, a snarling werewolf appears in his path. Cody runs but the werewolf pursues. The chase in on!

#6: DEEP GREEN SEA
Emma and her family return wearily home after a hurricane. The devastation left behind looks like a zombie apocalypse. But are zombies the scariest things that can rise from the ruin?

#7: NO. 13 PENCIL
Jackson is an amazing artist. His drawings of monsters, beasts, and witches are realistic and terrifying.
What happens when the creatures come to life?

#8: SLEEPING BEAR DOOM
Many legends surround the majestic and mysterious Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes. What caused the dunes to form? Why do they continue to grow year after year? Are the dunes really devouring the surrounding land like a ravenous beast? Caleb and Katie wonder many things as they begin to climb. Will the answers they find allow them to escape?

Great5 star

I loved this book especially the hangers . Man I love cliff hangers. The scariness of the stories were absolutely petrifying but as a nine year old kid iI loved it. Even though I’m nine I don’t think kids my age should be reading books like this. Even though the words were good (no cursing) it could make you have nightmares. All in all I loved this book as much as a twelve year old boy who likes horror and thriller it’s great😎😎😎😎😎😎55

I liked how the words were all so unique and how it was really detailed. I like books like that. One thing though. I was hoping there would be more than 7-8 stories. Maybe you could add more stories. I loved it though. AMAZINGGGGGG55
