Suggestions wanted: Scary stories for five year olds

One of Ben's friends has his birthday on Halloween, so Ben will be attending a combination birthday/Halloween party this year. My wife has asked me to be the teller of scary stories at this party.

I have "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark" volumes 1-3, but only a few of those stories seem appropriate to the audience. I also fondly remember the story of La Llorona from my childhood in Santa Fe, when I used to listen to Joe Hayes.

Just wondering if anyone can link me to any good sites or books with stories that are scary, but not TOO scary.

    Try the bible.

  2. The American Folklore website has a number of resources. They also have a series of "Spooky Stories" books, one for each U.S. state. Your local big bookstore will probably have your state's book.
