As a kid I loved Goodbumps, Bunnicula and Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark which are all great series of scary stories for reluctant readers, but what else is there? This Halloween don’t miss some of these other fun ghost stories for middle graders.
Wait Till Helen Comes: A Ghost Story
By Mary Downing Hahn
I read it as an adult and thought it was the right amount of scary for kids who like scary.

This one is a fun mystery tied up with a ghost story.

This is the first in the Gilda Joyce series. Gilda seriously cracks me up. Love this series.
By Neil Gaiman
This book won a Newberry Medal. It’s full of Ghosts but not too scary after the first scene.
By Ray Bradbury
This is a fun creepy story which I thoroughly enjoyed. It’s also a movie.
