The series is geared towards extremely young audiences (not that this stops the stories from being surprisingly violent), and while the stories may be scary for an eight-year old, older audiences will find them more cheesy than anything. Instead, what makes the books so scary (and [[MoralGuardians controversial]]), on the other hand, are the illustrations that accompany them. Using little more than black ink and water, Stephen Gammell has given us some of the most notoriously terrifying pictures you'll ever see in a book. So much so that the Scary Stories are on the American Library Association's list of most challenged books (ie, MoralGuardians demanding they be pulled from library shelves), being the number one most challenged book for over a decade.
