Alvin Schwartz's early works for children focused on the American political system and social issues. With 1972's A TWISTER OF TWISTS, A TANGLER OF TONGUES, his first collection of folklore for children, Schwartz's career found a new direction. Schwartz is perhaps best known for his wildly popular collections of ghost stories such as SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK.
