Description
In short lines, large type, and text broken into phrases, three more stories are told. Marcos, Leon, and "I" try to out-do each other with warnings against tasting things that may not be safe. Dire consequences and ridiculous outcomes take the boys to new heights of hilarity in these spooky tales from Australia, Italy, and Eastern Europe.
