Can anyone recommend good "scary stories" for a first- or second-grade reading level?

Do you think the books are at that reading level, though? My DD loves the show. I just think the books are not on a first- or second-grade level.

My kids read them at that age.  My youngest is in 5th grade and well beyond Goosebumps.

 Unless your dd is reading above grade-level, Goosebumps might be one for you to read together.

For something more on a 1st-2nd gr level, you might try the Wiley and Grampa's Creature Features, by Kirk Scroggs. I'm not sure how scary they are, but last yr when I was volunteering in ds2's school library, a lot of 1st/2nd graders were checking those books out.

She's in kindergarten but on a 2nd-grade reading level. So finding books to entice her can be difficult. Because I don't think she's socially ready for bloody heads just because she can read and comprehend the words. :) So your recommendations are great. Thanks!
