The Destruction of Childhood Classics

Is nothing sacred?? Scary Stories 1, 2 and 3 traumatized me for life, in great part due to the absolutely nightmarish illustrations that Gammell contributed. I STILL see those images in my head decades later; they were truly that effective. Why on earth would anyone ruin the experience for new generations of horror-seekers by replacing the driving creative force of the series with generic Disneyesque drawings? This country's determination to shelter children has become embarrassing. Either let them experience the mind numbing terror or don't let them have the books at all!
