There's something for everyone in this anthology of scary stories. Featuring tales that range from creepy to bone-chilling, from suspicious and strange to downright frightening, Michael Dahl's Really Scary Stories will come back to haunt you again and again.
Zak Nine and Erro are trapped! After hiding aboard a military ship, hoping to see an exciting space battle up-close, the two boys find themselves stuck on Alcatraz, a giant penal colony housing the galaxy's worst criminals. Now Zak, a human, and Erro, a boy from an alien world, are stuck trying to find a way to escape the notorious prison planet. Each book follows the boys' adventures across the planet as they desperately search for a way to escape and return home. Their travels lead them through various dangers, including poisonous seas, bottomless pits, flaming plains and more! Follow the boys' adventures as the two unlikely friends work together to Escape from Planet Alcatraz!
Zak Nine and Erro have come up with a brilliant plan to escape. They'll simply hide on board a prison ship and ride it to freedom on another planet! Unfortunately, the boys don't get far when the ship docks at one of Planet Alcatraz's metallic moons. The hollow sphere is magnetic, and the only way to walk on it is by wearing special magnetic boots. The boys are soon discovered and are forced to flee. But how will they escape when they're stuck floating inside a giant metal ball?
Young Quom Erro and his human friend Zak Nine are in trouble. They're stuck in Planet Alcatraz's most infamous jail cell: a huge metal cylinder that's sunk into the ground but open to the sky. The boys are certain they can climb out, but they quickly discover the cunning secret of the pit. When they make too many movements, the floor sinks and the pit grows even deeper. Will the boys manage to climb out or will their hopes dwindle as the circle of sky overhead shrinks to a distant dot?
