This story has been told in many different ways and by many different writers, but Schwartz’s version of this tale, which appears in his book In a Dark, Dark Room and Other Scary Stories is one that’s great to read to your kids. It’s about a hitchhiker that picks up a mysterious girl with a green ribbon around her neck. If you’re not already familiar with that story, we won’t spoil it for you. It might frighten very young children though.
