24 Children’s Stories That Still Give Us the Creeps:

[CW: animal

The Tailypo

A hungry farmer and
his three dogs eat the tail of a strange creature (it’s black with yellow
eyes). The creature returns, demanding the return of its ‘tailypo.’ It kills
the three dogs over the course of three nights and ends its reign of terror by
killing the farmer.

“This was read to my 1st or 2nd grade class in the
library and haunted me for years to come. Having looked into it as an adult, I
have learned that it’s Southern folklore. Some versions include evisceration of
the farmer so the thing can get its tail back. Why would anyone read this to
children?!” — Submitted by Rebecca, Massachusetts
