And then her head fell off

In the early 90s I read a children/young adult book of short horror stories. One of these stories was about a girl who wore a red scarf all the time.

When the girl finally removes the scarf we learn that her head isn't attached.

Can anyone remember the name of this book?

  • The answer and the story identification were indeed duplicates, but our memories were vastly different. Glad to see the answer either way. – James Tomasino Nov 14 '12 at 16:55

    What's interesting is that in this question it was a "red scarf", in the linked question it was a "black ribbon", and in the accepted answer to the linked question it was a "green ribbon". – Mark Beadles Nov 14 '12 at 17:33

I think you are looking for this -

"The Girl With the Green Ribbon Around her Neck" and it's in a children's book called "In a Dark Dark Room and Other Scary Stories." It's by Alvin Schwartz.
