This is not Trevor just a redraw by him
Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark is a series of three collections of short horror stories for children, written by Alvin Schwartz and originally illustrated by Stephen Gammell. Each of the creatures were made as a fan art to the popular series.
these monsters attack if you hold a book of these stories and more and you say to tell you a story. as a result everybody in the same room will be cursed. every night a story will appear in the book containing somebody who got cursed by the book. then the events said in the story will happen to the mentioned person.
The Pale Lady
The pale lady is a large woman with small black eyes and a huge mouth. she also has some black hair. She also has a dress that seems to fuse with her skin
The Pale Lady seems like she enjoys taunting her victims by trapping them in places like merging hallways. and moving towards them at a very slow pace seemingly to increase fear of her victims. when she gets a hold on her target she will start to hug them and pull them into her flesh before disappearing
the pale lady has the ability to teleport by rising up from the ground (we are unsure of how her teleportation works, This is only an assumption.) She also has the ability to absorb others into her body. we don't know if it teleports the victim to another plane of existence or just kills them. she is also assumed to be able to teleport, in the movie the person who is targeted is trapped where multiple hallways merge and whenever the character tries to run down a hallway a copy of the play lady is moving towards him. we don't know if she is teleporting or simply can duplicate herself due to how the movie scene was filmed making it so we can only see one of her at a time.
The Jangly Man
The jangly man seems to be a rotten corpse that has been cut apart in most major joints then stitched back together.
The jangly man likes to be as efficient with his killings as possible. he also seems to be the only creature set out to murdering his victims instead of making them disappear. in the movie he is shown chocking his victim to death.
The jangly man has the ability to separate his stitches so he can fit through small spaces. he is also very flexible so he can bend in unnatural ways allowing faster movement through more complex spaces. he seems to be the only creature that can't teleport.
