The Green Ribbon

My elementary school days have long gone, but I still remember this story very well. I remember reading it in an anthology of horror stories for children aged 7 to 12, called 'In A Dark, Dark, Room'. But whereas the other stories were merely about preternatural mischief, 'The Green Ribbon' stood out, for me, for its particularly macabre content. Today, thirteen years after I was a student in third grade, it still sends a shiver running up my spine.
