My now 10 year old read them when she was 7. I used to read them to her and then she'd take over. To be honest I was amazed she never had nightmares. They were really quite scary (some of them). Funnily enough she reckons she couldn't read them now she's older for that reason.
For me as an adult imagining a child in that situation the books often put them in was probably scarier than reading it as a child. She saw them as adventures. I saw them as kids being terrorised by creepy as hell clowns and monsters.

My 7 yr old is devouring these books with no nightmares either.
We saw the film first and that got him interested, maybe in a way that softened his introduction to them?
