    Wonderful Kid's Book!!!

    The Goosebumps series of books are great books for younger readers. Our children have read almost everyone, some of them multiple times. The books are easy to read, short enough to keep the attention span of most children and keep the children wanting more.

    I Also Recommend:

    I am a 6th grade student and this is my book report.

    I am a 6th grade student reviewing The Blob That Ate Everyone by R.L Stine.There are three main characters in this book.Alex,Mike,and Hailey.They are some neighborhood kids that are always looking for something to do.The story takes place in a small city.<BR/><BR/>Alex finds an old typewriter and starts to write stories with it.The stories magecly come true.He didn't notice until he writes A story called the Blob That Ate Everyone.The story suddenly becomes true and the blob starts to eat the whole town.He and his friends must find a way to destroy the blob.The underlying part of the story is that you should always belive in your friends and family.<BR/><BR/>I connected to this book because I like hanging with my friends like Alex does in the book.Some related books are Goosbumps Stay Out Out Of The Basement and Goosbumps The Killer Clown.<BR/><BR/>I liked this book because it is new and I like to read Goosbumps.I recomend this book to anyone who likes reading Goosbumps.

    Good

    I read this on the plane home from Florida, and it was a good story. I like the plot twists and such. The only con I thought was that it wasn't one of the scary ones.

    It's A horror book but a magical adventure at the same time.

    I read the book 'Goosebumps, The Blob that ate Everyone.' I thought it was really neat to be able to read. In a way it was a horror story, but also very intresting. It told about a boy that went to a store on a rainy night. The lights were on, the cashier wasn't there, and the doors were open. He has an old type writer fall on to his head. For a while, it has a nasty affect on him resulting with a severe headache, but soon he got over it. This type writer wasn't just a type writer. Whoever would write something on it, it would all come true. For good or bad. Find out the mysterious, wonderous world after this type writer gets put into a world of a little boy. I feel that this book brings your mind into a whole new world. I mean, it's almost as if you're really there, or you're the main character. I also feel that minor characters could and should be used a whole lot more. They were only used pretty much in one part of the story and were only used for horror. I thought they could each have a line or two. I also thought the story could have been a little longer and they could have extended the book. I thought it was short but, let me tell you now, you'll never forget this book. It will stay with you forever and will never leave your mind. I thought the author put a lot of sensation and feeling into his book. Something happens at the end where he puts the most expression and feeling into his words. I recommend this book to younger children or teens that love mysteries. It's just a beginner book that doesn't really talk about things in real life. That's why it's fiction. It is supposed to be edge topping and make you want to keep on reading. Reading about what happens after this and then that. That's exactly what it does, too. I recommend that people read this book for fun. It's a great book to read on boring days to bring excitement in your life. When I started reading this book, I started to notice it was interesting. I discovered it was a fiction book. I didn't realize it until about 20 pages in because the book is so realistic. This is why I have recommended this book to children.

    Be Careful What You Write!

    R. L. Stine is an absolute genius! I'm in 8th grade and I still love these books! Some of them will actual scare you, and give you second thoughts about going to sleep at night. My favourite aspect of this book was the idea of a typewriter that brings everything you write to life. And of course the ending was probably the best kind I've ever read in a book. You should definitely read this!

    Blob That Ate Everyone (Goosebumps Series #55)

    This was the best book I ever read! I read many Gooesbumps books, and other books, but I did not find one as good as this one! When the blue sparks come out of the typewriter, every sentence comes to life! This is my favorite book! You should read it.
