Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for GOOSEBUMPS WANTED: THE HAUNTED MASK

"...this book offers a great opportunity to rediscover what makes Stine so special: his swift characterizations, icky ideas, and prose that offers the exact right amount of cover-your-eyes detail." -Booklist

"Pure, Goosebumps–style terror-by-formula, polished through use to such a high gloss that it slides along frictionlessly–a worthy celebration of the series' 20th anniversary." -Kirkus Reviews

Children's Literature - Magi Evans
Twelve-year-old Jackson Stander works hard at being nice. He never lies or does anything that would get him in trouble, unlike his sister Rachel, who lies constantly and tries to get Jackson in trouble. Of course, no one ever believes Rachel’s lies, and no one thinks Jackson would ever do anything naughty. But then the two siblings spend a week at their grandfather’s house. Grandpa is a collector of many things, including ventriloquist’s dummies. Jackson is attracted to an ugly one named Slappy, who has an evil reputation. Grandpa says this one is just a copy, but his companion, Edgar, warns Jackson that saying aloud certain words would cause Slappy to come alive. Jackson is surprised when he opens his suitcase at home and finds Slappy inside. But nothing could prepare him for what happens when Rachel says the magic words out loud. Suddenly Slappy comes to life, and compels Jackson, whom Slappy calls “Son of Slappy,” to do horrific things. Jackson tries to resist, but it appears that Slappy is going to be in control from now on. Part of a new “Goosebumps” series called “Most Wanted,” this title will appeal to young readers who like their horror stories with a bit of humor. The chilling twist at the end is a feature of many of the original “Goosebumps” books, and will satisfy the most rabid fan. Reviewer: Magi Evans; Ages 8 to 11.

This is book called Son of Slappy is a great classical book from the goosebump series. The authors name is R.L. Stine. This book has a 12 year old boy named Jackson Stander. Jackson is every parent’s dream. He doesn’t get into trouble, he always does his homework, and he never ever lies. His teachers all trust him completely. He even volunteers at the local Youth Center. But that was all before he met the dummy Slappy. The dummy has changed his life. Then Slappy starts wreaking havoc in his house. Not only has Jackson have to deal with this evil doll he must now earns everyone’s trust back . This boy is a really nice and bright kid always helping out like entertaining the kids at YC. But when he goes to his grandpa’s house and finds a doll named Slappy his life changed after that. Many things start to change after he took the dummy from his grandpa. I think is book is a great thriller for people that love horror books which makes this book the perfect thing to read. There are many twist in this book from a normal day to really horrific day. This book has always been my favorite one. Slappy is a really interesting character that is like a mysterious human but is a wooden dummy that can talk. He is a really evil dummy spreading it around the world. It’s like a king wanting to rule the world using violence to achieve that goal. That is how Slappy does to achieve his goal is spread his evil throughout the world. Beware of this evil dummy don’t let it get to you.

I really reccomed this book to anyone who likes intense things and scary things. Really i just read these books for fun even though they dont scare me. R.L.Stine put really good effort into these books and on an interview he said " Some things arnt scary its just the way you think about it." I would really reccomend this series but not as a read aloud because everyone thinks differently. :) this is an amazing book about a dummy and two kids. The dummies name is slappy and he isnt a type of doll you would think he would be. Slappy joins a family who doesnt even know his secret! Only one person knows his secret but who is it? I would reccomend getting this book or any of these books at the public library just in case they are too scary for you or not scary enough. I hope this helped happy reading! :)
