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 - Kristi Bernard
Noah Bienstock, better known as Bean, has a strange and recurring dream every night. He dreams of being underwater with a monster pulling him deeper into its depths. He even finds himself, especially when under stress, having this same dream during the day. His mother thinks the dream occurs because he is worried about swim tryouts. But, Bean and his best friend Lissa know it is because of Harlan, the big, ugly bully of the school and his constant pushing, shoving, and confiscating of lunch money. It has turned Bean into a quivering mess. When the new neighbor kid Monroe shows up, things begin to feel even more strange for Bean. You see, Monroe has no problem standing up to Harlan, but with a little convincing from Bean he does back down. In his anger, Monroe decides to run it off to calm himself down. From a distance Bean can see fur and fangs. Could his new found friend and neighbor be a real monster? Is this the dream that Bean should now consider a warning? It will be up to him to find the courage and confront the monster. Stine has created another amazing tale of horror and intrigue any young reader can sink their teeth into. If parents and teachers are having trouble getting boys interested in reading, this story is a real attention grabber. Vivid imagery sets the tone for a fun and fast-paced read.

Goosebumps "most wanted" monsters return in all-new tales intended to terrify. Twelve-year-old Noah "Bean" Bienstock is frightened of monsters, and he's been having awful dreams of a huge, dark beast dragging him underwater. He's so bothered by the dream that he sees monsters everywhere: running down the street, in the school's pool, even in his best friend's apartment. He knows they're real, and he's sure they're after him. Could Monroe, the new kid in Sternom House Apartments, be the monster? Could it be Harlan, the bully who takes Bean's lunch money every day? Why isn't Bean's best friend Lissa more helpful? Why aren't his parents more supportive? Is he going crazy? When the dream changes, and the monster tells Bean he's next, Bean really wigs out. Stine's new Goosebumps subseries recycles monsters that starred in the original volumes. The writing is repetitive and formulaic, but it's a formula that has worked for over 20 years: silly/scary covers with only a few frights inside, chapter-ending cliffhangers resolved in the first few sentences of the next chapter and a twist ending. Bean's first-person narration is full of hyperbolic, goggle-eyed mugging and lots of horrifying italics! Nothing new to see here; for hard-core fans only. (Horror. 8-12)
