Overview

Nightmare at the Book Fair by Dan Gutman

Trip Dinkleman hates to read. Hates, hates, hates it.

All he wants to do is play lacrosse. So when the president of the PTA asks Trip to help her out on his way to tryouts, he is not happy. He is even more not happy when a stack of books tumbles onto his head and knocks him out cold. And he is even more not happy when he wakes up and has absolutely no idea where he is. Now all he wants to do is get home. But after encountering a haunted house, aliens, talking animals, and much, much more, he realizes getting home might be just a little bit harder to do than he thought.

Love this book! It puts you at the edge of your seat. So suspensful. Truly amazing that dan gutman can come up with that book, unlike the christmas genie which i was very disappointed in. Nightmare at the book fair is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much better than christmas genie. I highly reccomend this book to readers 9+. Its kinda violent and really creepy at times. If you like that stuff and your under nine go ahead and read it. Who knows, you might like it!!!! Once again, i'm not saying that if your under nine your not alwed to read it, i'm just saying that it might creep you out a little bit. I'm eleven and it scared me. Great book!!!! You write some awesome stories, dan gutman!!!! This book is definitaley worth the $$$$$$!!!!!! Love, Bumble bee P.s. if you look at other customer reviews for other books or apps you might see me again! Feel free to write acustomer review on the same app or book that i wrote on if you have any questions and i'll get back to you as soon possible!!!! Have a blessed day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For many students a book fair is where you buy books, but for Trip it¿s a nightmare! Trip absolutely hates reading and the only thing he thinks about is lacrosse. Lionel, his friend also loves lacrosse and they are so close, like brothers.
In the first chapter Trip is going to lacrosse tryouts, but then he runs into the PTA President who asks him to help with the book fair. He agrees, but when two books fall on him the nightmare begins! As the Trip tries to get home, he runs into aliens, a haunted house and talking animals and so much more! So does he survive or not? I would recommend this book for 9-11 year olds.
When I read this book, I was at the tip of my seat. This book reminds me of my mom, she has crazy dreams also.
The author of this book is amazing! I love Dan Gutman¿s other books like Getting Air, and Virtually Perfect. He was born in New York in 1955. He attended Rutgers University. He graduated in 1977. He was studying physiology and decided to be an author. I hope that decision wasn¿t a nightmare for Dan Gutman.

I read the first few chapters then gave it to my 9 year old. He enjoyed it a lot. Each scenario of the "nightmare" is pretty creative, and filled with adventure. The book kept his interest. The chapters are kind of odd, each being a nightmare with no bridge to the next nightmare. That was ok though. Glad we got the book. The first chapter is about Dr. Psycho who has diabolical intent. If you think it's too much for your kids don't get the book. It was ok for us. kind of reminded me of some of the Goosebump stories. Other nightmares involve being on a football team, and other tame situations.

I got this book as a gift since I am the chair person of a book fair. The book was great until I got to almost the end when one of the characters ends up being transgendered. I have issues with the age range of 8-12 year olds reading about a character is a man in the story, but at one time was a female. I don't think this is something that an 8 year old should be reading. Thank goodness I read this before I gave it to a teacher to read to her class. It was very interesting until then. I am very disappointed in this since his other books have been great.
