Known for telling monster stories, Lucy while going back for her roller blades, she left behind at the library, notices something strange about her librarian Mr. Mortman. This one was, I don't know, that ending seemed a bit dark for a kids book. It just went by quick you know? The book was alright.

Lucy is always making up monster stories for her little brother... and always getting in trouble for it. A late stay at the library, however, proves to Lucy that there's a REAL monster in town- the librarian. Lucy nearly gets caught by him time and again until she is able to prove to her parents that he's a monster. Her parents have the librarian for dinner- not to dinner, for dinner- they're monsters, too.

12 year old Lucy always thought that Mr. Mortman was just the weird librarian whose hands where always wet and had a fondness for turtles...until the day she forgot her rollerblades at the library and had to return to get them...there she stumbles upon Mr. Mortman talking to himself. Then she sees something she can hardly believe, before her eyes Mr. Mortman begins a strange transformation, eats lives flies and scares her half to death. She runs home to tell her family...but Lucy has always had the unfortunate habit of telling tall tales about monsters and frightening her brother, so they don't believe her. What's Lucy to do? She begins a systematic investigation of the monster problem becoming progressively bolder about spying on Mr. Mortman, who begins to suspect that SHE knows his secret, putting her in even greater danger, because no matter what she does, she simply can't get ANYONE, even her best friend, to believe her! Overall, the Girl Who Cried Monster is an interesting twist on the traditional Boy Who Cried Wolf story and the added bonus of Stine's usual Twilight Zone-esque ending that the reader KNOWS is coming, yet never expects what we are treated to in the end! I give #8 in the Goosebumps series five stars, it's one of the better stories I've read thus far, it manages to be simple in detail and suspenseful, building to a nice climax and a slightly abrupt, but suitably twisted end.

Goosebumps,The Girl Who Cried Monster The library will never be the same again! People are tired of hearing Lucy's tall tales about monsters. She did not care if they believed her until it really mattered. Now there really was a monster in her neighborhood. What will she have to do to make people believe her? Will she get the proof she needs before the monster knows what she is up to? I found this book to be a real page turner and impossible to put down. On a scale of 1 to 5 stars I would give these book 4 stars. Check this book out at your local library in the fiction section if you dare!

The Girl Who Cried Monster by R.L. Stine was about a girl named Lucy Dark. She liked to tell monster stories to her brother. Then one day she really saw a monster, but since she told so many monster stories no one believed her, so she tried to prove that Mr. Mortman was a monster. I think the lesson of this story is not to lie because one day what you lie about might come true, and no one will believe you. I did not like how the story ended because I thought the book ended to fast. I thought it should have been longer.
