They're baa-ack! Make way for the bestselling children's series of all time! With a fresh new look, GOOSEBUMPS is set to scare a whole new generation of kids. So reader beware--you're in for a scare!
When dummies speak . . . everybody listens!
Trina O'Dell's dad used to have a ventriloquist act. That's why he has all those dummies in the attic. He calls it his Dummy Museum. There's a dummy with freckles. And one with a sneer just like Rocky. Trina and her brother, Dan, think the dummies are pretty cool.
But now there are voices in the attic. And dummies keep showing up in the strangest places.
No way those dummies could be alive! Right?

So K and I started this book after he watched the movie Goosebumps. We tried a Goosebumps book before and he said it was scary so when I saw that I had this book on my shelf I figured lets try it and see. I was very surprised that he literally enjoyed the book and wasn't scared at all. I loved how the chapters were only about 2 pages maybe 2 1/2 pages long. K really enjoyed trying to guess who was the "new" dummy that came to Trina and Dan's home. 
You see there is a new dummy that their dad has gotten but then weird things start happening especially when their cousin Zane comes to stay with them. Because dummies can not believe can they? 
I believe the Goosebumps books are perfect for the young kids especially those that can read by themselves. To me it is the right kind of scary there is no gory or killing. 
K has said he wants to read more books like this so now this has prompted me to starting buy a new Goosebumps book once a month and start up our collection.
