Discover the original bone-chilling adventures that made Goosebumps one of the bestselling children's book series of all time!
Something scary is happening in GOOSEBUMPS HORRORLAND, the all-new, all-terrifying series by R. L. Stine. Just how scary? You'll never know unless you crack open this classic prequel!
Discover the fan-favorite thriller and chiller that first introduced the world to the wooden face of fear. The puppet who pulls all the strings. None other than Slappy the Dummy!

So we have slowly started trying to read one goosebumps book a month. K is really starting to enjoy the books more and more. So we finally got to read Night of the Living Dummy and we both were kind of surprised that Slappy didn't do all the tricks and meanness through out the book since we are being introduced to him. Though we got surprised at the end and LOVED it.

In this book we are with a set of twins who if one does something the other one has to do it too. 
Kris and Lindy! When they find a dummy this starts off the feud between them especially when Lindy starts getting jobs to do ventriloquist at parties Kris wants to do the same thing. 
Lindy names her dummy Slappy and when Kris gets her own she names him Mr. Wood. Though it seems that Mr. Wood is the one that ends up coming to life. Oh boy the things that are said Kris finds herself in hot water multiple times. 
Can they get rid of Mr. Wood before it is too late? Or will he make them his slaves? Who knows just read to find out!
I loved goosebumps as a kid and I am so glad that my son is starting to get into this wonderful series now.
