The infamous, Most Wanted Goosebumps characters are out on the loose and after you.. Kelli and Shawn Anderson are not excited about having to move to another state - especially because their new home is directly next to a giant swamp. But their dad is a scientist and he's going down there to study the local flora and fauna. Unfortunately for Kelli and Shawn, there seem to be some very strange creatures that live around their house. They keep hearing about the legend of the Shaggedy, an ancient beast that lives far below the surface of the swamp and can cause a whole lot of damage. Can Kelli and Shawn convince their dad to move back home before it is too late?"

We actually got this for a good price as we bough this book along with another one from our school library. 
I have never read Here Comes the Shaggedy so I wasn't sure what it was going to be about. Looking at the cover it seems to have a creature almost like a snapping turtle. 
Instead of a snapping turtle it is a swamp beast, one that lives in the swamp near where Kellie and Shawn will be living, since they have to move. They will hear stories, and meet creepy people, but nothing will prepare them for what actually comes from the middle of the swamp. Maybe they shouldn't mess around with things they don't know much about.
For a Stine book it really was not that scary, we learn who is behind the swamp beast it was actually pretty neat how it all came about. K was in awe on that part. 
Overall it was a good read with a good story plot.
