The Cuckoo Clock of Doom (Goosebumps #28)
When his father brings home an antique cuckoo clock, Michael is cautioned not to touch it, but he turns back the hands and suddenly he is getting younger by the minute--a year younger to be exact. Ages 9-12.
Lembro-me do quão difícil era encontrar livros desta colecção em Portugal. No entanto, comprava sempre sem qualquer hesitação todos os que ia encontrando. 'O Feitiço do Relógio Cuco' sempre foi um dos que me mais fascinou, apenas pelo título, mas nunca tive o prazer de encontrar.
Foi apenas já como adulto que o consegui finalmente ler e apercebi-me que ,em geral, já não gosto tanto de ler este tipo de literatura infa...more
Oh, I just love Tara. I'd hate her for my sister, but shes a book star, annoying, but entertaining. Anyways. I'm guessing RL wrote this book when he was in a better mood, because this one was better than the previous three in the series. As an author I can say that creativity comes out when you are in a good mood. The last three looked like RL was going through a divorce or something, just wasn't much effort put into them. This one was much different and much better....more
A wholesome read for all ages! :DR.L. Stine
The premise of this book is simple yet entertaining. Twelve-year-old Mike Webster has a REALLY, REALLY evil sister called Tara. She ruins pretty much everything he does. She also ruins his birthday, gets him seen in his undies by his crush, and gets him beat up.

Michael Webster always seems to be getting into trouble, and he knows why: his bratty little sister, Tara, who seems to have no problem getting his parents to believe whatever she says. Michael's Dad order's a grandfather clock, and tells the family that he was told by the shopkeeper that there is an error on the clock. He firmly tells Michael and Tara that they are both not to touch the clock, but Tara does, and gets caught, prompting Michael to further get her in trouble, so he goes and change...more
A premissa ficou para sempre gravada na minha memória - talvez por isso ainda hoje sinta um especial fascínio pelas viagens no tempo.
This is R. L. Stine's foray into time travel. It's a typical story about a boy caught in a time warp who keeps going further and further back through time everytime he wakes up after messing with an antique cuckoo clock. I really liked this one, and its the first book in the series I ever remember reading. Great book for kids.
Read from October 4, 2013 - October 4, 2013
