I think that this book is really weird and kind of confusing. There's this kid named Dougie, and he is obsessed with the legend of the Beast of Baskerville. He tries to scare everyone to death with the legend and everything about it. It turns out that J.J. the weird kid is Jimmy Leeds who is the beast. He drags 13 kids into a sewer and makes them sing "Happy Birthday" to J.J. so that he can be a normal kid again, but he doesn't tell them that once they sing to they will be a beast for either 13 ...more

I was lucky enough to be able to read 3 books from this series:
The Beast of the Baskerville
Invasion of the Appleheads
The Little Magic Shop of Horrors
Normally I would do a book by book review, but I wanted to make sure that these authors did not fall into the all too easy trap of having each book of a series essentially just is a repeat of the previous book. So before I recommended these books to anyone, I had to be sure.
Happily, the sisters manage to avoid the most common pitfalls of a series
I have mixed emotions about this eerie little book. On one hand it reads like a script for "Scary Movie". It goes from being hokey and laughable to slightly eerie. On the other hand, my students love it. I think maybe I'm just too old to figure out elementary student's level of humor and horror. I wouldn't buy a hardback copy until I tied out a paperback copy on my students.

Somewhat creepy book. The ending was a little unexpected and might not satisfy those who like a happy ending. I guess some kids really like the series since I've had several ask for it.

For me this was written in too a juvenile form. Probably great for a young audience. Only read it because it's kind of a classic and I had never read it.
Like all "Deadtime Stories", this one had me on the edge of my seat, sending chills up my spine as I read with ALL the lights on. One thing I thought was great was that we had no idea if this was actually going to be a real "beast" or someone just being a jerk until the very end. These books are masterful in that they create terrifying stories with easy language--I would say that they are better than Goosebumps. A little gorey, but great.
This book was just like the other one I read. It is really awesome.
