Stay Out of the Basement (Classic Goosebumps #22)
Dr. Brewer is doing a little plant-testing in his basement. Nothing to worry about. Harmless, really.
But Margaret and Casey Brewer are worried about their father. Especially when they...meet...some of the plants he is growing down there.
Then they notice that their father is developing plantlike tendencies. In fact, he is becoming distinctly weedy...more

Judging a book by its cover (the other editions clearly show a human plant) I expected a completely different story. Like a monster in the basement killing all visitors or something, but it turned out alright.
One thing I realized after reading this book, was that ...more
One thing the books did have in common was a cliffhanger ending. Stine obviously uses this technique purposely. In the first book it felt very ...more
My copy of Stay Out of the Basement is with the original cover, a green very detailed hand coming out of the basement. This is the original edition from 1992, from when I was 10 years old. I have to say, the nostalgia of holding the same book I read almost 20 years ago is a high wate ...more
Paying homage to movies such as Little Shop of Horrors while maintaining an original and thrilling narrative, R.L. Stine has followed up his first Goosebumps book, Welcome To Dead House, with another fresh, taut story.
It seems to me that Stay Out of the Basement allows us a bit deeper of a look into the inner feelings and lives of these main characters, Casey and Margaret, ...more

Not the best installment of the series, but not the worst either, three leaves outta five.
So of course the rest of the book is a series of convoluted ways in getting the kids to go back dow ...more
This book was actually scary. In a way, scarier than an adult book would be because it is told in the point of view of a young child & her little brother, whose mom has to go to Arizona to be with her sick sister and leaves the kids alone with their insane father who spends literally ALL his time locked in the basement conduc ...more
