Stay Out of the Basement (Goosebumps #2)
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

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
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
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

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

Saya telat banget kayaknya baru baca goosebumps sekarang. Maklum masa kecil saya dipedalaman, buku-buku kayak gini gak ada.
Orang-orang yang baca buku ini pasti punya greget dan kenangan sendiri, sedangkan saya ya baca biasa-biasa aja ...more
I'm gonna read like it's 1994! I was 6 when I first started these books, borrowed 'Night Of The Living Dummy' from one of my friends and I was hooked from there. I read them all through the 90's and loved them. I only stopped when the 'Goosebumps 2000' series came out but I'm not sure if that's because they were rubbish or I was just getting older and had started to lose interest.
Stay Out of the Basement is the Goosebumps book I have the most clear memory of ...more
