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
The book starts with DR Brewer (he is scientist who research on plants) shifts his experiments into the basement because he gets fired from his job. One day Casey and Margaret (Dr Brewer’s kids) went into the basement to call their dad but unfortunately they get yelled at by their d...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
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

8. You could tell that Casey... thinks he/she is cool.
9. What is an opinion? That is the most scariest mon...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
The second book in R. L. Stine's Goosebumps series, Stay Out of the Basement has a bit of a science fiction feel to it. When Margaret Brewer and her brother Casey sneak down into the basement, they see pla...more

WHAT DO WE DO? WHAT DO WE DO?" is technically my summary of this book. Added bonus? OH NO, DAD BUILT A PLANT HIM AND NOW WE...more

Margaret and Casey's dad has been down in the basement ever since he lost his job. Now while they're mom's visiting their aunt at the hospital, the kids notice more weird things going on and decide to take a look down in the basement that their dad specifically warned them not to go. Worth reading if you loved the Goosebumps books.
I can find one way to connect this book to the real world. This book can connect to kids who have workaholic parents. The father in this book was an out of work workaholic(how ironic)! So a lot of ki...more

This book goes under ' a science fiction book'. It is one of my favourite categories because it is 1/4 scientific ideas and 3/4 fictional ideas.
My favourite quote from the book was ' Dad, why are you sprouting out of your head'???? This was a very funny quote and quite weird. His dad is a scientist who is fired from his job so he starts doing experiments in his basement. Whenever his children go down to the basement, they get yelled at by their...more
So yeah, I liked it. Their dad eats leaves, I eat books. Just sayin. :)
