He just keeps eating, and eating, and eating... Sam Kinny used to be a picky eater. He hated to try new foods.

But not anymore. Now he eats everything he sees.

Paste to pepper. Dishwashing soap, and dog food, and dirt.


Sam wonders: can it be because of the weird spice Aunt Sylvie put in his macaroni and cheese?

I've devoured this book once, and I did it again! I forgot how nerve-wrecking it was, especially the end (I'm not a spoiler so I won't say what happens) I recommend this splendid (but short) book for everyone ;)

I seriously love these kinds of books. It is made for adolescents yet I enjoy it.. What does that say about me? R.L. Stine's books are the ones that you can read in one sitting for a good rewinding and relaxing night, preferably before you go to bed.

Yet again, R.L. Stine has caught me with his twisted endings, despite my age, I still love a good fright in these epic tales. I devoured this book in less than a day...

Just... what? Rambling nonsense even by Ghosts of Fear Street standards. I'll save you a hundred pages. He's a living doll. It doesn't explain anything, it doesn't make a cool, cruel or spooky twist, it just is. He freaks out about his need to eat weird stuff for a whole book, there's a curse and then there isn't, his tongue gets huge, and then we find out he's just a doll that came to life. What.

What I thought of the story was funny, shocking, and cool. What my favorite was that a boy named, Sam Kinny who disliked everything but foods the color of white. When he has a curse from what he thinks of his friend's wierd aunt spice placed in his ice-cream. Now he starts eating everything no human would eat.

This book was very kiddy and it wasn't as interesting as the rest were. I mean, the ending was really good but all the events that led up to the ending, it was really predictable and I felt like I lost interest a lot.

My actual rating is 2.5 stars.

I honestly didn't see that ending coming. This was a pretty good story, but I have read better books in this series.
