2.5 it was ok it wasn't the worst book I have read, but it was just ok, I do love R.L. Stine. and if I was still a little kid I think I would like it more, but its just not my favorite. but its still sweet. and could help someone who's young maybe learn how to cope with death, but hopefully they won't start thinking that if someone dies they will magically come back to life. if you like R.L. Stine you can read and this is just my opinion you can make your own. ...more

The middle school had a contest that had the kids make a statue of their hero, and the winner would

I thought this was an amazing book with good dialogue and a creative background. Although, I think the story has nothing to do with the title, it has twists that you would never see coming, this truly is a good read.

I think this was the book that accompanies the Halloween movie since it came out at the same time. If you prefer books to movies then I'd choose it, but this movie is just as entertaining and it even has Christopher Lloyd in it. Who could resist that? It's become a holiday tradition in our house. ...more
