Missy | 199 comments I'm in! I bought my daughter this book because the illustrations scares me as a kid. Gosh, how I love this book!!

thanks for joining Missy!


Mina Chrys | 18 comments can I join? not being from the US, Inwas not familiar with it as a child, but muy nieces and nephews love horror stories almost as much as me.


Latasha (latasha513) | 10645 comments Mod
sure thing Mina :)


Erin *Proud Book Hoarder* (erinpaperbackstash) | 875 comments I re-read this last year, it's fun stuff. I was lucky enough to find another copy with the original illustrations, which adds a lot to the stories and charm of the book. Without them it's not as good IMO. Hope you all enjoy.


Latasha (latasha513) | 10645 comments Mod
Thanks. The copy I have has the illustrations in it. This will be my first revisit since childhood.

I did! My nephew let me borrow them. (So cute swapping books with a 10-year-old.)

That's great Michelle! My niece is 9 & I keep trying to get her to read Harry potter or wizard of oz but she just ain't having it :(


message 20: by Michelle (new)

Michelle Barclay (shellcastle) | 21 comments Oh, no! I traded him for the fourth potter book. Maybe her school will assign it. His teacher assigned the first and he couldn't stop after that.


Latasha (latasha513) | 10645 comments Mod
Lol! I hope so.


Amanda Lyons (amandamlyons) Percy Jackson is another to try. My son adores them and he's 9 going on 10.


Latasha (latasha513) | 10645 comments Mod
Oh yes, I love Percy Jackson.

Michelle Barclay (shellcastle) | 21 comments 39 Clues too!


Latasha (latasha513) | 10645 comments Mod
I haven't heard of that one.


message 26: by Michelle (new)

Michelle Barclay (shellcastle) | 21 comments I read it after a few kids in my life showed interest. It's a fun series about a brother and sister who are part of this mysterious and eclectic family that goes on a mad worldwide hunt (pitted against each other) to find a mysterious prize that their grandmother (or aunt or something) sent them to find in her will. It's a bit Da Vinci Code for kids.


Latasha (latasha513) | 10645 comments Mod
Ok. I'll have to check those out

Addy | 4989 comments Rotflmao! I just read the Big Toe to my 5 yr old and scared the crap out of him twice with both endings! Kids are soo gullible:)


Latasha (latasha513) | 10645 comments Mod
Lol! That's awesome Addy! Lol, I love it!
