Review: Zombie Halloween


Zombie Halloween
Zombie Halloween by R.L. Stine

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



Book description:
The infamous, Most Wanted Goosebumps characters are out on the loose and after you. Just in time for Halloween, a super special edition!

Kenny Manzetti was the new kid in town. His family moved back in to an old house to help take care of his grandfather. Everyone in his new neighborhood is obsessed with zombies--even Grandpa Mo. But then a new family moves in next door and there choice in furniture is...interesting.

Kenny is convinced that there is something strange about the new neighbors but his parents won't listen to him. So Kenny and his friends go in for a closer look. A bad idea on any day but definitely the wrong choice around Halloween. Will Kenny survive long enough to go trick or treating?

With an extended page count this special edition is a scream!




REVIEW:

My brother, who is now 30, was a huge Goosebumps fan as a young reader. The Goosebumps books, by R. L. Stine, have a long history of scaring the bejeebies out of young readers. This installment with children living near a graveyard & the fear of the zombies possibly looming outside does not disappoint. I received a free copy of this young readers book free of charge to provide an honest review of.

I love that good, clean, spook books like this are still being written, and are still so popular among children 8, 9 & up who want a good scare with lots of action and suspense. Even as an adult, I get a little creep from the fast moving action as opposed to the grown up (slow moving) books I usually read.

Let's hear it for the master author for young readers over the past few decades ~ R.L. Stine.

Many boys (& I'm sure some girls) wouldn't even be reading at all if they weren't able to get their hands on Goosebumps books!
