The Thrill Ride Begins!

STARE INTO THE WOODEN FACE OF FEAR! Britney Crosby thinks her cousin Ethan is pretty weird - and she happens to be right. Ethan won't stop tormenting Britney with an old ventriloquist's dummy. And the puppet has plans for Britney, too!

Next, someone will be offered a vacation at a popular "scream park". An entire week for free? You'd have to be a real dummy to refuse that! But some guests aren't allowed to escape HorrorLand after just six days and seven frights....

Good clean scary fun

What made the experience of listening to Goosebumps HorrorLand, Book 1 the most enjoyable?

My daughter got really caught up in the story. She was enthralled, a littled scared, a little grosed out and completely entertained.

What other book might you compare Goosebumps HorrorLand, Book 1 to and why?

Creep of the deep. But this one had a little extra something in it.

What about Alissa Hunnicutt’s performance did you like?

Fun.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The dummy was pretty frightening in its own way. At one point my daughter commented that she thought the book was too scary yet refused to stop listening. No nightmares as she stuck it out and the adventure was all explained. My daughter was engrosed in the story from the beginning. I think she is a bit young for the series but she was checking them out in the school library hiding and reading them so I allowed it. However if the child is easily frightened or does not understand that the stories are not real - this particular story might be one to wait on.

Any additional comments?

I appreciate that she can use her imagination and listen while playing or driving. Saves the parent from the annoying blabbering yellow character and pink friend on tv and creates dialogue. My husband and I enjoyed hearing them also. From an adult perspective they are a scream!

Worth the Listen

***About This Story***
Revenge of the Living Dummy starts off with a great hook: two scared girls are digging up a grave in a cemetery during a dark thunder storm. You don't know why. Britney, the main narrator, takes the listener back a few weeks to the arrival of her cousin, Ethan, and his ventriloquist dummy, Mr. Badboy.

If you read any of the R. L. Stine books as a kid in the 90s (I did), you may remember Slappy from the Night of the Living Dummy books. Mr. Badboy is basically the same dummy. In this book, he makes trouble for Britney and her friend Molly much in the same way Slappy used to--pranks, jokes, and petty vandalism. How will they rid themselves of this menace?

***Kid's Reaction***
My stepdaughter, 11, was bouncing in her seat and crying out before the first chapter had even finished. She quoted the book for a week straight (most have a chant or single line of speech that is repeated like a catch phrase) and requested to listen to the story every time we got into the car. Because we visit the local amusement park during Halloween, she loved the idea of Horrorland and is even more excited to go this year. All in all, she rates this book a solid 5/5 stars.

**'Adult's Reaction***
My husband isn't as much of a fan of these books as I am. He rolls his eyes at the childish thrills and dramatic situations, which aren't that intense as an adult, I admit. However, I find the books to be charming, fun, and easily the most entertaining audiobooks we've found for my stepdaughter. They inspire her imagination and add a level of thrill to the dark that she enjoys.

The appropriate age-level for these books will vary depending on your individual child. There is no swearing or death, but there are some mildly inappropriate situations (taunting, pranking, sneaking out of the house, vandalism, stealing parents' property, etc). If anything, it's a good conversation-starter between parents and kids about acceptable behaviors.
