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....

My children ages 3 -11 ask to listen every time we get in the car. Makes the long car ride fun. It scared them and they loved it :)
My daughter got really caught up in the story. She was enthralled, a littled scared, a little grosed out and completely entertained.
Creep of the deep. But this one had a little extra something in it.
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.
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!
