Publisher's Summary

Jason Segel, multitalented actor, writer, and musician, teams up with New York Times best-selling author Kirsten Miller for the hilariously frightening middle-grade novel Nightmares!, the first book in a trilogy about a boy named Charlie and a group of kids who must face their fears to save their town.

Sleeping has never been so scary. And now waking up is even worse!

Charlie Laird has several problems.

  • His dad married a woman he is sure moonlights as a witch.
  • He had to move into her purple mansion, which is NOT a place you want to find yourself after dark.
  • He can’t remember the last time sleeping wasn’t a nightmarish prospect. Like even a nap.

What Charlie doesn’t know is that his problems are about to get a whole lot more real. Nightmares can ruin a good night’s sleep, but when they start slipping out of your dreams and into the waking world - that’s a line that should never be crossed.

And when your worst nightmares start to come true...well, that’s something only Charlie can face. And he’s going to need all the help he can get, or it might just be lights-out for Charlie Laird. For good.

A Lot Of Fun!!

I really enjoyed this book! The storyline of a magical dreamland may not be the most unique, but the inventive descriptions and the added fun of the narration really does put a fresh feel to this story. Segel's narration really adds a lot to the audio version - it is a genuine performance that really makes it all the more fun! He has a great range for all of the different characters and voices.

And I think that, despite the youth of the main character, this is a book that will appeal to a wide range of ages - from the old to the young. And I think that blended families may particularly enjoy Charlie's story and his relationship with his stepmonster! It's a lot of fun and I am thrilled that there are two more books - I think I may save them to listen to over Halloween this year!

Superb!

This book has one of the best plots and most well developed main characters that I've read in a while. The reading by Segel is so accurate in characterization and tone that the story came to life and had me mesmerized and hanging on. A story I will put in the hands of my students who may not be brave enough to face the fears in their own lives. More, please!

Great plot and even better than expected narration

I'm a adult , without any children and I enjoyed the story very much so . Jason does so many different voices , without any breaks or hesitation . It's a shame that we don't have radio shows like back in the day , cause he'd be great at it ! Anyways , enjoyed it immensely.

nightmares a scary book

it was a very good listen Jason Segal Segal was very good at his job. the story was very good kind of young but it kept me interested all the way through.. I usually don't listen two books twice but I would suggest that my grandchildren read it very good
