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!

Jason Segel's creative world of Nightmares

Any additional comments?

I think it was so awesome that Jason read his own book! Who better to read the book than the person that wrote it! I thought it was creative how he built this whole different world of nightmares. I think it's a great book for kids! It touches on the issues of losing a mother at a young age and facing your fears. I think he did a great job and I read somewhere that he struggled with nightmares when he was a kid...that's where the base of this book came from!
