Ahhh, another venture into the infamous Goosebumps series. In Welcome To Camp Nightmare, we travel along with Billy as he enters summer camp. Be aware, this camp is like no other. From disappearing camp mates, to strange sounds and goings on, you will think twice before heading to a fun sun filled adventure at camp.

Right from the beginning, things just didn't seem right to Billy. First the bus load of kids are dropped off in the middle of no where with no idea what is to happen to them. Next, when they do make it to camp, it seems as though they are prisoners and the counselors don't seem to have a care in the world what happens to the kids. Billy knows one thing for sure, he must find a way to get out and get home and fast - before he ends up like his friends - gone, without a trace!

My daughter and I enjoyed this quite well. She said that she was a bit disappointed that there wasn't a true monster, as there appears to be on the cover of the book. I know that these are geared toward a bit older audience ( 9-12), but at 6, she is loving this series of books and can't wait to move on to a new one after one is finished! I enjoyed them as well and look forward to cuddling up and reading these books at the end of each day.



I read just about every one of R. L. Stein's Fear Street books as a kid but not too many of the Goosebumps. I think I might have seen this movie though!

I loved R.L. Stein when I was a kid. This sounds like a great one!
