And then I heard the old stone creak. And saw the pale hand slowly reach out from the grave.

No time to move. No time to scream.

I stood frozen -- and watched the hand wrap its cold, bony fingers around my ankle.

And then I started to scream.

Britney Crosby’s cousin is a jerk. He won’t stop torturing Britney with a ventriloquist’s dummy. Soon, Britney learns a few secrets about the dummy. Not only can the dummy talk on his own, he’s also evil! Britney must find a way to deal with this evil dummy.

The Goosebumps: Horrorland series is an all-new, all-terrifying series from R.L. Stine. R.L. Stine has written many books, so far has sold more than 300 million books worldwide. Other than Goosebumps R.L. Stine has written the series Fearstreet, Rotten School, The Nightmare Room and many more. I recommend this book for age 9-13. You can learn more about R.L. Stine at

I found this book easy to read, and it was hard to put the book down. It didn’t take long to get into the book, as there was lots of suspense so I had to finish it right away. The characters were easy to believe. The ending satisfied me.

I give Revenge of the Living Dummy 4 stars.
