Spooky and suspenseful, frightening and funny, the Deadtime Stories series is sure to bring giggles and goosebumps to reluctant middle grade readers. Each book in the series is planned around a fresh plot, delightful characters and cliff-hangers at pivotal points leading to a fulfilling conclusion.
In the first of the series, “Grave Secrets,” a babysitter reads a book to the children and suddenly the characters come to life. Others in the series include “The Witching Game,” “The Beast of Baskerville,” “Invasion of the Appleheads,” “Little Magic Shop of Horrors” and “Grandpa’s Monster Movies” to be published this winter.
