Goosebumps. This is the series that kept me reading through my childhood. More than any other series, Goosebumps kept me interested in reading, and R.L. Stein is a wonderful children's writer. I applaud his efforts, and can't express enough my gratitude for the series. ( )

This book has some issues: Gretchen and Clark are left with their grandparents who lock them in with a monster. Basically they're bored so they go in the locked room they're told not to enter because of the danger, and discover a monster inside. They run madly around the house trying to kill it and discover that their grandparents deserted them to "get help". Luckily the monster is allergic to humans and dies, but that does nothing to stop its evil siblings in the swamp outside. ( )

Book description
Gretchen and her stepbrother, Clark, hate staying at their grandparents' house. Grandpa Eddie is totally deaf. And Grandma Rose is obsessed with baking. Plus, they live right in the middle of a dark,muddy swamp.
Things couldn't get ay worse, could they? WRONG!
Because there's something really weird about Grandma and Grandpa's house. Something odd about the room upstairs. The one that's locked. The one with the strange noises coming from it. Strange growling noises ...
