A title like that just shouldn't exist, even if it does have an amazing stereotyped Viking woman on the cover. Which this book does. Moving on.

A father has taken his children deep into the Brovarian forest in hopes of finding the Lost Legend. Nobody knows who wrote the Lost Legend, nor what its contents are. All they know is that apparently it exists and it is worth a great deal of money since people are so curious about it. Naturally, the two kids end up following Silverdog, the potentially worst named creature since Shaggydog, to his owners house and meet Luka the wildman and Viking Woman. Then they learn if they survive the test they can get the Lost Legend. Enter the weird fantastical world where almost everything is a wind-up toy or styrofoam and nothing is as it seems.

Stine|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1387734622s/460496.jpg|2811873] wasn't a terrible book, but it also wasn't great. The imaginative world of giant cats and wind-up mice was pretty cool, though I think it would likely have made a better comic book or TV show than chapter book. It entertained in much the way old 80s movies did. Plenty of opportunity for expansion and fun, but ultimately little substance. Given, that is perfectly all right for a kid's book. ( )

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. ( )

Justin and Marissa are with their dad in search of "The Legend of the Lost Legend," which they believe will win their father fame and fortune. In the middle of the night, they are led by a dog to a woman who says they can have the legend if they survive a test. The test is full of danger- until they realize that everything is fake. When they figure it out, they are told how the (and their dad with whom they have been reunited) can get the legend of the lost legend- which they get and discover it just involves them being eternally lost.
