I received my first Goosebumps book for my seventh birthday in 1997, and I was hooked from then on, I recently found my huge collection of Goosebumps in my loft and remembered how they got me into reading.
One of the books I hadn't read as a child, was Night of the living dummy, and so I bought it for my kindle!
Even being 21 I enjoyed this book, and the idea of Ventriloquist dummies coming to life is creepy to anyone! The book has the usually brilliant twists and turns that goosebumps books are famous for, and the way that Mr. Wood is finished off is brilliant!
Reading this as an adult, the only annoying things were the over use of the word "totally!" (but this is a book aimed at american kids, so we can let that slide) and the fact that Lindy got away taking the joke to far.
This isn't the scariest Goosebumps book (the scariest book is welcome to the dead house) but it has the most famous goosebumps character... Slappy the dummy!
Also, incase you didn't know, they made a goosebumps TV series, which you can watch on youtube and watch Slappy the dummy running riot for real!
