Night Terror Stories of Shadow and Substance 27 Oct. 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Genre:Fiction

Three sentence summary:There is this kid named Bo and his friend got murdered by a killer doll.So now the killer doll is coming to get him.So then he realizes it was all a dream. The doll is kind of like Chucky.

What I liked most about the book:I liked the part when that girl got her head sliced by the doll.

What I didn't like and why: I didn't like Bo because he is not that cool like me.

My favorite character and why: My favorite character is the killer doll. Why because he kills people and that is cool to me.

The scene,line,or passage that meant something to me and why:

"Hay watch out", said Bo as he took out his shotgun. The killer doll was right behind his friend as he fired a bullet into his head.

What would I say about this book to someone else:It is a great book and you would probaly wet your pants reading it because it is to scary for the reader. So read it and don't wet your pants.

One question I have after reading this book:Why did the killer doll have to die and couldn't the author make Bo a gangster?

My strongest reason for recommending this book:It has action and brings a chill down your spin.So watch out because the killer doll is real! (Don't wet your pants)

A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
BY SAM WOTIPKA doctorporkchop@dellmail.com
Night Terrors, sounds scary doesn't it? Wrong. By the title it sounds like it's the type of book you don't want to read if you get scared easily, but this book isn't scary enough to scare a six year old. It's a collection of short stories that are supposed to frighten you. In addition to being boring many of the stories don't make since. For example "The Monkey's Wedding", about an old lady's son painted a famous picture called "The Monkey's Wedding." The stories most interesting event was when the old lady got a phone call saying here son had been killed, then the picture was mailed to her and the story ended. I can see how this book might be interesting to some people, but wasn't to me. When started reading this book I thought it would be scary, it didn't come close. On the good side this book was well written and had a lot of detail. Some of the stories did interest me but more often than not the stories were a disappointment. I think the author should have put different stories in the book or just changed the title to something that wasn't scary sounding. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone except for parents to read to kids five and under. This book is a disappointment.
