This book also marks the appearance of a new character - Spider the ogre. He's not your average ogre, in the sense that he's actually lovely, and helps children escape from the horrible Nightwatchman. He's like a big cuddly teddy really, and what's even cooler is that Tommy based him on a real-life friend and fellow Scream Street fan. I hope he appears in future books, as he brought even *more* humour to the story! (I know, I didn't think that was possible either...)
"Having read all the other Scream Street books, I asked for this as a birthday gift. As soon as I got it I started reading it and was immediately laughing at the humour. Soon I was really keen to find out the ending. The story was gripping, made me a little emotional and I was soon at the end. It developed the plot really fast and the usual characters had fun together. The Nightwatchmen feeds off children's fear... and with that gains power. I read this at bedtime but perhaps this was not the best idea for a peaceful night's rest! Great book... love the series."
