Title: Attack of the Jack-O’-Lanterns
Author: R. L. Stine
Page Count/Review Word Count: 124
And so, my series of Goosebumps reviews continues, and yet again we have pretty much your stereotypical Stine story. And, in stereotypical Stine fashion, the book’s protagonists are fundamentally unlikeable, motivated only by a childish desire for revenge against their ‘enemies‘, two equally unlikeable kids who pranked them at Halloween.
Still, it’s a page-turner, and it’s reasonably enjoyable as an adult – you could happily read it to kids, but maybe not before bedtime. It’s also quite a good book to give to them if you don’t want them to go trick or treating on Hallowe’en. I always hated doing that.
