This book was okay, I guess, but there are better Goosebumps books in my opinion. Then again, I’m probably biased because I didn’t read this one as a child.
Either way, it’s about a sinister ghost that comes out to play hide and seek once a year with the local kids on his birthday, even though he’s dead. The losing kid gets turned into a ghost for the coming year, until someone else gets selected. And he loves to pick on kids who are new to the area, like the story’s protagonist.
Overall, it was okay – a typical Goosebumps read. Nothing special, but it still works.
