Goosebumps Summer; Planet Of The Lawn Gnomes




I have enjoyed my goosebumps summer! This book was really fun and wins for creepiest cover!The story revolves around Jay Gardner a young boy who is addicted to trouble. After countless pranks on his neighbor Jay finds himself being stalked and attacked by Lawn Gnomes come to life! 


I can see why a generation of teens were ravenous for these stories. I devoured this in a few hours. Stein does a great job at creeping the reader out. I don't think I will ever look at lawn gnomes the same again.

The thrill level was really reved up in each chapter until the shock filled ending. A great read.
