Double Review: Revenge of the Living Dummy & Creep from the Deep by R.L. Stine

Revenge of the Living Dummy (Goosebumps HorrorLand #1)
by R.L. Stine

In Revenge of the Living Dummy, Britney finds herself in a very bad situation. Her pain of a cousin comes to stay with her family, and he brings along his hideous dummy Mr. Badboy. Britney is infuriated by the things Ethan, her cousin, does with his doll but soon she begins to wonder if it's not Ehtan but the doll that is evil.

Slappy is one of my favorite monsters created by R.L. Stine. I am not ashamed to admit I am terrified by any kind of dolls, so Slappy is one of personal horrors. But in this book he didn't live up to my expectations. Still it was a fun read.

After the story with Slappy comes to an end the Horrorland storyline begins. Britney receives an invitation to visit Horrorland with her best friend Molly. I really love that there is going to be a whole different story in Horrorland that will span throughout the books. I am diving straight to the next one.

Creep from the Deep (Goosebumps HorrorLand #2)
by R.L. Stine

Billy and Sheena decide to spend the summer with their uncle Dr. D. He has a lot planned for them.
The most exciting activity is finding a pirate ship that has been lost ever since it sinked. Billy and Sheena are very excited, but who would have guessed that their little adventure would take a bad turn. First thing gone bad, their uncle disappears. Then they are stranded on a weird island where skeletons are alive. And they are after them.

This was really fun to read. I love pirates and hidden treasures and everything creepy that R.L. Stine creates. This book had everything. The first story was a fast little tale of the two sibligns searching for their uncle and ending up findind a whole lot of trouble.

After Creep in the Deep is over we are back at Horrorland. Exactly where we left of. I didn't know how the Horrorland scene would play out, but Stine wrote the little stories at the end of each book as one big Horrorland story. Billy and Sheena go to Horrorland and there they find Britney and Molly, from the first book, exactly were we left them. I loved that we continued on with this story. A lot of things happened and we even met the main character of the next book. This story is the reason I am so excited. I can't wait to read more.
