My Friends Call Me Monster (Goosebumps HorrorLand, #7)My Friends Call Me Monster by R.L. Stine
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

You know, when I started reading this book, I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy it. I mean, it starts with three friends breaking into their teacher's house to dump a black cat, hoping to freak her out because she's superstitious.

BUT, the more I read, the better it got.

Michael and his two friends don't like their freaky teacher, Mrs Hardesty, because she likes monsters and keeps their classroom dark. Yet, they didn't expect to find a giant egg in her attic...

Yep, that's pretty much the gist of it. If you add a creepy mystery, eggs that should never be eaten, a seemingly friendly principal, and a bit of alien SF to the mix. Put all of these ingredients together, and it makes for a fun and gross story featuring a very interesting narrator.

I really liked Michael—the twelve-year-old with the nickname Monster because he's big and tall, plus has a bad temper. I didn't think I'd like him much, but he's great. And especially shines in the HorrorLand shortie featuring all the familiar faces and a new place called Panic Park. 😳
