When The Ghost Dog Howls (Goosebumps HorrorLand, #13)When The Ghost Dog Howls by R.L. Stine
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Late last week, I set myself a small reading challenge: read the 10 Goosebumps HorrorLand books we found in one of our local thrift stores earlier this year.

Well, this is the last one. And I have to say it's one of my least favourite. Not because this is the start of the new HorrorLand arc, but because I just didn't like these kids. Especially Andy's cousin, Marnie. She was annoying as hell. Pretty much from the moment she appears trying to steal his popcorn. Ugh.

Anyway, the kids meet Jonathan Chiller, the shopkeeper who 'sells' a yellowed hound's tooth to Andy. It's supposed to belong to the Blue Kerlew Hound and can grant wishes.

As you can probably guess, many wishes are made and a lot of things go wrong for Andy. But nothing is shittier than what Marnie puts him through. I seriously couldn't stand that cousin of his. And because of her, I couldn't enjoy this story. 😐
