Viewer Beware! The Goosebumps TV Companion (ebook)
Ever played with monster blood? Slipped into a werewolf skin suit recently? Or discovered a ghost living next door? How about ventriloquist dummies? Have any warm and cozy feelings about those creepy little things? Didn’t think so.
In 1995, R.L. Stine’s best-selling children’s horror stories were brought to the small screen with the live-action Goosebumps television series. The Canadian and American co-production ran for four seasons and in that time spawned quite a few nightmares.

There’s only one way to find out, but I must warn you that nary a plot hole or awkward moment will be forgiven! One thing’s for certain, you’re in for a scare...
