Night of the living Dummy II

A Thirty-First Goosebumps book by R.L. Stine

Description: Amy’s ventriloquist dummy, Dennis, has lost his head…for real. So Amy begs her family for a new dummy. That’s when her dad finds Slappy in a local pawnshop. Slappy’s kind of ugly, but at least his head stays on! Amy loves practicing her new comedy routine. It’s like this dummy knows what she’s thinking. Like he can move by himself. And it’s a lot of fun…until Slappy starts a routine of his own. A nasty horrible, routine that isn’t funny at all. Slappy may have a new owner, but he’s up to the same old tricks…

This one was meh, I’m not a fan of the dummy ones I don’t think.. dummies are just universally known as creepy already, so these ones almost make it seem like it was really trying to be spooky and creepy but they’re just not really at all, yes the thought of a ventriloquists dummy coming to life and torturing people is scary as all hell, I will admit that. but I feel like the actual plot/stories of these ones are too lame for the dummies. Like seriously? Oh no, he insulted people and painted things…Thats so scary. (Did you note the sarcasm, because there was some hardcore sarcasm there) I hate when the parents in the book don’t even care to hear any explanations or note how their child is behaving when saying they didn’t do it.. like something about her crying and sobbing saying she didn’t do something would make me question it.. I always wonder what happens after these books, after the parents see that they were wrong and the kid was actually telling the truth, what do they do to possibly begin to make it up to their kid? But now I have digressed.. it wasn’t a horrible goosebumps book, but it scary and it definitely wasn’t the best. It was right there in the middle I guess.

I rate this book
