Scary Stories Give me Goosebumps! (What We're Reading - Part 3 of 5)

  Sweet Pea enjoys a scary story. (Not too scary, but a well-placed ghost or witch, monster or evil step-mother is a plus). She's always enjoyed the Goosebumps books and TV series and has read quite a few of them. The Secrets of Dripping Fang series by Martin Greenburg was also a big hit. The books are silly, fun and gross with just the right mix of 'ick' and 'ew' and 'what if' to keep her entertained. She is currently hooked on Cynthia DeFelice's The Ghost of Cutler Creek.

Sweet Pea is a good reader, but doesn't seem to enjoy it as much as the boys. She reads each night before bed, but sometimes I think it's more for the purpose of staying up late rather than because she really wants to read. But hey, to each their own.
