The Daily Find: Nightmares! by Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller

http://www.amazon.com/Nightmares-Jason-Segel/dp/0385744250/ref=as_sl_pc_ss_til?tag=las00-20&linkCode=w01&linkId=4UY6CUFKXMK22OXX&creativeASIN=0385744250I just saw Jason Segel on the Today show this morning to promote his debut book Nightmares!. I stopped what I was doing and paid attention, because it looks like just the type of book my 10 yr. old daughter loves to read. During the interview, Segel said he and co-author Kirsten Miller wrote it for the type of child who loves to be scared - who wants to get so scared reading a book that they have to put it down for a moment and gather their courage before continuing on. That part made me laugh as it reminded me of myself at that age, reading countless R.L. Stine novels. Nightmares!, the first in a series of three, is a middle-grade fiction novel about a boy named Charlie who has moved into a scary mansion belonging to his father's new wife, who he suspects is a witch. Charlie has recurring nightmares that start to happen in real life, and he and his group of friends have to face their fears in order to save the day. It's aimed at ages 8-12, grades 3-7.

Booklist called it "...an entertaining, cartoony world full of scary (but not too scary) monsters, silly jokes, plucky kid heroes, and a cinematic plot that trundles onward to a satisfying conclusion, with a promise of adventures to come."

Kirkus Reviews says, "[Nightmares!] succeeds at scaring and amusing in equal measure...[It's] sweet, charming, and imaginative."

I'd say it's just in time for Halloween! It's currently half off on paperback, marked down from $16.99 to $8.49, though it's also available for kindle and on audio. Click here to shop! *Illustrations by Karl Kwansy.
