Jillian is your typically teenager with twin younger sisters, Amanda and Katie. Their dad brought home a doll, which the twins named Mary-Ellen. The doll freaks out Jillian.

After taking the twins to see a ventriloquist show, Jillian discovers a wooden dummy in the dumpster. Jillian considers this an opportunity and takes the dummy home. She wants to use Slappy at kids’ birthday parties so she can earn some extra money.

Strange things start to happen. Has Slappy come to life?

This is a great, fun addition to the Goosebumps series. Slappy is one of my favorite characters from the series, and it is great seeing him back in action. In his fourth outing, R.L. Stine has cleverly spoofed the Bride of Frankenstein. It is a great read.
