Jaclyn and her aunt Greta just moved to a small village on the edge of the Arctic Circle from Chicago. Jaclyn is bored. There is nothing for her to do. There are no malls, movie theaters.

Then she notices something odd about the town. In front of every house is a creepy snowman with a bright red scarf. The snowman has a deep scar on its face and a wicked smile.

There is a rumor that two sorcerers created evil snowman years ago, and it still lives.

Beware, the Snowman is the 51st book in the original Goosebumps series, and has the typical plotline - a kid arrives into a spooky new town. To me, a snowman is not very scary, and neither is this book. Overall, it still is a fun read for kids.
