While at Horrorland, Ray Gordon stops by the gift shop The Chiller House. He buys a wooden dummy named Slappy! His brother, Brandon, hates Slappy.

Ray returns home and begins planning his New Years Party that will take place in his basement. His parents promised he could have one as long as he is good to his little brother. However, strange things start happening to his little brother. Is Ray responsible or is Slappy alive?

Yes, the little mischievous Slappy is back. It seems that he cannot be destroyed. Slappy is one of my favorite characters from the Goosebumps series, and I am glad to see him back. The problem with the book is that it has the same basic plotlines from the previous Slappy books. Slappy use to be scary, but now he is a silly character that plays pranks on the kids. It is not the best book in the series, but it is still enjoyable to read.
