#BookReview. Goosebumps, Phantom of the Auditorium. R L Stine

Another trip down memory lane for today’s review. Not one I have read previously but an author from my childhood.

Phantom of the Auditorium. Paperback 126 pages Publisher Scholastic USA Published 1996 Genre Ghost/horror/adventure/fantasy stories for kids Purchase Link https://www.amazon.co.uk/Phantom-Auditorium-Goosebumps-Classics-Reissues/dp/0545298369

Blurb Brooke’s best friend, Zeke, has been given the lead role in the school play, The Phantom. Zeke’s totally into it. He loves dressing up in the grotesque phantom costume. And scaring the other members of the cast. Brooke thinks Zeke’s getting a little too into it.
But then really scary things start happening. A message appears on a piece of scenery: The Phantom Strikes! A stage light comes crashing down.
Is someone trying to ruin the play?
Or is there really a phantom living under the stage?

My Review ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ An R L Stine book. Oh the nostalgia, a cult classic book series for a generation of kids, me included. Hadn’t read this one before. I actually purchased it for my 10 year old son. Of course I was totally not scared. More of a mystery or did it than a horror/scary story with a paranormal element which I am fascinated by so this kept my interest. A great story of friendship and trust. A perfect author to introduce young minds to horror elements and that will let their imagination run wild.
