“Fast, funny, frightening—and filled with shocks and surprises. These books are my kind of fun. I want to live on Monsterstreet!” —R.L. Stine, author of the Goosebumps series

In the third Monsterstreet book, a ticket to the scariest carnival in town comes with a price that might cost your life...

When Ren and his younger brother, Kip, are sent to spend Halloween with their aunt Winnie, who runs Old Manor Nursing Home, they’re expecting a boring holiday. But then a strange autumn carnival rolls into town offering them spooky thrills and monstrous delights.

Ren and Kip aren't sure what to expect when they visit their Aunt for Halloween. She works at an Old Folk's home, but is trying to liven things up with a Halloween party. When the two boys notice the new carnival in town, they can't wait to check it out. In exchange for their help with the decorations, Aunt Winnie gives them money to have some fun at the carnival.

Before they leave, an older woman who lives in the home warns Ren to steer clear of the carnival and the Tick-Tock Man. Ren writes her words off and goes with Kip anyway. At the carnival, Ren meets a girl named Zora who works there by telling fortunes. However, things aren't what they seem. If you pay a high price (I don't want to give spoilers), you can ride an unlimited amount of rides. The price is too steep and soon, Ren is the only one who can save his brother Kip and put an end to the true evils of the carnival.

CARNEVIL is a fast-paced story about two brothers who fight all the time and forget the importance of family. It takes a life-threatening event for them to learn their lesson, but I love the sibling love that's encouraged. I also love the creepiness of the carnival and how J.H. Reynolds brings us another winner! Zora is my favorite character because of her wit and I love her twist in the plot.


Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of horror, sibling love, carnivals, Goosebumps (because that's what it sort of reminds me of), and action.
