Thrills and Chills (Garbage Pail Kids Book 2)
The Garbage Pail Kids are desperate to win the Smellville Pet Contest. But how can they compete against Good Boy, the perfect Chihuahua of the Perfect twins? Good Boy can stand on his head and do algebra problems blindfolded. But the whole thing goes out of control when our heroes meet five new kids who also call themselves the Garbage Pail Kids! Meet Windy Winston, Nat Nerd, Brett Sweat, Nasty Nancy, and Disgustin’ Justin. They all share the grand prize—a free all-day trip to Six Thrills Amusement Park. Will anyone have a good time? And will anyone survive?
I enjoyed taking a trip back to my childhood. Not only are the Garbage Pail Kids just as gross as I remember them to be, but Stine is a master of children's horror, keeping us on the edge of our seat, leaving us hanging and begging for more. My ten year old enjoyed this one more than the Goosebumps books, I think because of the illustrations, but also the humor that accompanies the gross-factor the kids.
Final Thoughts: Thrills and Chills is a perfect throw back to your childhood and a way to introduce young readers to the master author RL Stine.
