Planet of the Lawn Gnomes by R.L. Stine

Amazon / Goodreads

Blurb Via Goodreads-

"Catch the most wanted Goosebumps characters--undead or alive...

The infamous, Most Wanted Goosebumps characters are out on the loose and they're coming after you! There is no place to hide. Nothing is safe!

Jay Gardner is a mischievous kid who can't stay out of trouble. Unfortunately, Jay gets in so much trouble, his family is forced to move. The new neighborhood offers Jay a chance at a fresh start. But there's something odd about Jay's new town. Why does everyone have lawn gnomes in front of their homes? And why is everyone afraid to go outside at night? The lawn gnomes don't come to life at night-do they? Jay is about to learn that mischief can quickly turn to horror"

Okay I have to admit right away that I was a huge R.L. Stine Fear Street fan back in the day...we're talking like oh um 19ish years ago. Now that I think of it, R.L. Stine's books could be the reason why I still read YA books. I aslo happen to be a huge fan of garden gnomes, I just love them! So, when I saw this on Netgalley, I just had to check it out. R.L. Stine still does not dissapoint. I loved the story, it was interesting yet silly and creepy at the same time. This was a quick read and its ending was very very good! (no spoilers) :)     Although the Lawn Gnomes were creepy in the book, and if the scenario happen to me in real life, I would be pretty freaked out. I still love my gnomes.

Great read. R.L. Stine is an amazing children's author. This was a perfect, forget all your troubles, read something fun book.

5 out of 5 stars
