A New Twist on Scary Stories!

Are you looking for a new way to experience chapter books, especially those that make you shiver and shake?  If the answer is yes, you should check out a few of Patrick Carman's books.

Things That Go Bump In The Night is a set of short stories that invites the reader to go online to listen to a frightful audio introduction, read several spooky pages in the book, and then watch a creepy video conclusion online in 15 minutes or less.  I love how it keeps book and movie lovers coming back for more.


Patrick Carman's Skeleton Creek series is another that will thrill and excite a reader with an internet hook.  Strange things are happening in Skeleton Creek and it is up to Ryan and Sarah to investigate.  An eerie accident has left Ryan housebound where he records everything in his journal. Sarah sends video clips through email for Ryan to see (and for you to see on a special website with links and passwords given throughout the book).  Together they uncover clues to solve mysteries. Hopefully this will have you enjoying reading in a whole new way!  Let us know what you think!
