By Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller
Delacorte Books, 2014. Fiction
Charlie knows his stepmother is a witch and it is not only because they had to move into her spooky purple mansion; he is certain something is just not right with her. Even though no one believes him, he becomes more convinced when his little brother is mysteriously kidnapped and Charlie must enter the Nightmare World to try to save him. Charlie and his friends have to conquer their own fears and ally themselves with unusual creatures that fill children’s nightmares if they want to escape and return home.
A spooky middle school read with a mixture of humor and adventure. Highly recommend listening to the book which is narrated by the author Jason Segel who is a professional actor. It is available for download on Overdrive.
