Description: Jason Segel, multitalented actor, writer, and musician, teams up with New York Times bestselling author Kirsten Miller for the hilariously frightening middle-grade novel Nightmares!, the first book in a trilogy about a boy named Charlie and a group of kids who must face their fears to save their town.
Sleeping has never been so scary. And now waking up is even worse!
Charlie Laird has several problems.
1. His dad married a woman he is sure moonlights as a witch.
2. He had to move into her purple mansion, which is NOT a place you want to find yourself after dark.
3. He can’t remember the last time sleep didn’t involve taking a ride on the Nightmare train. Like even a nap.
What Charlie doesn’t know is that his problems are about to get a whole lot more real. Nightmares can ruin a good night’s sleep, but when they start slipping out of your dreams and into the waking world—that’s a line that should never be crossed.
And when your worst nightmares start to come true . . . well, that’s something only Charlie can face. And he’s going to need all the help he can get, or it might just be lights-out for Charlie Laird. For good.
Thoughts: I unfortunately don’t have thoughts on the full book. I attended Book Expo America back at the end of May and I attended a children’s breakfast where they handed out a little sneak peek.
After reading the sneak peek and having heard Jason speak at the breakfast about it I did pre-order the book. It sounds like a fun read even if it is considered a middle grade read and I am used to Young Adult and up.
The sneak peek was just that. You basically learn how Charlie and his family came to move into a big purple mansion. Even though much didn’t happen I still think it will be one that I want to read.
Nightmares! is out today so go check it out.
