The tension surrounding the main antagonist was pretty chilling (especially with what he wants from the friends and how he gets it), but outside of that? It wasn't much my thing.

I guess I got spoiled from "Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend," a book that's targeted for a reader more my age, but it's a good scary story for 3-5 grade readers. Every scene served a purpose to push the plot forward, and the defeat of the antagonist was pretty satisfying. The illustrations add to the scary stuff, but I'm a little nit-picky with how many of the children (real or no) looked the same when drawn at profile--especially those noses.

A very strange read with some very peculiar characters. Just in time for Halloween!
