My son has been loving the Goosebumps series by R.L. Stine.  I'm looking for any kind of deals on those series.  I think he has read the Cuckoo Clock of Doom, The Abominable Snowman from Pasadena,  The Horror at camp Nightmare, and Camp Jellyjam(?).  I am looking for any of the others, anykind of deal you can offer!  PM me with the details. Thanks,  Brooke

Thanks for all those who replied!  My son will be enjoying his books for a while now, so I think we are all set for goosebumps for the time being.  Thanks again,  Brooke

My grandson also loves Goosebumps books.  My daughters (his mom) loved the fear street series by the same author.  I just read a review of a R. L. Stine book called "The Snowman" on this site.  I was very surprised by the review and the content in that book.  My daughters were 9years to 12 years when they were reading the Fear Street Series. My grandson is only 8.  I haven't read any of them.  I didn't have any idea there were such adult subjects in his books.  Has anyone ran across any others?  I have always just blindly said OK to anything by R.L. Stine for young adults without reading them.  I'm not a horror book lover but my husband loves Dean Koontz and Stephen King.  I would appreciate reviews of any of t he Goosebumps books that you have come across that you wouldn't recommend for children under 11 or 12.   Were the older books intended for older children?  Just wondering where I've been that I've watched two generations read his books without any idea of the true content  that may be included.
