I was in second grade and found this book in a bag of books in the basement. I was scared to read it because I didn't know that Goosebumps books are aimed towards kids. My second grade teacher brought up how good Goosebumps books are and he said that he could read them to the class if we brought them to him. I said that I had this book and he read it to the class. Since then, R. L. Stine is still my favorite author because he got me started with chapter books. This is a good book and the television episode that was released on VHS and I think DVD is good also. I like this book a lot because it has my favorite Goosebumps twist at the end even though all of the Night of the Living Dummy books are my favorite.

FROM THE PUBLISHER
Some pretty creepy things are happening around Fever Swamp-- strange howling sounds, dead animals, disappearing hunters. Everyone thinks Grady's new dog is responsible, but Grady knows differently.
One of R. L. Stine's earlier entries in the series, this book always captivated me so.
A young boy named Grady swears there's strange things going on, but people keep telling him his dog is just being bad. But Grady starts to realize that it's not his dog--something else is causing trouble in Fever Swamp. Something that just might be very big, very furry, and VERY dangerous...
Being a Goosebumps book, it is short and sweet. But if you're in the mood for light fast reading, hey, pick this up.
Yet another enthralling horror story for young readers. Everyone thinks Grady's dog is howling at night, but is it something else that's baying at the moon in Fever Swamp? "Readers beware- you're in for a scare"!
