" Coraline meets Monsters, Inc. in this delightfully entertaining offering from actor [Jason] Segel and co-author [Kirsten] Miller."-- Publishers Weekly The hilariously frightening, middle-grade novel Nightmares! is a Texas Bluebonnet nominee and 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 sleeping wasn't a nightmarish prospect. 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. Praise for Nightmares! Book one is a New York Times bestseller and Texas Bluebonnet nominee ! "Charlie Laird, who learns fear will eat you alive if you feed it, makes an impression, and... readers will want to accompany him again."-- The New York Times Book Review " A touching comical saga ...about facing things that go bump in the night."-- US Weekly ""[ Nightmares! ] succeeds at scaring and amusing in equal measure...[It's] sweet, charming, and imaginative. "-- Kirkus Reviews "Segel...and Miller build an entertaining, cartoony world full of scary (but not too scary) monsters, silly jokes, plucky kid heroes...with a promise of adventures to come."-- Booklist " An engaging and creative story ...woven with a generous amount [of] humor."-- VOYA "There's humor and a fairly high ick-factor. "-- School Library Journal " Cleverly crafted ...This novel presents just the right mix of 'scary and humorous.'"-- ILA Literacy Daily
