This week the patrons voted on a Goosebumps book. Are you ready to be terrified by a living dummy? Because if so... just get through the first 80% of this book and we'll get around to that eventually. Stine was not kidding when he said it was a night of the living dummy and it was our fault for not taking him very literally. Are you ready to see the Goosebumps mascot at play in his debut book? Because... I mean it happens... like right at the end. Look I didn't realize that the book we probably wanted to read was the second part. So instead you're getting Mr. Wood and you just have to live with it.  Mr. Wood is the Wish <dot> com version of Slappy much in the same way this book is the Wish <dot> com version of Night of the Living Dummy 2. This is the book you had at home when you asked your mom if you could get it. We're just going to have to all live with this together.Support the showDiscord - - - - the Books -
