Roald Dahl meets R. L. Stine in this spine-tingling and hilarious tale from a bestselling author!

Billy Shivers doesn't have a lot of excitement in his life. He prefers to spend his days reading alone in the Hitchcock Public Library. So it is a bit out of character when he finds himself drawn to the Haunted House of Books, and a competition daring readers to survive an entire night spent inside.

The Haunted House of Books is a cross between a bookstore and a booby trap. It's a creaky old mansion full of dark hallways and things that go bump in the night, and the store's ill-tempered owner, Mr. Rapscallion, only adds to the mystery.

But the frights of the store itself are nothing compared to the stories it holds. These stories are so ghastly, so terrifying, so shocking that once you've read them, you'll never be the same.

Does Billy dare begin?

Do you?
