Summary

"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!
