A first installment in a planned trilogy co-written by the actor from How I Met Your Mother and The Muppets follows the misadventures of young Charlie Laird, who struggles with nightmares and a conviction that his stepmother is a witch. Simultaneous.


A New York Times Bestseller written and narrated by Jason Segel!

Jason Segel, multitalented actor, writer, and musician, teams up with New York Times bestselling author Kirsten Miller for the hilariously frightening, middle-grade novelNightmares!, the first audiobook 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!

“In Segel’s reading, we get many versions of him – bellowing villain, hissing snakes, exhausted dad and wisecracking stepmom… [He] exudes an exuberant joy in the telling and an absence of cynicism that suits a writer of middle-grade fiction.”—New York Times

"It will be evident to listeners that Jason Segel is having fun narrating his first book. This fun middle-grade story would make good listening on a car trip. Segel's performance is lively enough for those of all ages to enjoy."—AudioFile

Coraline meets Monsters, Inc. in this delightfully entertaining offering from actor [Jason] Segel and co-author [Kirsten] Miller.”—Publishers Weekly

"[Nightmares!] succeeds at scaring and amusing in equal measure...[It's] sweet, charming, and imaginative."—Kirkus

"Segel...and Miller build an entertaining, cartoony world full of scary (but not too scary) monsters, silly jokes, plucky kid heroes, and a cinematic plot that trundles onward to a satisfying conclusion, with a promise of adventures to come."—Booklist

“An engaging and creative story…woven with a generous amount [of] humor.”—VOYA
