I read "Monster Blood", "Say Cheese and Die", and "The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb". Let me tell you about them.
Monster Blood - About two kids who buy a can of monster blood and a spell is cast on it against their knowledge. The monster blood, similar to our Gak, is cursed to grow and grow and consume everything!! Scary, right?
Say Cheese and Die - About a group of kids who find a camera in a hidden compartment in an abandoned house. The camera is cursed, and it causes bad things to happen to the subject of the photo.
The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb - Two kids get the opportunity to get lost in a pyramid in Egypt... and that's just what they do. There are some mummy's and an attempted kidnapping, but the really scary part of this book is the abandonment.
So, those are the three that I read. I have noticed a couple things about these books:
1. There are usually two main characters, a boy and a girl.
2. The main characters are usually 12.
3. No one dies.
4. The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb featured two main characters of Egyptian descent.
I'm fairly certain R. L. Stine's target audience is anyone... anyone at all around the age of 12. A clever ploy.
I'm having fun reading through these again, but it's super easy and is going super fast. Just another thing to like about it, I guess.
