I have been reading spooksville from the beginning and am very happy with the series, although this one was a little disapointing. dont get me wrong, it was a good storyline, but the death of the orriginal watch was very sad and dissapointing to read since him and sally are my favorite characters. you may think im to old to read these books but i read steven king and anne rice too, i just like to read and share the books with my younger brother and sister.

Welcome to the strange town of Spooksville, where not everything is what it seems. Watch, weird nickname for a kid, is suddenly ill. Someone has put a wicked spell on him. His friends Adam, Bryce, Sally, Cindy are going to find the underlying cause of it. They kids have been through many terrifying adventures, and this one is no different.

They follow a strange man that had bumped into Watch shortly before he became ill. They watch him go into the cemetery and jump through the tombstone of Madeline Templeton. She was a famous witch and her tombstone was the portal to other dimensions and times.

The kids follow the man through the portal and in up in a mirror Spooksville with copies of themselves living there. Will they save Watch and return home?

I have read many Christopher Pike books over the years, but this is my first in the Spooksville series. Despite being book 20, I found it easy to follow the plot. I would have to say that the Goosebumps books by R.L. Stine inspired the Spooksville series. Overall, I found The Dangerous Quest fun to read.

I thought this was one of the saddest Spooksville book. Someone has put a curse over Watch. Then when Adam, Bryce, Cindy, and Sally go to the coffee and doughnut shop, Watch starts to have an attack. It was so cool when Adam and Cindy went to the other dimension and saw themseles. It was like looking into a mirror. That's spooky. They meet Princess Rula a character from a book. I thought it was confusing when he talked about Cindy Two and Adam Two and Watch Two.Prince Tomel killed Adam so he could save Princess Rula.Then Watch dies but something happens at the end...

This book cost me to shed a few tears over Watch's death, but I did a three cheer when I read that the other Watch had joined the gang again. (P.S: read #16) GGGGGGGGGGGRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTTT book! I recommand it for Watch's fans...

This book's clearly a sad one, but quite funny during the beginning when Sally had an argument with Sally Two. If you haven't, I recommend you read the Spooksville #16 (Time Terror) before reading this book.
