Book Description

Now with twelve short stories.

Monsters, magic, goblins, zombies, and more. Be prepared to sleep with the lights on. This collection of short stories will have you looking over your shoulder, avoiding mirrors, and jumping at the slightest sound.

From fiendish creatures hiding in your bathroom mirror, to Halloween pranks gone deadly wrong. Each story will scare, delight, and surprise.

No gore or cursing here, just good ol' spine-chilling fun!

Infinite Reflections – When Jessie's sister gets trapped in a haunted mirror, he must figure out how to destroy the creature within. Though, Mom might like it if he gets his sister out first.

Bloody Marcy – Mixing a game of Bloody Mary with a practical joke proves to be a deadly combination.

Monster in the Mirror - Nate, his little sister, and best buddy Dan, stumble upon a hidden room during a sleep-over. What they find inside is anything but friendly.

Death Trap – Mike takes a bet to go inside a haunted house, but will he live long enough to collect?

Steven, Space Stowaway – Steven sneaks onboard a spaceship bound for Mars. Just one problem: the Captain has a particularly unpleasant way of dealing with stowaways.

The Price of Friendship – How much is a best friend worth? Joey finds out the hard way.

Hobgoblin Horror – Jake only volunteered at the retirement home because Shelby works there. So, it's no wonder he's doesn't hear Mr. Fitches' warnings about a local homicidal hobgoblin—too bad for him.

Rolling Leprechauns for Change – Leprechauns can have a nasty sense of humor—especially, when they're getting even.

Hide-n-Go-Coffin – Playing hide-and-seek in a cemetery is disrespectful. When it happens to be cursed, the results can be deadly, or maybe even worse.

Grandpa's Suits – A game of spin-the-bottle with the school pervert isn't a bright idea. Fortunately for Zoey, she's not quite alone.

Brother's Keeper – Zack would be wise to spend less time looking for his missing sled and more time worrying about what's lurking outside. And he's not the only one who'll suffer for his single-mindedness.

Super Zombie Juice Mega Bomb - When Life gives you lemons, kill zombies. In this special short story that inspired the upcoming novel, Nate and Misty's town is overrun by the undead and they'll need a little luck to squeeze their way out of this sticky mess.

These stories are not recommended for kids under 8.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spooky little stories for kids October 20, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
Monster Mashup is a collection of very short stories for kids that enjoy scary, supernatural tales. It is slightly like the Goosebumps series by R.L. Stine, only the stories are shorter and less developed. There are nine mini stories, 3 of which have been previously published by this author, and 1 which seems to be a teaser for an upcoming book by this author; they are all well-written stories that are enjoyable and fun to read. Probably best for kids aged 8-12, as there is a definite horror aspect to the tales. All in all, the stories are nicely written short horror stories that will provide much entertainment for kids who enjoy spooky stories; the only possible downside would be that the stories are really short and not deeply developed, but since there are nine stories, it doesn't detract enough to be very noticeable.

DISCLAIMER - I was given a free copy of this book for review purposes, but that did not sway my opinion of the book nor did it cause me to give the book a higher rating that I normally would have given.

Actually I give this book three and a half stars, but the rating systems won't allow me to do that, so I am putting it in myself!!

This is a great collection of short stories for your middle school child. I think 3rd grade and above, any younger than that, and I think it may be a bit too much for them.

Some of the stories are true horror stories for younger children. They reminded me of my absolute favorites as a child. Some of them aren't scary at all, but make children think about the consequences of their actions.

Hobgoblin Horror had to be my favorite out of the bunch. It was great from beginning to end, and left you with a great tingly feeling when the story was over. The perfect little horror story for any child. Nothing graphic, nothing gory, but completely scary.

I would recommend this to any child who has an adventurous spirit and likes to get the chills from time to time. One of the better spooky story books for younger children that I have read in a while!

5.0 out of 5 stars Horror Stories but without Blood! June 8, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Monster Mashup - Spooky Short Story Omnibus - with Bonus Zombie Short

MONSTER MASHUP is a collection of very short stories not really for kids as I also enjoyed reading it!

There are nine mini stories, and one story. a Zombie short, which seems to be a teaser for an upcoming book by this author.

All the stories are well-written and enjoyable. And there is a definite horror aspect to the tales. All in all, the stories are nicely written short horror stories that will provide much entertainment for teens/young adults or adults, who enjoy spooky stories.

The only downside I would say is that the stories are really short and ended very fast. I wanted to know more at the end of each story.

The author did a very good job of spooky tales and I recommend it to all horror story lovers!

She is becoming more aware of laughing when reading a good book. Also the series approaches their fears
in such a good way.
