Once again bestselling author Betsy Haynes (The Fabulous Five series) has unleashed her prolific pen, this time to delightfully horrifying good use. Bone Chillers is an entertaining collection of grotesqueries that are especially twisted for the minds of young readers. Grounded in the familiar terrain of school, shopping malls, or family affairs, each fantasia exposes a macabre world of demons and monsters lurking just below the mundane surface of everyday life.
In Welcome to Alien Inn, a weekend ski trip for the Meyer family takes a turn for the bizarre. When they get lost in a blizzard, the Meyers check into a hotel to wait out the storm, only to find themselves trapped in a nightmare of extraterrestrial terror.
Overflowing with buckets of gore and more than a little vomitus, Bone Chillers aren't for the squeamish. But there's a moral hidden in this madness and, in the end, the good guys usually come out on top--even if they are covered in some kind of slime. --George Laney
