Format: Paperback
Unlike the first several books in the series and many of the books that were to come in the Goosebumps 2000 series, this book really wasn't very spooky or scary. Jordan and his sister Nicole get to go to Alaska with their Dad because he has been paid to photograph an Abominable Snowman. Jordan and his sister are besides themselves because they have never seen snow and now they are going to be able to see it for the first time. However, while staying in a cabin in the frozen northern wilderness, the family's guide takes off with all the family's food and supplies while the Dad is taking some pictures of a frozen stream. The kids chase the guide, but end up getting lost and fall into the lair of the Abominable Snowman.
The story flows together really smoothly and there aren't any plotholes. There are a few things that don't make too much sense, however. And the story is not scary at all, leaving me without any goosebumps. Still it's a good story and makes for a decent read. Not R.L. Stine's greatest, but not too shabby, either.

My son has thoroughly enjoyed many books by R.L. Stein. Given the attention this title received in the recent film, it was only natural for him to want to check it out. He has not been able to put it down since it arrive (early and in great condition). The subject matter is thrilling but I wouldn't call it "scary" or "horror". He is 11 years old and loves the adventure of the Goosebumps series.

Jordan Blake and his sister, Nicole, has lived in the hot weather of Pasadena. They want to have a real winter with real snow to play in. Then their dream comes true. Their father has been offered a job to fly to Alaska and photograph a mysterious snow creature, known as the Abominable Snowman.

Neither Jordan, his sister or his father believe that the creature is real, but it is a free trip. Almost as soon as they get to Alaska, something starts chasing them.

Despite the title, the book is mostly set in Alaska. The title and the book cover actually giveaway the twisted ending. Overall, this is an average Goosebumps book.

Cool book (pun intended) - fun and suspenseful. Goosebumps have been around forever, my son loves this series. I like this one particularly because it's not that scary. It's still a fun read and the story line is very good.

Goosebumps is an okay book but meant for kids who are learning to read. Then story is simple until there is some plot twist at the end that doesn't make any sense. To tell the truth that does not give me Goosebumps.

By A Customer on March 18, 2000
Format: Paperback
I have been reading these reviews a lot and I noticed one in particular that sparked my attention. Most of it was all about how terrible this book was and how it was great when you first read it and now that you're older it stinks. You said you loved them when you were younger. Duh! The books are not for teens or older kids! They are for younger kidsa, and you said you enjoyed them when yoyu were younger, which means they are good books! Don'ty tell other people "don't buy this book" unless when you were little you still hated them. They are not dirested at your age group. This book was very gold, but maybe not as good as dome others. The endings are always twisty, and even though this isn;t his BEST, R.L. Stine did a very good job, and you should try and read this.

You're starting to really hate Pasadena because of the very, but I mean very hot weather. You've got three ideas to chose from.
(A) Live in the fridge. (B) Visit the Abom.inable Snowman. (C) Think of Snow. If you chosed B, you're correct! That was what Jordan and Nicole did. What do you do when you have snow from the Abominable Snowman's cave? You get rid of it, that's what! Read this book to give yourself Goosebumps!

A Kid's Review on November 14, 2000
Format: Paperback
This book was okay. It was a really sad plot and what happened to the pictures he took of it and what happened to Kara? I didn't like this book as much as the others. (Why don't you jump on over to R. L. Stines other book: "The Warewolf of Fever Swamp". (A young) reader from New Hampshire)
