Nightmares! The Sleepwalker Tonic

We rated this book:


Charlie has already beaten his nightmares once, and now sleeps like a baby. While in town with his friend Alfie, they see a sight that might give him nightmares again – a zombie! Because Charlie has had some contact with Nightmares – those creatures that haunt our worst dreams – he and Alfie go investigate. However, they surprise the man, who runs into a post. When he starts bleeding, they realize he can’t be a zombie at all, but are completely lost as to what his problem may be.

When Charlie visits the next town over in his dreams, he finds out something is very wrong in Orville Falls and it’s connected to the zombie. Worse yet, it’s moving toward his home town of Cypress Creek. To complicate matters, his family may lose their home, which houses a portal to the Nightmares.

Segel and Miller have done a superb job both on this sequel to Nightmares and keeping readers who haven’t read the first book informed. The story is a perfect thriller for younger readers, with illustrations that will enthral but not terrify. The scariest thing about this book is that the third book called The Lost Lullaby is not available until fall, 2016.
