How would you feel if you had the freakiest father in the world? The father has been fired from his job and has taken over the basement with plants. But these are no ordinary plants. These plants make noises. Something goes terribly wrong! This book is horrific. Read the book to find out what happens, and will there be a happy ending?

I think this book is the best in the Goosebumps series. I think itís the best in the Goosebumps series because I donít like the basement in my house and I feel like Casey. It reminds me of a new book called Danger in the Attic. It reminds me of Danger in the Attic because in that book they also think things are alive. I noticed the father changed. First the father was all boring. Then, he became all fun. I this book is awesome.

I recommend this book to 2nd to 5th graders because itís not the easiest of books. People who really like scary things will really like this book. This book has 122 horrorific, dark and, scary pages. The thing that will really interest you is the endingÖ wait canít tell you that. If you want to find out what happens, run to the book store and buy the book today!
