Hello, I'm R.l. Stine. Do you ever wish you could see into the future? Would it make you happy to know what questions are on tomorrow's history test? Or which team is going to win the basketball game Friday night?
Knowing the future made Alex Smith very happy. You see, Alex has a bad habit. He likes to make bets with his friends.
One day, Alex finds a very special diary. The diary tells Alex the future--all he needs to know to win every bet.
Alex thinks he's lucky.
But sometimes it doesn't help to know the future. Sometimes the future holds some terrifying surprises. You see, when Alex opened the cover to the diary, he opened the door ... to THE NIGHTMARE ROOM.
For ages 10 to 14.
