Lindy names the ventriloquist's dummy she finds Slappy. Slappy is kind of ugly, but he's a lot of fun. Lindy's having a great time learning to make Slappy move and talk.
But Kris is jealous of all the attention her sister is getting. It's no fair. Why does Lindy always have all the luck?
Kris decides to get a dummy of her own. She'll show Lindy.
Then weird things begin to happen. Nasty things. Evil things. No way a dummy can be causing all the trouble. Or is there?
For ages 8 to 12.
