I'm R.l. Stine. Let me introduce you to the newest visitor to The Nightmare Room. That's Laura Atkins, the tall, pretty girl surrounded by animals. Those are strays Laura found in the woods behind her house.
Laura loves the woods and its creatures. It's where she feels most at home. Unfortunately, there's a creature lurking in the woods that Laura will be sorry she met. In fact, there are several creatures hiding among the trees that don't belong there. That don't belong anywhere.
Laura's father has been acting strangely. He used to love walking in the woods with her. But now he orders her to stay away. Does he know something that Laura doesn't? Does he know that the path through the woods leads directly to ... The NIGHTMARE ROOM?
For ages 10 to 14.
