Nightmares!
by Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller and Karl Kwasny




Overview -
Coraline meets Monsters, Inc. in this delightfully entertaining offering from actor Jason] Segel and co-author Kirsten] Miller.--Publishers Weekly

The hilariously frightening, middle-grade novel Nightmares is a Texas Bluebonnet nominee and the first book in a trilogy about a boy named Charlie and a group of kids who must face their fears to save their town.

Charlie Laird has several problems.

1. His dad married a woman he is sure moonlights as a witch.
2. He had to move into her purple mansion--the creepiest place in Cypress Creek.
3. He can't remember the last time sleeping wasn't a nightmarish prospect. Like even a nap.

What Charlie doesn't know is that his problems are about to get a whole lot more real. Nightmares can ruin a good night's sleep, but when they start slipping out of your dreams and into the waking world . . . well, that's something only Charlie can face. And he's going to need all the help he can get, or it might just be lights-out for Charlie Laird.

For good.
