I have watched R.L. Stines Goosebumps books fly of my classroom shelves for years so I was excited to see a different book by R.L. Stine. In the beginning of the book I think many children can relate to Artie’s stress of the first day of school, especially a new school.
As the story went on, I found myself unable to put the book down, curious as to how poor Artie would ever get out of repeating the first day of school over and over!
