Creepy fun for ages 9-12!Review:
Camp nights or camp frights?
Every sleepaway camp promises memories that last a lifetime. But the memories from Camp Red Moon might give you nightmares!
The campfire appears to dim when the moon turns blood red and strange creatures prowl the forest.Do you find a total lookalike at camp? Is it coincidence or is he a shapeshifter trying to take over your life?Why don't your competitors at the robotics competition seem exactly...human?And why do campers do anything to avoid Cabin 6?The master of the scary story, R.L. Stine, has handpicked a staff of storytelling counselors - Dan Poblocki, Ellen Oh, and Justin Reynolds - to help him tell the creepy campfire stories that swirl around Camp Red Moon.
No matter how bright the campfire, get ready for some CHILLS!
Camp Red Moon was a young adult horror anthology put together by Audible Originals. It was read by a full cast and had 4 stories. The stories, while the title credit goes to R.L. Stine are all by different authors but are based in the same setting, Camp Red Moon. R.L. Stine's story is first and he also provides intros to the divisions of the book. His story was about Werewolves, followed by the stories from other authors, one about a new camper, one about robots, and the last a classic ghost tale. My favorite of the four was the new camper tale.
In the story a new camper arrives and starts acting a lot like the first friend he has made, then he starts slowly taking over his life at camp. The story was simple but had a lot of character development for such a short story and it was very spooky.
Stine's story was also a lot of fun and I got goosebumps from the ghost story, the only one that I might skip over next round it the robots one, I am not big on sci-fi generally but this story just didn't really do it for me. It was good, don't get me wrong, but I just felt wigged out over the other tales more.
Overall I really enjoyed this listen and think that I will listen to it again this summer as a good campfire read.
