Fans of Goosebumps and Ghostbusters will love the first book in this spine-tingling new horror series for young readers. As president of the Monsters' Anonymous Club (MAC), David Reid knows first-hand that it takes one part courage, two parts teamwork, three parts brains, and a big dash of humor to fight the unseen monsters that haunt the attics and backwoods of his hometown. Fortunately, David is aided in his ongoing battles with the supernatural by a fearless team of preteen ghostbusters including Laura Chen, the MAC's vice-president whose background in dance has made her a top-notch athlete; Jeremy Bauer, the club's resident smart aleck; Jeremy's bratty and very pesky little sister Kimmy; budding scientist Austin Reese; Carla Freeman with her encyclopedic knowledge of the paranormal world; Eddie Gonzales with his telepathic ability to communicate with animals; and Stinky, Eddie's new pet hamster, who just happens to be the perfect three-inch, four-legged spy. In book one, "Don't Play with Dead Things," the MAC must battle a fiendish ghost that has possessed Jeremy and Kimmy's mother and is threatening to take over the town unless our intrepid heroes can act quickly to stop the beast in its tracks.
