I was totally enthralled by this horror story for kids. And though it is intended for kids, undoubtably adults will also enjoy it. Alex is lured into an apartment by a witch and is imprisoned. Another child is also there, and she tell him of others who were there, but are now gone. Or at least, they are no longer children. Alex must tell the witch a horror story each night. It is his only hope of staying alive long enough to figure out how to escape. This creepy book is a wonderfully scary tale, made even more so by the great performance of narrator Kirby Heyborne. The two kid protagonists join forces, using their wits and their brawn to defeat the witch. Author J. A. White crafts a story that engrossing and suspenseful, yet not too scary for older kids. He pays attention to details, drops some clues along the way to entice readers, and wraps everything up in a satisfying conclusion. It’s a great tale, and highly recommended for kids of all ages. Well, at least middle grade school ages and on up to grandparents! ( )

Fun and creepy!

After being lured into Apartment 4E by his favorite movie, Night of the Living Dead, Alex realizes he’s been tricked and captured by a witch named Natacha, and that the apartment is somehow magical (and evil). Natacha informs Alex that if he wants to live, he must read her one of his scary stories every night. The only other inhabitant, a fellow prisoner named Yazmin, assures Alex there is no way to escape, but he doesn’t believe her. Determined to find a way out, he continues to read the witch a story every night while searching for a way out during the day. But soon, he only has one story left.

What I liked: fabulous storyline! An evil witch, a magical apartment, a ticking time bomb—great setting for suspense! And the stories Alex shares with the witch, and the reader, are creepy and fun. It’s like a cross between Hansel and Gretel and Scheherazade. Great characters, too.

What I didn’t like: not much. It might be a little dark for some younger readers (7 or 8-year-olds) who get scared easily, but if they’re good with Goosebumps, then they should be fine.

Great and fun book.

This was so fun, I listened to the audiobook and the narrator did an amazing job keeping the listener entertained, they were so into playing the characters that it helped really pull the listener in and want to keep listening.

The overall story was spooky and whimsical, I really liked the main character ALEX, he had such a great Imagination and I loved that it was on the darker side. Not only was he a great little storyteller but he was a pretty good problem solver. There were many times I thought I figured something out but I kept being wrong and I so enjoyed that, it was predictable and that’s a plus for me.

I enjoyed the end when more of the inspiration of where the story pulled from started to come to light, and it created such an interesting take on a tale everyone already knows. ( )

Nightbooks is a eerie story that older elementary readers will enjoy. It tells the story of a boy named Alex, that is deceived and led astray by a witch. She takes him to her apartment, which appears to have magical powers. The witch requires Alex to tell her a new scary story every night in order to stay alive. The protagonist is very relatable to readers, as he struggles with the reality of not seeing his mom, and he wrestles with the fact that she will realize that he is missing and the heartbreak that will cause her. The story connects elements of Arabian Nights and The Brothers Grimm into the plot, which has some potential to give readers other avenues to explore after finishing this story. The story definitely has a creepy element to the storyline, so it would not be an appropriate choice for any student that might struggle with anxiety. However, it is an enjoyable read that goes by quickly and I believe students would get into the exciting plot.

Alex is lured into a 4th floor apartment when he thinks her hears his favorite movie, Night of the living Dead, playing. He finds that he has been trapped by a witch like many children before him. Inside, the apartment, is sprawling and magical. He finds his Nightbooks, scary stories he has written, come in handy as the witch needs scary stories read every night. Yasmin is also trapped there. The two work together and hatch a plan to escape. ( )
