In Diary of a Wimpy Kid, author and illustrator Jeff Kinney introduces us to an unlikely hero. As Greg says in his diary: Just don't expect me to be all "Dear Diary" this and "Dear Diary" that. Luckily for us, what Greg Heffley says he won’t do and what he actually does are two very different things.

My name is Chase Cooper, and I'm a 6th grade ninja. It's my first day at a different school and the only person I know is my cousin, Zoe (but she might be a little too cool for me). I was just another scrawny kid until a group of ninjas recruited me into their clan. It was a world of trouble I wasn't prepared for, which is why I kept this diary (or "chronicle" as my dad would call it) - to warn other kids about the dangers of becoming a ninja. They say history is destined to repeat itself...well, not if I can help it.

Decent but I have some problems.

I think it was a good book and Christopher Gebauer did well, but there are some nitpicks I have. First of all, there are a lot of plot holes, and I get that this is supposed to be narrated by a middle schooler, but still. Second of all, I feel overwhelmed listening to these stories because there are so many stories and they are kind of disorganized. Third of all, I feel like at the end, there should be a part where the narrator speaks to his friend. That is all I have to say.

I loved it. It was such a great book. The story was such a fantastic experience, the narrator pernoced everything correctly, the only thing the narrator could improve is the voice. Sometimes it's a very important part and it sounds like the narrator has literally no feeling 😂😂. But overall it's a amazing book 99.999.0 percent recommend.

Coke and Pepsi McDonald didn’t want to jump off a cliff. They didn't want to get hit by poisoned darts from blowguns either. And they certainly don't want to get locked in their burning school, thrown into a pit at the top of a sand dune, or drowned in a vat of liquefied Spam. But what are you supposed to do when you’re being chased across the country by your insane health teacher and two guys in bowler hats who are trying to kill you? One thing's for sure, it'll be a snap for Coke and Pep to write their essays on "How I Spent My Summer Vacation."

Plot summary.

You may know Greg Heffley from his Diary of a Wimpy Kid stories. Yeah, well Rowley Jefferson is Greg’s best friend. He’s a generally nice kid, even though he does make some kinda silly, nonsensical choices sometimes that end up landing Greg in hot water.

But this book isn’t really about Greg.

Believe it or not, Rowley likes to write and draw composition books full of stories, too. And this one is chock full of semi-spooky, kinda silly and sometimes nonsensically made-up tales that are all designed for a stormy night, a flashlight and a blanket tent.

You’ve got the tale of an airport scanner that turns people into living skeletons (which isn’t all that bad when you consider the savings on makeup and hair gel). And then there’s the story of The Stain , a lie that spreads to creepy proportions. The Human Head is all about a kid who was school friends with the Headless Horseman before that villain had even learned to ride a pony. And there are 11 more like those.

These sketched-out yarns may be a little odd and a tad spooky. And there may even be a lesson squeezed in here or there like a toothbrush dropped in a bag full of Halloween candy bars. But it’s all Rowley Jefferson’s brain on display. Some would say that is scary enough.

Christian Beliefs

A fake funeral takes place in a local church and is led by a pastor. And a kid becomes “demon possessed” after watching a late night super-scary movie.

Other Belief Systems

This being a collection of “Spooky Stories,” there are some supernatural elements portrayed here, such as a friend who comes back as a ghost; a kid whom some think is a vampire (but who’s only a bad biter); a mummy who fails to become a famous personality; a kid version of Victor Frankenstein who robs a graveyard; a family of werewolves; and a zombie and space alien invasion.

All of these tales are seen through the imagination of a 10-year-old story writer and sketched out in simple pencil drawings, and so they’re very fun, broad and sometimes very silly. That said, they still may be too edgy for parents concerned with spookily spectral and supernatural fare.

Authority Roles

There are a number of parents and teachers represented in the stories. And they all try to support or help the young protagonists on hand. The only exceptions are in one story where some adult politicians make some poor decisions (as politicians are sometimes wont to do), and another tale where some family members ignore an elderly aunt. In a third story, a town full of adults collectively lie to teach a boy a badly needed lesson.

There is bad behavior here on the part of some of the kids, such as a prankster who’s always pranking those around him, a boy who lies, and a few others who disobey their parents. But all face a comeuppance by their story’s end. In fact, there are a number of lessons here. One story suggests that being just like everyone else isn’t as cool as it may seem. Another points out that lies come back to haunt you. Still another tale states that there’s a lot to be gained from having a relationship with elderly family members. And there are even subtle warnings about to much screen use and suggestions that you should be discerning in your media consumption.

Profanity & Violence

There are no language issues. A boy uses an age-reducing makeup. And a school system, thinking they have a vampire in their school, offers containers of blood along with the chocolate milk at lunch. There’s some zombie violence depicted. But the undead are convinced to eat tofu brains before any human ones are consumed. An angry mummy uses his mummy powers to zap and destroy a city. And a sleeping elderly person is accidentally buried alive (before being rescued).

Sexual Content

Nothing sexual. But several different boys have crushes on girls at school.

Discussion Topics

The supposed kid author of this story collection delivers some different variations to some classic monster and ghost stories. Do you think he was trying to make a point with some of these tales? What did you take away from the story “The Cellar?” What “scary” things were his parents hiding down there? What did you make of his reaction after they showed him?

How about “The Scanner” story? What do you think the people who were turned into skeletons took away from their experience? Does that apply to our real world? “The Stain” is another interesting take on a spooky idea. What do you think that was all about?

The closest real spiritual tale might be the story “The Demon.” What does it mean to be possessed? What did it mean in this story?

Additional Comments

Author Jeff Kinney has once again created a hybrid graphic novel-like book aimed at young readers and fans of his “from the mind of a 10-year-old” writing style. Some of the stories have lessons that are easy to see and others are a bit odd and seemingly there just for their strange chuckle-worthiness. One thing Christian parents should note, however, is that a few of the tales (especially one called “The Demon”) could well push past their level of spiritual comfort in spite of the intended lessons that are obviously in the mix here.

The Changing

Once there was a boy named Rowan; he was really youthful and he often played with his toys at school which attracted his classmate's attention and they frequently bullied him for it. One day, Rowan felt a unique tickling sensation upon his armpit and he excused himself to the bathroom so he could investigate; Rowan discovered a small single hair growing from his armpit and he freaked out. Rowan swiftly headed back to class right after pretending everything was normal but he still felt that everybody could deduce that something was different about him. While sprinting back home, Rowan recalled his mother storing some tweezers and he planned to utilize them to pull out his hair; however once he entered his bathroom his hair started sprouting all over his body and soon he was virtually covered with it. Rowan quickly rummaged through his parent's bathroom cabinet for a solution however once he uncovered a Hair Remover , he fainted from the fumes. Rowan woke up in bed and his parents entered his room to have the "talk". Rowan's parents informed him that he was beginning to go through a "changing" and they disclosed that they were actually all werewolfs and he was just evolving into one alike to them. This all started evoking memories to Rowan of his parents acting like werewolfs and Rowan presumed that deep down he didn't want to acknowledge the truth. Rowan started weeping as he just wanted to be a regular kid but his parents assured him that he would have a superbly normal life if he concealed who they were away from the rest of the world. Rowan rebuffed as he had always been educated to be yourself however his parents retracted it stating that there are some ignorant people who hate on anyone different. Rowan then asked his parents if werewolfs eat people which they replied stating that it prompted another talk later on; however Rowan figured that they did so he attended school the next day as himself and nobody ventured to interfere with him. This inspired his parents to do the same and from then on Rowan and his family behaved as their true selves and everybody else was forced to handle with it themselves.

The Prankster

The Prankster

There once lived a boy called Jasper who loved pulling pranks. Sometimes he even played pranks on his family members, like gluing his mother's furniture to the ceiling. His most infamous prank was putting the Mayor's underwear on a flagpole. People thought his pranks were hilarious until he made a prank on them . One morning, Jasper woke up and started deciding who to prank today. He decided to replace the baker's cream-filled doughnuts with toothpaste, and when he went to the bakery, he noticed that Marian and Miki, citizens of the village, ignored him. The librarian and his best friend ignored him too. When the baker, Joris, was distracted, he tried to reach the doughnuts but his hand went right through them! That's when he discovered he couldn't see himself in the mirror. Jasper realized that nobody could see him, and all the people ignored him even when he made a total fool of himself! He tried that again in the Mommy and Me club, but people were still ignoring him. That's when he realized that he could pull awesome pranks with being invisible. But then he saw people he knew dressed in black - they all were sad. Jasper's mother was one of those people. Jasper followed the people to a funeral, and he sat near them. The preacher told the people that a boy died while trying to pull a prank, and that boy turned out to be Jasper. When the people were remembering Jasper, they didn't say any nice things, only remembering his awful pranks. And it was hard for Jasper to watch when his mother cried near his coffin. The invisible Jasper decided to say goodbye too, even though it felt weird. But suddenly Jasper saw that there was nobody in the coffin - only a pumpkin looking like Jasper's head. That's when the people revealed that Jasper was not invisible - it was a big prank. The baker revealed that the doughnuts were just a hologram. And Jasper couldn't see himself in a mirror because all the mirrors in the mirror shop were replaced by TVs showing an empty pavement. The people from the Mommy and Me class revealed that they actually saw Jasper and that it was hard not to laugh. The whole village was trying to make the prank work. Then the preacher said that it was a double prank, because a meteor actually crashed in the village, so all people including Jasper were now ghosts. But Jasper was only happy, because now he could fly, so he jumped from the top of the lighthouse to fly to Paris... but it was just a second prank, and Jasper fell, and that's when the people understood they went overboard.

Lilli's teeth started to come in and they were really sharp. As Lilli got older, she had playdates but the other kids always ended up crying because of you know what. She was bought books about not biting but she never stopped. Plus books were one of the favourite things Lilli liked to chew on. Lilli was now old enough for kindergarten but her parents didn't warn the teacher that Lilli liked to bite people and she bit the teacher so she got sent home early. Lilli's parents saw the doctor and she said Lilli was a vampire. Lilli's mother then remembered how Lilli had become a vampire and she started considering Transylvania: School for Biters. A few weeks later, the doctor said that Lilli actually wasn't a vampire and they kept it a secret between themselves.

One day, Anders suggests Gunther to propose but Gunther was rejected, making him evil. Prudence marries Anders and lived a fulfilling life.

The Scanner

There is an announcement for a high-tech security scanner to be released at airports, which can scan multiple people at once. Everyone is excited and scientists are forced to rush the project. When it is released, everyone who walks through it (though some people do not) becomes a skeleton. At first, the skeletons are happy because they don't have to do certain things that they would before. However, many shops start to shut down, everyone looks the same on Halloween, parents collect the wrong kid from daycare and more trouble. The skeletons become angry but the scientists don't know how to reverse it. The skeletons break into the airport, storming it and collecting the scanner, which they destroy, turning them all back.

There is a boy named Rafe that loved his parents and helped with cleaning the chicken coop, and he didn’t complain. Rafe would wake up really early to read books, and read until the sun went down. On some special nights, his parents would give him a candle so that he could read longer, and sometimes he would stay up extra late if he liked the book. But candles in bed were not a good idea back then. He liked to read stories about children, this was because his lack of friends. Rafe always wanted to take trips somewhere to meet other people, but his parents said the trip was dangerous, and they showed him why, so he made his own friends out of mud and straw, but one day Rafe Heard strange noises from the cellar. He told his parents, but they told him he was dreaming. Rafe wondered why his dad was in the cellar from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm, but didn’t want to ask. Years passed and Rafe turned 18. His parents said it was time to tell the truth of where they came from. They said the lived in a world with “cars” and “airplanes” and “medicine”, but they told Rafe about they dark side. The “screens” were taking people under their spell. They took Rafe away from technology because they didn’t want him to turn out like other people, but they gave Rafe a phone, but that was also a bad idea.

There is a woman named Fannie, but her family calls her Great Aunt Fannie, she didn’t have any kids, but had nephews and nieces and they had kids of their own, so no one had time to visit because they were too wrapped up in their own things. Fannie had the same routine everyday. She would watch her soap operas, then when she was tired she would take a nap, then she would wake up and make a sandwich and then watch more soap operas. One day she saw a gadget on the TV that if you press the button when you fall, people will come to help you. Like 911. Everybody in the town was exited because it was Big Game. Tickets sold out, so people watched on TV, but Fannie’s family wanted to watch it. Because of this, they needed to get a big TV. The only person with one was Fannie, so they went over to her place. Her family walked in while she was taking a nap and they thought she was dead, so they did the funeral quick so they could watch the game, but Fannie had that gadget she bought off of TV, so she used it and the people got her out of the grave. She went home where everybody was watching the game. They didn’t care if she was alive or not. They were too focused on the game. After that she hung out with her family more, but one time they brought her with them to an amusement park, but she was dead, and they didn't figure out until half way through the vacation.

One Saturday afternoon, Robbie's parents asked him if he wanted to go to the mall. Robbie was very excited and thought about all the fun he'd have once he got there. But Robbie's parents were here to shop, not to have fun, and they visited a bunch of stores that only grownups like. Robbie's parents knew he wasn't having any fun so they gave him five dollars to buy an ice cream for him and his dad. On the way there, Robbie saw his favourite ride which was a rocket ship that went back and forth but Robbie reminded himself that he was too old for kiddie rides. Robbie made it to the ice cream shop and ordered Rocky Road for himself and strawberry for his dad. On his way back, he saw the rocket ship ride and was tempted to use his change for it so Robbie closed his eyes but he tripped and Rocky Road ice cream went on the floor. He tried to put it back together but it was hopeless. Then Robbie had an idea. He pretended that the strawberry ice cream cone was his and the Rocky Road was his dad's. Robbie felt terrible when his parents believed him. When Robbie got home, he noticed a small pink spot on his white t shirt. He went to the bathroom to scrub it clean. He soaked it in the sink but that made it worse. Robbie ran to the laundry room and threw his shirt into the washing machine. That night Robbie had horrible dreams and most of them involved strawberries. Robbie got out bed and went to the laundry room and he got a terrible surprise. His dad put his work shirts with Robbie's stained t shirt and now they were all pink. Robbie decided to run away but his mom caught before he went to far. He then confessed and they told him that everyone makes mistakes and the important thing is to learn from them. Robbie's parents took him back to the mall and Robbie brought three ice creams all Rocky Road. Robbie forgot his dad was allergic to almonds and his father's lips swelled up like balloons. Robbie noticed a small chocolate stain on his shirt and the whole thing started up again.

A mummy named Mekh died a long time ago and was mummified Egyptian priest's and a few archaeologists found his sarcophagus and also took his things with him. When Mekh woke up and found out that he is not in the afterlife, he was disappointed and also more disappointed that the people who were in charge of the museum put Mekh's body and his sarcophagus next to the family restroom which is not a nice spot to what he thinks. He was angry so he used his mummy powers to create a big mess in the museum. He wasn't satisfied after he destroyed the whole museum and the the decided that he wanted to destroy the whole city and he was all over the news for wrecking the city. He still wasn't satisfied and started to destroy other places like Paris but he then had more things to destroy so he destroys things that is not important like a pinata that nobody even cares about. Mekh then steeled down and thought that TV was a good invention. When he watched the news, he found out that a new mummy was found and his name was called Khaba. He was much better preserved than Mekh and unlike Mekh, Khaba was more curious and did not go randomly destroying things like what Mekh does. He appeared in morning talk shows and then became popular that he even got his own merchandise but those were made without permission. He hired a lawyer and she shut down all of the stores were shut down and his lawyer took it a step further and trademarked "The MUMMY™". Everywhere Mekh went, he saw the face Khaba in cereals there was even a film in works. Mekh thought he could try to so he called himself "THE ORIGINAL MUMMY", though he got a message from Khaba's lawyer threatening to sue him. So Mekh got himself his own lawyer and it was this huge trial on TV. Everyone watched but unfortunately his wasn't slick as Khaba's so Khaba won. So he was only allowed to call himself "a mummy" (lower case) so he tried to get some quick cash but he didn't make any. He tried working at a place called Fright Nights At October but nobody was scared he didn't give up though then he called himself The Dead Pharaoh but there was somebody with that name so again he was in court. Things were great for a few years for Khaba but he got stale and soon had a comedy show with a few stinkers somebody found a toe in his cereal. Even though the whole thing was faked nobody buyed his cereal and soon his money had dried up. In fact his wife left him, took all of his cash, and he finally hit rock bottom by selling his sarcophagus. So he moved to Mekh's apartment. And they both did agree the television was a pretty good invention.

The Science Project

There was this Kid named Victor he was not happy. This was long before video games and TV were created so he entertained himself with books but his parents were doctors so the only ones in the house were science medicine and stuff. 1 thing that made him sad was that they didn't let him have a pet because he wasn't responsible enough. In fact the only that made Victor happy was school and from reading all those books his science teacher said he'd become famous. When it was time for the science fair he was excited, he had worked a month on his project so Victor hoped he won but Lizzie Leggot won and all Victor got was a lousy honourable mention. Then all he could think of was the science fair he read parents books back to back trying to think of his new project then he looked at the cemetery at the back of his house and got an idea, Victor did experiments in the Attic his parents thought he was spending to much time there. They wondered if should've got a pet. 1 year later it was time for the science fair, so he brought his project to school. All of his hard work paid of and this time Lizzie was the one who got honourable mention. After school Victor thought he could ditch his creation at the cemetery but he started having fun with him and soon it was his pet! Victor got famous just like his science teacher predicted each year he got older while his pet didn't and when he died his loyal sidekick was still there. Years past and people forgot about Victor but his pet became kinda famous. He didn't know what to do but eventually he went to school. Even though he was a lot bigger his classmates didn't care. He started skipping grades because he was so smart. In middle school he entered the science fair, got first place like Victor and if your wondering what materials he used its better not to answer!

The Medicine Cabinet

A curious kid named Ryan liked to look everywhere, because he was so curious. One time, his parents told him to never go in the medicine cabinet in the bathroom. but he couldn't stop thinking about what was in it, so he waited until his parents were asleep, then he went in. He found some makeup, and rubbed some on his cheeks, just for fun. when he woke up the next morning, he saw that he looked even younger than he was and went back to the medicine cabinet and saw that it was not ordinary makeup but Age Reversing Make-Up. Ryan hid it from his parents by wearing a hoodie and running out of the door before his mom could give him a kiss. At school Ryan put his hoodie up, so his classmates wouldn't make fun of him but his teacher didn't allow kid with hoods on in class so he removed it and everybody laughed. Ryan's teacher wasn't surprised and she gave Ryan a note on how to reverse it. Even though Ryan's teachers secret formula stopped him from getting any younger, it didn't make him go back to looking like his old self. So Ryan knew he had to confess. Ryan's mom and dad said they had him later in life and they used that makeup to look younger. Since Ryan used all of his parents makeup they were stuck looking like this for good. Ryan didn't care how old they looked because he loved them. From then on, things were pretty great for Ryan's family. Even though, sometimes, people looked at them funny they did not care because they had each other and that's all that mattered.

The Invasion

The people of Fairview are very happy people but zombie invasions start happening across the world and they close in on Fairview. The leaders of the city meet together and discuss their plan. The mayor orders everyone to welcome the zombies and give them fake brains, which works. The zombies end up liking the fake brains and the humans and zombies unite, living happy lives. However, aliens arrive. The new mayor (Tiffany Rottenflesh), a zombie, suggests that they welcome the aliens. However, the aliens destroy the humans and zombies, taking over Fairview.

Rowley and Greg watch a scary movie at a sleepover called THE POSSESSION , and in the movie a bunch of teenagers find a demon book with demon writing. They then read it and one of their friends gets possessed by a demon. After, Rowley gets scared and they turn off the movie. Greg says the movie is cheesy and the effects looked fake, but Rowley says that what if someone said the words in the book, so Greg says the words. Greg gets "possessed" by a demon (he is obviously faking since Rowley is so naïve) and starts wrecking things until Rowley sprinkles toilet water on Greg and Greg gets mad, and then Robert and Linda Jefferson kick Greg out of the house.

Educational Value

For some kids, this is an introduction to common creatures in horror tales. The short stories here introduce mummies, werewolves, vampires, Frankenstein's monster, zombies, ghosts, the Headless Horseman (as a high schooler), and demons.

Positive Messages

A character learns a lesson about going into his parents' medicine cabinet. Another kid learns how a lie can get out of control and how only telling the truth can fix it. A prankster learns that his constant jokes aren't appreciated. People who turn into skeletons learn how boring it is to all look the same.

Positive Role Models

Each story features different characters facing off against supernatural forces or turning into supernatural creatures or skeletons or being fooled into believing bizarre things. Some characters are better off by the end of the story, but most are carried away by the bizarre circumstances they find themselves in. A few times bizarre happenings lead to parents having to tell their kids the truth about who they are.

Violence & Scariness

A grandma is buried alive, but recovered. A man thinks he's dead and jumps from a tower. A kid dies (with no mention of how) and comes back as a ghost to hang out with his BFF. Zombies and aliens invade with both surprisingly good and bad results. People pop out of an airport scanner as skeletons. A mummy goes on a rampage, mostly breaking things. Rowley's friend Greg pretends to be possessed by a demon and messes up Rowley's house. A boy who's just a head befriends someone missing a head. Implied that a school-age Frankenstein got "materials" for his science fair project at the cemetery.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Rowley Jefferson's Awesome Friendly Spooky Stories is the third spin-off story featuring Rowley, the gullibly sweet best friend of Greg, who most kids know from the blockbuster Wimpy Kid series. This time Rowley is simply telling a bunch of ghost stories and not actually in one until the end, when Wimpy Kid Greg tricks Rowley into thinking he, Greg, is possessed by a demon (who does nothing more than messing up Rowley's house and eating a bunch of food). Rowley tells stories about many characters from the horror genre -- from werewolves to the Headless Horseman -- but it never gets that scary. The werewolf is a middle school boy just learning his family's secret and the Headless Horseman is a high schooler who befriends a boy who's just a head. Even when a grandma is buried alive, it turns out fine and rather funny. When a man thinks he's already dead and jumps from a lighthouse, maybe not so much. Zombies and aliens invade with both surprisingly good and bad results, people pop out of an airport scanner as skeletons, a mummy goes on a rampage breaking things, and it's implied that a school-age Frankenstein got "materials" for his science fair project at the cemetery. On the whole there's a lot less potty humor than you'll be used to in the Wimpy Kid world -- only one kid is seen sitting on a toilet. There's also one picture of naked stick figures covering themselves up adequately and a few scenes of a guy in his undies running around. One story includes romance and a kiss, another includes a crush on a girl, and a boy mentions the talk he had with his parents about how babies are made.

What's the Story?

In ROWLEY JEFFERSON'S AWESOME FRIENDLY SPOOKY STORIES, Wimpy Kid Greg's friend Rowley tries his hand at telling short horror stories. Fourteen tales feature a young werewolf, a prankster who gets pranked, a boy whose friend comes back as a chatty ghost, a girl whose parents think she's a vampire, a boy who's just a head who befriends the headless horseman and together they ask a girl to a school dance, an airport scanner that turns everyone into skeletons, a boy who thinks he lives in the middle ages, a grandma who napped so soundly that her family buried her, a fibbing boy haunted by an ice cream stain, an unpopular mummy taken to court by a popular mummy for copyright infringement, a boy named Frankenstein with a very curious science fair experiment, a boy tempted by his parents' forbidden medicine cabinet, and a town trying to find a way to live amicably with invading zombies. It ends with Rowley telling a story he's sure is the honest truth, about that time his friend Greg got possessed by a demon, messed up his house, and ate all his food.

Is It Any Good?

Scary stories are all in the telling, and when Wimpy Kid Greg's sweet and innocent friend Rowley tells them, expect them to be mild enough for young readers and mildly funny. There are none of the outrageous Wimpy Kid-level antics here, except when a grandma is buried alive (it ends fine!) and the last story of 14, when Greg convinces Rowley that he, Greg, has been possessed by a demon. Because it's Rowley's perspective, Rowley is 100 percent convinced it happened, which makes it uncomfortably funny if you're the sort to wish Rowley had much nicer friends. Poor kid. Hints of friendship woes return in the story "Ghost Friend," where a boy's BFF comes back as a ghost and makes life miserable for him.

By far the oddest story is the one where one mummy sues another for copyright infringement. How would Rowley, our naive narrator, know what this is? The story with the funniest twists and turns is "The Invasion," in which a town handles a zombie invasion in a refreshing way. Overall, kids will have fun with the variety of tales and standard horror characters in Rowley Jefferson's Awesome Friendly Spooky Stories , and tehy may even be inspired to imagine some of their own to tell around the campfire.

Talk to Your Kids About ...

Families can talk about perspective in the last story in Rowley Jefferson's Awesome Friendly Adventure, titled "The Demon." How does Rowley tell the story? How would Wimpy Kid Greg tell it?

Is Greg a good friend to Rowley? What about the ghost in the story "Ghost Friend"? What happens to the boy later in life who always follows along with his friend?

Which of these horror characters -- werewolves, vampires, mummies, zombies, ghosts, etc. -- have you read about or seen before? Where? Which are totally new?

Are you interested in reading more scary stories? How scary do you like your stories? When are they too scary for you?

Literature / Rowley Jefferson's Awesome Friendly Spooky Stories

Edit locked.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/71yr36ptt5l.jpg

Rowley Jefferson's Awesome Friendly Spooky Stories is a book that is the third in the Awesome Friendly series, coming after Rowley Jefferson's Awesome Friendly Adventure . It is about Rowley Jefferson's spooky stories , and don't worry, they're friendly. It came out on March 16, 2021.

This book contains 14 chapters: The Changing , The Prankster , Ghost Friend , The Biter , The Human Head , The Scanner , The Cellar , The Nap , The Stain , a mummy , The Science Project , The Medicine Cabinet , The Invasion , and The Demon .

BOO ! Did that scare you? If it did maybe you should pick something else that's a bit less scary:

  • Actually Not a Vampire : Lilli in The Biter is thought to be a vampire since she had sharp teeth and really liked to bite things. It turns out she just likes to bite things, though her parents still tell people that Lilli is a vampire since that got her a lot of friends.
  • Advertised Extra : Greg appears in promotional material as a zombie. When he appears, it's at the very end of the book and he only appears a few times, plus he isn't a zombie but rather a demon.
  • Alien Invasion : At the end of The Invasion , a big UFO comes to Fairville. Since letting the enemies in worked last time, the town does the same plan again. Unlike the zombies, the aliens use this to their advantage, and soon the entire town is no more.
  • all lowercase letters : The title for a mummy .
  • Artistic License – Geography : In a mummy , the Tokyo Skytree and the Daikanransha are right next to each-other, and the same goes for the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe. Justified, as Rowley is just a kid and probably didn't study enough to know this.
  • Attending Your Own Funeral : In The Prankster , Jasper was a huge prankster, and sometimes he annoyed the townsfolk. So the entire town fakes his death, and when Jasper realizes he's dead he goes to his funeral because he felt like he had to. Sure enough, people start laughing and Jasper realizes he got duked.
  • Author Avatar : Many of the characters look like or behave like Rowley.
  • Big Friendly Dog : Parodied. A certain character in The Science Project acts just like a dog, and is extremely loyal. This character is... Frankenstein.
  • Bilingual Bonus : In a mummy , Mekh goes around destroying things as revenge for being put in a museum. One of the newspapers says “ミイラ、東京を破壊” ("miira, Tokyo o hakai"), which is Japanese for "mummy destroys Tokyo".
  • Black Speech : Greg says this in The Demon thinking it's just something from a movie, and ends up turning into a demon.
  • Buried Alive : Aunt Fannie is buried alive because her family thought she was dead. She had brought Senior S.O.S., luckily, so she alerts workers that she's buried and they come save her.
  • Chummy Mummy : When Khaba is discovered, he's pretty chill with the new world, and is actually interested in all the new gadgets. His niceness causes him to become an overnight celebrity.
  • Constantly Curious : Ryan in The Medicine Cabinet liked to check in every nook and cranny of his house because he liked to explore his house. Until he searched the medicine cabinet.
  • Content Warnings : The book starts out with a parody of a warning (quoted at the very top of the tropes list) telling us to read some other book if we can't handle horror.
  • Defanged Horrors : Not many of the stories are outright horrific, often having some sort of wholesome twist on them by the end. This is intentional, since it's Rowley writing the book, and he's easily scared himself.
  • Demonic Possession : In The Demon , Greg recites a demonic message from a horror movie to prove it's nothing. Sure enough, he gets possessed and trashes the house. Or ''is'' he possessed ?
  • Happens in Ghost Friend , where Rusty’s grades are lowered dramatically and can’t get a job or wife because Gabe had bothered him so much he couldn’t focus on a single thing.
  • Happens in The Nap , where Aunt Fannie dies at the beginning of Summer vacation and none of her family realized it until the week was halfway over.
  • Happens in The Stain , where Robbie accidentally triggers his dad's allergy to strawberry, causing the previously-defeated strawberry stain to reappear on his crisp white shirt.
  • Happens for the final time in The Invasion , where a UFO appears on top of the town. The citizens decide to be nice to the aliens because that worked with the zombies, and the aliens kill the humans and zombies, taking over the city.
  • Dr. Fakenstein : Victor ends up becoming a Dr. Frankenstein parody, but is actually expanded upon because he does more than create Frankenstein. Of course, Frankenstein is still his most famous creation, but Victor did some cool stuff.
  • "Fawlty Towers" Plot : Downplayed, as not many lies are told. In The Stain , Robbie drops one of two ice creams he brought and tells a lie that the ice cream he dropped was his dad's and not his (for some reason). This causes a strawberry ice cream stain to appear on his crisp white shirt, so he washes it and lies that he's simply just doing a load of laundry. He wakes up the next day to find out the strawberry stain turned all the clothes pink . This stresses Robbie out so much he tries to sneak out, but is caught by his parents.
  • Friendly Skeleton : All the skeletons in The Scanner . This is quite obvious, since they are still real people, just that they've been turned into skeletons by the scanner.
  • Friendly Zombie : In The Invasion , the mayor decides to just let the zombies in and be nice to them. Turns out, it was Crazy Enough to Work , and the zombies decide that they want to be nice too, and are accepted into society.
  • Headless Horseman : He appears in The Human Head , and his name is Gunther. The reason he became evil was because his crush chose his friend Anders over him, making him jealous. He actually strikes during Valentines Day and not Halloween, unlike most people think.
  • Idiosyncratic Episode Naming : Aside from Ghost Friend and a mummy , every story is named "The ____".
  • Lost Food Grievance : In The Stain , after Robbie drops his rocky road ice cream, he gets so upset he nearly cries.
  • Monumental Damage : During Mekh's rage, he destroys the Eiffel Tower, damages the Arc de Triomphe, and burns the Tokyo Skytree and the Daikanransha.
  • Never Say "Die" : In Ghost Friend , Rusty's best friend Gabe dies for no reason , but Rowley doesn't say he dies because "it's way too sad for a kids book". It becomes pointless quickly because Gabe is confirmed dead two pages later.
  • New Technology Is Evil : In The Cellar , Rafe is kept from the world for his entire life. The reason for this is because the world was too hooked on technology to be good, so his parents isolated him so he wouldn't get addicted to a screen as well. Unfortunately, Rafe's parents thought he could be trusted to have a job and have a phone at the same time, and Rafe ends up getting hooked.
  • Older Than They Look : It turns out Ryan's parents are actually 114 and 112. Ryan doesn't want to say it out loud, but that's old .
  • Prank Gone Too Far : After the town pranks Jasper, he's told that it wasn't a prank; a meteor came the night before and wiped out the town. Jasper realizes that if he's a ghost, he can fly, and tries to fly to Paris. The townsfolk realize they took things too far when Jasper ends up falling off a lighthouse.
  • The Prankster : Jasper is. After all, his story is called "The Prankster".
  • Red Sock Ruins the Laundry : When Robbie puts his stained clothes in the washer, he wakes up the next day to find the clothes are all pink, including his dad's nice shirt.
  • Ridiculously Alive Undead : Parodied. When the zombies first arrive in Fairville, they acted as generic zombies, hands in front and all. But when they become friendly, they're able to talk, use swingsets, and learn. One even becomes mayor of Fairville.
  • Sore Loser : Why does Victor create Frankenstein and become a famous scientist? Because he got second place in a science project, and held a petty grudge.
  • Stripped to the Bone : In The Scanner , the titular scanner somehow transforms people into skeletons. They're all still alive, fortunately.
  • Sudden Downer Ending : In The Prankster , Jasper is tricked by the townsfolk into believing that everyone including him died when a meteor hit the town. This only results in Jasper deciding to try and fly to Paris due to thinking that he was a ghost. However, he ends up throwing himself off the lighthouse instead, and is implied to have died, meaning that the townsfolk had caused the death of a child.
  • Surprisingly Sudden Death : Gabe just... dies. No reason why he dies, all we know is that he's a ghost now and he's dead.
  • We Come in Peace — Shoot to Kill : When the aliens attack Fairville, all the citizens let them in assuming that would soften them up. Believe it or not , it doesn't work.
  • Wonderful Werewolf : When Rowan finds out he's a werewolf, he stays the same good kid and just intimidates people so he doesn't get bullied. This makes his parents realize it's okay to be werewolves in public too.
