Kayla reviews THERE’S A GIANT TRAPDOOR SPIDER UNDER YOUR BED

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Summary from Goodreads:

The thrill of a sleepover becomes sheer terror as kids voice their greatest fears into existence in this cheeky, vividly cinematic tale by New York Times bestselling author Edgar Cantero. Lights out.

It’s bad enough that its venom-dripping chelicerae can slice through flesh like warm butter. Worse? It’s right there under the bunk. It’s a fact now. To make it through the night, the children must obey the rules: don’t get out of bed, stay out of the shadows, and don’t wake the beast. But as the threats multiply, so do the rules of survival. And with the safety of dawn still hours away, the fun is just beginning.

My Take:

The narrator here does an excellent job of bringing the characters to life, and the sleepover scenario allowed me some time to reminisce. However, the fact that this tale is obviously the make-believing game of four children does not lend itself well to the “horror” genre, in my opinion.

If you want to kill and hour and have a few laughs, this will do you just fine. If you want to be scared, choose any other story in the collection.
