Goosebumps- The Cuckoo Clock of Doom illustration will appear here.

The summary or description of my book is kind of funny and a little bit scary. The book is about a little boy that tries to play a little trick on his sister but instead he goes back in time. He gets smaller and as he goes to school he sees the clock in the window and tries to throw a brick to make it so the birds head is the way it is supposed to be but his Mom stopped him. This story is mostly about his birthday and when his sister tries to wreck it. When the girl comes to the party that he likes his sister tells her that he likes her. When the boy sets the clock back he finds out that the girl he likes, likes him back.

What I think of this book is that it is really cool. The reason I liked the book is because of how the sister got the brother in trouble all of the time. It was really funny. The part I really liked was when he was carrying out the cake and she stock out her foot and he fell and the cake went in his face. The reason I like this book is because this book made me laugh and no other book makes me do that.

I think other kids should read this book. If you like Goosebumps books you will like this one more. I think kids will feel the way I did if they do not like to read. I do not like to read so much but if it makes it so I am not watching TV then I will read more. I think that all kids should read this book not for school but for fun. What would you do if your sister did something to you and you wanted to do it back? I think that is what my sister and I do! If kids do not read it at home they should read it for a project.There are about 130 pages. I think the boy is like me.
