Book reviews: Nightmares! The Lost Lullaby

THE third of the Nightmares! series, it features Charlie Laird and his gang who battles horrors of the night.

After all his adventures in the previous books, Charlie has surely earned the right to have sweet dreams when he sleeps, but it is not to be.

These days, when he is asleep, he finds himself in a Netherworld field surrounded by a flock of creepy black sheep.

However, it is not Charlie's nightmare. He's trapped in someone else's bad dream and somehow he feels that his old nemesises are back.

Ick and Ink, the terrible twins, must be responsible and seeming to prove him right, Ink shows up in Cypress Creek Elementary and Charlie is convinced that she is up to no good.

The last time he tangled with the twins, Ick was trapped in the Netherworld while Ink disappeared in the real world.

Charlie and his cohorts guard the portal that connects the two realms and they are determined that Ink does not get Ick out.

His brother Jack, however, believes Ink to be good and is equally determined to prove her innocence.
In the meantime, it will be some time before anyone's dreams are sweet again.

This book has all the elements to make it a success. There are nightmare figures, mad scientist and witches, action, and even romance.

What more could you ask for to keep the young ones occupied?
