School Library Journal Review

Gr 2-4-R. L. Stine's tale (Scholastic, pap. 2008) opens with Billy and his sister Sheena spending time with their uncle on his hi-tech research boat where they discover that they are near the wreckage of a long-lost pirate ship. The three wedge themselves into their uncle's deep-sea submarine to search for the ruins. No sooner do they discover the ship than things start to go horribly awry. Narrated by Jeff Woodman, continuous eerie background music and simple, but copious sound effects give the production the feel of an old-time radio play. Distractingly loud mood music interferes with the narration of the opening sequence, but then quiets down. The undead skeletons' chant is unnerving and spine-chilling, and a suggested beheading (only in a character's imagination) seems excessively violent. This creepy, ghostly adventure is not for the faint of heart.-Jennifer Verbrugge, Dakota County Library, Galaxie Branch, Apple Valley, MN (c) Copyright 2010.
