Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

For the first time ever, Goosebumps is in hard cover! Catch the series' most notorious characters--undead or alive...

From horror master R.L. Stine come two new chilling stories in one spooky standalone:

Lu-Ann Franklin usually loves Halloween. Not this year. Her best friend, Devin O'Bannon, is going away for the week. And when Lu-Ann comes face-to-face with The Haunted Mask, major trouble lies ahead.

Devin O'Bannon didn't want to leave his best friend Lu-Ann Franklin behind on Halloween. He didn't want to go on this trip. That was all before he heard the strange scratching on his windows and saw the shadows moving around in the fields. Something is out there and it doesn't seem to want Devin around!

The haunted mask -- Lu-Ann's story -- Devin's story -- Polly's house.

When she discovers an evil mask at the bottom of a trunk and puts it on, LuAnn's Halloween turns into a real nightmare because only an act of unbelievable kindness can remove it.

Booklist Review

Sure, the Goosebumps series made Stine the standard bearer of middle-grade horror for generations, but can he still hold his own against newer upstart competitors? Have no fear actually, have plenty of fear the master has still got it. In this twentieth-anniversary edition of Goosebumps, Stine offers two intertwined yarns with irresistible premises. First, 12-year-old Lu-Ann uncovers a terrifying mask in an attic, perfect for that evening's Halloween party, but it melts into her skin and tearing it off would mean ripping off her own face. Plus, it seems to imbue her with an uncontrollable, hulking (and for the reader, cathartic) rage. In a concurrent tale, Lu-Ann's friend Devin finds himself working with his dad at a Halloween pumpkin patch that just happens to have been planted over an ancient graveyard. The enemy this time: creeping vines. There might be a few too many prank fake-outs and crying-wolf moments, but this book offers a great opportunity to rediscover what makes Stine so special: his swift characterizations, icky ideas, and prose that offers the exact right amount of cover-your-eyes detail. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: This twentieth anniversary comes with a few perks: this is the first Goosebumps book in hardback, and the jacket reverses to become a poster. Expect renewed interest in the whole series.--Kraus, Daniel Copyright 2010 Booklist
