    Some of the best books R.L Stine wrote are in the Goosebumps Series 2000 By that time he d gotten as good a handle on the format as he was going to get, and was a seasoned pro at inconspicuously setting up bizarre twists for his storylines The action often comes across as fresher andunpredictable than the original Goosebumps series, veering crazily all over the road, and that s a prime strength of Full Moon Fever There were a couple of werewolf books in the original series The Werewo Some of the best books R.L Stine wrote are in the Goosebumps Series 2000 By that time he d gotten as good a handle on the format as he was going to get, and was a seasoned pro at inconspicuously setting up bizarre twists for his storylines The action often comes across as fresher andunpredictable than the original Goosebumps series, veering crazily all over the road, and that s a prime strength of Full Moon Fever There were a couple of werewolf books in the original series The Werewolf of Fever Swamp and Werewolf Skin , but I don t believe either was equal to this fast paced and surprisingly philosophical look at the consequences of disrespect in the face of powers beyond our ken It s a typical Halloween evening out trick or treating for Robbie and his younger sister Alesha, though memories of a recent visit to their Grandpa John s fill the night with ambient eeriness Grandpa John had spun a frightening yarn about a dread folk disease called Full Moon Fever, caught by staring too long at the silvery full moon Tempted to test Grandpa John s story and repudiate the existence of Full Moon Fever on this Halloween night, Robbie and Alesha are immediately wracked with agony as they gaze at the moon, and awaken morning next to find themselves catastrophically changed The siblings have morphed into wolflike creatures with little control over their tempers, possessed of deadly strength Their own mother doesn t recognize them when they go to her for help, trying to speak comprehensible words through their lolling wolf tongues and clumsy snouts Their only hope is to run to Grandpa John s house and hide with him before the police capture them, but even if they re successful, what chance do two terrified werewolf kids have of reversing a curse that has reportedly never been undone Do they have a prayer of making it to the next full moon to see if Grandpa John s story was accurate, if by standing under the moon s pale glow they can return to human form Full Moon Fever moves at a good clip and goes places I didn t think a Goosebumps book would R.L Stine briefly lingers on some sobering thoughts that give the storygravitas than most of his middle grade fare, even allowing a few moments for deeper contemplation of the distressing scenario in which Robbie and Alesha are trapped What are you to do when the world views you as a monster, unable to look past the danger it assumes you pose and recognize your human soul What of the internal battle against your own monstrous traits, instinct driving you to hurt people you care about, to destroy them If you can t resist your harmful impulses, are you truly as monstrous as others say This struggle is at its most poignant in Full Moon Fever when Robbie holds his dog Scruffy, the little animal overjoyed to see him despite his monstrous exterior Scruffy doesn t mind that Robbie and Alesha are ugly and hairy, he just recognizes them as his people and is glad to have them home But that morsel of live meat in his hands triggers Robbie s voracious werewolf hunger, and he fears he can t control his appetite Would he kill the one creature left in the world who sees him as human It s an unexpectedly emotional moment for a Goosebumps book, and R.L Stine manages it well But whether or not Robbie overcomes his baser instincts, all may not end happily for him and his sister At the very least, I rate Full Moon Fever two and a half stars I m tempted to round that up to three, but I m not totally convinced Either way, tally my rating as right on the verge, and consider it rounded up if you believe my review makes the case This is one of R.L Stine s better offerings, near the level of Be Careful What You Wish For or Deep Trouble, and I recommend it for Goosebumps fans who want a taste of something different Like several other Series 2000 entries, Full Moon Fever certainly delivers that If you prefer your horror stories with a tinge of introspection, you re unlikely to go wrong with this one

    Eigentlich eine interessante Geschichte ber das Vollmondfieber, die Aufl sung des ganzen war jedoch nicht sehr zufrieden stellend Au erdem fand ich die Protagonisten und vorallem ihren Gro vater nicht so sympathisch.

    Really enjoying re reading the Goosbumps series Catching up on this story, I can t help but imagine the song By the light of the Silvery Moon playing in the background off a scratchy old vinyl record A scary story that turns out to be real is a kids worst nightmare and that s exactly what happens in this Stine tale Especially love the twist at the end on who the protagonist really is although the premise could have been avoided if the kids understood they had dyslexia nuff said

    PLOT On Halloween night, two friends named Robbie and Alesha, go trick or treating around town They reluctantly go to the home of one of their nastiest teachers, Mrs Eakins When they arrive at her home, however, they are surprised to find that the usually mean Mrs Eakins is being so friendly Mrs Eakins generously gives them both full size candy bars which the two gobble up on the way back The next morning, Robbie discovers that he is completely coated in thick hair, just like a werewolf PLOT On Halloween night, two friends named Robbie and Alesha, go trick or treating around town They reluctantly go to the home of one of their nastiest teachers, Mrs Eakins When they arrive at her home, however, they are surprised to find that the usually mean Mrs Eakins is being so friendly Mrs Eakins generously gives them both full size candy bars which the two gobble up on the way back The next morning, Robbie discovers that he is completely coated in thick hair, just like a werewolf Robbie can t talk and finds that he is hungry all the time, frighteningly enough, for living animals Robbie finds Alesha and the two flee into the woods nearby, away from the police who are persuing them They worry that they have succumbed to a mythical illness called Full Moon Fever, which turns anyone who looks at the full moon into ravenous, snarling beasts Robbie and Alesha go to find Robbie s grandfather, who told them about the disease the night before, only to discover that it is merely an old legend and that it isn t real The two go on a journey through the woods to find a cure only to be captured by a circus ringleader who turns them into circus freaks They escape the circus and then deduce that it must be the fault of Mrs Eakins They go to her house and discover that the large candy bars she gave to them were actually cursed, and that she is a witch They eat many Cure Bars , which were lying around the house and hope that they will cure them However, Robbie takes another look at the label and discovers that they actually say Curse Bar , meaning that they have just likely permenantly cursed themselves.INFO Cover artist Tim JacobusPublisher ScholasticMedia type Print Paperback Release date October 1999Pages 121Series Goosebumps Series 2000Series number 22Chapters 28Target audience 7 13 yearsPrevious book The Haunted CarNext book Slappy s NightmareMy opinions this goosebumps has got to be one of the worst I have ever read The cover Looks amazing but unfortunately the plot lets it down Stein must of written this book in less than a week as there are many contradictions and poor quality cliff hangers The twist in the end was no surprise as I suspected it to be the chocolate bars as the involvement of mrs Eakins would of been pointless The story goes of on a unrealistic tangent and the story is set over a few days In that few days they get the fever, fly off somewhere to find a cure, get captured by an evil doctor, paraded in the circus and fly back and destroy the old lady s house which is far to much for a 112 page novel The plot was good but could of been a lot better if the story followed a different route I would rate this book 3 10 as the story was pointless and I wouldn t recommend it as it s a waste of time

    One of my first few books I remember reading it while i was in seventh grade This book kept me enchanted in all aspects I could have hoped for And the ending blew my mind I was but a kid Anyone who is looking to read books and has never read one, can pick this book up and be amazed This book really is page turner.
