ABOUT THIS BOOK

Master horror writer and Goosebumps series author, R.L. Stine, delivers another spooky tale!

Inkweed, the evil “Ghost of the Black Sleep,” has inhabited Max, hoping for the moment when Max falls asleep— that’s when he can bring his crushing, evil powers to life.

Nicky and Tara work frantically to keep Max awake. But they’re running out of ideas and after a few days of no sleep, Max is desperate. He’s going crazy! But if he closes his eyes, it will mean the end of them all!

Can Nicky and Tara keep Max awake long enough to banish Inkweed?

Don’t close your eyes, Max!
