R.L Stine’s massive book series focused on children’s horror, leaving shivers in the spines of many young kids and leaving others spineless. Some books were odd; most of them were spooky.

However, some notable mentions in the series seemed far more wonky than anything. Here are some books that will have you scratching at your scalp, or maybe, your skull.

 

1. It Came From Beneath the Sink!

It’s alive. It’s pulsing. It’s cursed… It’s a sponge.

How bad can it be right?

Well apparently, it’s very bad. This sponge can make you break, bleed and squeeze your happiness away. How? Read it to find out! Just wash your dishes first.
