NYC – Young Scrooge Signing

000_bow-rlstine

Join us on Saturday, December 3rd at 1:00 PM for an afternoon full of delightfully frightful tales with the master of goosebumps himself, the inimitable R.L. STINE! Your young readers will enjoy every thrilling moment, as R.L. STINE presents his newest book, Young Scrooge: A Very Scary Christmas Story.

Rick Scroogeman hates Christmas. He can’t stand the carols and the pageants. He can’t stand the lights and the mistletoe. But what he hates the most is having to watch the old movie A Christmas Carol every year at school. Since his name is Scroogeman, all of his classmates start calling him Scrooge. And he hates being called Scrooge.

But everything starts to change when three ghosts visit him. At first, he thinks it’s a dream. But then he realizes that it might be a nightmare. A nightmare that could become real.

As the girls explore their new home, a neighbor lets them in on a secret: There are ghosts in Bahía de la Luna. Maya is determined to meet one, but Cat wants nothing to do with them. As the time of year when ghosts reunite with their loved ones approaches, Cat must figure out how to put aside her fears for her sister’s sake — and her own.
