Charlie Laird has a very bad feeling...

1. There’s a NEW GIRL at school, and Charlie and his friends have DEFINITELY seen her before.
2. He’s been hearing strange noises after dark, which is NEVER a good sign.
3. The nightmares are back, and they’re WEIRDER THAN EVER.

Not since he faced his fears has Charlie had so many bad dreams. Whenever he falls asleep, he finds himself in a Netherworld field, surrounded by a flock of CREEPY BLACK SHEEP.
They're not counting sheep. They refuse to jump. In fact, they don't do much at all. EVEN EERIER, THOUGH, is that it’s not Charlie’s nightmare. Somehow he’s trapped in someone else’s bad dream. And he’s pretty sure the twins ICK and INK are responsible.
Charlie and his friends thought they’d put the twins out of business, but it seems they didn’t quite finish the job. Now the WOOLLY NIGHTMARES are closing in, and INK has shown up at Cypress Creek Elementary! Charlie’s convinced that INK is up to NO GOOD. And if he’s right, it could be a very long time before anyone’s dreams are sweet again...
"He'd only just finished when Charlotte appeared in the kitchen and gave Charlie's father a kiss. "Charlie's annoyed with me."
Charlie crossed his arms and raised an eyebrow at his stepmother."--The Lost Lullaby by Jason Segel & Kristen Miller, illustrated by Karl Kwasny
Comments: I basically binge read the rest of this series. And oh man, The Lost Lullaby was such a good book.

  7. The character sounds familiar. I think I've read a book from this series. If not, I should! I love these children's adventure stories.

  8. Is it a graphic novel or illustrated prose? I couldn't tell, but it sounds like something my students might be interested in. Great excerpts. Happy reading!

    1. The Lost Lullaby isn't a graphic novel. It just has illustrations; although, I think it would make a great graphic novel series. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend!

  9. I've heard SUCH great things about this series, I really should pick them up myself in the future--I always think about it, but keep putting it off for some reason (oh wait, I know the reason--so many other books to read already!) Thank you so much for sharing with us!

    Happy book-ing to you in the near future! Here's my Friday 56 if you're interested in checking it out; no pressure or worries if you're not, though! Stay rockin', and happy Friday!
