Jaclyn can't believe she's stuck out in Nowheresville. No movie theaters. No malls. No nothing.
Plus, there's something really odd about the village. At night there are strange howling noises. And in front of every house there's a snowman. A creppy snowman with a red scarf. I was a little bored before bed, so I picked up this book for a little scare. I didn't know how "little" that scare would be. Jaclyn DeForest tries to find out what the creepy nightly howling noises are in her new village of Sherpia.
The townsfolk are all terrified of the "snowman" who l "Beware, the Snowman" was full of terrible suspense and awful writing. The townsfolk are all terrified of the "snowman" who lives in an ice cave on the top of the mountain. Everyone warns her not to go to the top of the mountain, but she does anyway. The gigantic snowman emerges, and asks Jaclyn who she is.
Give me a break! The snowman says that Jaclyn's mother trapped him inside a snowman's body because she was a sorceress and didn't want him to know his daughter. Jaclyn believes him, and then reads off a spell that releases him from the curse. Of course, it really turns out to be a monster intent on destroying the world. Just as Jaclyn's about to die, her real sorcerer dad turns up and saves the day with an army of little snowmen! They push the monster back into his ice cave for good, saving little Sherpia from an icy doom.
Cheesy suspense, awful topic. Really, a deadly snowman who terrorizes a little village in the Arctic Circle? Who claims to be a little girl's father? And who wants to destroy the world? A dictionary would have scared me more! I like the Goosebumps books because they're unusual and scary. But I just have to say: R. Stine, "Beware, the Snowman" was the worst book in the series.
Possibly the world. I expected better from you. View all 4 comments. A book that started scary and became increasingly unbelievable and stupid. I had to give it two stars instead of just one for the tension and suspense that Stine created expertly in the first half of the book. But I was waiting for him to take it to a very scary and clever climax and that just didn't happen.
Instead he warped a good story and made it into a joke. He should have carried on down the path of horror, instead of rationalising a story about a snowman that comes alive to terrorize peop A book that started scary and became increasingly unbelievable and stupid. He should have carried on down the path of horror, instead of rationalising a story about a snowman that comes alive to terrorize people. A quick read, to say the least. Cute book and surprisingly unpredictable.
Clever enough short story although extremely cheesy - should we be surprised of that though, considering the cover, the plot, that it's Goosebumps, and the tagline? Sep 22, M. Aneal rated it it was ok. This book was okay. It was very magical and strange in many ways. It's one of my least favorite of Goosebumps. It was interesting but the weird magical parts made it very disappointing.

Another good goosebumps book. Oct 24, Abbie rated it really liked it Shelves: kids-reads , horror. I'm glad it doesn't snow where I live. Currently rereading my original Goosebumps collection I'm torn on this Beware, the Snowman. The writing style is more mature than most of the other books in the series, with stronger descriptive words and metaphors galore. I also felt this one is one of the more darker Goosebumps. Early on in the first chapter the death of a family member is mentioned, which I think is a first for the series.
Also, the way the snowmen are described is terrifying. Especially for younger readers key moment is whe Currently rereading my original Goosebumps collection I'm torn on this Beware, the Snowman. Especially for younger readers key moment is when it's revealed what the evil snowman really is. What brings this book down for me is that not much happens until the climatic ending.
A lot of it seems like filler. But apart from that it's an entertaining read.

I read this book to get into the winter season a little more. It barely snows where I live, so the surplus of snow within the book was really nice. This is a very quick read, perfect for a wintertime snack. While not the best Goosebumps book, it is entertaining, even though it takes forever to figure out what is happening with the snowman. For a short book, it moves a little snow, but who doesn't enjoy the idea of a creepy snowman?
I thought it was a creative idea and even thouh the execution of I read this book to get into the winter season a little more.
I thought it was a creative idea and even thouh the execution of it wasn't stellar, it was still enjoyable. Its best in the wintertime, as it would probably feel awkward or extra peculiar at any other time of the year. Aug 07, Tracey rated it liked it Shelves: sf-fantasy , children-books.
Young Adult Revisited: Goosebumps # Beware, the Snowman
There was nothing really bad or good about this book. It was just in the middle for me. I did laugh at the last line in the book though. Why is a snowman complaining about being cold lol. May 18, Rosalind Seese rated it it was ok. Totally lame that I am adding this to my goodreads but I read it to my son yesterday and I do have my goodreads challenge GO ME! Jan 28, Luke F rated it it was amazing. I recently read the book Goosebumps: Beware the Snowman by R. I thought this book was very good because it kept me guessing and it was very suspenseful. It kept me guessing because when Jacklyn told her friends Rolonda and Jack that she was going to go up the mountain they told her not to do it.
They begged her not to go and she asked why but they wouldn't tell her. It's suspenseful because when she decides to climb the mountain and finds the snowman I wasn't sure what would happen.

Beware, The Snowman
Like how everything in Shirpia is covered in snow. Also how every house in the neighborhood has a snowman in the front yard with a deep cut on the right side of its face. I would give this book 5 stars and would recommend this book to everyone. Jun 04, Dharia Scarab rated it liked it. My love of reading started when i was young, and it gives me immense pleasure to provide books to Spread the Word Nevada, an organization that passes them on to children in the community.
They are a terrific organization supporting an important cause. If your local I encourage you to check them out. For those living further a field, look in your own community, their may already be a similar program in place. And if not, you can always help start one.
