The Terror Behind the Mask

For Ages: 8 - 12
Jasmine is forced to face her darkest fears in this Creepover tale that’s as scary as they come.

Jasmine Porter has always let her fear of the dark get the better of her: she even checks every nook and cranny of her room each night for monsters before she hides under the covers! But Jasmine’s imagination kicks into overdrive when her dad brings home a creepy mask—a mask that looks eerily like the face of the boogeyman haunting Jasmine’s dreams. Though her dad insists the mask is supposed to protect their home from evil spirits, Jasmine won’t rest easy until the mask is gone. But Jasmine soon finds out that the mask may be harder to get rid of than she thought…

This nightmare in disguise is rated a Level 5 on the Creep-o-Meter.

About the Author

P.J. Night

A lifelong night owl, P.J. Night often works furiously into the wee hours of the morning, writing down spooky tales and dreaming up new stories of the supernatural and otherworldly. Although P.J.’s whereabouts are unknown at this time, we suspect the author lives in a drafty, old mansion where the floorboards creak when no one is there and the flickering candlelight creates shadows that creep along the walls. We truly wish we could tell you more, but we’ve been sworn to keep P.J.’s identity a secret…and it’s a secret we will take to our graves!
