But you don’t think the camera Greg said yes it was the camera. We have to destroy the camera so they destroyed the camera but does Shari come back and does the car get fixed.

Character Analysis Kris is a girl that is part of this novel “Goosebumps NIGHT OF THE LIVING DUMMY”. she shows many interesting qualities such as Original, she also shows she can be very jealous like how she jealous of her sister and some people would even refer her to a green eyed monster, also she can be very creative like in how to defeat the dummy Mr. Wood, also how she is always determined like how she will always try and be better than her twin sister Lindy I will show you how Kris is these 4 qualities. Kris is Original because in her ventriloquist act she only uses her own jokes not any jokes that have already used. Like hers one “Kris was practicing and she tells Mr. Wood that he doesn’t have a good sense of humor then he says I have to because I put up with you” that’s one quality that Kris has.Another quality Kris has is she is very jealous of her twin sister Lindy because Lindy got a Dummy named Slappy and she was becoming very popular and she begged her parents for a dummy eventually she got one. Also her role in the text is the smaller more jealous twin sister. That’s another quality Kris has.Kris is also very creative like in the book she found many different ways to kill Mr. Wood like she tried to cut his head off with scissors then it didn’t work so then she tried to saw off his head with the scissors then tried to bury him then she threw him under a steam roller but all very creative ideas also she is very creative at school she finds strange ways to find the answer. Kris is also very determined in how she always tries to be better than Lindy at being a ventriloquist being more popular

Letter to authorHi Mr. Stine I would love to talk about you and your books (“Say cheese and die” and “Night of the living dummy”). First off you’re one of the people I look up to, you’re very smart and you’re successful. You have an amazing sense of humor I can tell by the way you write you’re book. The book “Say cheese and die” is funny, but it has a dark plot twist, what inspired you to write that book? Also what was your favorite book to write? I love how you can feel like you’re in the book with them like for example in “Night of the living dummy” you said that Mr. Wood had dirt smudges on his face and that character was so well described I felt like I could see him in my head. Also how is it to have your book that was published into a television show?Also I love how you can make a book that’s funny and has horror in it and drama it’s like a sub-genre to the sub-genre.Mr. Stine you have taught me a lot I very much appreciate that you have inspired me to try harder you proved that you can do anything. Sincerely, your's truly Justin
