If you are looking for a scary read or two before Halloween, then look no further. Kidzworld has book reviews of both Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and The Phantom of the Opera for your horror needs. Muhahahaha!

Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde

Author: Robert Louis Stevenson
Adapted By: Kate McMullan


Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde is the tale of a charitable doctor who has been working on a top-secret experiment for years. Dr. Jekyll has always believed that a person is actually a composition of two entirely separate people (the person who is good and kind and the person who is mean and evil), and he's determined to prove it. After years of toiling, Dr. Jekyll finally concocts a drug that is able to separate the two people within him - Dr. Jekyll and his alter ego, the evil Mr. Hyde.


The story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde has been altered and shortened to make it an easier read, but all the great scary elements are still a part of this great spooky classic. If you've never heard the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde story, or are looking for something a bit scary to sink your teeth into, then definitely grab a copy of this book.

The Phantom of the Opera

Author: Gaston Leroux
Adapted By: Kate McMullan


The Phantom of the Opera follows the story of Eric, a young boy who was born looking more like a skeleton than an actual boy. When he receives nothing but abuse and hatred from his parents, young Eric decides to run away, quickly finding himself part of a freak show in a local fair.

From there, Eric learns to use his freakiness to his advantage. You follow him from freak show to freak show and he just gets scarier and scarier. You don't have to have seen the Broadway show to enjoy the Phantom of the Opera book. The story is fast-paced and scary all the way through. You might want to keep a flashlight by your bed after this one though, cuz it'll have you looking for the Phantom in your closet before you crawl into bed at night!

    Wow... Boy have I grown. To anybody reading this, whether you a be a past friend or current user, I really hope you're well. I've changed a lot since I've been here. Since I've left. I want you guys, my old friends (should you be reading this), to know a few things. No, I probably won't be back. Not for a very very long time. Yes, I miss you all. So very much. As said, I truely hope you're all still well and happy. And I want you to know I'm happy too. After I left this site, I really found myself, as cheesy as it may sound. But I'm happier now. Not completely happy, but I'm happier. And now, something that everyone could hear. Something that everyone should hear. I hope you all have a great life, for life is a gift we are given so very little of. Use it as you will, but be wise with it. Let nobody else deprive you because of the color of your skin, the thoughts on your mind, or the love in your heart. You're all so very beautiful and smart, in you're own grand way. You deserve this gift you've been given. Each and everyone of you. If you ever think that no one seems to care, always remember that even if you don't know me and I don't know you, I care. I care so very very much. I'll see you another time KW. My stay has been the most grand. Thank you all so much.
