    #33 "Tennis... Ping-pong... Monsters, anyone?" "Only the best" the sign reads under King Jellyjam. Wendy's brother Elliot is very competitive and a total sports nut. She however, is not so into sports. So when they go to Camp Jellyjam, the sports camp, Wendy feels it's kind of a downer. But she's about to find out that things are not all that they seen at this camp.

    "And what about Mom and Dad?" I demanded. "They couldn't have driven very far before they realized the trailer had come loose. Why haven't they found us? Why hasn't the camp found them?" Elliot shrugged. "Beats me," he replied casually. He dodged past me and started to the door. "Wendy, you're just unhappy because you stink at sports. But I'm having a great time here. Don't mess it up for me - okay?" R.L. Stine must have been on some serious substances in 1995 because this book is flippin' insane. "And what about Mom and Dad?" I demanded.

Stine must have been on some serious substances in 1995 because this book is flippin' insane. The ending is so bizarre and so weird and so disturbing I am unsure whether there is a kid in existence who could take this seriously. The book starts out shakily. Wendy (12) and her brother Elliot (11) are on a road trip with their parents. They go into the trailer their parents are hauling behind their car to play. The trailer gets separated from the car and the kids roll downhill only to open the door and find themselves in the middle of a sports camp called King Jellyjam's. o.O A camp counselor with the dubious name of "Buddy" offers to let them stay at camp. The kids go off with a strange man named Buddy, into the woods. o.O The camp is loaded with kids and huge sports complexes. Everyone is very competitive and serious about winning. Every time you win at a sport, you are awarded with a gold coin with the image of a purple blob - King Jellyjam - stamped into it. If you get six coins you get to walk the Winners' Walk, which is a huge honor. Wendy and Elliot - seemingly unperturbed that they are separated from their likely frantic parents - start entering swim races and ping-pong tournaments. The highly competitive Elliot thinks he's in heaven. After a few competitions, Wendy finally remembers she has a set of parents and gets the bright idea to call home. She has to find a pay phone because, hey, this is 1995. However - get this - she gets distracted from calling her parents after locating said payphone by her dorm-mates and forgets to call home. The mind boggles. When she finally picks up the thread again, 8 chapters later, she realizes the phones are rigged so that no one can make outgoing calls. Okay, that was scary, I have to admit. Wendy, who is not as athletically-inclined as her brother, has noticed some strange(r) things about camp. Like the small earthquakes that happen multiple times a day. And the fact that everyone who has walked the Winners' Walk has mysteriously vanished, never to be seen again. And she sees the counselors hurrying to some unknown meeting place late at night when all the campers are in bed. Okay, here is what's going on: (view spoiler)[A giant purple blob with a gold crown on its head is living underground. Is it a demon? An alien? Unknown. The children who have won six competitions - the "Winners" - have the dubious honor of scrubbing the purple blob, who stinks really, really badly. It hates its own stench, apparently, and forces the "strongest kids" who have proven themselves by winning at sports (!?!?!!?) to scrub him day and night. The exhausted overworked children are being held prisoner and forced to do slave labor underground. The counselors are hypnotized (?) to worship the giant purple thing. Unknown as to how the purple thing did this. Unknown as to why he can't hypnotize the children. Also, he sweats snails. Yes, snails are popping out of his body at a rapid rate. Apparently snails' origins are the underground secretions of a giant purple monster. o.O Where is the camp getting these children? Wouldn't people notice tons of missing kids? Who is funding the amazing sports arenas at the camp and the tons of food consumed by the children and counselors? Never mind. Things get even weirder. Do you know how the beast dies?!?! Do you!?!?! Wendy tells everyone to lie flat on the floor. The fat blobby thing is unable to pick them up with its chubby fingers and once it stops being constantly washed it suffocates to death on its own stench. Yes. You read that right. o.O This book has WTF? written all over it. I can't believe anyone would believe children would want to read this garbage. It's fucking insulting to children's intelligence. (hide spoiler)] OKAY. Is that not the CRAZIEST shit you've ever heard in your life? I thought so. Tl;dr - I have to give this one star. I know for a fact that Stine is capable of much better than this. "Bizarre" and "lame" doesn't even BEGIN to cover the craziness that is this book. Definitely skip this one, it's not worth it. Beyond weird.

    I am never really a fan of summer camp books and most importantly I don't dig stories with kids disobeying their parents. Well I guess that's the moral of the story...DO NOT DISOBEY YOUR PARENTS.

    For some odd reason I really like the camp books. Here you have wo kids who get detached from their parents (literally)The end up at a fun little sports camp. Right away I knew it was fiction when all the kids obeyed the camp rules! Anyways It was written in female first person and was done well. I was entertained from the start to the end.

Descriptions can kind of ruin the book, a spoiler if you will or a teaser. I don't want surprises. I like to read as I go along and enjoy every surprise. Anywho, the book was enjoyable. I would not recommend it for children even though it is a childrens book, because of the grossness near the end and because they probably would never want to go to a sports camp, but I like the idea, i think it would be a really fun thing to do..

    Ahhh, the Goosebump days. I would borrow so many of these from the library they seriously considered extending my limit of books checked out at one time. R.L. Stine you were a reprieve from a harsh and dreary childhood in which my mind wandered far away from the troubles of the day. I stole books into my bed and read far into the night by the faintest of lights. I might have better eyesight were it not for you; however, I regret not one page or line.

    Κάπως αφελές για τα δικά μου γούστα, αν και λόγω κατασκήνωσης κερδίζει κάποιους πόντους, αφού με ταξιδεύει σε ωραίες, περασμένες εποχές, όπου σε κάποια κατασκήνωση διηγούμασταν τρομακτικές ιστορίες που τρέμαμε μην τυχόν και βγουν αληθινές. Οπότε, εγκεφαλικά και μόνο, νομίζω πως πετυχαίνει σε μεγάλο βαθμό το σκοπό της, που δεν είναι άλλος από το να μας τσιτώσει τα νεύρα.

King Jellyjam turns out to be this big blob of a monster that kind of resembles Jabba The Hut and eats kids if they don't keep bathing him with water and soap then he eventually suffocates to his own body odor when the kids stop bathing him. Yeah, that's a spoiler, but that's why I have hid this review. I don't normally give away spoilers unless I really didn't like the particular book or novella. Sorry....start the fire. I mean, I thought the characters were good, but the jabba the hut guy kinda ruined it for me, personally. R.L. Stine still did a really good job on most of the Goosebumps series, but this one just seemed to be too...out there.

    We start this instalment with what feels like a remake of the earlier Horrorland story. Kids in the back of a car bored, parents driving them somewhere. Wendy and Elliot are 12 and 11, and their parents are driving them around the country in their car and sleeping in an "old fashioned" camper trailer, you know as opposed to those new fangled ones I guess.

Wendy and Elliot are 12 and 11, and their parents are driving them around the country in their car and sleeping in an "old fashioned" camper trailer, you know as opposed to those new fangled ones I guess. The kids are so bored, they ask if they can ride in the camper while they're driving down the highway. Dad of the year decides this is a safe idea, and so the kids jump into the trailer so they can get rid of those pesky seatbelts and be at the mercy of physics when there's an accident. Sure enough, the trailer comes unhitched and the kids go crashing through the woods and wind up being rescued by a creepy guy named Buddy. He calls everyone guy, which means he's either a South Park Canadian or Cal from Undergrads (there's a deep reference). Apparently Buddy is a counsellor at Camp Jellyjam, a nearby sports camp for kids. He promises the kids he'll find their parents, and in the meantime they should just enrol in the camp free of charge. Nothing weird here. Wendy spots a young red haired girl (finally) who warns them to leave the camp. Of course she disappears and the siblings continue on to their new dorm rooms. The theme of Camp Jellyjam is "Only the Best", which is a slogan that will be repeated about eighteen thousand times throughout the book. Apparently you have to play sports, and if you don't try hard you'll be in big trouble. Also you win gold coins with a purple blob on them (the titular King) and if you get 6 then you'll have the privilege of marching in the "Winner's Walk". There I think I've covered basically the whole plot in about 3 lines. Anyway, Wendy loses a swimming race, then gets scolded for not trying hard enough. She finds her brother who plays the awesome prank of lying down on the ground, making Wendy think he's unconscious. Apparently she falls for this crafty maneuver frequently. Her competitive brother is loving the camp with all of its games, and wants to win coins upon coins. After he wins a ping pong game, there's a big earthquake which phases nobody except Wendy. Turns out they just have daily earthquakes at Camp Jellyjam, nothing to fear. Wendy's roommate Dierdre wins her 6th coin and gets to be in the Winner's Walk. While staying up late waiting for her to return at night, Wendy and her friends are super convinced that ol' Dierdre is out partying. Seriously these 12 year olds talk like she's doing keg stands in the woods or something. The girls go out to find her and some scary bats happen and yada yada they find the lil' red haired girl who tells them she's seen something evil and scary and then she disappears again. When the group return to their dorm they discover that Dierdre's belongings are all gone. When Wendy asks a counsellor the next day, he simply says "She gone". Wendy is starting to think this weird free sports camp isn't all it's cracked up to be, and tries to call home. Naturally all of the payphones are fake. Buddy appears again and forces her to play a bunch more sports. She plays tennis against an "African-American" girl which might be the first black person in GB history. She loses again and later that night more winners disappear. Finally, Wendy decides to investigate these evil shenanigans, and follows a bunch of the counsellors into the woods one night. They enter a large building where Buddy takes a coin out of his pants and hypnotizes them all. No kidding. Then, Wendy runs down a staircase where she discovers a huge chamber with a giant purple slime monster named (you guessed it) Grimace. Turns out King Jellyjam is real af, and he needs an army of slave children to wash him down 24/7 so he doesn't drown in his own stank. This is all helpfully explained by Dierdre who says only the best, strongest kids get slave duty. If you slack off the King eats you. Wendy escapes and tries to stop her brother from winning his final coin, and thus becoming a slave (is it me or does RL Stine really has a hang up on child slavery?). She drags him down into the monster's lair, and suddenly comes up with a grand plan to save them all. She tells everyone to lie on the floor. That's it. That's the plan. Wendy is an expert on giant blob monsters, and knew that he would be unable to pick them up with his big blob hands. Without his body washing child slaves, the blob suffocates on his own stench and dies. When the kids emerge back above ground, the counsellors are prepared to attack them until we get a Monty Python ending where the police show up because they could smell the blob back in town. The hypnosis is broken by their whistles, and the kids return home safe and sound. Except, weeks later Buddy appears on Wendy's doorstep to give Elliot his 6th golden coin. The kids then smell something horrible, but don't worry it's just brussels sprouts lol. Sounds like mom doesn't know how to properly cook. The end. Thoughts: This one is just mostly boring. If you like pre-teens playing sports with the intensity of olympic calibre athletes you might enjoy it. It features a lot of good life lessons for kids, which include don't become loose cargo in a moving trailer, don't live at any summer camp that just lets you in for free, and trying hard only leads to enslavement and possibly death.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I found this book to be cute, It just seemed like there was so much buildup. You have Elliot and Wendy who are on a road trip with their parents. they are taking a nap in the trailer when it becomes unhitched and starts to travel backwards down a hill. They are stopped and are taken to a sports camp by one of the camp counselor, Buddy. At first they think that this is cool because they get to have fun and play games with other children which is more than what they were doing with their parents o I found this book to be cute, It just seemed like there was so much buildup.

Buddy promises them that they will find their mom and dad and be out of there shortly but in the mean time they should have fun and try to win at some games. First weird thing is, all of the games are competitions that people are trying to win Kings coins, apparently the goal is to get 6 of them. Second weird thing is after winning a few times you begin to lose your memory. Third weird thing, the phones don't actually work fourth weird thing, once you win 6 coins you disappear fifth weird... Shall I continue... There was just red flag after red flag in this book and it seemed like Wendy never bothered to follow up on any of them even though she saw them. So at the end of the book, all of those that won 6 coins became slaves for king Jellyjam who was some weird monster that was under the ground.. It wasn't until they were able to defeat him did they reunite with their parents.

    A super competitive sports camp that harbours a deep secret is such a cool concept. This one really stuck with me as a kid, it might be due to the fact that I would have been one of the campers who would desperately try and win the Six King Coins to enter ‘Winners Wak’ too! Throughout the park there’s plenty of signs that read ‘Only The Best’ seems harmless enough but has such a deeper sinister meaning. This book even has a dark twist ending, which helps make it standout!

    Who was your favorite character? Elliot is my favorite character because he's funny. What did you think was the scariest part? I think the scariest part was when Wendy was about to get eaten by kingjelly jam. What was your favorite scene? My favorite scene is when all the counselors are hypnotized because they chase kids that have six king coins. What did you not like about the book? I don't like the slavery in the book.

This book follows a girl and her younger brother on vacation. They're bored. They don't want to be in the car for hours at a time (hey, that's how we took vacations. Maybe I could just really relate to this part), and eventually their parents give in to their whining and let them ride in the camper attached to the back of the car. Er, bad idea. Long story short, the camper becomes unattached and the kids end up at Camp Jellyjam, a super athletic camp for "only the best." Except this is a Goosebumps book, which means creepy stuff's going on. I really enjoyed this as an adult, too. I don't know what it is about this one still, it's just a lot of fun to read. I love the dynamics and I love how everything's set up and just - I love it. I just really love this book. I like the characters, even if whilst reading these books, I've realized that the a lot of the protagonists sound the same, except the one from the Book That Must Not Be Named In This Review (but I just realized that one's in third person and most of them are not, so that could be why), but it's a kid's book, so I'm letting it slide.

If I remember correctly, I read these books when I was in the 4-7 age range, which may explain my lack of a bullshit detector. I'll still probably re-read another Goosebumps. There was one about someone tragically and slowly transforming into a chicken that contributed majorly to the formation of my philosophy of life; I hope I'm not disappointed.

He is an outgoing, careless boy and he always forgets his parents. Sometimes it makes her to feel better, but because of his personality, it causes some troubles.

    This is the first Goosebumps I read in over 10 years, and I am reminded of how one-dimensional the characters and how cringe-worthy the dialogues are. Wendy and Elliot talk their parents into letting them ride in the trailer during a ride to camp, and somehow the trailer becomes unhitched. They roll down a hill and land by Camp Jellyjam where instead of being panicked and checking for injuries or trauma and making sure to contact their parents and the authorities, the kids immediately join sports This is the first Goosebumps I read in over 10 years, and I am reminded of how one-dimensional the characters and how cringe-worthy the dialogues are.

Whut. If the vehicle I rode in fell into a ditch, the last thing I would want to do is go for a leisurely dip in a pool. And the destruction of the King Jellyjam was an anticlimactic letdown. I read so fast that I had to backtrack and make sure that that was it.

    One of the more unsettling books by R.L. Stine. The actual horror is less than the pervasive sense of unease that still sticks with me years afterward. I read it so many times the binding started falling off.

    This was a favorite when I was a kid. I was super excited to re-read this as an adult. I probably shouldn’t have done it. It was a fun read but it just wasn’t the same as when I was a kid. That is why I’m only giving it three stars.

    Wendy and her younger brother Elliot are on a road trip with their parents, which Elliot and Wendy hates because they wanted to go to summer camp. The Wyoming countryside does very little to excite the two kids, so Wendy suggests that maybe she and Elliot could ride in the trailer hitched behind their car. Once inside the trailer, the two kids merrily pass the time as the trailer accelerates down the highway. When the ride gets a little bumpy, the kids assume their mother is driving, but the tra Wendy and her younger brother Elliot are on a road trip with their parents, which Elliot and Wendy hates because they wanted to go to summer camp. The Wyoming countryside does very little to excite the two kids, so Wendy suggests that maybe she and Elliot could ride in the trailer hitched behind their car. Once inside the trailer, the two kids merrily pass the time as the trailer accelerates down the highway. When the ride gets a little bumpy, the kids assume their mother is driving, but the trailer hitch soon breaks, sending the two kids off the road and tumbling down a hill and crashes (despite this, Wendy and Elliot do not suffer any injuries). Wendy opens the trailer door when she hears someone knocking, assuming her parents are on the other side. Instead, it's a blond man dressed in white. The man introduces himself as Buddy, one of the counselors of a sports camp called King Jellyjam's Sports Camp. Elliot is excited that he finally gets to go to camp, but Wendy is more concerned about contacting her parents. Buddy lets Elliot and Wendy stay until they can make contact with the authorities. While Elliot makes himself at home, competing with the campers for King Coins (six of which earns campers the right to participate in a ceremony called The Winners' Walk), Wendy is lectured by her counselor, Holly, for not living by the camp slogan, "Only The Best." Things get weirder when one of Wendy's camp buddies, Diedre, participates in the Winners' Walk after winning her sixth King Coin, and doesn't come back. Wendy and her two other camp buddies, Ivy and Jan, break curfew to look for their friend. A little girl named Alicia (who appeared earlier in the story to warn Wendy away from the camp) appears again to warn Wendy, Ivy, and Jan about the camp. The three run back to their dorms and find Deidre's belongings missing. The next day, Wendy confronts Buddy about Deidre's disappearance and Alicia's warnings. Buddy tells Wendy that Deidre left the camp on her own accord and that King Jellyjam's Sports Camp has never had a girl named Alicia. Wendy tries to call her parents, but the pay phones are disconnected. Buddy approaches Wendy (after spying on her attempts at calling home) and gives her an itinerary of sports she must complete before the end of the day.

    The book that I read today was about a brother and sister named Wendy and Elliot. One day, their parents and them where going on a road trip for vacation. Elliot gets bored in the car, so he asks his dad if Wendy and himself can go in the trailer that the car pulls. Their mom thought it was dangerous, but their dad let them go anyway. As they where in the trailer, the car went up a steep hill and the trailer got loose. The trailer went down the hill until it came to a sudden stop.

Elliot gets bored in the car, so he asks his dad if Wendy and himself can go in the trailer that the car pulls. Their mom thought it was dangerous, but their dad let them go anyway. As they where in the trailer, the car went up a steep hill and the trailer got loose. The trailer went down the hill until it came to a sudden stop. A strange smiling man opened the trailer door. The man was a counselor, that was named buddy, at a camp and told the two siblings to come to the camp. Wendy thought it was a bad idea, but she didn't want to abandon he little brother that went with the strange man, so she went anyway. The camp was called, camp jellyjam and for some reason, everyone was smiling. As time passed, things started getting weirder and weirder. First, when Wendy was playing baseball, she accidentally hit buddy in the ribs with the base ball bat. As the bat hit his ribs, it made a CRACK sound. The strange thing was, he didn't even react to the hit. Second, the ground started to shake twice a day. Third, none of the phones in the camp works, so the two siblings can't call their parents. Fourth, a camper gets tokens if they win tournaments in sports. If the campers reach up to 6 tokens, they go to the winners round. The strange thing is, the campers never come back. When Wendy found out why the ground shook and why the campers disappeared, she and her brother wanted to leave. In the camp's cellar, a huge animal was in there. The campers that disappeared had to wash it daily or they will get eaten. Wendy and he brother told the campers to run. When they ran away, the monster tried to get them, but then fell over and turned into a liquid. Their parents found Wendy and Elliot, then safely resumed their road trip. The end

    The Horror at Camp Jellyjam is... one of the weirder Goosebumps novels. It doesn't compare to Camp Nightmare, but it wasn't as horrible as I anticipated. Though it does feel like an acid trip for kids... In this book, Elliot and Wendy are separated from their parents after an accident, but they end up right near a camp specialising in sports that is happy to let them stay until their parents can be fond. Elliot loves it there, but Wendy is concerned that the counsellors seem a little weird, and e The Horror at Camp Jellyjam is... one of the weirder Goosebumps novels. It doesn't compare to Camp Nightmare, but it wasn't as horrible as I anticipated. Though it does feel like an acid trip for kids... In this book, Elliot and Wendy are separated from their parents after an accident, but they end up right near a camp specialising in sports that is happy to let them stay until their parents can be fond. Elliot loves it there, but Wendy is concerned that the counsellors seem a little weird, and everyone who succeeds as an athlete seems to disappear... When she starts snooping, she discovers that the camp is really a trap run by a giant purple monster blob who uses children to keep him clean and relatively unsmelly (he sweats snails somehow, and can't stand his own stench). Wendy defeats him by letting him stew in his own filth, and all the kids escape! I can't deny that Camp Jellyjam is creepy, particularly with its cult-like counsellors and bizarre earthquakes, but it is very very strange. Goosebumps are never founded in reality, but a giant monster blob is one of the less believable creations Stine came up with. On the other hand, none of the characters are intolerable, and the parents are not around to mess up the plot so it's a lot more readable than the last several books I've picked up in this series.

    This book was one of my childhood favourites! It was one of the first Goosebumps books I ever read and it was so enjoyable to re-read it! This story follows Wendy and Elliot who start the book in the back of their parent's car bored senseless. After convincing their parents to let them sit in the caravan they're hitching, they start to realise they are moving backwards! To their horror they became unhinged. They roll down a hill and into camp Jellyjam, a sports camp with the slogan 'Only the Best This book was one of my childhood favourites!

After convincing their parents to let them sit in the caravan they're hitching, they start to realise they are moving backwards! To their horror they became unhinged. They roll down a hill and into camp Jellyjam, a sports camp with the slogan 'Only the Best'-a slogan they take far too serious. Turns out there's something eerie happening here and when kids start disappearing and Wendy fears her brother is in danger, she starts to investigate and finds out that the cartoon of the cuddly camp mascot (a purple blob thing with a crown) is much more than a cartoon! As I've said before, I love R.L. Stine's writing and even though this series was written for younger children, it's rare that I don't enjoy a book from it!

    This book has everything that will keep a young reader entertained…excitement, intrigue, mystery, terror, and of course grossness! I think that R.L. Stine is one of the best “horror” writers for children because he finds a way to empower the young characters of his books to find their own solutions to their problems. Problem-solving is definitely a necessity in the world, and I love how Stine can empower children to solve problems and think for themselves in a manner that appeals to them.

Problem-solving is definitely a necessity in the world, and I love how Stine can empower children to solve problems and think for themselves in a manner that appeals to them. True, they may never have to deal with being enslaved by a disgusting, stinky purple blob that sweats snails and eats children…but in a way, it’s as if he’s telling readers that their problems can’t be half as bad as the characters’ in his stories. I definitely recommend R.L. Stine, and especially the Goosebumps series, to all parents who have children who love scary, funny, action-packed, and gross stories all rolled into one.
