The days following Halloween are always sort of a let-down. After spending all of that time picking out your costume, sniffing out the largest possible pillow case to haul your load of candy, and giving yourself a good fright with an overdose of scary movies, in just a few fun-filled hours it’s all over, and there are a full 364 days left until you get to do it over again next year. But just because October 31 is now behind us doesn’t mean that the scares need to stop. Fun-size candies may come and go, but you can get Goosebumps from fright-master R.L. Stine all year.
In fact, a lot of kids got a head start on all the horror-ific Goosebumps fun when a trip to the local zoo included an extra-special surprise: a brand-new, FREE Goosebumps book from Scholastic!
If you happened to visit the Bronx Zoo in New York, NY, on October 20-21; Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago, IL, on October 20; or Central Florida Zoo in Orlando, FL, on October 28, there’s a good chance you walked away with your very own free copy of Goosebumps!
Here are some photos from the Bronx Zoo.
Tell us . . . Do you like to read scary stories from Goosebumps year-round?
