FRIGHTLAND #2 Why I Don’t Sleep On Feather Beds
Gavin and his sister Torrie aren’t thrilled to be staying at Great Aunt Ethel’s farm. It’s in the middle of nowhere, Aunt Ethel is a little weird, and Gavin is forced to sleep on an old, lumpy feather bed. Then Gavin discovers something worse: the lumps are moving. Torrie thinks he’s just crazy—there’s no way something’s alive inside the mattress—until the lumps begin to hatch…

Frightland Horror books are among the best books to introduce horror to children in a safe way. Horror is like comedy. It’s an essential emotion to be felt regardless of age but the violence and gore is something that we don’t want the children to read. When a child is swinging or going down the slide or reading a story about a knight fighting dragons, that child is experiencing the thrills of the horror genre. It’s that simple, and doesn’t have to always involve ghosts or terrible things we adults enjoy about horror.
Frightland comics amplify the fear we have about the unknown places, unknown people, and strange situations. Like Kickstarter says, these books are not just good for children but for adults as well because the writing style is professional, and intriguing. The language is easy to understand for children but the writing style appeals to the adults too due to the well crafted sentences. We reviewed and loved Frightland #1 book, and now we are going to review Frightland #2 which is like an enjoyable read of a visit to a scary grandma’s house in a strange place from a 12 years old child’s perspective.
The horror book focuses on a family of four. The protagonist is a 12 years old boy called Gavin, his 16 years old sister, and their parents. Together, they’re going to the house of the siblings’ grandmother which doesn’t seem like a big deal at first but as we get to know more about the place where it’s located, we see why the protagonist is afraid… The description of everything happening, and of everyone involved in the story is told from the perspective of Gavin. The book has the professional writing style of a novel but still maintains the friendly and relatable “diary” like feel to the storytelling as we get to know everything from Gavin’s thoughts. The story takes place in the present time so there are references to smartphones, and other things to add interesting storytelling elements and often to add humor. The best thing about the book is that even the simplest things of journey or some place has been told in such a way that it feels cinematic and scary. The dialogues are well placed and there’s rarely anything added as a filler. The story keeps getting interesting as you progress and giving you small chunks of information as the pages turn. As the story progresses, we get to know about the place and things start becoming more interesting!
In conclusion, Frightland 2 is an enjoyable, intriguing, and thrilling read for all ages. It’s among the best books to introduce the horror genre to children and as an adult, it’s among the most well made books out there. Highly recommended to add into your collection. Give yourself (or your child) a treat and grab this book from the creators directly by checking out the Kickstarter campaign today!!
