By 2008, the series had sold more than 300 million copies worldwide.

What Oliver Says: All my friends are reading these books.  They are pretty spooky that's why we like them. I have been reading Goosebumps HorrorLand.  Something scary always happens to someone and they end up in HorrorLand which is the world's most famous Scream Park with places like the Warewolf Village and tour guides and guards who are mosters! My cousin has also given me some Goosebumps books that he read when he was little.  They're called Give Yourself Goosebumps and they're like a choose your own adevnture book.  They're pretty cool.  

I have just finished reading The Scream of the Haunted Mask.  The main character, Carly Beth, meets a  ghost, Lara, at the stables at the back of where she works after school. Her friend Sabrina buries the mask.  Lara used to use the mask to scare horses to death.  Lara tells Carly Beth to bring the mask to her but Carly Beth puts it on to defet her.  Lara gets defeted by ghost horses and she tells Carly Beth she is the only one that can take care of the horses and that Carly Beth can take the mask off because the mask can only be removed by a symbol of love.
