"Fans of Goosebumps and the updated Baby-Sitters' Club graphic novels will find lots to like in this delightfully monstrous mash-up." —School Library Journal on Babysitting Nightmares: The Shadow Hand

The supernatural never sleeps in Babysitting Nightmares: The Phantom Hour, the second book in Kat Shepherd's spooky adventure series!

Clio has already had one brush with the paranormal, and she’s dead set on making it her last.

But her new babysitting job is in a haunted house! At first, Clio’s excited to work at the historical Victorian mansion in town—until doors start closing behind her, objects move on their own, and messages appear from beyond the grave.

Clio enlists the help of her three best friends, Tanya, Maggie, and Rebecca, to uncover long-buried secrets from the past. Can Clio face her fear and solve the mystery of the haunted mansion?

There are a handful of black-and-white illustrations by Rayanne Vieira for the key spine-tingling moments.
