Bad dreams take center stage in the third book of this spooky adventure series, Babysitting Nightmares: The Twilight Curse by Kat Shepherd!

When the town's old movie palace is converted into a theater, Maggie is thrilled to get a job helping with the first stage production. Even though she’s just babysitting an actor's daughter, Maggie is determined to learn everything she can about acting.

But a devilish ghoul seems to have other plans for the performance! It’s up to Maggie, Clio, Rebecca and Tanya to investigate. Can they vanquish the threat in time for opening night?

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