Egg Monsters from Mars by R.L. Stine
Published 1996 by Scholastic Inc.

 

An egg hunt. That’s what Dana Johnson’s bratty little sister, Brandy, wants to have at her birthday party. And whatever Brandy wants, Brandy gets. Dana’s not big on egg hunts. But that was before he found The Egg. It’s not like a normal egg. It’s about the size of a softball. It’s covered with ugly blue and purple veins. And it’s starting to hatch…

 

——

I really loved this one when I was younger. Since it’s sort of Easter-y and I met R.L. Stine last Saturday, I decided it might be fun to re-read this.

This is probably still one of my favorites. I liked Dana as a character and the whole Easter-egg party was a pretty cool idea. Then there’s the egg monsters, who I also thought were cool and the sort of Goosebumps monsters I wouldn’t mind meeting.

The only thing that made me shake my head in disbelief was the ending. Though to be fair, it’s also an ending I’m sure readers won’t see coming at all.

Reading this was like saying hello again to an old friend!
