We’re thrilled to welcome Penguin Random House library representative Robert Haddock to the BOT blog to share his thoughts on a scary-good audio…
What’s your worst nightmare ever? I know what my best nightmare ever is, the latest audiobook NIGHTMARES! by Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller. Jason Segel’s fabulous narration is worthy of mention alongside some of the all-time greats like Jim Dale and Kirby Heyborne. Jason’s characters are perfectly pitched and his monsters incredibly creepy—you would swear you are listening to 100 different people narrate this book! This was great to share with my two boys for some fun family listening—they both loved it.

More audio praise for NIGHTMARES!
“It will be evident to listeners that Jason Segel is having fun narrating his first book…he lightens the scariness with humorous touches, like giving over-the-top accents to various monsters…This fun middle-grade story would make a good listening on a car trip. Segel’s performance is lively enough for those of all ages to enjoy.”—AudioFile
“Q: On a scale of 1-5, how many stars would give Nightmares? A: I would give it 7 stars and I’m excited for the next one!”—Jenuine Cupcakes blog, “Guest Audiobook Review: Interview with my 9 almost 10 year old“
And fear not…this is the first audio in a trilogy! The next “nightmare” in the series, The Sleepwalker Tonic, is set to haunt your library shelves next September.
