A New York Times Bestseller written and narrated by Jason Segel!
Jason Segel, multitalented actor, writer, and musician, teams up with New York Times
bestselling author Kirsten Miller for the hilariously frightening, middle-grade novel Nightmares!,
the first audiobook in a trilogy about a boy named Charlie and a group of kids who must face their fears to save their town.
Sleeping has never been so scary. And now waking up is even worse!
Charlie Laird has several problems.
1. His dad married a woman he is sure moonlights as a witch.
2. He had to move into her purple mansion, which is NOT a place you want to find yourself after dark.
3.He can’t remember the last time sleeping wasn’t a nightmarish prospect. Like even a nap.
What Charlie doesn’t know is that his problems are about to get a whole lot more real. Nightmares can ruin a good night’s sleep, but when they start slipping out of your dreams and into the waking world—that’s a line that should never be crossed.
And when your worst nightmares start to come true...well, that’s something only Charlie can face. And he’s going to need all the help he can get, or it might just be lights-out for Charlie Laird. For good.

Sometimes he stars in those movies and sings those songs. You might know him from The Muppets

is his first novel.
