It's similar to the Goosebumps Movie Novel, however it's shortened out, and there are photos from the film inside. Unlike the other movie novels (or any other Goosebumps book), this book is targeted for children ages 7-9. Also, the book is based on the film with the movie's deleted scenes and alternate ending, although the book doesn't mention anything about Hannah being a ghost or her returning the book.
Kate Howard, the author of this book, is an American children's author. She has primarily written picture books for children, ages 7-9. Some of her most noteworthy works include her short book adaptions of the children's television show LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu.
