Goosebumps: Hall of Horrors #1: Claws!

Goosebumps HorrorLand: Hall of Horrors introduces R.L. Stine fans to a brand-new place filled with all-new eerie adventures and mysteries, and major fear-producing spectres that will send a chill up your spine. It's an old castle off the beaten path of Horrorland that you can't find on a map. And you can only access its deep secrets if you are accompanied by The Keeper, walking through the Unliving Room into the dark recesses of the Hall of Horrors.

This first adventure, titled CLAWS! for a good reason, brings together Mickey Coe with a cat named Bella. With the help of his best friend Amanda, Mickey can barely keep this crazy cat under control. But then the uncontrollable Bella runs outside and gets hit by a truck. Horrified and saddened, Mickey doesn't know what to do, but Amanda steps into action: Get a look-alike cat from Cat Heaven! Seems easy enough, until it becomes clear that this cat is nothing like the mild-mannered Bella. She has a life (or nine) of her own…and she may take one at the same time!

In keeping with the Goosebumps tradition, Hall of Horrors will become an exciting new first stop on the road to scarier times --- a true horror destination. Read this story at your own risk. And the next time you pet a cat, make sure she's not from Cat Heaven. CLAWS! is ready to get its claws into you!
