Goosebumps-Night of the Living Dummy by R.L. Stine-134 pages
Twin sisters find a seemingly harmless ventriloquist dummy in the dumpster and take it home. Lindy names him Slappy and becomes very good at ventriloquism, so her sister Kris wants her own dummy and her father buys her one. Kris names him Mr. Wood and tries to become good with him. However, things begin to go awry with Mr. Wood almost right away. Mr. Wood is destroyed, but then Slappy "comes alive" at the end of the book and two more books are written about his "adventures." It was a decent read, but more for kids, obviously.
