New middle-grade horror from the award-winning author of the Haunted Canada series!

“Don’t you love to laugh?” Beauregard asked. He took a few steps toward us. His clown shoes slapped the ground, and the floorboards creaked beneath them. “Or do you prefer to cry?”

Sai, Jason, and Aaliyah can’t believe their luck when they win a chance to appear on the next episode of the hit TV show Screamers. Zoë Winter, the show’s star, is just as excited to spend time with regular kids her own age. When the creepy set, an abandoned amusement park called Pennyland, turns out to be haunted by an evil clown, the four friends must work together to put on the performance of their lives . . . for their lives..
