Horn Book
The series title refers to the time when "things go bump in the night." It also describes the book's format: ten short horror stories with three components--audio introduction (on a website), text, and story's conclusion (short video on the same website)--all together taking fifteen minutes or less. It's a lot of work for a mildly chilling payoff; the tech gimmick may hook reluctant readers.
Publishers Weekly
Following in the interactive vein of Carman's Skeleton Creek series, this story collection launches a series with three components-audio, text, and video. Kids can visit a Web site and enter a password (provided in the book) to listen to a fairly creepy audio introduction to each of these 10 tales (nine of which were released earlier this year in an app, along with their audio and video components). After returning to the book, readers use another password to gain access to its online video conclusion. Sounding both a welcome and a warning, the audio introductions are somewhat superfluous; more substantive are the synergetic print stories and videos, some of which pack a chilling punch. These include the tale of a teen who is sucked into a mirror when she shoplifts from an antique store; a boy who meets a harrowing end after discovering that he's riding a chairlift with a monster; and a girl who's attacked by a gargoyle that springs to life outside her window. The polished interactive elements should help hook reluctant readers on the print element. Ages 10-14. (Sept.)
School Library Journal
Gr 4&11;6&12; In this chilling new series, 3:15 is a "place where spooky stories find a home." Readers will experience 10 terrifying tales in three parts: a fearsome audio introduction, several pages of spooky text, and a spine-chilling video conclusion accessible online or through a free downloadable mobile app-all in 15 minutes or less. Each story contains a cliff-hanger that includes a password unlocking its ending. Readers meet Cody Miller, whose greediness leads to an ominous mistake involving a man with a hook as a hand; Emma Franklin, who learns that not all childhood tears are foolish; and Dylan Smith, who should know better than to show off his snowboarding skills on a haunted mountain. The other stories range from a mirror with diabolical powers to a cannibalistic teacher, horrific ghosts, deathly gargoyles, gruesome monsters with claws, and giant atomic ants. The selections are filled with light suspense, encouraging readers to watch the endings. While this is a great multimedia experience, readers without access to the Internet or mobile applications will not be able to experience the stories' conclusions. For those who do have access, it's a first purchase.&12; Krista Welz, North Bergen Public Library, NJ
