Another creepy tale for beside the campfire or beneath the covers from “Twisted Sisters” Annette and Gina Cascone’s Deadtime Stories—now a hit show on Nickelodeon!

Peter Newman really wants a twenty-one-speed mountain bike. That’s the grand prize for his school’s talent competition. All he needs is a talent. So when Peter sees an ad for the Little Magic Shop of Horrors, he and his best friend Bo rush right over. For only $9.95, Peter buys a magic kit and becomes “Peter the Great.”  Now he can do tricks even Houdini couldn’t perform!

The only problem is Peter can't undo the tricks. But that doesn’t bother him too much. Until he wins the talent contest—by taking off Bo’s head! Will Peter be able to save his headless best friend?

Peter Newman twisted in his seat, squirming in unbearable pain. He held his hands tightly over his ears. Still, he couldn’t escape the bloodcurdling sound.
Peter’s best friend, Bo Wilson, tugged on his arm. “What does that sound like to you?” he asked over the hideous wailing.
Peter shrugged helplessly. He couldn’t begin to describe the horrible noise.
Bo answered his own question. “It sounds like cats being slaughtered.”
That was exactly what it sounded like! Murder.
