    As far as adventures go, Beware of the Purple Peanut butter has it all! You can shrink to a size where a water bug is as big as a horse (and you get to ride it) or you can grow so big that the FBI and CIA start trying to shoot you down on suspicion you are a gigantic alien invader. It all depends on whether or not you eat the purple peanut butter or the stale and innocous looking piece of chocolate cake. Lots of interesting choices abound this choose your own adventure book.

    This is my partner's favourite GYG, or at least it was when viewed through the rose tinted glasses of childhood. We had a lot of fun doing it in bed together, but the actual choices, at least compared to CYOA, are sparse. The inconsistency of the main character's size, and the general story, gave us a lot of giggles, so I would still recommend this as the laziest date night possible.

    I loved these books as a kid. I was more of an Animorphs fan than a Goosebumps fan (there was a clear divide at the schools I went to which one you were- sort of a Beatles vs Elvis type thing), but I really got into these books. This is one I owned as a child (though this copy belongs to my partner, who also had as a kid). I remember always bookmarking or dogtagging the pages where you could make a choice, and then quickly reading ahead to see if one decision would lead you to an early finish. This book wasn't my favourite, but it wasn't my least favourite, either. A fun book, and a type that I miss as an adult.

    Damn, practically every ending R.L is tryna kill me off or call me a nerd. Written very lighthearted and simply, but (view spoiler)[ being turned into a gingerbread person and sold off in a bakery is a horrifying very terrible way to die, right up there with being squashed to death and being consumed in human form (hide spoiler)] when thought is put into the situations the book kind of lives up to its name, thinking about these situations realistically is a sure way to give yourself Goosebumps. (HAHAHA I'm sorry I couldn't control myself HAHAH)

    This was one of those special kinds of Goosebumps books in which you got to certain points in the story, and R.L. Stine gave you a choice for what you, as the character, would do. Of course, I can't recollect the story of this so well, as it was many years since I last read it, and tried to get to the end without my character meeting his death. But I remember finding the concept pretty mind-blowing at the time. It was basically like an imaginary role-playing video game. My brother and I used to entertain each other by making up stories in a similar vein, and providing certain options for how the story could continue. Pretty awesome stuff, really, as it got kids more excited about reading in a way I think, back then, was highly original.

    I love the Give Yourself Goosebumps series!!! :) You have the option to choose the choices your character makes while reading. My friend told me it was like a game for readers to see if you could actually make it to the end of the book. Even as an adult I still find these books entertaining. It is hard for me though to write a review on this one since the book changes according to your choices and since I have not made it to the end in this one... I even tried choosing different choices every time I reread it. Still no luck. :( I think I gave up on this one after the 5th time reading it. Maybe I will return to it later and see if I can make it to then end in one piece... Lol!!! :)

    This was given to me as a gift from a teacher if I'm correct back in 2009 so I was about 16 and such and impervious to being afraid, I also happened to have been going through a Goosebumps love phase again, as I often do, and the teacher thought they'd be nice and try to freak me out by giving me this book to read. What's scarier than picking your own poison? Well I loved it! I wasn't scared but I was extremely entertained and my reaction entertained my teacher as well. I kind of find that Goosebumps are sort of timeless and also entertaining for older folk to read as well, kinda brings you back to your youth when you wished this kind of stuff happened.

    This is a great book about a boy who has two cousins. His girl cousin is very annoying and his boy cousin is a bully. Very annoying, I tell you. In a hide-and-seek game, he goes to the basement where his uncles told him not to go. That is where the adventure starts. I love this book because it contains very funny endings. It's strange that a goosebumps would have a funny ending, but I'm a child, so I find specific things funny. If I could ever talk to you I would tell you about how this book has so many endings, but now, I would just generally say this book is like "Choose your own adventure" when you have options to pick how the story goes.

    This book was a little different, because it’s a choose your own adventure style book – in fact, Stine styled it ‘Give Yourself Goosebumps‘, and I’m sure you would if you were seven years old.I’m too old for this sort of stuff, but that didn’t stop me from reading it after my ex-housemate moved out and left a bunch of books around. You get to choose what you want to do by turning to the appropriate page – clever readers keep their previous page open, just in case something goes wrong. There are over twenty endings to choose from, in a plot that sees you shrink and try to get back to normal.

    Choose your own adventure books are starting to grow on me again. It's hard to review them in their entirety because there's so many paths and endings to choose from.This one gives you a choice between shrinking and growing, depending on which snack you eat in the basement. Whichever one you take, you get in major trouble. You can even die on this adventure if you make the wrong choices.I just found it absolutely hilarious that the book mocked you for making the most sensible choices (eg. Not going down into the basement in the first place). I LOL'd when I read 'This adventure has been cancelled due to nerdiness. What? You want another chance? Oh okay'.

    This book is really interesting and has a variety of different endings. It starts with your uncle and aunt taking to their house, saying that your cousins are excited to meet you, and already it builds suspense, because the older cousin Barney is a year older and a bully to you while your cousin Dora is a year younger and described as 'Dora the Drag'. Then, your aunt warns you to not go to the basement, and from there on you the whole story turns and it's very fast paced.

    Giving this 3 stars because reading this book still made me curious about the variety of endings. It's like visual novel, and since I really like reading visual novels when I find a good one, I enjoy this more since my choice determines the endings - it really challenges me! Although I will just laugh when I find the bad endings XDStill worth it tho. I will read another books like this if I find them. :D

    Wow! This book is stunningly similar in some ways to both "Monster Blood III" and, of course, Lewis Carroll's classic Alice stories. I really like Beware of the Purple Peanut Butter. It always has held my interest well, and is both funny and a good adventure. It is an entertaining read, and one that always comes to mind first when I think of going through a Give Yourself Goosebumps book.

    Beware of the Purple Peanut Butter is a choose-your-own adventure book by R.L. Stine. You go to stay with your aunt and uncle and are forced to spend time with your bully cousin. He's going to have you play hide-and-seek with him, or give you a beating. The different possible paths in this book are pretty good. Would have been nice if the adventure was a little longer, but so it goes.

    This may sound crazy, goosebumps were made for a much younger generation and I don't care, I love them! This story is so creative and the fact that I can pick my own death adds to the suspense. If you are looking for a easy read that holds your attention then definitely pick this one up.

    Nice and SSCCRAYrrrryyyyy! I liked the style in which this was written-it has internal scares which are highly delightful. I hate the breathtaking parts, but what makes this nice is the flow in which this incredible plot was conjectured. Recommend this for everyone!

    My kids love Goosebumps so once in awhile I pick one up to discuss with them. I liked this one better than some I've read in the past. I do have a special place in my heart for the "choose your own adventure" books though.
