Only one officer came up the stairs. He had a notebook and he asked questions and wrote down the answers, but he didn’t seem to think anything really bad had happened to Ma. I swallowed so hard it hurt. Her only friend in the building is Sally, across the hall. She hasn’t been there. A friend outside the building, the cop said. He sounded bored, as if this kind of thing happened all the time and it was never important

Willo Davis Roberts (May 29, 1928 – November 19, 2004) was an American writer, known primarily for children's mystery and suspense novels. In 1949, she married David W. Roberts. She was originally trained as a paramedic and began writing in her spare time. Her first book, "Murder At Grand Bay," (published in 1955) was written for an adult market.

Rick and Kenny's Pa was right -- troubles really do happen in threes. First Pa's truck was robbed, then Pa ran off, leaving Rick, Kenny, and Ma to fend for themselves, and now Ma has disappeared, too. Rick just knows Ma would never leave them on purpose -- but then, where is she? Waiting in Uncle Henry's trailer park doesn't seem like the best way to find out. Instead, the brothers, along with their new friends, Connie and Julie, decide to search the abandoned Wonderland Amusement Park next door for answers. But what they find inside sends them on the most terrifying roller coaster ride of their lives -- could whoever took Ma be after them, too?
  • Good book.

  • This was a great book from my childhood, and I was so happy to find it again.

  • Scared Stiff is a very mysterious book. First Rob (the narrator) and Kenny (his little brother) 's dad runs away and then their mom disappears. This is when Rob and Kenny have to go with Uncle Henry. He lives in a bus and he sleeps during the day because he works at night. The bus is parked at RV Wonderland Park. Here, they make friends with Julie and Conner. They sneak into the park and play on stuff, though none of them work. Two men are searching them. Where is mom and who is after Rob and Kenny? Read the book to find the answer!
    SPOILER ALERT
    The two men, Zimmer and Packard, hijacked dad's truck so the two could get money. And the two men decided to lock mom in the cabin. They thought it was easier to take Rob and Kenny hostage so she would do what they told her. But no! Julie and Conner call the police while the men are after them. Afterwards, Zimmer and Packard get arrested and mom gets released safely. This book is mysterious, but also exciting too!!!

  • This story takes place it the summer & the kind of end of spring This story is at Ricky's & his little brothers apartment with his parents & at his great uncles rev. at an rev . park. The setting is important because the apartment might have some clues to were there mom is & the rev. park is somewhere to sleep & there might be some clues there also.

    This book is mostly about a little boy & his big brother Rick. They are trying to figure out about there dad, where he is & also were there mom is.With the help of two friends they had meet at the rev. park. The first half of the book is about how they are still so confused about all that is happpining.The second half of the book is about how they are looking & trying to figure out were there mom is.

    My opinion this was a fabulous & well written. When I put the book down i was always anxious about what will happen next. I thought the book was perfect. i would recommend this book because it had allot of details & if you put the book down you would be itching for more.

  • This book is classic willo davis roberts. kenny and rick's mom disappers, and the police aren't convinced she didn't just walk off on her own, while the boys are sure her disappearance has something to do with the man in a black they saw her talking to the last time they saw her. rick and kenny go to live with their great-uncle henry and become friends with Julie and Connie, who help them investigate to try to find enough clues to convince the police. And then there is the inevitable scary, fast-paced encounter with the kidnappers in an abondoned amusement park at the end.

    the story was fine. that's why i gave it three stars. but there wasn't anything special about it. the characters were ok; i didn't dislike them, and i didn't feel like they were strangers, but they just weren't all that deep. same with the rest of the book. there wasn't really any POINT to the story. i mean it made sense and everything, and it had a good plotline and wasn't boring or unbelievable, but there wasn't anything for me to take away with me. nothing moving.

    so it's a fine book to get if you need a book to read. it just wasn't anything special.

  • In this book young Rick and Kenny notice that trouble comes in threes.1st a load of tv's go missing.2nd mom and dad have a fight and dad walks out. 3rd mom is kidnapped. Living in a purple school bus Rick, Kenny, and new friends look for clues and explore Wonderland. This book is five stars. What a great book
