by R. L. Stine
When twins Lindy and Kris find a ventriloquist's dummy in a dumpster, Lindy decides to rescue it and name it Slappy. Kris is green with envy. It's not fair. Why does Lindy get to have all the fun and all the attention? Kris decides to get a dummy of her own. She'll show Lindy. But then things begin to happen. Nasty things. Evil things. A terrible thought occurs to them. What if the dummy is alive and pulling the strings?
