About the author :

Robert Lawrence Stine began career as an author writing short stories and joke books -- but in the early 1990's, he introduced the wildly popular Goosebumps series. The books sold millions of copies, and made reading frighteningly fun again for kids.

Come along for the ride on three Terror Trips from the bestselling Goosebumps series.This second GB Graphix anthology features acclaimed comic artists Jill Thompson, Jamie Tolagson, Amy Kim Ganter.

Take these Terror Trips . . . and hope you return!
Three hot, talented comic artists adapt these bestselling Goosebumps books into a cool new graphic novel format.

JILL THOMPSON, the award-winning creator of The Scary Godmother series, brings her quirky humor and madcap illustrations to "One Day at Horrorland," where a family lost in an amusement park finds the rides a little too creepy, a little too real!

JAMIE TOLAGSON, artist on The Crow, The Dreaming, and the Books of Magic series, turns up the juice in "A Shocker on Shock Street,"

Children's Literature - Jonathan Hodges

The Goosebumps trademark has fascinated young readers since it began in the 1990s. Originally told descriptively with words, this book gives life to the descriptions through the retelling of these tales as a graphic novel. The second story, "A Shocker on Shock Street," begins with the protagonists Josh and Erin watching the movie Shocker VI in the theater. Erin's father, creator of high-end robots for movies, decides to give the kids a ride through a new theme park that goes through the streets and towns where the movies are filmed. Josh and Erin experience many adventures on their quest through the theme park, all while growing suspicious that the attractions may not actually be robots. In the end, Erin's father comes out and turns his two faulty, robotic children, Josh and Erin, off. Although the illustrations are well done, they detract from the spookiness of the book. The overwhelming detail in the illustrations throughout the book leaves little to the imagination. Rather than having horrors described in vivid detail, as they are in the original, the reader is presented with a different interpretation of the book's scary aspects, completely removing the "fear of the unknown" so integral to the original version. These stories could be used in the classroom to demonstrate the different effects produced by a graphic novel as opposed to its word-based counterpart. Reviewer: Jonathan Hodges

KLIATT - Jennifer Feigelman

Three tales of middle-school horror have been adapted from the ubiquitous, long-running Goosebumps series into graphic novel format. Jill Thompson (Scary Godmother) reworks a family's terrifying trip to a haunted amusement park in "One Day at Horrorland" with frenetic lines and mismatched panel sizing. Jamie Tolagson tackles the adaptation of the SF nightmare "A Shocker on Shock Street." Amy Kim Ganter (Sorcerers and Secretaries) adapts the undersea adventure "Deep Trouble" into a clearly defined graphic format with clean, bold lines. Destined to be a hit with the "tween" crowd, this collection offers fast-paced versions of the well-known tales. While the art is widely varied, ranging from dark and grainy to clean Photoshop-touched panels, the unifying theme of Terror Trips smoothly fuses the stories together. Not quite as chilling as some of the entries in Creepy Creatures, the first book in the series, this volume has the right dash of intrigue, mystery and thrills for a younger audience. This is a fine addition to most public and school libraries and should fare well in both. The next volume, Scary Summer, due out in the summer of 2007, promises to offer more popular graphic novel icons, such as Ted Naifeh, Kyle Baker and Dean Haspiel.

School Library Journal

Gr 3 & Up - Three more tales from Stine's "Goosebumps" series (Scholastic) have made their way into graphic-novel format. Like the previous adaptations, the selections are well suited to the genre, and the three artists adapted tales well suited to their styles. Thompson relates the story of a family trip to an amusement park gone wrong in "One Day at Horrorland." Tolagson's giant insects and robotic terrors lead to an end twist in "A Shocker on Shock Street." In "Deep Trouble," Ganter uses her sweeter style on mermaids as well as sea monsters. Concluding pages show the process that each artist went through to adapt Stine's novels to comic format. Though readers already familiar with all the "Goosebumps" titles may not be surprised by the endings, the change of format brings something new and fresh to the familiar tales. Horror fans and comics readers alike will find something to enjoy here.-Alana Abbott, James Blackstone Memorial Library, Branford, CT
