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.
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,"
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, CTCopyright 2007 Reed Business Information
