SELECT REVIEWS:

  • SLJ
    Gr 5 Up–These selections from the “Goosebumps” series have been abridged and put in a graphic-novel format, and the fast pace and horror elements make them perfect for this format. The black-and-white illustrations for each one are very different but fit each story well. In “The Werewolf of Fever Swamp,” the artwork bristles much like the hackles on a werewolf's neck. The smooth, realistic style of “The Scarecrow Walks at Midnight” makes the scarecrow chilling and haunting. The bolder, cartoon style of “The Abominable Snowman of Pasadena” perfectly fits this more humorous tale. This is a great option for younger readers interested in graphic novels, and the nostalgia is there for the older set.–Melissa T. Jenvey, New York Public Library
