Creepy creatures are howling, growling, and on the prowl in this cool new Graphix anthology adapted and illustrated by three acclaimed comic artists.
With his shadowy illustrations, Gabriel Hernandez creates the perfect atmosphere in The Werewolf of Fever Swamp, a spooky story about a boy and his dog who go sniffing around in a lonely swamp...and wish they hadn't!
Greg Ruth's beautiful but eerie drawings in The Scarecrow Walks at Midnight turn a girl's visit to her grandparents' farm into one scary and dangerous summer vacation.
Scott Morse brings his quirky sense of humor and madcap illustrations to The Abominable Snowman of Pasadena, where a curious brother and sister unwittingly unleash a fierce - and frosty - monster in sunny California.
Three of Goosebumps creepiest creature books ever come to life in this ghoulish collection of spine-tingling Graphix fun!
Gr 5 UpThese 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

I love the Goosebumps series!! The newest book is totally creepy. If you love to be creeped out, buy this book!
This book is good
Would love for my kid to read this book, but the Nook can't read it. And B&N can't do anything to help. Stay away.
