Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Paula Rohrlick
Part of the "Twice Terrifying Tales" reissues in R.L. Stine's "Ghosts of Fear Street" series these two stories will appeal to a new generation eager to feel chills down their spines. The creepy cover featuring a bug-headed human is sure to draw readers to these tales of strange, scary events that take place on Fear Street, in the town of Shadyside. In the first short novel, Vinny makes shadow puppets for his baby brother, until Vinny's shadow starts taking on a life of its own. It grows horns and claws, and tries to take over his body. Vinny and his friend Sharon must venture into the frightening Fear Street Woods to find the lair of the shadow monsters, and somehow find a way to destroy them. In the second tale, Janet didn't intend to wake the Bugman. She was just mowing a lawn when she inadvertently came across his tomb, and now insects won't leave her alone. Mr. Cooney hires her to do yardwork for him, too, and he loves bugs. Is he really human? The twist at the very end of the tale will delight young horror fans. These tales are certain to be popular in both school and public libraries. Reviewer: Paula Rohrlick
