Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 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

From Booklist

The first volume in the new Goosebumps Graphix series, adapted from the Goosebumps books by R. L. Stine, offers three of Stine's stories, each one illustrated in black and white. Hernandez uses sketchy but expressive art to convey the spooky atmosphere of "The Werewolf of Fever Swamp," in which Grady investigates what is haunting the swamp where his parents have relocated the family. The "gotcha" ending of the tale is particularly well done. Greg Ruth's detailed pencil artwork ably depicts the old farm in "The Scarecrow Walks at Midnight." And Scott Morse brings his unique, scratchy art style to "The Abominable Snowman of Pasadena," in which a scientist and his two kids bring a strange creature back from the Arctic. The lightweight horror stories of the Goosebumps series lend themselves well to visual adaptation, and the well-known, independent comics creators showcased in this collection have an opportunity to introduce their talents to a new, young audience. The original stories have been popular for years, and this graphic-novel format is sure to attract its own following. Kat Kan

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Midwest Book Review on December 9, 2006
Format: Hardcover
Three comic artists adapt the R.L. Stine 'Goosebumps' stories to graphic novel format for young readers - and promise to attract even reluctant readers with its black and white visual embellishments. Here are excellent, eerie drawings to illustrate a girl's dangerous visit to her grandparents, and a case of curious siblings unleashing a monster in Southern California. While color might have worked even better, Goosebumps: Creepy Creatures is still a top pick for elementary-level readers who appreciate the thrill of the chill.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My boys loved this book. Came in timely because I purchased it right before Halloween. It's more cartoon like but who cares given that it's reading at the end of the day.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book choice for 'hesitant' readers.

Written at the nearly 3rd Grade level (see notes below) there is lots of action in this book, without a lot of dialog and narrative.

The first story is "The Werewolf of Fever Swamp". Like the other stories, the graphics are colorless; which is not to say simple. It's nice grayscale which conveys the mood and scariness quite well. The second story is "The Scarecrow Walks at Midnight", and if anything the artwork is even better. The final story is "The Abominable Snowman of Pasadena". It's more humorous and the artwork is more retro, reminding me somehow of Daddy Warbucks and Little Orphan Annie, only without color.

Wrap Up:::

*** 3.5 Stars ***
The official Accelerated Reading designation for this book is 2.7, which means that the average 2nd Grader in the 7th month of school should be able to read this without getting stymied by the vocabulary.

Some sources give the Interest Level as 4th to 7th Grade. I would extend that by a year or two lower.
