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

Loved all the graphic books in the series.

Hernandez does a great job in the end, and I really liked his rendition of Wolf, and he paces the story nicely.

Great books for those who are still a little young for the traditional Goosebumps books.

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
I found this book in a bookstore in a mall that I visit and thought that it would be a neat present for my Dad, who enjoyed horror and crime comix during the fifties.

Of course, I just had to read it too, and it was way better than I thought that it would be as I had heard some negative things about Stine's work from other adults.

This trade paperback contains three black and white graphic adaptations of three R. L. Stine Goosebumps novels. I have never read the novels and had to judge the book and its stories on their own merits. I also agree with one reviewer that these adaptations might have worked better in color, but you can't have everything.

--The first novel adaptation is "The Werewolf Of Fever Swamp" and is adapted and illustrated by Gabriel Hernandez and is forty-four pages long and is the story of Grady, who along with his sister Emily, and his father and mother have just moved into a new home in the Florida swamps. There Grady meets the swamp hermit who lurks around the swamp; Will Blake and Cassie O'Rourke who are his neighbors and who are his age, and most importantly, sometime during one of the nights a wolf/dog, to be named Wolf, which befriends Grady.

Soon after Wolf's entrance into the story strange things start to happen, and Grady sees what he believes is a werewolf. Grady's family thinks that Wolf is too wild, and is doing the damage that is seen around Grady's house. Is it Wolf, or something else? And why does the werewolf seem to be stalking Grady? There's a nice twist to the story in the end.

The art irritated me at first, but then grew on me. Hernandez does a great job in the end, and I really liked his rendition of Wolf, and he paces the story nicely. Good work. Five stars.

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.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased three of the Goosebumps Graphix books for my seven year old. She’s really gotten into some of the other graphic type books like Baby Mouse, Smile/Sisters, etc., so I thought with that combined with her interest in anything spooky she may enjoy these. She read all three in one day and even read one twice. She said that they were scary but they didn’t seem to give her nightmares or be over the top. Great books for those who are still a little young for the traditional Goosebumps books.

A Kid's Review on April 15, 2008
Format: Paperback
My name is Jack and I am 8 years old. My favorite story was "Werewolf of Fever Swamp," because I like the scary parts and the suprise at the end. I like the drawings in "Scarecrow" because Stanley had a really scary face when he said, "The scarecrows are walking!!" Overall, I loved that book and I would recommend it for other 8-9-10 year olds.
