About the Author
R.L. (Robert Lawrence) Stine is one of the best-selling children's authors in history. His Goosebumps series, along with such series as Fear Street, The Nightmare Room, Rotten School, and Mostly Ghostly have sold nearly 400 million books in this country alone. And they are translated into 32 languages.
The Goosebumps TV series was the top-rated kids’ series for three years in a row. R.L.’s TV movies, including The Haunting Hour: Don’t Think About It and Mostly Ghostly, are perennial Halloween favorites. And his scary TV series, R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour, is in its second season on The Hub network.
R.L. continues to turn out Goosebumps books, published by Scholastic. In addition, his first horror novel for adults in many years, titled Red Rain, will be published by Touchstone books in October, 2012.
R.L. says that he enjoys his job of “scaring kids.” But the biggest thrill for him is turning kids on to reading.
R.L. lives in New York City with his wife, Jane, an editor and publisher, and King Charles Spaniel, Minnie. His son, Matthew, is a sound designer and music producer.

I am quite underwhelmed by these R.L. Stine books. I was a big fan as a teenager. I still find myself reading some of the Fear Street books again. This book, The 13th Warning, is aimed at a younger audience, 6th grade and up. The book is short (about 76 pages) and very easy to read. The plot, the narration, dialogue and just about everything is VERY simple. Extremely. Overly simplistic. At age 9, I was reading far more complex books in English (which is not even my first language). The horror in this book is not that scary, so I do not think it will scare children. Some kids are reading Harry Potter by this age, sometimes even earlier.
I think I accidentally read the book by flipping through it. That is how short it is. This books, and others like it by this author, are good for children that are just getting into reading. If you child reads at a higher grade than he or she is in, he/she will get bored. This one doesn't have the best plot or action either.
This book is a great book for young readers. It's short, but that's okay- it lets them brag that "I read it in one day." BTW being 60 going on 12, I also enjoyed this book, which I got for my young nephew. :)
One of the nice things about Stine's books is that they are designed to be fun for the kids. They don't preach at them about social issues, the ecology, the "right" way to feel about things, etc. The only message is "Reading's FUN- so lets do some more of it!"
THE 13TH WARNING
I have always been a huge R.L. Stine fan ever since the very first "Goosebumps" book was released. I went on to get every book in that series as well as his other works like the "Fear Street" series. So when I noticed this was available I had to get it. It had been a while since I have read one of Stine's works so I had to get it.
The story follows a boy called Lucky who by all accounts is just that, lucky. He is the 13th child of two 13th children themselves and is getting ready to turn 13. All is well and going great for Lucky until he and his sister open the door for three creepy visitors. A man, woman, and black cat are there to greet them and give them a warning. That warning is do not collect thirteen 13's before your birthday is over or they will be coming for you. Of course despite them being very creepy they do not take the warning very serious. That is of course until they notice 13's popping up everywhere and Lucky's luck not being so lucky. So as they add up that means he is ever closer to the dark ones coming for him.
I found this to be a very fun read and my little cuz loved it and thought it was creepy. She is seven and I think that this book is perfect for those around that age range. It is short enough to keep them interested and creepy enough for little kids. I think this would be a perfect book for kids like that so I would recommend it. As for older kids it may be a little too tame but even as an adult I thought it was fun. I liked that Stine did an intro explaining how the idea came to him, that was cool.
