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.
*** 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.
mom and reviewer for BooksForKids-reviews
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.Read more ›
