But what makes it good enough to care about years later? Having gotten nostalgic for the books (years ago I have up my cardboard box of over twenty Goosebumps books to a younger cousin, and will probably never see them again) I decided to treat myself to a copy of my favorite one. True, it only took me an hour to breeze through, and was certainly not the same read from when I was eight, but I was actually surprised at how well the story held up.
What ultimately makes it work is the characterization. R.L Stine's kids always felt like kids, easy to relate to, and the "voice" of them, whether girl or boy, always sounded authentic. The stories were never *scary*, but definitely were creepy, and more often than not had a great sense of atmosphere and tension. The end was usually not what you saw coming, and yet managed to hold up over subsequent readings. Not all endings were happy, but were still a sly wink at the reader.
So, though a quick, light read, "Werewolf of Fever Swamp" is fun, especially to read aloud to a younger brother or sister who doesn't see the end coming. There are plenty of other books and movies that are "too scary for children". Goosebumps are for them.
The paper quality is top notch on the inside as well, and if you're a Goosebumps fan, you KNOW the story is as well. Highly recommended!
When Grady Tucker and his family move to thir new home in the Florida swamp, Grady is ready for action. He can't wait to explore the vast swamp with all the interesting wildlife. But just four days after moving in Grady hears something very weird at night. Howls. Like the howls of a wolf or a coyote. But after meeting two kids in the swamp, Will and Cassie, Cassie says something very surprising and weird. "There is a werewolf in the swamp," she says. "Those howls at night are the werewolf." At first, Grady does not believe them. But then there was the ripped apart heron in the swamp. Then the ripped apart bunny rabbit. And then the murdered deer. Everyone thinks Grady's new dog is responsible. After all, he showed up just about when the howls started. But Grady knows his dog is just a regular old dog. But he does not know who is the werewolf in the swamp. And the werewolf has been watching him ever since.
