R.L. Stine is the creator of the bestselling Goosebumps series, which inspired the popular television show, as well as the Fear Street series and many other spooky tales for children. He has also written dozens of joke books for kids.
Marc Brown is the creator of the bestselling Arthur Adventure book series and creative producer of the #1 children's PBS television series "Arthur." He has illustrated many books for children, including Marc Brown's Playtime Rhymes, Ten Tiny Toes, and Wild About Books.
K-Gr 3—In Stine's first picture book, an unseen narrator provides a tour of a pet shop stocked full of monsters. The spooky travelogue is peppered with slightly sinister asides, such as "I hope they don't break the glass, jump out, and EAT you. (Would that spoil your day?)." Among the beasts eager to share your home is "Bubble-Belly Billy," a greedy-eyed, long-clawed snacker who is surrounded by bones and apple cores. "Yucky" and "Mucky" are phlegmy, green twins who like to stick together. With Venus Flytrap-like pinchers, "Squeezer" and "Teaser" pass the time by playing monster games. Brown's detailed mixed-media illustrations bring these crazy creatures, who gaze out directly at readers, to life. VERDICT Frightfully funny. Children will scream for repeated visits to The Little Shop of Monsters.—Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canada
