Horn Book Review

Four Goosebumps stories from the 1990s are resurrected as graphic novels in this collection. Slappy, a ventriloquist's maniacal dummy, stars in the final story illustrated by Roman and acts as emcee throughout: "I get to see you tremble with dread." Each story is illustrated in full color by a different artist with mixed results. Overall, though, fans of the original horror series should enjoy this treatment. (c) Copyright 2016.
