Gr 4-7In this entertaining autobiography, the prolific author of horror books talks about his childhood, his dreams of becoming a writer, and his eventual success with the "Fear Street" and "Goosebumps" series. As autobiographies go, this one isn't especially dramatic, but Stine tells his story with both humor and verve. Readers get the idea that he genuinely loves his work and sincerely cares for his audience. This book is written in the same conversational tone as his fictional books. Black-and-white photos of the author, his family, and friends, as well as some of the cartoons he did as a young man, are sprinkled throughout. Also included is a list of the 20 questions most often asked by children (and the answers), a feature that should make report writing a bit easier for this author's many fans.
