Goosebumps: Slappy’s Tales of Horror


Goosebumps: Slappy’s Tales of Horror
Adapted and illustrated by Dave Roman, Gabriel Hernandez, Ted Naifeh and Jamie Tolagson Scholastic Inc., 2015. Graphic Novel, 172 p.

R L. Stine’s successful and creepy series has finally begun to be adapted into the graphic novel format. Slappy’s Tales of Horror consists of four of the original tales adapted and illustrated by four different author/illustrators. This adaptation stays true to the books while adding chilling illustrations that bring the stories to life in a new and eerie way. Each author/illustrator brings a unique style to each story leaving the reader satisfied having read four distinct stories. As with the original series, this graphic novel is not for younger children but will be enjoyed by older elementary schoolers who are looking for a good scare.
