Synopsis: A portrait of the author of the Goosebumps series, telling readers what R.L. Stine was like as a kid, how he became a writer, and where he gets his ideas

From Booklist: Gr. 4^-6. The Stephen King of children's books spills his guts at last in this as-told-to memoir, taking stabs at finding the high spots in a deceptively uneventful childhood and stints at a college humor magazine and specialty periodicals, all of which prepared him to launch his eye-poppingly successful Fear Street and Goosebumps series. Festooned with exclamation points and one-liners, his genial narrative reads like an extended version of a typical author's talk; influenced by radio, TV, comic books, and science fiction, he began creating homemade magazines at an early age, graduated at 12 to novels, and after college held a succession of jobs, including substitute teacher: "the scariest thing I ever did." Although he keeps his income under wraps, he is open about his family, work habits, and storytelling techniques; quotes fan mail; and thanks editors and coworkers; then closes by advising young writers to "read, read, read." Muddily reproduced black-and-white portraits ("Me, age eight--scary!") and hilarious pages from hand-drawn early efforts further humanize this outrageously prolific, horribly entertaining author. John Peters
