A young boy who wrote joke books on an old typewriter he found in the attic
The creator of a humor magazine called Bananas
The successful author of the Goosebumps horror series for kids
All of the above!
Reader beware! The biography of R. L. Stine, author of the hugely popular Goosebumps series, is a scary-good time!
R. L. Stine began writing stories at the age of nine, after finding a typewriter in his family’s attic. (Was it a haunted typewriter? Who can be sure?) Often referred to as the “Stephen King of children’s literature,” R.L. has created some of the scariest books to have ever been passed around a campfire, leaving readers wide awake at night. With over 400 million copies of his horror fiction novels sold across the world, R.L. Stine is one of the best-selling authors in history.
