About the Author
Before R. L. Stine made his name as the Stephen King of children's literature, he was the author of humorous fiction and an editor of Bananas magazine. He is the bestselling author of more than three hundred books, including the phenomenally bestselling Goosebumps series. It's the First Day of School . . . Forever! was Stine's first book with Feiwel and Friends.
“Stine revives his Fear Street series with a tale that brings together a group of Shadyside teenagers for a night of terror in an eerie mansion.... Aimed at Goosebumps graduates, the story is constructed in short chapters that each end with a grab in the dark or some chilling discovery, and it is replete with horror tropes that are carefully gauged to titillate or gross readers out without really disturbing them…Stine again demonstrates that he is a true master of the formula.” —Booklist
“The author's instinctive for creative kills remains strong despite a 15-plus-year absence from the series...These books are designed to be a pleasant diversion as well as fodder for nightmares...and the author doesn't disappoint.” —Kirkus
