R.L. STINE (b. 1943). A haunted summer camp. A living ventriloquist’s dummy. A town cursed by the battle between two feuding families. These are key elements in books written by the scare master of American children's and YA literature. With a career spanning decades, Stine is most famous for Goosebumps and Fear Street (written for kids and teens respectively), and is a favorite among librarians and parents looking for scary stories to hand to reluctant readers.
