    I have been an R.L. Stine fan since the early ‘90s. I just happened to see this book on my library’s site and thought it would just be something basic, but it was great! Tons of Stine info about his childhood and pre-Fear Street writings. Very detailed illustrations. I had no idea that MGM Studios had a Horrorland attraction! Great book for all ages of R.L. Stine fans!

    Great R.L. Stine bio for youngsters. My son (5) saw the Goosebumps movie (from 2015) and has been enjoying the Goosebumps stories ever since. I loved The Fear Street books as a t(w)een, and this book gave me nostalgia while sharing a lot of neat tidbits about Stine’s career. I didn’t know he wrote a few novels for adults!

    Who is R.L.Stine is another installment of the New York Times Bestselling Who Was series for kids.

My son absolutely loves the series with their high-quality illustrations and captivating portraits of some of the most influential people in history, and of course Stine being Jewish and starting off on his own two feet making ends meet with little to his name always makes for an excellent story in our house since that is where our family origins came from as well. His story of never giving up, doing whatever it takes to become a writer who makes his living from copyediting to even holding down a job at a financial newspaper for just one day once they figured out he knew nothing about finance made for a great story – not to mention the fact that once he started Fear Street and of course Goosebumps, he became one of the most famous, influential, richest writers of all time. A great deal of fun, Stine’s contribution is unmatched in children’s literature, and the Who Was series (in particular this one of many contributions to it by M.D.Payne) was a pleasure to read – I know I will see him dipping into it again and again, and it will share shelf space with our other great books from the series including that of Ralph Lauren and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. He is still a little too young and skittish at bedtime to go to bed reading Goosebumps (even though at his age I was devouring one a night), but when the time comes, we will know exactly how Stine got to be the master he is.

    This is a great short little biography detailing the life and key events of R.L. Stine. This biography is written in an entertaining and goofy way so I could see it being great for children or students. Also, I learned a lot of new information about R.L. Stine that I did not know from reading this biography, so I would imagine students would get a lot out of this biography. Overall, very engaging biography written in an engaging and creative way!

    I loved the Goosebumps series when I was a kid and also read some of the Fear Street books. I thought it would be interesting to learn a little more about R.L. Stine. I didn't know that he actually wrote joke books and humorous short stories before he got into the horror genre. That was a surprise. It's pretty amazing what all he has accomplished in his life and has still been a family man through it all. I'd say that's pretty commendable.

    I'm a little late to the party. Truthfully, I didn't know much about R.L. Stine. I live the Goosebumps movie with Jack Black, but it is far from accurate when it comes to Stine's life. He has lived a fascinating life. I look forward to reading more of his books. I'm a little late to the party. Truthfully, I didn't know much about R.L. Stine.
