Arts & Letters Live: R. L. Stine and Marc Brown - The Little Shop of Monsters
R. L. Stine and Marc Brown met on Air Force One over a decade ago, while headed to the first Russian Children's Book Festival in Moscow. They bonded over a bowl of borscht. In The Little Shop of Monsters, these renowned children's book icons join forces again - this time in Stine's picture book debut - for a tale that is bound to make you quake and shake . . . in fits of fear and laughter.
Are you afraid of monsters? Do they make you shiver and shake and shut your eyes really tight at night? Welcome to the Little Shop of Monsters! Come on in and choose your favorite, if you dare, before one of them chooses YOU!. With a narrative voice reminiscent of The Monster at the End of This Book, but with Stine's signature spooky charm and Brown's wildly imaginative illustrations, The Little Shop of Monsters is sure to be a new favorite for all ages.
R. L. Stine is the creator of the bestselling Goosebumps series, which inspired the popular television show and feature film, as well as the Fear Street series and many other spooky tales for children. He has also written dozens of joke books for kids.
