Kidlit horror master R. L. Stein stars in this biography in the Children’s Authors series (6 titles). Young readers will learn about his early years, what inspired him to write, how he came to write his popular Goosebumps and Fear Street series, and his legacy in children’s literature. The book is filled with large photographs of the author as a young man, covers of his books, and pictures of the author at conventions and speaking on panels.

Also included are a time line of important life events, a glossary, and a QR code that leads to more information on Stein, crafts, videos, and games.
