Scary Summer

Scary Summer

Series: Goosebumps Graphix (Book #3)
by R. L. Stine Illustrated by Ted Naifeh, Dean Haspiel, Kyle Baker

What's so scary about camping, beaching it, or gardening?

Ted Naifeh brings his eerie, gothic illustrations to Ghost Beach, the story about a brother and sister's beach vacation that's all fun in the sun, until the kids go exploring in a dark, seaside cave.

For The Revenge of the Lawn Gnomes, Dean Haspiel's quirky pictures of a couple of kids, a pair of creepy lawn gnomes, and a big, goofy dog are perfect for this story about mischief and mayhem in a suburban garden.

Kyle Baker adds a hilarious touch of humor to The Horror at Camp Jellyjam, the story about a summer sports camp where everybody's happy, unless they lose a game. Because winning is everything at this camp — everything!
