Mary McScary likes to scare everyone. Beware of Mary McScary. She scares her mom, her dad, her dog, her fish, there's nobody she can't scare. Except for her cousin Harry McScary. Harry's coming over to visit and Mary feels that today is the day she'll finally scare him.

Mary tries everything to scare Harry: a costume, spiders, snakes, even a hippo, but nothing works. Mary starts to feel defeated when an idea forms in her mind. There's one thing she hasn't tried, but will it work?

I was so excited to see that R.L. Stine had a children's book out. I loved the Goosebumps series as a child and was excited to be able to share this one with my daughter. I loved the illustrations and how it has the spooky element that R.L. Stine is known, but it's child-friendly.

Final Verdict: I would recommend this book to fans of R.L. Stine who want to share his stories with their children. I also recommend this to fans of spooky books, especially during the fall and Halloween season.
