Meet Mary McScary. Mary likes to be scary. She scares her mom, her dad, her pets, and even a balloon! But there's just one person Mary can't scare -- her cousin, Harry McScary. He's not afraid of the usual things, like spiders, snakes, and other creepy crawlies. But Mary doesn't give up that easily, and one way or another she'll find a way to give Harry the scare of his life. . . Beware of Mary McScary!
Renowned bestselling children's book talents R.L. Stine, creator of the Goosebumps series, and Marc Brown, creator of the Arthur Adventure series, join forces once again in a spine-tingling, wildly funny picture book story featuring a fearless anti-heroine that will have kids and their parents cheering, "BOOOOOO!"
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.
