Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 1–3—Brallier's offers well-written and rather scary stories based loosely on relatable fears: things lurking under the bed; toys that come to life; noises at the window; and swallowing something that should never be found in one's stomach. Each short story closes in suspense. Open-ended denouements encourage the imagination to run wild and may even lead readers to write their own conclusions. Framed by an entertaining and intriguing introductory letter from storyteller Mister Shivers, and concluding with a bonus feature showing how to draw a one-eyed bear from one of the tales, these five short stories are reminiscent of Alvin Schwartz's "Scary Stories To Tell in the Dark." VERDICT With darkly charming, detailed, and abundant illustrations, this palm-sized volume is sure to appeal to child fans of the mildly macabre.—Lindsay Persohn, University of South Florida, Tampa --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Review

Praise for Beneath the Bed and Other Scary Stories (Mister Shivers #1):

Selected by the New York Public Library as one of 2019's Best Books for Kids!

* "Brallier's (The Last Kids on Earth and the Cosmic Beyond, 2018, etc.) strong horror chops translate well into this Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark-lite package for early chapter-book readers. Rubegni mixes high-contrast spot and full-page illustrations, positioning sharply outlined characters against smudgy charcoal backgrounds... Simplified spooks for the we-want-it-just-scary-enough crowd." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Praise for Shadow in the Woods and Other Scary Stories (Mister Shivers #2):

Selected by the Chicago Public Library as one of 2020's Best Books for Kids!

“Brallier effectively repeats the screamworthy formula established in Beneath the Bed and Other Scary Stories (2019) to add a sense of familiarity to the foreboding. Rubegni’s full-color cartoon illustrations depict racially diverse schoolchildren… The abrupt, disquieting endings mix the creepy and weird with the genuinely terrifying, creating a nice balance as readers jump bravely between stories… Easy to read but definitely not easy to forget.” -- Kirkus Reviews

Praise for The Locker Ate Lucy! (Eerie Elementary #2):

"A good fit for readers not quite ready for... Goosebumps." -- Booklist

Praise for The School Is Alive! (Eerie Elementary #1):

"The plot and twisted storyline will serve the beginning chapter book reader well. Word choice, action, and crisp sketches support the story, allowing early readers to develop ideas and easily follow the plot." -- Library Media Connection

"Give this early chapter book to readers who want something scary but aren't ready for the 'Goosebumps' or 'Scream Street' series." -- School Library Journal

Praise for The Last Kids on Earth:

A New York Times bestseller

* "Terrifyingly fun! Max Brallier's The Last Kids on Earth delivers big thrills and even bigger laughs." -- Jeff Kinney, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Diary of a Wimpy Kid

* "Middle-grade readers, particularly boys, will find Jack's pitch-perfect mix of humor, bravado, and self-professed geekiness impossible to resist... The marriage of text and illustration serves as a perfect example of what an illustrated novel can and should be." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "Terrifically funny... Snarky end-of-the-world fun." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review

* "This book provides loads of laughs... A gross-out good time with surprisingly nuanced character development." -- School Library Journal, starred review
