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!"

Raves & reviews:

Praise for The Little Shop of Monsters:

"Frightfully funny. Children will scream for repeated visits to The Little Shop of Monsters." -- School Library Journal

"Readers are sure to visit this shop again and again for its fantastical creatures and its slightly sinister tone." -- Kirkus

"Readers looking for friendly, cuddly monsters should shop elsewhere—as Stine ominously reminds readers, 'When you come to the Little Shop of Monsters, you don’t choose a monster... a monster chooses YOU!'" -- Publishers Weekly
