R.L. Stine has been referred to as the Stephen King for children’s books, and that claim isn’t an exaggeration. Stine has written more horror-themed children’s literature than most children will probably ever read. With titles like Fear Street and Goosebumps garnering considerable interest across the world, primarily amongst children but also among certain adults, Stine has cemented his place in the history books as a children’s literature juggernaut.

R.L. Stine Awards

Stine has written so many books during his lengthy career that it was inevitable for him to garner some awards and accolades for his work, this despite some professional authors criticizing his books for being fluffy and somewhat lightweight.

Along with earning mentions in Forbes Lists in relation to the Best-Paid Entertainers and Bestselling authors in the 1990s, some people might remember the Champion of Reading Award Stine received in 2002 from the Free Public Library of Philadelphia.

He has also won the Thriller Writers of America Silver Bullet Award (2007) and the Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Awards (Three Times). While many circles of the publishing arena often ignore R.L. Stine, the impact the author has had on children’s literature and horror, in general, is unprecedented, this justifying the awards and mentions he keeps accruing when it comes to conversations about the best authors in the business.

R.L. Stine Books into Movies/TV

When it comes to life outside the literary arena, R.L. Stine is most notably known for his Goosebumps TV Series. Some people might remember ‘The Haunting Hour Volume One: Don’t Think About it’, a direct-to-DVD Movie that was released in 2007.

However, it was the 1990s Goosebumps TV show that captured the hearts and minds of children. Running between 1995 and 1998, the show lasted four seasons, delving into many of Stine’s stories before losing steam.

Because most people had put all thoughts of adaptations emerging from Stine’s work to rest, word of a movie adaption of the Goosebumps mythos in 2015 came as a big surprise.

The movie was directed by Rob letterman. Released on the 24th of June, 2015 and making $150 million, the movie was a far bigger success than anyone could have hoped. It took a different approach to Goosebumps than the Television show, using R.L. Stine as a character alongside all his works, this as opposed to simply delving into a singular story.

Rumors of a sequel to the 2015 movie have been rife.

Best R.L. Stine Books

Because R.L. Stine has written so many books, it is difficult to break his works down into a list of his very best novels. However, the books below probably best exemplify the sort of work that people have come to know the author for:

Welcome to Camp Nightmare: This is the first Goosebumps book a lot of people remember reading.

Billy’s mom and dad decide to send him off to camp Nightmoon. And right away, Billy can tell that something is wrong. The bus driver stops in the middle of nowhere, throws everyone’s luggage out and drives off, seemingly abandoning the children to certain death at the hands of fearsome creatures until the leader of the camp, Uncle Al, shows up.

Bill makes new friends, learns the rules of the camp and begins to worry about his survival when campers begin to disappear. Everyone who read Goosebumps as a child remembers this book. It is the R.L. Stine book that cemented Goosebumps in the hearts of many kids and has followed them into adulthood.

Monster Blood: Because Evan’s parents are going house-hunting in Georgia, they decide to drop him off at his 80-year old Aunt Kathryn’s place. When Evan buys a can of monster blood from the old store near Kathryn’s house, the novelty of it all wears off when the green, slimy stuff begins to grow into a threatening entity with a monstrous appetite.

This book tends to divide adults; however, children love monster blood, primarily because, at that age, the story has all those bone-chilling elements that have made R.L. Stine such a success in the literary arena. The book is almost silly and the ending is frustrating, yet the way it scares children says volumes about Stine’s abilities as an author.
