Mary McScary by R.L. Stine- ESSENTIAL

Stine, R.L. Mary McScary, PICTURE BOOK. Orchard Books, 2017. $17.99. 

Mary McScary LOVES to be scary. She’ll come up with crazy disguises and dangerous tricks so that she can scare her parents and her pets, even inanimate objects because she’s so scary. The only person she can’t seem to scare, is her cousin, Harry McScary. She takes it upon herself to scare him once and for all. Unfortunately, everything that she does, just doesn’t seem to work. As a final resort she tries to kiss Harry and that does the trick. He runs right out the door. 

Marc Brown (the author and illustrator of the “Arthur books”) has created the artwork for this book and it is really engaging. The look very familiar, but have a different flair than what you are used to seeing in his illustrations. The book is very silly and has a few wild elements that my three year old loved. It’s a fun collaboration from a well known author and a well known illustrator.
