After the monumental success of R. L. Stine's Goosebumps children's horror novels, this interactive spin-off was created. Stine was no stranger to gamebooks, and many of these adventures are similar in feel to the earlier Twistaplot series, being relatively straightforward branching-plot novels occasionally enlivened by a puzzle or gimmicky choice. Although all of the books are credited to R. L. Stine, it seems likely that many were ghostwritten by other authors, since style and quality varies wildly from book to book. All of the plots are rather silly, but some adventures have surprisingly sophisticated game design while others are comparatively amateurish and directionless. The first twenty-two adventures were released with colorful prismatic patterns on the front, but the remainder of the series had more traditional (and presumably less expensive) covers. The series spawned one spin-off: Give Yourself Goosebumps Special Edition, which contained some books featuring more complex gameplay mechanisms.
