The company will produce and distribute new animated content based on Stine’s picture book The Little Shop of Monsters, illustrated by Marc Brown (Arthur), in addition to Stine’s comedy book series, Rotten School. Lookout’s Dan Bernard and Yvonne Bernard will serve as executive producers.
“Thanks to Yvonne Bernard, Lookout Entertainment and Splash Entertainment, The Little Shop of Monsters will soon be open for business,” says R. L. Stine. “Marc Brown and I had great fun dreaming up the craziest monsters ever. We can’t wait to see them all come roaring to life in this new series. And I’m looking forward to school being in session with my most rotten book series, Rotten School, on-screen for the first time, too!”
“I am excited to see The Little Shop of Monsters come alive through animation with the talented folks at Splash and Lookout Entertainment,” Brown says. “This was my very first collaboration with my friend R. L. Stine, and it was great fun to illustrate an entire book without one aardvark. Sorry, Arthur.”
The Little Shop of Monsters invites readers to “come on in” and choose a favorite creepy, crawly, spooky, scary favorite new friend to bring home to their family. Rotten School, follows the adventures of Bernie Bridges, a fourth-grader who lives at a boarding school with his friends.
