Goosebumps Wiki


Goosebumps Monster Survival Guide was released as a tie-in to the Goosebumps movie. It features Zach Cooper informing the reader on how to survive an all monster invasion. The book consists of information on all of the Goosebumps monsters featured in the movie (although it excludes seven of the monsters).

The cover has three photos, one of Will Blake, The Giant Praying Mantis, and The Abominable Snowman, the top of the book has three Lawn Gnomes and a pair of strangely green Pumpkin Head hands.

International releases



  • Despite the fact that Zach had supposedly written this book, he refers to himself in the third-person in the "KNOW YOUR MONSTER" sections.
  • Rocky and Dennis are mentioned.
  • A hardcover edition of this book with a different cover containing the DVD of the Goosebumps film was released as a limited edition.
  • Even though she appears in the movie, Nila Rahmad is mentioned during Prince Khor-Ru's chapter yet does not have a chapter of her own.
  • The Swamp Monster from How to Kill a Monster is accidentally identified as a Mud Monster from You Can't Scare Me!
  • Some monsters in this book have slightly different designs to the ones used in the film. This is likely due to the fact that concept art was used in some cases.
  • The Cuckoo Clock, The Snake Lady, The Invisible Boy, and The Annihilator 3000 don't have much information, since each of their chapters are only one page long.
  • Slappy has the most pages of any monster featured in the book.
