In Brandon Dorman's original artwork, Bim's skin is green and has purple eyes. However, when the book was released, his skin was changed to orange. The book was later reprinted to have Bim's skin as green, and his eyes were changed from purple to orange. Other changes include the artwork being more zoomed-in, and a "SPECIAL EDITION" banner was added underneath the Goosebumps HorrorLand logo.
