It, also known as Pennywise the Dancing Clown or Bob Gray, is the title character of Stephen King’s 1986 horror novel It. The character is the entity that preys upon the local children of Derry, Maine roughly every twenty-seven years, using a variety of powers that include the ability to shape shift, manipulate, and go unnoticed by adults. King came up with the idea for Pennywise after asking himself what scared children “more than anything else in the world”, which he felt was clowns. The character has been described as one of the scariest clowns in popular culture. Source: Wikipedia
