Description

Welcome to the Weenie Zone! Acclaimed author David Lubar is back with Beware the Ninja Weenies, his sixth collection of Warped and Creepy Tales--a series of spooky stories for young readers

Stranded aliens seek out Earth's most intelligent species. (Hint: It's not us.) A bully discovers the meaning of "spatial displacement." Two girls find out why you should never annoy a witch. When a swarm of sneaking, slashing, scurrying ninja weenies invades their neighborhood, a boy and his best friend find a way to fight back.

Here are thirty-three hilarious and harrowing stories that will scare you, make you laugh, or see the world in a whole new way. Find out where David got the idea for each story at the end of the book.

Don't be a weenie. Read these stories. If you dare!

"Whoever thinks the short story is dead, or that kids don't like short stories, haven't talked to any real live kids and haven't read the latest is this popular series." --School Library Journal on Attack of the Vampire Weenies

"Lubar's creativity is still going strong in these 35 short stories that present suspenseful, surreal tales. These scary stories and urban legends will delight reluctant and ravenous readers alike." --Booklist on The Battle of the Red Hot Pepper Weenies

"This book will talk itself right off the shelves, and reluctant readers will devour it." --School Library Journal on The Curse of the Campfire Weenies

"Lubar strikes again. Another winning round-up." --Booklist on Invasion of the Road Weenies
