Our customer reviews

Reviewed by Avery, age 9 If you like Monster High or Harry Potter, you will really like this book, even if you haven't read the first one. This book is about two sisters who are snake-girls, Robert (who is new to Lovecraft Middle School and will quickly figure out this school isn't anything as it appears and is actually a gateway to another dimension), a mansion that is haunted with ghouls, monsters, and beasts, and it will be his job to help his friends return the dimensions to the right people: his friends.
