Description

When a giant nor'easter dumps a blanket of snow on the village of Dunwich, Massachussetts, Robert Arthur and his friends find themselves marooned inside Lovecraft Middle School. The kids have no choice but to spend the night-while snacking on cafeteria food, sleeping on classroom floors, and facing off against a mysterious substitute teacher who may have a sinister secret. The latest adventure in the Lovecraft Middle School series features more adventures, more outrageous monsters, and another terrifying lenticular cover!

Review quote

"The perfect mix of danger, horror, and humor to keep kids interested without scaring them away completely."--GeekDad.com Praise for Tales from Lovecraft Middle School #1: Professor Gargoyle
"Two-headed monsters, giant tentacles, angry demons - Lovecraft Middle School is great creepy fun!"--Ransom Riggs, author of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

"Gilman's debut and series kick-off is great fun for fans of light horror. The changing image on the cover will snag interest, and the spookily realistic black-and-white illustrations throughout complete this slick, scary, funny package. [There are] delectable hints of age-appropriate, Lovecraftian otherness...with none of the purple prose."--Kirkus Reviews

"This first entry in a series is a fun read...The mysteries of Lovecraft offer plenty of excitement, and reluctant readers will likely stick around to see just how this story ends."--School Library Journal

"Fans of Goosebumps and other lightly creepy fare will look forward to spending more time with a series that even manages to find the dark side of recycling."--Publishers Weekly

"Middle school memories won't be the same once you jump into Charles Gilman's Tales From Lovecraft Middle School series."--Florida Times-Union

"Tales from Lovecraft Middle School is perfect for younger paranormal fans and a great way to have a good time that scares you just enough to keep the pages turning."--BookSlut

"Professor Gargoyle has all the hints and trappings of H.P.'s world, with a slight bit of danger, a good dosage of strange and peculiar monsters, and a great setting! We've all had a weird teacher during our years in school, so every young reader can totally identify with the first book in the series ... [And] the lenticular covers are amazing! ... I cannot imagine any kid walking by these books in the store or library and not picking it up for a closer look!"--Wired.com's GeekDad

"[Tales from Lovecraft Middle School] is highly entertaining."--Horror News

"The lenticular covers alone makes the Tales from Lovecraft Middle School books worth buying. But the books are really good, too."--Super Punch

"Ideal for middle schoolers or older, it's an action-packed paranormal treat, with lots of weird, unexplainable happenings."--Lansing State Journal

"These books are hilarious and gross and charming and bizarre and, basically, totally entertaining."--Ben H. Winters, author The Mystery of the Everything and The Secret Life of Ms. Finkleman, a Bank Street Best Book of 2011 and an Edgar Award nominee

"Author Charles Gilman spins a web that draws in the reader with plot twists that are occasionally jarring and alarming."--Montreal Gazette

"If you liked Quirk's earlier publication, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (and who didn't?), you'll gobble this one up. Or down. Whichever way a gobble goes."--Asbury Park Press blog

"Spooky illustrations and a unique book cover add to the horror of the strange world of Lovecraft Middle School, and no self-respecting kid would want to miss enrolling in this exciting series."--Karen Briggs, Great Northern Books & Hobbies, Oscoda, MI

Praise for Tales from Lovecraft Middle School #2: The Slither Sisters
"This fast-paced, humorous tale will appeal to fans of horror along the lines of R. L. Stine."--Brenda Kahn, School Library Journal

"Fast, fun, and adequately disgusting."--Daniel Kraus, Booklist

"[Slither Sisters is] another slightly creepy, often funny read... [that is] worth a look for fans of Spiderwickand the ever-living Goosebumps."--Kirkus Reviews

"If you like Monster High or Harry Potter, you will really like this book."--Sacramento Book Review

"These books are hilarious and gross and charming and bizarre and, basically, totally entertaining."--Ben H. Winters, author The Mystery of the Everything and The Secret Life of Ms. Finkleman, a Bank Street Best Book of 2011 and an Edgar Award nominee

Praise for Tales from Lovecraft Middle School #3: Teacher's Pest
"Good, gross and ghoulish."--Kirkus Review

"As always, Gilman punctuates the fast-moving action and grossout set pieces with the delicate matters of young friendships.... The 3-D cover will grab 'em. And you can reassure horror addicts more volumes are slithering our way."--Booklist

"An entertaining mystery that offers up plenty of danger and real suspense."--GeekDad.com
