Tales from Lovecraft Middle School: Substitute Creature

If there was ever a school you didn’t want to attend, it’s Lovecraft Middle School.  The School is haunted by too many creepy and ghoulish creatures to mention.  Why? Because Lovecraft Middle School is built on top of Tillinghast Mansion, which is haunted.

But here’s why I LOVE the series: it’s creepy and multicultural.  To be sure, basement tunnels full of rats, closets that warp you to another dimension, creepy weird LIBRARIANS, and snake-like people are CREEPY. With a capital Creep.  They make my skin crawl.  But what I love love love about the series is that the characters appear to be of mixed ethnicity and that’s alright with me.

Substitute Creature is especially fun! The action is so quick moving you can hardly catch your breath: our favorite heroes Glenn and Robert are trapped on the ledge of the school outside in the freezing cold in their bare feet!

Don’t take my word for it; check out my other reviews as you KNOW I’ve read all of them so far:

It seems like that poor school cannot keep a librarian employed; sounds like they need me.  If anyone is listening, can I turn in my app?

I give this particular book in the series 4 paws for fast paced action and multicultural fabulousness!
