I recently had the pleasure of reading an ARC of the book in order to provide a blurb for the back cover. I sure am glad I did! What a delightful treat, just in time for Halloween. Here’s my blurb:

“One of the most entertaining collections of mischief, mayhem, and monstrous delight ever to escape from Over There. A sure- fire winner for the middle grade crowd.”

And here is the summary from the blurb on the cover:

Lillian Lovecraft has a problem. A demonic horror from another realm has latched on to her, following her around everywhere and continually asking her for mustard. No one else can see or hear the gelatinous horror (named Frank), so only Lillian can tell when it’s trying to fit kids’ heads into one of its three mouths or flopping on top of her teacher’s head.

The annoying and obnoxious tag-along is only the tip of the iceberg. A demented genius is trying to open up a portal to Frank’s realm, catching the attention of a monstrously-evil being who can only glare out at us with his double-decker bus-sized eyeball until the portal is enlarged. As the demented genius works to rip a bigger and bigger hole in the fabric of reality, more and more horrors slip into our world–many of them not nearly as harmless as Frank.

It is up to Lillian, Frank, and her friends to somehow corral and capture these horrors and stop the demented genius before the portal is large enough to allow the being of ultimate evil to enter our world and devour all of humanity.

If your kids love stories with hysterical and beasties and crazy mayhem, this might just be the perfect gift for the Halloween season and beyond.
