Tales from Lovecraft Middle School series:
Professor Gargoyle
The Slither Sisters - just released: January 15, 2013
Teacher's Pest - release date: May 7, 2013

Strange things are happening at Lovecraft Middle School. Rats are leaping from lockers. Students are disappearing. The school library is a labyrinth of secret corridors. And the science teacher is acting very peculiar – in fact, he just might be a monster-in-disguise. Twelve-year-old Robert Arthur knew that seventh grade was going to be weird, but this is ridiculous!

Professor Gargoyle (Volume I in the Tales from Lovecraft Middle School series) is full of bizarre beasts, strange mysteries, and nonstop adventure. It's perfect for readers ages 10 and up. Best of all, the cover features a state-of-the-art “morphing” photo portrait – so you can personally witness the professor transforming into a monster. You won't believe your eyes!


My two-bits:
In-a-word(s): man flesh
From the packaging to the premise, I enjoyed the start of this book series.

The morphing images on the cover from normal to creepy really captures the eye and imagination. (see how the cover works here)

The inside of the book also includes illustrations for some of the chapters which I consider a special treat to any book.

Being the first book in the series you get a good sense as to interesting and unusual things to come and wonder about. And the intro to the main character is established well - Robert is very likable.

  1. The covers certainly make these books stand out! I've had students yelp in surprise after passing them on the shelf!
