Tales from Lovecraft Middle School series:
The Slither Sisters
Substitute Creature - coming September 2013
DON'T BE FOOLED by his friendly smile, his perfect manners, or his shiny red apple. Student council president Howard Mergler is actually a sinister bug-monster in disguise—and he's summoning swarms of roaches, wasps, fleas, and head lice into the corridors of Lovecraft Middle School! Twelve-year-old Robert Arthur is the only student who can stop him--but he'll need help from his best friends: the school bully, the school ghost, and an extremely courageous two-headed rat.
This third novel in the Lovecraft Middle School series begins right where Professor Gargoyle and The Slither Sisters ended—with more action, more adventure, and more outrageous monsters!
"So you're not a zombie."

In-a-word(s): night of the critters
Still enjoying this series with this latest addition. I like the friendship development and learning more about what is "behind" Lovecraft Middle School.
I am drawn to this series because of the combination of the awesome morphing cover (see it in action here), illustrations on the inside and short quick storyline.
