Kids can be such monsters. Literally.

A neighborhood is so boring the grown ups are turning into...well...you know. And dozens more.

A wonderful book, full of scary and creepy stories. My son read this at the age of 9 and found it fantastic. David Lubar really has a way of telling stories, and what an imagination! The book consists of 36 (unless I counted wrong) short stories about everything and anything.
Dear parents, don't worry about the contents. It might sound horrible with rats and vampires, but this author takes care of it brilliantly and the readers will be so much luckier after having read this bok. Fantasy and imagination is what we all need - thanks for giving us and our kids a hand, David Lubar! (Well, yeah, of course... we also need love, food, water, caring..., so don't bother adding that!)
Thanks, and have a lovely day!
