Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What do you get when you mix together--

werewolves, vampires, mad scientists, wizards, aliens, alternate dimensions, tiny people, Transylvania, ancient curses, giant frogs, evil clones, ghosts, lawyers, shape-changers, fallen angels, journeys through hell, zombie warriors, body snatchers, and two clever kids in whose hands rests the fate of Earth?

--The craziest adventure-comedy-fantasy-mystery from bestselling novelist Bruce Coville, that's what.

Review:

"Coville offers readers not only a magnificent opening line...but an all-star cast, a creepy old mansion for an Earthly setting, magic, mad science, other worlds, and much, much, much more." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Ghosts, evil twins, aliens, an angel straight out of Dante, and a star-crossed love story are only a few of the elements in this cheerful mix of plot twists....[A] hefty supply of chuckles and shivers." John Peters, Booklist

Review:

"Coville creates a humorous and entertaining tale....The plot of this easy-read, happy-ending novel moves quickly, making it a possible favorite for young, reluctant male readers." Jennifer Good, Alan Review

Synopsis:

Anthony and his younger sister discover that the monster figures he got in an unusual box at an estate sale are alive, but they have no way of knowing that the "monsters" will lead them on fantastical adventures to other worlds in an effort to try to save Earth.

Synopsis:

Bruce Coville's most outrageous, gut-busting adventure-comedy-mystery-fantasy — now in paperback!
