“Two-headed monsters, giant tentacles, angry demons – Lovecraft Middle School
is great creepy fun!”
–Ransom Riggs, author of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
This second novel in the Tales from Lovecraft Middle School series begins right where Professor Gargoyle ended. Seventh-grader Robert Arthur has discovered that two of his classmates are actually sinister snake-women in disguise. Even worse, his new middle school is full of “gates” to a terrifying alternate dimension – a haunted mansion full of strange spirits and monstrous beasts. For Robert to protect his teachers and classmates, he'll need to return to this haunted dimension with his best friends Glenn and Karina. Can they uncover the secrets of Lovecraft Middle School before it's too late?
The Slither Sisters features more bizarre beasts, more strange mysteries, and more 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 sisters transforming into their slithering alter egos. You won't believe your eyes!
The Slither Sisters
picks up right where Professor Gargoyle
left off. With his new friends Glenn and Karina (and the help of a two-headed rat), Robert will delve deeper into the mysteries of Lovecraft Middle School and its creepy parallel dimension, the haunted Tillinghast Mansion.
As our story opens, Robert knows that his classmates Sarah and Sylvia are acting strangely. Like Professor Gargoyle, they look completely human on the outside -- but their behavior is anything but normal. Robert soon discovers that the sisters have accessed a secret "portal" that leads into Tillinghast Mansion. Will Robert and Glenn have the courage to follow them into a haunted house? And will they manage to come back alive?
Like Professor Gargoyle, The Slither Sisters is another eerie creepfest that's perfect for kids ages 10 and up.
