Children's LiteratureThe Shluffmuffin children are thrilled that their father is no longer dead, but they are disappointed to discover that he has returned as a zombie. Their newly adoptive dad, Professor Spydelle, convinces the zombie dad to drink an elixir of life. Unfortunately, the Shluffmuffin's have new fears, as the potion turns their zombie dad into a vampire dad. In addition to that, the Shluffmuffin children discover that the two giant ants in their neighborhood have concocted a scheme to enslave the entire human race. Can the young Shluffmuffins prevent the dangerous ants from taking over the earth? Can they prevent their dad from biting their necks and help to turn him into a regular dad? Although the premise is exciting, you will not find the answers to these questions in this book. This book is entertaining, fast paced, and funny, but there is not an ending. You will need to read the next book in the series to, hopefully, learn the conclusion. Some readers won't mind this but others may feel cheated. This is book three in the "Secrets of Dripping Fang" series. Dan Greenburg is also the author of the popular "Zack Files" series. 2006, Harcourt, Ages 8 to 12.
