Overview

“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
 
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!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“As always, Gilman punctuates the fast-moving action and grossout set pieces with the delicate matters of young friendships.... The 3-D cover will grab ’em. And you can reassure horror addicts more volumes are slithering our way.”—Booklist

“...an entertaining mystery that offers up plenty of danger and real suspense.”—GeekDad.com

“Good, gross and ghoulish”—Kirkus

“The lenticular covers alone makes the Tales From Lovercraft Middle School books worth buying. But the books are really good, too.”—Super Punch

Kirkus Reviews
Insectile legions led by demons from dimensions beyond threaten poor beleaguered Lovecraft Middle School. When last readers left seventh-grader Robert Arthur, he had just saved the students of LMS (and by extension, the world) for a second time from the encroachments of Cthulhuian otherness and the insanity of crazed physicist Crawford Tillinghast. Unfortunately, Robert had also helped one of Tillinghast's minions get elected student body president. Now that president, Howard Mergler, seems to have a secret plan to further his master's scheme to take over first the school and then our whole dimension. Only Robert, his two-headed rat, his erstwhile bully Glenn and ghost girl Karina stand in the way. Glenn's acting weird (even for him), and Robert fears his mind may not be his own. Is the world doomed? Gilman's third Lovecraft Middle School title continues the unearthly adventures of Robert and his friends as they defend the school from extradimensional attack. The motion-activated cover of Howard morphing into a giant fly will attract attention, and the often funny (and not-too-scary), easy-on-the-brain text will keep readers reading. It is more advisable with this volume than the first sequel, The Slither Sisters (2012), that readers start with the first, but it's still not vital. Good, gross and ghoulish. Thankfully Substitute Creature's only a summer away. (Humorous horror. 9-12)

    I started this book as soon as I could because of how much I loved The Slither Sisters. Teacher's Pest was probably the most different of the three. It revolved more about Glenn and Karina, and it was great to find out more about the two. Karina was always just a "ghost", but this book really made her feel more real. We knew close to nothing about Glenn's family, but it's in this book where we actually find out more about his personal life. Let me give you a piece of advise. Do NOT read this book while eating, because there are many disgusting images in this book. Looking at the cover, you can obviously assume that you will encounter a lot of bugs in this read. Let me tell you, I hate bugs, and I was really disgusted at some parts during this book. *shivers* Anyways, the plot wasn't as great as the second book, but I was still able to enjoy myself. One thing is for sure, I can NOT wait for the fourth book! I really want to find out what happens next, and I'm shocked at how much I actually enjoy this series. I always thought that I would never enjoy middle-grade books, but I'm wrong. If you think you're too old for middle grade, you're not! These books are just so much fun and full of adventure, you'll find yourself enjoying them anyhow!

    Reviewed by Avery, age 9
    While Teacher’s Pest wasn’t as great a read as the second book on the Tales from Lovecraft Middle School series, it is still an adventurous and mystical book with crazy action. Nerdy student council president Howard Mergler isn’t what he appears to be. On the outside he is your typical nerd boy with bow tie, big wire framed glasses, and church clothes, but on the inside he is a creepy and monstrous bug-monster that can summon bugs at will; everything from ants to head lice. EWE! Who can save Lovecraft Middle School from this creepy monster before it’s too late?
    “Imagine a queen bee with power over every bug on earth. Wasps, head lice, walking sticks, silverfish. Howard is summoning all the creatures to Lovecraft Middle School.”
    One great thing about this book are there are fully drawn pictures throughout the book which always gives the reader a little peak into the mind of the illustrator and writer on how they see the story in their own heads. While I didn’t like this as much as book two simply because it was about bugs, it was the perfect next book in the series and I hope I get to review book four.
