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)
