From the Publisher"The latest in Anderson's madcap pastiche series takes on the undead of upstate New York.... The layers of nonsense grow ever thicker and funnier as our heroes encounter a haunted theater that advertises "comical skits...Ha! Ha! Ha!”, a ghost actress from French-occupied Russia (or was that Russia-occupied France?) and a giant Adirondack tarantula. Ridiculous in all the best ways."
—Kirkus Reviews, September 15, 2011
"This fifth book in Anderson’s good-humored satirical series gives new life—er, death?—to the paranormal horror novel and emphasizes the importance of reading comprehension if one is to avoid becoming a flesh-eating ghoul.… Kurt Cyrus’s black-and-white illustrations aptly combine the hair-raising with the tongue-in-cheek; e.g., zombies in matching “I’m with Stupid” T-shirts."
—The Horn Book, November/December 2011
"Anderson tucks in an oversize spider, a squirt gun that shoots holy water, and even a touch of romance, while Cyrus adds spooky illustrations to another action-packed episode in the Pals in Peril series."
—Booklist, October 15, 2011
"This kind of fresh new addition to the series—not to mention its many laugh-out-loud moments throughout—is the reason kids will want to keep checking in with Lily, Jasper and Katie to see what fresh brand of horror and hilarity they'll stumble upon next."
