Toy lizards come to life in this spooky tale. Perfect for middle grade readers.
When Jake Johnson hears about the Crispy Crunchy Cocoa Flakes Win-a-Bike Sweepstakes, it sounds like the contest of his dreams. All he needs to win the mean Green Lizard Machine Mountain Bike is one more toy lizard from one of the boxes of Cocoa Flakes. Jake has been tormenting and teasing his sister with the toy lizards, but it looks as if Dee Dee will have the last laugh when she opens a box of Cocoa Flakes and finds the last, contest-winning lizard—the one Jake needs. Just as Jake gets his hands on the last lizard, things take an eerie, unexpected, and frightening turn. Who could have ever imagined that a few ordinary toy lizards from a cereal box could suddenly turn into a living, breathing army of miniature monsters, capable of wreaking havoc on the entire Johnson household? Can Jake outwit the terrifying toys and save his family?
