My Thoughts I just finished re reading the first book in this fun series Professor Gargoyle review linked here where formatting allowed These are very uick reads since they’re illustrated and large print on small pagesThings are becoming weirder at Lovecraft Middle School Robert is learning a few people he can trust but there is always treachery lurking where it is least expected Just brilliant and a lot of funI was a little annoyed by an illustration of a snake with rattles on its tail and fangs when the text was talking about a boa Boas do not have fangs and only rattlesnakes have rattles on their tails That was just sloppy on the part of the illustrator trying to make the snake look menacing Other than that the illustrations were fun; I especially liked the first one in the book of the principal’s office with a huge worried portrait of HP Lovecraft himself behind the secretary’s desk Mr Loomis however looks like just a taller student rather than a teacher in the one toward the back where he is featured At first I was confused and thought it was Howard MerglerIf you enjoy a fun adventure with Lovecraftian overtones you can’t go wrong with this enjoyable middle grade adventure series I know I’m eager for the third book in the series Teacher’s Pest due out in May 2013 This time I’ll try to be patient to see if it comes out through Vine before I buy it for myself; if I had waited one week I could have had this one free through Vine but no I had to be impatient and buy it myself Well I finished book one and two today I really like this series I kind of wish the book was a lttle bigger It is a children's book so I am happy that it is short and sweet This book has filled in some of the parts of the fourth book talked about Well if I did not read the fourth book first I would not of know some of the stuff that has happen It is all good and nothing really big was let out of the bag I now know how all the characters have met and play together Well tomorrow I should be able to finish the third book and maybe the fourth one I only have 30 pages left to read And then I will find out what Robert has chosen to do TRIGGERS view spoilermurder hide spoiler Haunted mansions sneaky mind controlled children demons and crazy professors the Tales from Lovecraft Middle School series has it all In the second book The Slither Sisters there are appearing gates into another dimension where monsters lurk and it's up to Robert and his friends to save the town When reading the first book in the series Professor Gargoyle I was entertained but not very thrilled In The Slither Sisters the action picks up immediately making it a much satisfying read than its predecessor It has a lot of adventure jumping through gates the heroes finding themselves in sticky situationsI liked that in The Slither Sisters the bad guys got a bit background I prefer my villains to be just a bit of a dark grey than a stark black It was nice to see the crazy professor from the view of someone very close to him can you tell I'm trying very hard not to spoiler anything? There are some new characters introduced in this part but it actually helped the story along instead of bogging it down The characters don't really grow throughout the book but they might throughout the series There was some romantic development that I thought was very sweet and age appropriate I very much enjoyed The Slither Sisters and I think these books would be perfect for both boys and girls that don't mind a bit of spookiness in their books Full review to come The Good Stuff Fast paced storyline would keep even the most reluctant reader engaged and not wanting to put book down Twisted and funny Alot of Whedon type humour Kids act like kids their age should well except for the paranormal stuff Many of the adult characters are realistic and not idiots yes I know its a pet peeve Really how many of us at one time didn't think their teachers were evil I'm still pretty sure Mr Turcok was Robert is a likeable character and many will understand his predicament lots of changes when you go to a new school and don't know anyone Also growing up is hard I'm sorry even if this series sucked I would pick them up for the cover alone my preschooler plays with them for hours In Slither Sisters mentioned a little in Professor Gargoyle there is a fantastic Librarian character Ok they made her old and a tad frumpy but she still is an awesome character Great moralsmessages worked into the story without making it obvious love an author who can do that effectively The library is awesome I totally want to work there Will definitely be picking up the next book in the series will be saving them for Jesse to read when he gets older and hopefully Jake will eventually read them ooThe Not So Good Stuff The cover might freak out the less adventuresome reader aka my son won't even pick it up he would love the story Do you have any idea how many post it notes I used while reviewing and how hard it was to just pick only 6 uotes since I am reviewing both at onceFavorite uotesPassages He knew the only thing embarrassing than sitting alone at his new middle school would be sitting with his mommy from Professor GargoyleThese can be filled with downloaded books and checked out from the library as long as you are very careful with them of course Personally I'm a little old fashioned I still prefer the feel of a real book with real pages The best feeling in the world if you ask me But we have to embrace the future don't we children? Professor GargoyleNo one chooses to go to the principal's office Glenn continued You avoid this place You don't volunteer to come here and hang out The Slither SistersBut I can't win Robert insisted I'm not a leaderMs Lavinia shrugged Well I'm afraid you need to become one The Slither SistersIf my brother learns I'm helping you he'll rip my head off she said And that's not what your language arts teachers call hyperboleWho ShouldShouldn't Read Perfect for the reluctant reader This is one that would even appeal to the stronger middle school reader as it is just such a fun and wicked read Adults will even get a kick out of the series I sure did but lets face it I'm not really an adult even though I am 42475 Dewey'sI received The Slither Sisters from Random House in exchange for an honest review I purchased Professor Gargoyle because no matter what I always have to read a series in order but you don't have to read them in order I didn’t realize last time I read this that one of the main characters is named Robert Arthur Incredibly cool nod to a great author who roped me into YA horror with the Three Investigators Also I can’t help but think that the titular sisters whose names are Sarah and Sylvia and always mentioned in that order are a nod to Shel Silverstein another YA author who leans to horror often and his Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout who would not take the garbage out Additionally the Mythos namechecking is strong and deep in this one Tillinghast Tsathoggua Wilbur Whateley During the gap between the first book and this one for me I have done a lot diving into the Mythos so the name checking was evident to me I can see this being a great way for parents to introduce the concepts and frames to their mid grade readers However they only occasionally related in than a passion fashion to the source materialIn the end however this feels like a mid grade book that doesn’t talk effectively to adults I’d recommend it to parents of children in the right age bracket who want to entice them over into the dark Everyone knows middle school is hell This is especially true at Lovecraft Middle School where the usual bullies popular cliues and daily humiliations have added extra monsters and gates to the netherworldsFor such a short book the plot is nicely twisty and the writing is light and humorous albeit with some definite creepy moments I must admit the ending had a surprise for me It's a good set up for #3 but also allows this one to have a solid ending not stop on a cliff hangerIf you know a late tween or young teen who you know will love A Lee Martinez when she's older this looks like a great series for them And you might want to read them yourself firstVery enjoyable I received the book for free through Goodreads First ReadsI haven't read the first in the series but am looking forward to reviewing this book before I let my 13 and 9 year olds read it Thank you First ReadsMy 13 year old son finished this book in one day He LOVED it and wanted to tell the rest of the family all about it before we read it It looks like we will be buying books in this series Thank you first reads There BACK Robert Glenn Karina are facing monsters in the second book of the LoveCraft middle school series and it was just as exciting if not exciting than the first D D can't wait for the next book x
