Review: Teacher's Pest
Teacher's Pest by Charles Gilman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Book Info: Genre: MG Fantasy
Reading Level: Middle Grade (12 and up)
Recommended for: Fans of Middle Grade fantasy, Lovecraftian fiction, the series
Book Available: May 7, 2013 in hardcover or Kindle format
Trigger Warnings: Insects. Lots and lots of insects.
My Thoughts: I really like this series; it's just so much fun! Karina, Glenn and Robert never know what will go wrong next or who will be lost next to the sinister forces of Crawford Tillinghast.
These books are fast and fun reads for the adult reader (it took me just a bit over an hour to read my copy), but are entertaining, and I think readers young and old will enjoy these stories. I'm definitely keeping my eyes open for the next, scheduled for release this fall!
Series Information: Teacher's Pest is the third book in the Tales from Lovecraft Middle School series of fantasies.

Synopsis: 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.
