About the Book:
When a giant nor’easter dumps a blanket of snow on the village of
Dunwich, Massachussetts, Robert Arthur and his friends find themselves
marooned inside Lovecraft Middle School. The kids have no choice but to
spend the night—while snacking on cafeteria food, sleeping on classroom
floors, and facing off against a mysterious substitute teacher who may
have a sinister secret. The latest adventure in the Lovecraft Middle
School series features more adventures, more outrageous monsters, and
another terrifying lenticular cover!

This is the fourth book in the Lovecraft Middle School series. I have
not read the first three, but I was still able to read this book without
any confusion. If you are thinking about getting this book for a kid,
though, you should start at the beginning with Professor Gargoyle.
This book wasn’t nearly as creepy as I had expected it to be, but it is
intended for kids, so I can’t really complain about that. I think that
the book could have been better developed overall, but it was still
entertaining and fun for Halloween. This book would be good for kids
that like spooky stuff without it getting overly creepy or weird.
