Review~ Professor Gargoyle (Tales from Lovecraft Middle School #1) by Charles Gilman

Release Date: September 25, 2012 | Age Level: 9 and up | Grade Level: 4 and up | Series: Tales from Lovecraft Middle School “Two-headed monsters, giant tentacles, angry demons – Lovecraft Middle School is great creepy fun!” –Ransom Riggs, author of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children Strange things are happening at Lovecraft Middle School. Rats are leaping from lockers. Students are disappearing. The school library is a labyrinth of secret corridors. And the science teacher is acting very peculiar – in fact, he just might be a monster-in-disguise. Twelve-year-old Robert Arthur knew that seventh grade was going to be weird, but this is ridiculous! Professor Gargoyle (Volume I in the Tales from Lovecraft Middle School series) is full of bizarre beasts, strange mysteries, and nonstop adventure. It's perfect for readers ages 10 and up. Best of all, the cover features a state-of-the-art “morphing” photo portrait – so you can personally witness the professor transforming into a monster. You won't believe your eyes! “Gilman's debut and series kick-off is great fun for fans of light horror. The changing image on the cover will snag interest, and the spookily realistic black-and-white illustrations throughout complete this slick, scary, funny package. [There are] delectable hints of age-appropriate, Lovecraftian Otherness...with none of the purple prose.” –Kirkus Reviews Review~ 4 1/2 Stars* I won a copy of Tales from Lovecraft Middle School #1: Professor Gargoyle (Strange Tales) by Charles Gilman in a giveaway on Library Thing. This book was Outstanding- I loved it~ This is a book the whole family can enjoy.... I read this book in three hours and could not put it down. The characters were fantastic and the Bad Guy was just the right amount of Evil for this book. I can not wait to continue on with this series. I'm so glad I got the chance to read this book (I was after it for awhile) I'm now going to read this book to my 12 and 9 yr old daughters. The fantasy in this book was so much fun* I can not wait to see the cover in person on book number 2- it is pretty cool :) This is a favorite of 2012 and I plan on reading this book a few times. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a light-fun-silly read which sparks the imagination. The illustrations in this book were superb and this is going to be a great series to collect* Fantastic Read~ Thank You! Reesa*** ( )
