Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-7–In this companion to In the Land of the Lawn Weenies (Tom Doherty, 2003), Lubar takes kids' wishes and fantasies and shows how they might go horribly–even fatally–wrong. Most of the protagonists in these 35 short-short tales think that they cannot be surprised, which makes their shock when they meet the unexplainable more fun, and creepier. Many of the selections are told with a sly, satirical humor. Although a few pieces fall flat, the chilling ones far outweigh them. What if you discovered, for example, that when you recorded over your dad's boring videotapes of a family vacation or a school play, those events suddenly had never occurred? And what if you accidentally erased the videotape of your mother giving birth to you? Oh oh. Not for the sensitive or easily frightened, this book is perfect to hand to youngsters who want something to read after they've finished all of Alvin Schwartz's Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark titles (HarperCollins).–Walter Minkel, New York Public Library

From Booklist

Gr. 4-7. Lubar strikes again. As in his previous collection, In the Land of the Lawn Weenies and Other Warped and Creepy Tales (2003), he delivers a series of funny, often surreal short stories. In one of the selections, a boy's trip with his dad and younger brother to Take Your Child to Work Day ends disastrously when some copy-machine pranks erase a face as well as another popular anatomical copy-machine subject. In the title story, a boy finds the chilling truth about the joggers who pass unsmilingly by his school bus every day. All of the stories are fun, bite-size reads that deliver plenty of punch in just a few pages. At the end of the book, Lubar tells how he came up with the idea for each of his tales. Another winning roundup, of particular interest to reluctant readers. Todd Morning
