In Pumpkins County, weird things happen every day, but nobody ever makes a fuss. Nobody, that is, except the Creeps: Carol, a big-city girl new to Pumpkins County, who finds kindred spirits in Mitchell (monster expert), Jarvis (military brat with logistics know-how), and Rosario (girly girl on the outside, muscle underneath). The Creeps are on the case to figure out the spooky mysteries and still get to class on time. Last week it was a pudding monster. This week, it’s killer frogs—reanimated from the team’s biology class dissection experiment. Who’s behind the Frankenfrog attacks? The Creeps will track down the answers!
In this new creepy graphic novel series, Chris Schweizer’s art is full of the visual excitement that only the best graphic novel creators can pull off.
"An excellent complement to his prose, Schweizer's cleanly paneled art is bright and busy, ever ready with a gag that helps blend the ghastly with the goofy, making his gang's antics reminiscent of Scooby Doo...Silly fun with a smattering of science."Kirkus Reviews —
"A wide range of readers will tear through this well-written and zanily-drawn book, and they will be eager to see what wild adventures the four friends will have in the next volume."School Library Journal —
"Schweizer has created a story with just enough icky, spooky action for middle-grade readers who want horror stories but don’t want them too scary...The mixed-gender, multicultural team guarantees that this series opener will appeal to a broad range of readers."Booklist —
