This book is a great start to a fun series. I love the little drawings throughout the books. The story has engaging characters. ( )

Decent mystery and likeable characters. This is light, but I think it's a good read for reluctant or low level readers with fun content. ( )

I admit, it was the series that caught my eye: Tales from Lovecraft Middle School. I'm a sucker for Lovecraftian horror. This book had lots of promise; it was fulfilled on a middle school reader's level.

Yes, there was gentle horror for those of us used to Lovecraft -- I would certainly think it appropriate for the target audience. There was also a not-subtle message about bullying.

I've read too much in this genre to be surprised by this predictable book. However, for the young reader, I think it would be a page-turner. I certainly read it quickly.

Recommended for Lovecraftian completists and for middle-grade readers who like spooky stories. ( )

This book was a lot more enjoyable than I expected. This book was another one that I could barely out down, and that's saying a lot seeing I'm not really into Middle Grade books. Well written, characters believable, and even a little creepy.

It only got a 4 because I wasn't blown away but still loved it, if goodreads allowed for me to give it a 4.5, I would have. I will going on to the second book and allowing my 10 year old to read it. ( )

Professor Gargoyle: Tales from Lovecraft Middle School #1 Robert Arthur has been plucked out of his usual school, and placed in Lovecraft Middle School on the south side of his town. Sadly none of his friends came with him. Even worse the school bully, Glenn Torkells, did. If that's not bad enough, there's definitely something wrong with Robert's new school. Rats in the lockers, strange looking teachers, and even mysterious ooze?
 
It's okay though, Robert is no wimp. While he might have a bully problem, I loved how quick he was to take on every other crazy thing that happened to him. This first book spans a mere three weeks in Robert's new school, and what a three weeks it is! When students start disappearing, it is Robert who takes up the role of leader and sets off to make things right. He's a hero in the making, and it's so hard not to fall in love with him.
 
What really struck me though is how unapologetically Gilman mixes humor, grossness, and even a bit of horror into this book. I remember being a young reader, giggling while I read books from authors like Roald Dahl and Louis Sachar. Books that were a bit creepy, a bit crazy, and a whole lot of fun! That's what I was reliving as I powered through this book. I feel like the balance here is very well done. Best of all the ending sets things up perfectly for another book but, and here's the kicker, it actually wraps everything up too! Who knew you could have both? Thanks for that Mr. Gilman!
 
As you can see from the copious use of exclamation marks, this is a book I found utterly enjoyable. I know without a doubt that this is going to be a series that flies off the shelves. If you have a reluctant reader, put this book in their hands! The story is great, it's a quick read, and it even has a "lenticular" cover that shifts from human to monster. If that alone isn't a good enough reason to purchase, I don't know what is. Buy a copy and get ready to enter Lovecraft Middle School. ( )
