“Even though a brand-new, state-of-the-art facility, Robert Arthur would trade Lovecraft Middle School for his old friends at his old school. That is, until he discovers a furry brown head with black eyes in his backpack -- make that two heads that share the same torso, feet, and tail -- that purrs like a baby kitten, but is definitely a rat! Why does a state-of-the-art building have rats leaping out of brand-new lockers, students disappearing and reappearing, and a new science teacher who enjoys hamsters for lunch? Spooky iIllustrations and a unique book cover add to the horror of the strange world of Lovecraft Middle School, and no self-respecting kid would want to miss enrolling in this exciting series.”
