Gr 3-7–A Goosebumps-esque tale of scary proportions that will delight and engage readers. Wolver Hollow is not what it seems, but the adults seem too busy to care. One night while watching a spooky movie, Parker and Lucas get interrupted by a spider the size of a dog. Soon, the babysitter and the pizza delivery guy are being held hostage, and the kids must figure out how to stop it. Is it really true that spiders are more afraid of you than you are of them? Parker and Lucas are about to find out. The characters in this story are likable, and the detailed illustrations enhance the action. The plot is simple but maintains a quick pace. With a few intense cliff-hangers in the mix, readers will have a hard time putting this one down. Although this book is in a series, it can be read out of order. No race is mentioned.
VERDICT Fans of horror, paranormal, mystery, and things that go creep in the night will want to pick this one up. Recommended for most library collections.–
