Inhaltsangabe: "Two-headed monsters, giant tentacles, angry demons - Lovecraft Middle School is great creepy fun". (Ransom Riggs, author of "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children"). DON'T BE FOOLED by his friendly smile, his perfect manners, or his shiny red apple. Student council president Howard Mergler is actually a sinister bug-monster in disguise-and he's summoning swarms of roaches, wasps, fleas, and head lice into the corridors of Lovecraft Middle School! Twelve-year-old Robert Arthur is the only student who can stop him - but he'll need help from his best friends: the school bully, the school ghost, and an extremely courageous two-headed rat. This third novel in the "Lovecraft Middle School" series begins right where Professor Gargoyle and The Slither Sisters ended-with more action, more adventure, and more outrageous monsters.
"Good, gross and ghoulish"--"Kirkus"
"The lenticular covers alone makes the "Tales From Lovercraft Middle School" books worth buying. But the books are really good, too." --"Super Punch"
This is the third instalment in the Lovecraft middle school series and it is just as good as the first two if not better. This series keeps going from strength to strength, Charles Gilman is able to keep taking me back to Lovecraft middle school and the Tillinghast Mansion without me ever getting bored of it. First there was the demon Professor Gargoyle, then the serpent Price twins and in this book we have Howard Mergler, a supposed good kid who is actually a giant fly creature named a Shaggai. I cannot wait to see what creature Gilman creates for the 4th book. This book is a quick read and fast paced with all the fun and excitement of this first two books. We get a deeper insight into the characters in this book, we find out a bit more about their family lives and it is definitely interesting to read. There is a certain ick factor if bugs bother you but it's nothing too over the top. I give this book 5/5 stars and I cannot wait for the next book in the series. --Emma Loves Books blog, April, 2013
Wow, what a book, after months of waiting I was eager to dive back into the world of Lovecraft Middle School! The front cover is as eye catching as ever, with the character of Howard Mergler transforming into a hideous bug-monster as revealed at the end of the previous book. Lovecraft fans will find it easy to slip back into the series as the adventure picks up right where The Slither Sisters left off. Don't worry if you're a newbie, Charles Gilman makes sure that he recaps key points so that Teacher's Pest can be enjoyed without feeling as if you are being kept in the dark; after all, not every school hides gateways to another dimension! Teacher's Pest has to be my favourite book of the series so far. As this exciting instalment unfolds, the author really begins to develop the main characters in the series. Dramas at home are thrown in with the demons, monsters and creepy crawlies that make up an average day at Lovecraft Middle School. Short, action packed chapters will keep you turning the page as our heroes are faced with more outrageous monsters and terrifying situations. Yet again the very talented illustrator Eugene Smith brings the characters to life with incredible detail. Inspiring the reader s imagination, he matches Charles Gilman's descriptions brilliantly and for me, it is one of the things that make these books so unique. Teacher s Pest is a must read book for Lovecraft Middle School readers and fans of the fantastically freaky. If ghosts, monsters and the truly terrifying are your thing, then this and the other books in the series are for you! --Whatsgoodtodo dot com, May, 2013
I loved the way The Slither Sisters ended, so I couldn t wait to read Teachers Pest. In Roberts latest adventure, the school is heaving with bugs, bugs are everywhere! They aren t just ordinary bugs either, these bugs are super big and they re taking over the school. Kids are shaving their heads as super lice take over! Eww! Howard Mergler, president of the school council isn t trying to fix the bug problem, what is he up to? Why is the school nurse acting weird?... she isn t the only one acting strange, why has Glenn stopped coming for tea and why doesn t he want to be friends with Robert anymore? And does this have anything to do with the weird looking wasp that stung Glenn days before? Pip and Squeak are back, and this time they have their own mission to go on, which goes horribly wrong, leaving Pip and Squeak trapped in a burrow of gruesome insects and worst still, a Shaggai! What s a Shaggai you ask?.. Grab this book and find out! I love this series! Teacher s Pest is packed with action, adventure, mystery and thrills! I loved the ending, it doesn t end on a cliffhanger, more a sense of dread lol! I can t wait to get my hand on Substitute Creature! I just KNOW it s going to be awesome! 5 out of 5 stars! --Bigbookslittlebooks, May, 2013
