By Mark Tatulli
Meet Desmond Pucket–master of mayhem! Will his monster-y special effects pranks get him kicked out of middle school before the class trip to Crab Shell Pier? Or will Desmond be able to keep his monster magic in check?
“Tatulli’s entry into the comics/fiction-hybrid market is one of the best… The target audience will snap this up and beg for more.”
— Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“This is full of ghoulish fun, and fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid probably won’t want to miss it.”
— School Library Journal
“Desmond Pucket neatly fills a gap for our readers–it’s a step more sophisticated than Diary of a Wimpy Kid but appeals to that reader. It’s also so great to have a Halloween/monster/scary stuff series to offer boys that is not Goosebumps.”
— Rebecca Waesch, Children’s Product Manager, Joseph-Beth Booksellers
