[I received this book for review from the publisher. This in no way affects the thoughts expressed in my review.]

Sometimes, I like to read middle grade books just for fun! They’re often light-hearted and funny, filled with quirky characters and easy-to-follow stories. One series that I’m really enjoying is Tales from Lovecraft Middle School, as it offers a magical story filled with paranormal creatures and set in a peculiar little school. These books are really quick reads for me, but I really enjoy them. Plus, it’s a major bonus that they have illustrations and those cool covers!

The Slither Sisters and Teacher’s Pest are the second and third novels in the series. To let you guys in on just what’s happening in either novel might spoil the series, but suffice it to say that Robert and his friends Glenn and Karina are faced with a whole new host of creepy paranormal creatures to deal with. The creatures and the magical world they are from are highly imaginative, and this creativity is a strength that this series possesses. I particularly like the fact that we keep learning more about the supernatural stuff!

The other reason that I enjoy this series is because Gilman manages to incorporate “normal” things into the unusual story. There are things like running for class president or going to dances or dealing with girls and friendship woes, and I loved that. It balances out the craziness of the paranormal stuff quite nicely, and I think that was smart thing to do.

I really enjoy reading the Tales from Lovecraft Middle School, mostly because the books make me laugh, keep me entertained and are also quick reads. I’d highly recommend this series for younger readers, especially readers who like crazy, zany stories and all sorts of creatures. I’m looking forward to the next novel in the series, and seeing what happens next to Robert, Karina and Glenn.

Online tools are the biggest resources companies have to reach a huge audience simultaneously, and the bigger the audience is, the better the tool. Social networks like Facebook and Twitter have gained marketers' recognition as advertising outlets, but YouTube is close behind in terms of visitation and allows businesses to market their products through online video.
