Nobody wants to adopt the Shluffmuffin twins. Wally's feet stink something awful, and Cheyenne is allergic to everything. Then why are the Mandible sisters so eager to take them home? And what sort of old maids would choose to live in a place called Dripping Fang Forest, where zombies wander the woods singing "Itsy Bitsy Spider" and ten-foot-long glowing slugs want to suck the feet right off your ankles?

Would it seem ungrateful of Wally to point out the Mandible sisters' extra arms? Or to question their all-chocolate, all-the-time menu? Or, um, to venture into the cellar, where the twins have been told to NEVER, EVER, EVER go?

Yeah, perhaps that last bit was a mistake. Now there's nothing left for the Shluffmuffins to do but run--run for their lives!

Review: The Onts (Secrets of Dripping Fang #1)

User Review  - Goodreads

This is the first book in the Dripping Fang Forest series. I had a lot of fun reading this with my seven-year-old. It was full of humor and adventure, and the illustrations were fabulous. He wants to collect the whole series now. Read full review

I like this book. It is really good, but it is not all that scary just different than all the other supernatural books, but it is still a good book. Read full review
