Summary

The Vanderbeekers have always lived in the brownstone on 141st Street. It's practically another member of the family. So when their reclusive, curmudgeonly landlord decides not to renew their lease, the five siblings have 11 days to do whatever it takes to stay in their beloved home and convince the dreaded Beiderman just how wonderful they are. And all is fair in love and war when it comes to keeping their home. A modern classic in the making reminiscent of the Penderwicks series, The Vanderbeekers of 141st Street is about the connections we make and the unexpected turns life can take.

Summary

It's Thanksgiving time and Room Nine is getting ready for their very own Thanksgiving feast! There's even a contest to see which room can write the best thankful list. The winners will get a pumpkin pie! Only it turns out being thankful is harder than it looks. Because Junie B. is not actually thankful for Tattletale May. Or squash. Or scratchy pilgrim costumes. And pumpkin pie makes her vomit, anyway. (But Junie B. is thankful for yummy cranberry sauce that's shaped like a can. And biscuits that explode from their can. And nipsy doodles!) Will Room 9 win the disgusting pie? Can May and Junie B. find common ground? Or will this Thanksgiving feast turn into a Turkey Day Disaster?

Summary

Nancy finds herself a Christmas mystery in this super special 18th book of the Nancy Drew Diaries series, a fresh approach to the classic mystery series.  Nancy Drew’s dad surprises her with a trip to a beautiful New England ski resort for Christmas break. Nancy is so excited. What could be better than a whole week of skiing and five-star dining?  But no vacation can go smoothly when Nancy is involved. On her very first run down the slopes, Nancy hits a bad patch of ice and takes a serious tumble. A doctor sends her back to the hotel in a cast and mandates 12 days of bed rest. That means no long car trips back to River Heights and 12 days of sitting around. Luckily, there’s still the five-star dining and beautiful views.  Just hours into her convalescence, Nancy witnesses something very suspicious through another hotel room window. And when she presses the concierge, she learns there have been mysterious break-ins throughout the hotel. It’s clear someone has been going into guests' rooms but, as far as anyone can tell, nothing has been taken. Nancy can’t resist - she has to investigate. Only trouble is, she’s still bed-bound.  Taking some cues from Home Alone’s Kevin McCallister, Nancy devises some clever schemes to get her investigating done from her bed. But for all her plans, Nancy still can’t find the source of the break-ins. Or the purpose. What’s worse the mood of the hotel has turned decidedly un-merry. People are leaving in droves, and the jolly hotel owner is worried about the hotel’s success.  With all the odds stacked against her, can Nancy solve this crime in time to save Christmas? Or is this one Yuletide she’ll wish to forget?

Summary

Holiday mischief abounds in this third book in the middle-grade series that feels like The Secret Life of Pets meets Toy Story. It's the holiday season at Good Dogs doggy day-care! Lulu takes some time off from growing her Instagram fame to enjoy Jasmine's family, King and Cleo learn their family is about to grow some more, and Napoleon can't help but brag about his family's eight nights of presents. But Hugo has the biggest challenge of all. His new puppy brother, Waffles, starts talking about how "Santadoodle", Santa's dog, puts presents for dogs into their owner's shoes on Christmas morning.  Hugo is skeptical at best: He's never heard of Santadoodle and never found presents in his humans' shoes that he didn't put there himself. But he can't bear for Waffles to be disappointed, especially on Christmas. That means the Good Dogs have a new chaos-filled mission! This third installment of the Good Dogs series brings fun holiday cheer and lessons about expectations, adapting to change, and appreciating what you have.

In all the confusion, Bettina's family neglects to set out the traditional bowl of Christmas rice pudding for the tiny nisse who are rumored to look after the family and their livestock. No one besides her grandfather ever believed the nisse were real, so what harm could there be in forgetting this silly custom?

Was, wenn im Krippenspiel nur eine Rolle als drittes Schaf von links drin ist? Sabine Ludwigs großartige Geschichtensammlung rund um die Weihnachtszeit ist genauso frech, lustig, nachdenklich und feierlich wie das echte Leben. Gelesen von Sabine Ludwig, Muriel Bielenberg, Julian Greis, Ursula Illert, Leonie Landa, Liza Ohm, Toini Ruhnke und Jens Wawrczeck.

Bruno è un ragazzo normalissimo, a cui va bene tutto. C'è solo una cosa che non può proprio sopportare: il Natale! Questo perché suo padre Christian, che lavora presso un'azienda di spedizioni, nel periodo di fine anno ha sempre moltissimo da fare e nei giorni festivi non vuole più saperne di tutte "le follie del Natale". Specialmente i regali sono un incubo per lui! Un giorno Bruno torna a casa da scuola e viene attirato in soffitta dal profumo allettante di biscotti appena sfornati. Lì una misteriosa ragazza di nome Belana gli scodella, insieme ai biscotti alla cannella e al punch di mele, delle strane storie. A quanto pare la madre di Belana e il padre di Bruno si conoscono fin da bambini, e un tempo hanno trascorso insieme delle bellissime feste di Natale... e sembra anche che Bruno non sia altro che il nipote in carne e ossa di Babbo Natale! A Bruno è subito chiaro che Belana racconta un sacco di frottole, oppure lui si è solo sognato tutta la storia del loro incontro. Questa convinzione, però, viene messa a dura prova quando Bruno, il giorno dopo, si ritrova a bordo di un'auto sportiva volante, guidata da un folletto finlandese completamente matto. Naturalmente a organizzare tutto è stata Belana, che gli spiega che stanno andando al villaggio di Babbo Natale per far conoscere a Bruno suo nonno... Un divertimento natalizio per tutta la famiglia!

Vor allem die vielen Geschenke sind ihm ein Graus! Als Bruno eines Tages aus der Schule nach Hause kommt, lockt ihn der verführerische Duft von Plätzchen auf den Dachboden, wo ihm ein mysteriöses Mädchen namens Belana zu Zimtsternen und Apfelpunsch wilde Geschichten auftischt. Angeblich kennen sich Belanas Mutter und Brunos Vater schon seit ihrer Kindheit, angeblich haben sie früher gemeinsam tolle Weihnachtspartys gefeiert - und angeblich ist Bruno niemand anderes als der leibhaftige Enkel des Weihnachtsmannes!

Summary

The six Herdman children are “absolutely the worst kids in the history of the world”. They lie and steal and smoke cigars. They even burned down Fred Shoemaker’s old toolhouse. Now they’re taking over the Christmas pageant. The Herdmans have never heard the Christmas story before, and they don’t know anything about shepherds or Wise Men. When Imogene hears about the swaddling clothes, she demands to know why anyone would tie up a baby and put him in a feedbox. Leroy, Claude, and Ollie are planning on a gift that means much more than gold, frankincense, and myrrh - the ham from their Christmas basket. The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, now also a television movie, has been a favorite of children and their parents since 1972. As C.J. Critt’s spirited narration captures the lively and outrageous spin that the Herdmans put on the Nativity scene, listeners will delight in this unusual and refreshing interpretation of Christmas.

Beloved Newbery honor-winning author Tomie dePaola has embraced the legend using his own special feeling for Christmas.

Summary

If you like the Avengers, Justice League, or The Incredibles, then you'll love this family of superheroes! This new chapter audiobook series is perfect for reluctant readers. Join Peter Powers (the boy with not-to-super powers) and his friends for an exciting holiday-themed story of action, adventure, and...evil snowmen?!  Everyone in Peter Powers' family has super awesome superpowers - except Peter. All he can do is make ice cubes and freeze stuff. But it's his favorite time of year, so who cares?! There's nothing like the holidays to put people in a good mood! But after Mr. Powers vanishes without a trace, other things in Boulder City start to disappear, too. Now, it's up to Peter and his best friends, Chloe and Sandro, to search out who has a sinister heart of ice. Can the trio face the army of snowmen alone, or will the holidays be ruined for everyone? Peter Powers and the Sinister Snowman Showdown! is the fifth chapter book in a new series of exciting stories about a young boy who has some rather crummy superpowers. Each story is full of humor, action, and fun, but the charm can be found in the heartfelt message about the power of family, friends, and having confidence.  (And look for a dastardly cameo by Santa's dark counterpart...Krampus!)

The Christmas Doll

Summary

Long ago in London Town, at a time when the muffin man's cries began the day and the lamplighter ushered in the night, two young orphans lived together in the bleak, cold shelter of a public workhouse. Lucy Wolcott and her little sister Glory have no one in the world but each other. Every day, they labor from dawn to dusk stitching blankets and sacks. There is scant little to eat and the nights are cold and damp. The only ray of light in their lives comes from the stories that Lucy invents, stories about a family she barely remembers, and a lot doll named Morning Glory who, Lucy promises, is destined to return to them someday. When a deadly fever sweeps through the workhouse, the girls flee for their lives to the mean streets of London. There, they desperately try to figure out how to survive. While searching through the muck by the river, Lucy finds an old, discarded doll, which Glory is certain is the long-lost Morning Glory. But Morning Glory is no ordinary doll. And how she leads the girls to the most surprising turns of fortune makes for a heartwarming story that brims with love, hope, and the truest spirit of Christmas.

Dreidels on the Brain

Summary

At last a great American Hanukkah story! This very funny, very touching novel of growing up Jewish has the makings of a holiday classic. One lousy miracle. Is that too much to ask? Evidently so for Joel, as he tries to survive Hannukah 1971 in the suburbs of the suburbs of Los Angeles (or, as he calls it, "The Land of Shriveled Dreams"). That's no small task when you're a "seriously funny-looking" 12-year-old magician who dreams of being his own superhero: Normalman. And Joel's a long way from that as the only Jew at Bixby School, where his attempts to make himself disappear fail spectacularly. Home is no better, with a family that's not just mortifyingly embarrassing but flat-out broke. That's why Joel's betting everything on these eight nights, to see whether it's worth believing in God or miracles or anything at all. Armed with his favorite jokes, some choice Yiddish words, and a suitcase full of magic tricks, he's scrambling to come to terms with the world he lives in - from hospitals to Houdini to the Holocaust - before the last of the candles burns out. No wonder his head is spinning: He's got dreidels on the brain. And little does he know that what's actually about to happen to him and his family this Hanukkah will be worse than he'd feared. And better than he could have imagined.

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

Summary

The Herdmans are the worst kids in the history of the world. They lie, steal, smoke cigars, swear, and hit little kids. So no one is prepared when this outlaw family invades church one Sunday and decides to take over the annual Christmas pageant. None of the Herdmans has ever heard the Christmas story before. Their interpretation of the tale (the Wise Men are a bunch of dirty spies and Herod needs a good beating) has a lot of people up in arms. But it will make this year's pageant the most unusual anyone has seen and, just possibly, the best one ever.

Blue Sky White Stars

Summary

A poetic and inspiring tribute to the beauty and wonder of America's history, landscape, and symbols. With wonderfully spare, deceptively simple verses, Sarvinder Naberhaus has composed a lyrical celebration of the iconic imagery of our nation, beginning with the American flag. Each spread depicts a richly evocative tableau, from the view of the Statue of Library at Ellis Island to civil rights marchers banded together, to a spacecraft at Cape Canaveral blasting off. This book is an ode to America then and now, from sea to shining sea.

Join the adventure. Break the curse. Find your way home. A magical new adventure from the best-selling author of The Impossible Boy.  Victor is sceptical when Walter Swizwit comes to the village of Rainwater. He's the latest in a string of inventors passing through and no one wants to buy his cheap magic tricks. But Walter doesn't take rejection well and puts a curse on the village.  Only Victor is unaffected, and he must leave Rainwater for the first time in his life if he's to find the cure. Victor's path takes him past other villages that Walter has damaged and he picks up new companions on the way: Elena, handy with bow and arrow, Mo-Lan, a science prodigy and scaredy-cat Mingus.  It's soon clear that they underestimated Walter's power. Only he has the cure for his magic, and he's locked away in his castle a thousand leagues away. But he's not the only inventor out there....  If Victor and his friends can get someone more powerful on their side, maybe they can win: find Walter, break the curse and return as heroes. After all, there's no place like home....

A Christmas Carol

Summary

The timeless tale of Ebenezer Scrooge and his adventures on Christmas Eve continue to teach an important lesson, even to this day. Author Charles Dickens introduces us to the main character by painting him in a negative light, a selfish and miserly old man who will barely pay enough money to keep his office heated. When Scrooge returns home after work, the ghost of his former business partner, Jacob Marley, visits him and tells him that because of the wrongdoing he had done during his life, he has been condemned to walk in his ghost years shackled by chains. He warns Scrooge that the same fate might await him. The ghost leaves, allowing Scrooge to fall asleep. Scrooge is then visited by three different ghosts: first comes the Ghost of Christmas Past, who takes him to revisit various scenarios from his past Christmases, including one event that makes Scrooge shed tears. Next he is taken around by the Ghost of Christmas Present, who shows Scrooge what Christmas will look like this year, and he sees scenes of the Christmas dinner held by his clerk, Bob Cratchit, who has a crippled son. The final visitor is the Ghost of Christmas Yet, and while the two of them are on their journey, they overhear people speaking about a dead man and his assets. Scrooge yearns to know who has passed away, finally figuring out that the deceased man is himself. After the initial shock and a promise to change his ways, Scrooge finds himself back in his bed with a brand-new outlook on life.

Summary

The eccentric, forceful, big-hearted Grandma Dowdel is the star of the Newbery Medal-winning A Year Down Yonder and Newbery Honor-winning A Long Way from Chicago. And it turns out that her story isn't over - not even close. It is now 1958, and a new family has moved in next door to Mrs. Dowdel: a Methodist minister and his wife and kids. Soon Mrs. Dowdel will work her particular brand of charm - or medicine, depending on who you're asking - on all of them: 10-yearold Bob, who is shy on courage in a town full of bullies; his two fascinating sisters; and even Bob's two parents, who are amazed to discover that the last house in town might also be the most vital. As Christmas rolls around, the Barnhart family realizes that they've found a true home - and a neighbor who gives gifts that will last a lifetime.

Summary

Tony Robinson stars in this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of E. T. A. Hoffmann's renowned Christmas story, which inspired Tchaikovsky's ballet The Nutcracker.

It is Christmas Eve, and young Mary and Fred are opening presents from their godfather, Drosselmeier the toymaker. Mary's favourite gift is a nutcracker soldier, and she is disappointed when his jaw breaks on a particularly hard nut.

She puts him away carefully, promising that Drosselmeier will mend him - and at that moment he seems to come alive. Surely she is just imagining things. But as the grandfather clock begins to chime midnight, all her toys spring to life! Led by the Nutcracker, they rush into battle with an army of mice who emerge from beneath the floorboards - including the seven-headed Mouse King....

Hoffmann's classic children's tale is adapted by Brian Sibley (who also dramatised The Lord of the Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia for radio). Starring Tony Robinson as the Nutcracker, Edward de Souza as Drosselmeier, Eric Allen as the Mouse King and Angela Shaftoe as Mary, it is sure to delight fans of Tchaikovsy's famous ballet - and anyone who loves the magic of a good fairy tale.

Summary

È dicembre, il mese più magico dell'anno, quello in cui la neve avvolge Londra come un festone scintillante. Blanche Claus, però, non ama il Natale: senza un posto e una famiglia con cui trascorrerlo, vorrebbe solo che quel giorno finisse il prima possibile. Ma non quest'anno: quando una curiosa signora dai capelli bianchi le regala un addobbo magico, per Blanche si apre un mondo sconosciuto, popolato di elfi cocciuti e abeti danzanti. E poi c'è Rinki, la persona giusta con cui condividere un sogno molto speciale: rendere il Natale davvero indimenticabile, per tutti! Dalle strade di Londra al Paese degli elfi, la loro magica avventura le porterà fin oltre il Circolo Polare Artico, in un turbinio scoppiettante di addobbi colorati, camini angusti e pieni di fuliggine, fatine impertinenti e misteriose figure che tramano nell'ombra... Una fiaba natalizia dedicata a tutti i cuori coraggiosi, che lottano per trasformare i sogni in realtà.

Kringlewart and the Crookedest Christmas Tree

Summary

My name is Kringlewart. I am a runt of a tree elf, the size of a small kitten. My parents, who care for majestic forest trees, are 10 times my size. My father coerced my mother to drink a brew that stunted my growth, 381 years ago, so that I could only care for his accursed Christmas trees. I hate Christmas. I always drag my tree into the forest soon after the farmer plants them. I deliberately deform them so that no one would ever choose them as Christmas trees. I have saved 52 trees from this fate, but this year, I failed. My best friend, Pure Snow, hates me. We have been friends for almost 200 years. She has white fur and pink eyes, and she is the tall but stunted elfspring of the legendary Silver Lightning. She always grows perfect trees. We once spent a Christmas in one of her trees, inside Windsor Castle, where we met the newlywed, Queen Victoria. Hundreds of magical creatures lived in the castle. Like us, they could turn invisible to all but the queen. Until recently, I lived in the branches of my Esmeralda, the crookedest tree I ever crafted, in a circle of six mature fir trees that I planted over the past half century. My life is in turmoil now that my Esmeralda, covered with lights and bobbles, is dying in a London townhouse. The famous writer Charles Dickerson lives in the house with his orphaned nephew, Harry. I eavesdropped on their conversation, from within the branches of my tree. Charles told the boy that he was close friends with Father Christmas, an ancient elf over three thousand years old. I used sleeping powder to put the writer to sleep so I could talk to the boy. Harry and I chatted for some time until that most famous jolly old elf interrupted us when he and his elves popped out of the fireplace. Father Christmas has a much different life than most humans would believe, and he is due for a life change that will transform the holiday. The events of the next day - December 25th, my 392nd birthday - could change all our lives.

On This Unworthy Scaffold

Summary

Jetta is in the center of a war. With her magical power, she could save everyone, save her country...or she could destroy it all.  Heidi Heilig blends traditional storytelling with ephemera for a lush, pause-resisting commercial fantasy for fans of Tomi Adeyemi and Leigh Bardugo.  The final book in the acclaimed Shadow Players trilogy.  Jetta’s home is spiraling into civil war. Le Trépas — the deadly necromancer — has used his blood magic to wrest control of the country, and Jetta has been without treatment for her malheur for weeks. Meanwhile, Jetta’s love interest, brother, and friend are intent on infiltrating the palace to stop the Boy King and find Le Trépas to put an end to the unleashed chaos.  The sweeping conclusion to Heidi Heilig’s ambitious trilogy takes us to new continents, introduces us to new gods, flings us into the middle of palace riots and political intrigue, and asks searching questions about power and corruption. Acclaimed author Heidi Heilig creates a rich world inspired by Southeast Asian cultures and French colonialism.  Told from Jetta’s first-person point-of-view, as well as with chapters written as play scripts and ephemera such as songs, myths, and various forms of communication, On This Unworthy Scaffold is a satisfying finale to the epic fantasy trilogy. It will thrill listeners who love Claire Legrand’s Furyborn, Laini Taylor’s Strange the Dreamer, and N. K. Jemisin’s The Fifth Season.

I am, however, beset by enemies, the worst of whom is Tom John John, the buffoonish movie director. What’s more, my father is in town, working at a bar, which is obviously just a cover for our father-son crime-fighting partnership. And my dimwitted polar bear business partner, Total, wants to be reunited with his family.  I should have known it would end like this. I expected more.

A Shiloh Christmas

Summary

A rescued beagle and his boy owner seek love and understanding for their troubled small town in this holiday companion to the Newbery Medal-winning Shiloh from Phyllis Reynolds Naylor. Christmas is coming and Marty and his rescued pup, Shiloh, are sure glad about that - for their town is low on love and understanding, and they hope that the joy of the holiday will bring with it the generosity of spirit that's so lacking. It's been a year since Marty Preston rescued Shiloh from Judd Travers and his cruel ways, and since then, Marty and Shiloh have been inseparable. Anywhere Marty goes, the beagle's at his side, and Marty couldn't be happier about that. Even Judd has been working to improve his reputation. But just as townsfolk grow more accepting of Judd, a fire in the woods destroys many homes, including Judd's, and Judd's newly formed reputation. Doubt, blame, and anger spread faster than the flames - flames that are fanned by the new minister, who seems fonder of fire and brimstone than love and mercy. And why are his daughters so skittish around him? And what's happened to Judd's dogs? With Christmas right around the corner, Marty has a lot of questions, and to get them answered might just take a Christmas miracle. Phyllis Reynolds Naylor's fourth book in the Newbery Award-winning Shiloh series - following Shiloh, Shiloh Season, and Saving Shiloh - is full of heart-thudding suspense as well as comfort and joy.

Frizzy, the S.A.D. Elf

Summary

The Santa's Izzy Elves stories are not your usual picture books: older kids who enjoy playing with words and reading rhythmical verse will love them, too! One reason for this is that although these stories echo the famous 19th-century poem "A Visit from St. Nicholas", Santa's Izzy Elves are definitely 21st century, with electronic devices galore in their North Pole workshop! In this fourth story of the series, Frizzy, one of Santa's Izzy Elves, styles the hair of Christmas dollies, but misses them dreadfully when Santa takes them away on Christmas Eve. (She suffers from S.A.D.: Seasonal Affection Distress.) Frizzy decides she needs to change her job so she doesn't get so attached to the toys she works on. She starts making something completely different, but soon finds that her plan isn’t going to work out exactly as she intended!

Aggie Morton, Mystery Queen: Peril at Owl Park

1 rating

Summary

For young detective Aggie Morton and her friend Hector, Christmas becomes a lot more exciting when a dead body is found in this second book in the Aggie Morton, Mystery Queen series, inspired by the life of Agatha Christie as a child and her most popular creation, Hercule Poirot. For fans of Enola Holmes. Aspiring writer Aggie Morton is looking forward to Christmas. Having just solved a murder and survived her own brush with death in her small town of Torquay on the coast of England, Aggie can't wait to spend the holidays with her sister, Marjorie, the new Lady Greyson of Owl Park, an enormous manor house in the country; Grannie Jane, and her fellow sleuth and partner in crime, Hector Perot. Owl Park holds many delights, including Aggie's almost cousin Lucy, exciting and glamorous visitors from Ceylon, and disguises aplenty in the form of a group of travelling actors, not to mention a secret passageway and an enormous, cursed emerald. Not even glowering old Lady Greyson (the Senior) can interfere with Aggie's festive cheer. But when Aggie and her friends discover a body instead of presents on Christmas morning, things take a deadly serious turn. With the help of a certain nosy reporter, Aggie and Hector will once again have to put their deductive skills and imaginations to work to find the murderer on the loose. Filled with mystery, adventure, unforgettable characters, and several helpings of tea and Christmas pudding, Peril at Owl Park is the second book in a new series for middle-grade listeners and Christie and Poirot fans everywhere.

Santa knows there is something he wants that he has not asked for, and Luke hesitates but asks Santa for something to help him make friends. Santa delivers, in a very unexpected way, something Luke can produce at any moment in his life that quickly brings two people closer together in the first step of friendship.  This book has been called a "new Christmas classic". It takes the emphasis off the giving of toys and puts it on the giving of something meaningful to the child.

Bizzy, the Bossy Boots Elf

Summary

Bizzy (Santa’s “Right Hand Man”) is a great organizer. He not only convinces S. C. (Santa Claus) to let the depressed Izzy Elves go on a much-needed vacation, but he finds a perfect holiday spot where they can blend in - Santa Claus Lane. What he doesn’t plan on, however, is the other elves calling him “bossy boots”, or two smart boys, Henry and Miles, recognizing the Izzies despite their disguises.  Bizzy, the Bossy Boots Elf is the fifth book in Dorothea Jensen's Santa's Izzy Elves series. These modern Christmas stories in rhyming verse are modelled on the 19th-century classic A Visit from St. Nicholas.

E. Aster Bunnymund and the Warrior Eggs at the Earth's Core!

Summary

Pitch, the Nightmare King, and his Fearlings had been soundly driven back by Nicholas St. North and company in the first Guardians’ adventure. But now Pitch has disappeared completely—and out of sight does NOT make for out of mind. It seems certain that he’s plotting a particularly nefarious revenge, and the Guardians suspect he might have gone underground. But how can they find him there? Enter E. Aster Bunnymund, the only emissary of the fabled brotherhood of the Pookas—the league of philosophical warrior rabbits of imposing intellect and size. Highly skilled in martial arts (many of which he invented himself), Bunnymund is brilliant, logical, and a tunnel-digger extraordinaire. If the Guardians need paths near the Earth’s core, he’s their Pooka. He’s also armed with magnificent weapons of an oval-sort, and might just be able to help in the quest for the second piece of the Moonclipper. This second book in The Guardians series is about much more than fixing a few rotten eggs—it brings the Guardians one step closer to defeating Pitch!

The Creeps

Summary

Adventure is alive when you mess with the dead.... When her brother was alive, Elyse Korbin used to live for Halloween. Now, a year after piano prodigy Patrick Korbin's untimely death by trick-or-treating, she finds it hard to live for anything. School in Bootville is a drag, her parents have lost their minds with grief, and her best friend, Will Castle, is probably in love with her. Nothing seems to matter until the discovery of an ancient text filled with bizarre markings pulls Elyse from her mourning gloom and pushes her into a night of chilling adventure. With the help of her fellow misfits, Will and the mildly-autistic Colin Niemann, the violin-slinging Elyse decodes the spidery encryption and discovers the uncanny ability to summon Patrick's ghost from beyond the grave with her rare musical gifts. Her wiseass brother seems to relish his newly-undead status, but their tampering with the barrier between life and the death has brought back an unspeakable evil: Colonel Spicy Jack Cavendish, the legendary boogeyman whose fury almost destroyed Bootville during the American Revolution. As Spicy Jack and his trash-talking pumpkin-lantern sidekick bumble their way through the modern world, Elyse and her friends must seek the assistance of a gallery of eccentric town characters from both the present and the past in a race to unravel the mystery of Bootville's dark history, and thwart the Colonel's sinister plans to finish the job he started centuries ago. Funny, irreverent (and perhaps even...emotional?), The Creeps dishes out king-sized fun for all ages, and scoffs at those who would hand out pennies or granola bars. You deserve better than that and you know it. So, celebrate in style this Halloween, and give yourself (wait for it) The Creeps.
