THE BATTLE OF THE RED HOT PEPPER WEENIES
THE BATTLE OF THE RED HOT PEPPER WEENIES, by David Lubar (Starscape 2009)(ages 8 and up). In his fourth Weenies collection, Lubar delivers another set of often funny, sometimes gross, and occasionally creepy Twilight Zonish short stories. From red hot pepper battles to spooky amusement park rides to mysterious things that will eat you in the night (and more), the new Weenies stories are guaranteed to amaze and horrify! (Okay, that might be a bit too much of the hyperbole, but WEENIES is a great read; and especially now that summer is upon us, the stories feel like they were absolutely meant to be read around a guttering campfire deep in the woods...) .
