“Two-headed monsters, giant tentacles, angry demons – Lovecraft Middle School is great creepy fun!”
–Ransom Riggs, author of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Strange things are happening at Lovecraft Middle School. Rats are leaping from lockers. Students are disappearing. The school library is a labyrinth of secret corridors. And the science teacher is acting very peculiar – in fact, he just might be a monster-in-disguise. Twelve-year-old Robert Arthur knew that seventh grade was going to be weird, but this is ridiculous!

Professor Gargoyle (Volume I in the Tales from Lovecraft Middle School series) is full of bizarre beasts, strange mysteries, and nonstop adventure. It's perfect for readers ages 10 and up. Best of all, the cover features a state-of-the-art “morphing” photo portrait – so you can personally witness the professor transforming into a monster. You won't believe your eyes!

      In this book, Robert Arthur goes to the new school in town named Lovecraft Middle School. He then finds a "gate" that leads to Tillinghast Mansion in another dimension. He then makes friends with one of his worst enemies and a ghost. They learn that Professor Garfield Goyle (his science teacher) is actually a demon named Azaroth. they get chased through the mansion and finally escape to get back to their dimension. I would love to read the next books.

          This book is cool because it is funny and it is a good read over the summer. I recommend this book to people who want to read about mean teachers.

              I did not like this book and I don't recommend it. First of all, I don't really like horror books and etcetera and I obviously noticed it in the beginning and the only reason I read it was because my friends talked me into it. And also, it talks about a professor turning into a monster and all this scary stuff so personally, this is to me a 1 star.

                  I loved this book because it was so exciting. Lovecraft Middle School is a new school where crazy things happen. Teacher's and student's bodies in the school have been taken over by demon like creatures and the new kid Robert is entangled in the middle of everything. This is a great story about how crazy middle school can be.
