“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!

      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.

              It was really interesting and fun. It had a very intriguing theme, with theories of distant lands, ghosts, and other monsters and worlds. It was about how a new school was built out of the remains of an old mansion, and it was told that the mansion was haunted. The mansion had odd experiments going on inside, with a mad scientist at work creating monsters. A new student, Robert, and his two new friends discover that their science teacher is a monster, and they must stop him. Can they?

                This book was really good. There are plot twist just about every other chapter. I would like the second book in the Lovecraft Middle School series. This book was the first. It is funny, intense, and more. I couldn't put the book down.

                  This book looks great, not a fan of the cover though. The book itself is great. It isn't to much drama and will give you a chuckle without lots of humor.

                    This book is about a school that is weird, but things happen that are too ridiculous. Rats, yikes I hate rats. But is more. There are demons and giants, too. The cover made me laugh. If you don't like creepy things, or get creeped out easily don't read this book. You can if you want to, but it would be better for you not to. For me, this was kind of creepy, but great!
