Rob Burnside's life is in ruins. After his escapades with Pinocula and his resulting outrageous lies, everyone is fed up with him. In this Creature from My Closet book by Obert Skye, Rob needs help. And his science laboratory closet is there to give him a hand. Meet Katfish, a mashup of Katniss from the Hunger Games and the Little Mermaid. This girl is strong as nails and sports a tail.

Everyone at Rob's school is excited about an upcoming riff on the Hunger Games created by Principal Smelt: the Fun-ger Games. Rob is less excited because the principal and his mom have roped him into participating. But Katfish is sticking around to help Rob out with girl advice, Fun-ger Games tips, and how to get people to stop hating him. What could go wrong?

    I recommend the creature from my closet katfish because it was really awesome and funny. My favorite character is katfish, Rob, Robs friends, Puck, Robs parents, and Tuffin. My favorite part is at the end when katfish sings for Rob.

      This book was quite good. This is funny, a tad intense, and just flat out good. I recommend it.

          I really liked the book because it was funny and the character combination was really unique (Katnis and Aerial)

            Guess what the next book is going to be about! The title will be: The Lord of the Hat. Try and guess which creature will come next, based on that title.

              I liked this book a lot, (I've read the three first books) but what they did with Katniss, I didn't. They kind of made a goofy mix-up between Katniss and the Little Mermaid, and Katniss is anything but goofy. The story-line was good, though. It's kind of like Big Nate.
