A girl doesn't have a date for the school dance―until her dad makes one for her in his lab. "Lily―meet Stitchy." A family enjoys a nice Thanksgiving dinner―until they are interrupted by a torrent of turkeys out for revenge. A princess meets a pea-brained suitor. And the battle of two red hot pepper weenies ends in flames.

Critically-acclaimed author and master of the macabre David Lubar returns from a journey into the darkest depths of his brain with thirty-five more warped and creepy tales. And in the tradition of the three previous Weenie collections―In the Land of the Lawn Weenies, Invasion of the Road Weenies, and The Curse of the Campfire Weenies―he reveals the inspiration behind each story at the end of the book. Don't be a weenie. Read these stories...if you dare!

      This book is great because it is a collection of stories so if don't like one you don't necessarily have to read it to understand the plot. It reminds me of a book I read when i was younger with a collection of popular folktales with slight tweaks and twists. The title of the book ''The Red Hot Pepper Weenies'' is one of the stories in the collection about two students from a school but, are both from different places. One is from New Mexico the other is from Texas. The students both test their pepper eating skills by bringing a different hotter pepper to lunch everyday. They will then both proceed to eat the pepper without making a noise or a face. They do this until the day that they both break. This also reminds me of the pointless arguments that went on at my old elementary school. Everyone would say I'm not your friend anymore and the next show up sitting next to each other at lunch.

        Have you ever heard about a hot dog getting braces? No well maybe you should read this book. My book is called The Battle of the Red Hot Pepper Weenies by David Lubar. Their setting is on our world except instead of humans people are walking and talking hot dogs known as weenies. There is not a main character in my book in every chapter there is a new story about new people in a different place in the world at different times. A girl hot dog doesn't have a date for the school dance until her dad makes one for her in his lab. A family of hot dogs enjoys a nice Thanksgiving dinner until they are interrupted by a group of turkeys out for revenge. A princess meets a pea-brained suitor in her castle and has to deal with him. The battle of the two red hot pepper weenies ends in flames and in a bad way. Someone that likes weird and dumb books would like this book series because these books are very weird and dumb in some ways. Some people don’t like books like that but some other people do like me.

          This book is a bunch of stories that are either rediculis, or terrifying. A bunch of campfire stories.
