Case File 13 #2 Making the Team

 

Case File 13 #2: Making the Team by J Scott Savage

About the Book: With thrills, chills, and laughs on every page, plus a boy-girl rivalry that will leave you in stitches, this is one frighteningly funny book you don’t want to miss. In this second book in a middle grade series that’s “sure to please young readers looking for a thrill” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review), three monster-obsessed friends must take on a mad scientist who is literally stitching together a Frankenstein-esque football team.

Nick, Carter, and Angelo are back to monster business as usual. They’re even filming a monster movie for a school project on Building a Brighter Tomorrow. (There’s a connection there somewhere, they swear.) But when a new private school arrives in town boasting a football team that’s inhumanly good, the boys start to suspect they may have a real monster mystery on their hands. And what’s worse, they may need help from their girl rivals, Angie, Tiffany, and Dana, to get to the bottom of it.

You hold in your hands a most frightening file.

Through extensive research and firsthand accounts, I have compiled everything you need to know about case file 13. In this book, you will find the next grisly adventure of three boys whose monster knowledge led them down a path so dark, so dangerous—

Excuse me, aren’t you forgetting about the three girls who knew way more about monsters?

Get real, Angie. It’s not his fault you girls are so forgettable.

No fighting! You all showed bravery in the face of ghosts, grave robbers, and even mad scientists in this volume alone, and that proves you’re all extraordinary.

It’s just that the boys are more extraordinary.

Nick!

Are we quite finished? Now, let’s see, where was I . . .

You hold in your hands a most frightening file, chronicling the adventures of three awesome boys whose superio monster knowledge made them way cooler than the girls. This is the second volume. Read on if you dare. . . . http://www.harpercollins.com/9780062133311/case-file-13-2-making-the-team

 

 

Case File 13 #3 Evil Twins

 

Case File 13 #3: Evil Twins by J Scott Savage

About the Book: With thrills, chills, and laughs on every page, this gruesomely funny book will leave you seeing double!

In this third book in the acclaimed middle grade series that is “sure to please young readers looking for a thrill” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review), three monster-obsessed friends accidentally unleash an army of evil twins onto their hometown.

Nick, Carter, and Angelo have defeated the Zombie King, taken down a mad scientist, and, toughest of all, even learned to cooperate with their monster-loving girl rivals. But when the three friends head on a camping trip with Nick’s parents, a fateful hike in the woods leads the boys to a creature that can change its shape at will and even mimic the boys’ voices. Carter sneaks the little guy into his backpack and takes him home, and so the trouble begins. And in this frighteningly funny adventure, trouble always comes in twos. . . .

Starring a trio of characters young readers will want for their own best friends, it’s easy to see why School Library Journal raves about this series’ “blend of mystery, realistic fiction, action, and humor will appeal to a wide variety of readers.”

I have solved countless clues and numerous riddles, all to bring you the answers you seek regarding case number 13. Now, in this file, you will find the next chilling chapter in the adventures of Nick, Carter, and Angelo, three monster-obsessed boys whose trip into the woods turned so ghastly, so foul—

Hold up, Mr. B! We don’t want to scare them away. I thought the camping trip was pretty rad, all in all.

But Nick, aren’t you forgetting about the Sasquatch footprints, the lost homunculus, and—scariest of all—the Evil Twins themselves?

Nick? Who’s Nick? Oh, right, that’s me. . . . I’m not a doppelgänger of Nick at all, I swear.

Uh-oh. Tell you what, “Nick,” you stay right here, and I’ll be right back.

No problem . . .

Bio: Recently, J. Scott Savage took his family on a much-needed camping trip to an undisclosed forest. The trip must have been restful because he is now getting twice as much done. In an odd twist, he also now claims to have eight children: Good Erica, Evil Erica, Good Scott, Evil Scott, Good Jake, Evil Jake, Good Nick, and Evil Nick. His wife, Jennifer, was recently spotted at Disney World and Disneyland on the same day. And Pepper barks twice as much. This is the third volume in his Case File 13 series.

  1. We have the first book in this series and my 10-year-old and my nephews (younger and older) both loved it. From the covers, they’re not books I would think to grab for them, but they said it was hilarious and clean while still being slightly creepy. Perfect for boys. 🙂
