Teacher’s Pest, by Charles Gilman

Teachers PestTales from Lovecraft Middle School series #3
Summary:  DON’T BE FOOLED by his friendly smile, his perfect manners, or his shiny red apple. Student council president Howard Mergler is actually a sinister bug-monster in disguise—and he’s summoning swarms of roaches, wasps, fleas, and head lice into the corridors of Lovecraft Middle School!  Twelve-year-old Robert Arthur is the only student who can stop him—but he’ll need help from his best friends: the school bully, the school ghost, and an extremely courageous two-headed rat.

One thought on “Teacher’s Pest, by Charles Gilman

  1. I think it’s a bit confusing, one moment a wasp stung someone, and then I realize this kid is talking to a ghost on a skateboard. It’s a series, and though it does stand on its own, the clarity is inhibited. Plot, though faulty, was the best quality in my opinion. The characters were fuzzy, and the setting was practically nonexistent in some parts.The writing was average, not good, not bad, and over all, the book isn’t Newbery worthy.
