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.

The Vengekeep Prophecies, by Brian Farrey

Summary:  Jaxter Grimjinx is a born thief. At least, he’s supposed to be. For generations, the Grimjinx clan has produced the swiftest, cleverest thieves in Vengekeep. The problem is, Jaxter is clumsy. So clumsy that in his first solo heist, he sets the Castellan’s house on fire and lands his family in the gaol. Even Jaxter’s skill for breaking magical locks can’t get them out of this bind. Then a suspiciously convenient prophecy emerges naming the Grimjinx clan as the soon-to-be heroes of Vengekeep.  Now-like it or not-Jaxter Grimjinx will have to become the hero he was truly born to be.
