Substitute Creature (Lovecraft Middle School #4) by Charles Gilman

Hardcover: 176 pages
Publisher: Quirk Books (15 Nov 2013)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 1594746400
When a giant nor’easter dumps a blanket of snow on the village of Dunwich, Massachussetts, Robert Arthur and his friends find themselves marooned inside Lovecraft Middle School. The kids have no choice but to spend the night—while snacking on cafeteria food, sleeping on classroom floors, and facing off against a mysterious substitute teacher who may have a sinister secret. The latest adventure in the Lovecraft Middle School series features more adventures, more outrageous monsters, and another terrifying lenticular cover!

Cover:  Another fabulous cover, and probably the creepiest so far.

This series is such a great middle grade series, despite me not being the intended reader.
They're full of fun, freaky action that out intrepid heroes- Robert, Glenn, Katrina and the two headed rat Pip and Squeak get themselves into thanks to an alternate world in which a scientist is trying to take over the human world with demons and monsters.
Which sees Robert and friends trapped in Lovecraft Middle School by a terrible, mysterious blizzard along with a strange substitute teacher with a sinister motive.
This was an awesome book, but I feel it lacked some of the suspense and creepiness that we see in the first two books.
Still a fantastic read, that I thoroughly enjoyed, and I still highly recommend this series for children and adults alike.
4.5/5 stars.
