Notebook of Doom
THE NOTEBOOK OF DOOM: DAY OF THE NIGHT CRAWLERS by Troy Cummings. Scholastic, September 2013.
After a hard rain, pink slimy night crawlers cover the sidewalks. Is this an invasion? A signal of some doom to come? Alexander must try to figure out what the nigh crawlers might portend using the monster-filled notebook, SSMP, but he does not even know what the initials SSMP stand for. How can he save his town and his school (formerly a hospital)with such little information? Great series for young readers: monsters and mystery makes for a winning combination.
