Meh. Having cut my reading teeth on horror, I'm always on the lookout for "appropriate" suggestions to make to kids who come seeking a shivery experience of jolts and scares. David Lubar's Weenies series has been one I've gone back to time and time again. Perhaps I've just read one too many Weenie tales, because unfortunately this latest collection feels like Lubar merely phoned it in. There was little pizzazz and very few genuine creeps and giggles, elements I have come to expect from the ser

My copy was provided by Netgalley.

This book series is filled with scary short stories that are never related to each other, but all have their own unique touch of horror. Some stories were silly and others were downright creepy. But they all have horror laced in them and they all tell a lesson.

Most of the stories vary in two ones. In some, the main character does something wrong and something terrible happens to that person to teach him/her a lesson. In the litter box story, the girl didn't clea

David Lubar is a genius at writing the short story! Combine his story telling ability with his creepy and eerily alarming horror tales and you have the makings of a well-loved book. This is my first Weenie book and the first couple of short stories evoked teacher-terror in me as I read about zombies, protruding bone, and the eerie sound of scraping against a dumpster! I thought, "Am I allowed to read this to my kids?"I felt a chill just reading them! However, Lubar finishes each short story with ...more

As Promised: Wonderfully Warped and Creatively Creepy

I'm a fan of David Lubar's story collections. His novels, "Hidden Talents" and "True Talents", are successful, substantial, and accomplished, but for bite sized "horror" treats I like the idea of an anthology of very short creepy episodes. These stories are like little scary mental potato chips; able to give the reader a scary or weird "zing", but not detailed, lengthy or real enough to get inside a kid's head. I also like them because I think

This seventh collection of tales from Lubar will delight elementary school students, so it is a must purchase for elementary libraries. These don't do quite as well in the middle school, which is a shame. In this collection, I thought that M.U.B. a story all in dialog about a monster under the bed, would be good to study in class. Lubar also includes a story in second person, set up sort of like a Choose Your Own Adventure Book, which is clever. There's always one point in the year when students ...more

This was my first weenies book. I didn't know what to expect. But, all I know is that it won't be my last.
This is a book of creepy off the wall short stories. And, yes some of them are disturbing. I loved every page of it.
They go from aliens, living meat, bullies who are controlled by wireless ps2 controllers, voodoo dolls and even living dolls out to hurt you. They are all great and I can't pick my favorite story.

Wireless Weenies was a delightful surprise and hit with the whole family. The stories are just the right level of creepy and gross to have the appreciation and attention of my two children (5 and 8). I also find them so incredibly creative and unique, I enjoy reading them as much or more then the kids !

The stories are all so different from one another that you could stop reading at any time. That being said, we enjoyed them all so much, we read it over two nights (and that is only because on our

Some of the stories are fabulous and some not as great. Plenty of tales that the kids will love, though! Using a few to reinforce Notice & Note signposts

Yet another great collection of bizarre stories. I've already earmarked a couple to read aloud to my classes.
Brenda Kahn
Generally, I'm not a short story fan. If I like one, I usually don't want it to end. I like the Weenies books. This seventh collection is weird and humorous with a bit of gross thrown in. They are also short. I enjoyed the titles almost as much as the stories themselves and the cover is hilarious. I also like the author's notes about what inspired each story at the end. A fine addition to the short story collection and a must-have for Weenies fans.
Pamela Kramer
There just aren't enough good short stories for middle grade kids. Stories they'll love to read. Thank goodness for David Lubar and his Weenie books! This newest one is just as funny and gory as the others...
