"Wiley," said Grampa, "if we wanna make it to the truck show in time, we're gonna have to cut through those woods."

"You mean those dark, scary, wild animal-infested woods?" I asked nervously.

"Why, that's the best kind, my boy!"

Inside, the place was a madhouse, stuffed to the brim with freaky people.

"Grampa," I said, "all these fans look pretty weird."

"It's Halloween, Wiley!" said Grampa. "Everyone's wearing costumes . . . or just really ugly."

Vlad, the Impala!

During a stormy Halloween night, overcoming a F5 Tornado and an angry Gramma, Wiley and his Grampa take a break from their monster movie marathon to go to the Monster Truck Spectacular, a monster truck show put on by Colonel Dracula. Once there they are invited by Dracula to visit his backstage lair where thrills and chills await them. Kirk Scroggs includes the proper mix of monster and humor in both story and art. While kids may not get all the jokes and references, the adults sure will, which ...more
This will be an easy sell!
I looooooooooooove this book! It is soooooooo cool. If I could well, that is, if you could give them whatever stars you want, how many numbers there are, how much you can think of, I here would give that book 99 thousand and 99 thousand and 99 thousand infinity.
Great read alike for the Captain Underpants/ Lenny and Mel/ or any good funny boy beginning chapter book. Funny pictures great story and a cover that really does not need me to help sell it to any audience. Grades 2+
Short, but very very funny. I have finally found a book series that might be able to run against the Junie B. Jones books. Oh, these books would still lose to Junie, but at least they'd try to compete.
The "Wiley and Grampa" series was recommended over and over to me by a third grade boy and i could TOTALLY see why. Fans of Captain Underpants will enjoy these short (sometimes gross) chapter books.

this book was very interesting you would think that the granpa being so old he would be aware of his surrounding and teach wiley that too
this book was a kind of freaky book. Dracula's married to i think gram pa's wife. it is so mest up

ps im married to a ghost
Pure fun through and through -- gives new meaning to the phrase, "monster truck" if you catch my drift!

Funny in a totally ridiculous way that gets my 8 year old son excited to read, and want to read more!
This is a very funny kids' book with adorable characters and drawings.
I hope to read the whole series.
Fans of Captain Underpants or American/Michigan Chillers will enjoy this one.
My seven year old twins loved listening to this one.
