The latest adventure in Obert Skye's The Creature from My Closet series features a creature called Pinocula that is part Pinocchio and part Dracula. For those of you who have missed the earlier adventures, here's the 4-1-1: Rob Burnside has a bunch of stuff crammed into his closet and lately strange creatures have been emerging from the mess. First there was Wonkenstein (half Willy Wonka/half Frankenstein's monster), and then there was Potterwookiee (half Harry Potter/half Chewbacca). To figure ...more

My love of reading started when i was young, and it gives me immense pleasure to provide books to Spread the Word Nevada, an organization that passes them on to children in the community. They are a terrific organization supporting an important cause. If your local I encourage you to check them out. For those living further a field, look in your own community, their may already be a similar program in place. And if not, you can always help start one.

I hardly read any of this, but that's why it gets 4 stars, the 8 y.o. disappears with it and can't wait for the next one ("Katfish").

Probably one of the best kids books that I've read in ages. Clever well written characters that are funny & real. The book is a mixture of text & pictures with a style that reminds you of a kids journal. For young middle schoolers. Now off to the library to read the rest of the series. Loved, loved it!

Zac, 9, bought this at the book fair a few days ago. He just finished it, and asked for the next one in the series. He's not usually an avid reader, although he is a good reader.

Like all the books in this series! Great step up from those tedious chapter readers, but still plenty of illustrations. Humorous, silly plots boys love.

Another cute creature from the closet! Loved Pinocula in his dark sunglasses and hoodie. I found it hilarious that his fangs would grow as well as his nose when he told a lie. Rob learns some lessons about telling the truth in this one, and also reads a couple more books. :)

Looking forward to Katfish!

For those who like humor this book is for you! This book is a great quick read at only 256 pages long! There are also plenty of drawings throughout the book that will surely keep your attention. If you want to read this book I suggest you read the other two first or other wise things won't make sense. There is also a forth one on the way so be sure to keep an eye out but until then have fun reading! (Also, there's a lot of pop culture references. Keep a eye out for them!)

Cute - will appeal to fans of Wimpy Kid. Some fun literary inclusions like Dracula and Pinocchio.

I did sometimes get annoyed at the references to teen girls and mom obsessed with "sparkly vampires" - but maybe that's just because I'm not a fan?

For a short time, he lived on the Isle of Skye in Scotland, where he spent time as a candy-taster. Several years ago, Obert Skye says, he discovered the existence of Foo. Publishing his story as a fictional series was not Obert’s first choice. Neverthel ...more
