What do you get when you mash up Pinocchio with Dracula — a lying vampire made of wood!For Rob Burnside, things are going pretty well. His friends are behaving, school isn’t too bad, his family’s getting along, and Janae, the girl of his dreams, occasionally notices him. Yep, life’s okay — until the lying starts.
Meet Pinocula, the new creature from Rob’s closet. He is a liar and a jokester and is determined to drive Rob crazy. Obert Skye doesn’t let his fans down in this hilarious follow-up to Wonkenstein and Potterwookiee. This is terrific diary fiction with black and white illustrations throughout.
“Comfy antics for readers who don’t probably much like reading—which, one thinks, is exactly the point.” — Kirkus Reviews
“Quite funny and has a lot of laugh-out-loud moments. . . . the idea of a hybrid Willy Wonka/Frankenstein character is original and hilarious.” — SLJ
“Highly amusing new series starter. . . . Skye gives Rob a self-deprecating charm and highlights the pleasures of books both subtly and effectively.” — Booklist
“Filled with spot-on commentary and a wince-inducing supporting cast, middle grade guys won’t be able to keep Wonkenstein to themselves. . . . This pitch-perfect offering should appeal to reluctant readers, not to mention the legion Wimpy Kid fans.” — Shelf AwarenessObert Skye grew up in many different and varied temperatures. His favorite color is green, and he used to be allergic to cinnamon. He has not swum the English Channel or boxed a kangaroo, but he is the award-winning author of the bestselling Leven Thumps series, the Pillage series, and The Creature from My Closet series. We would tell you more about him, but, frankly, we don’t know much more.
