In his third collection of warped and creepy “weenie” tales, David Lubar, critically acclaimed author and master of the macabre, travels deep into the shadowy corners of his mind to deliver thirty-five stories of laughter and terror to tickle your horror bone.

Learn the real reason why clowns are scary, discover the truth about allergy shots, and find out why you should always be nice to your math teacher. Full of thirsty vampires, hungry insects, evil power tools, singing Girl Scouts, and other terrors, these tales go darker, weirder, and stranger than ever before. And at the end of the book, the author reveals the inspiration behind each of the stories.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Like the other ‘Weenies’ books, this third collection contains very brief stories for which the term ‘warped’ is an understatement...This book will talk itself right off the shelves, and reluctant readers will devour it.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Another cool collection. This would be perfect to read around a campfire—or at any sleepover...creepy, but also hilarious.”

    Detroit Free Press

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brynn | 12/10/2013

    " These would be excellent short stories to read with grades 4-6 and use to model how to write a short story. Each has an unexpected twist and the author includes copious notes about inspiration that could help students brainstorm. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shelly | 12/10/2013

    " Some of the stories were cute, others were just boring. I think my students would like them. I really liked how the story Three started out, but I wish it had ended differently. It seemed like the stories towards the end were a little better. "

    " Short stories that are a little creepy but not too gruesome for kids. My daughter doesn't read all of them because some seem boring. I read them all and enjoyed them, though some are a bit disturbing. Tales include things such as vampires, kids who become what they eat, etc. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Colby Edmonds | 6/17/2013

    " It was really good. The only problem was it was a bit scary and a bit weird. Some of teh storys didn't have a point. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lara | 2/27/2013

    " Speculative Fiction for the young, these stories take the "what if?" writing platform into weird places. Some of the stories are funny, but most will play strange games with your mind. I might not reccommend these for very young readers, these stories are nightmare-inducing! "
