Nobody wants to adopt the Shluffmuffin twins. Wally’s feet stink something awful, and Cheyenne is allergic to everything. Then why are the Mandible sisters so eager to take them home? And what sort of old maids would choose to live in a place called Dripping Fang Forest, where zombies wander the woods singing “Itsy Bitsy Spider” and ten-foot-long glowing slugs want to suck the feet right off your ankles?
Would it seem ungrateful of Wally to point out the Mandible sisters’ extra arms? Or to question their all-chocolate, all-the-time menu? Or, um, to venture into the cellar, where the twins have been told to NEVER, EVER, EVER go?
Yeah, perhaps that last bit was a mistake. Now there’s nothing left for the Shluffmuffins to do but run–run for their lives! Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natasha | 2/17/2014

    " This is for those who enjoy tongue-in-cheek, sly and melodramatic orphan tales. It's funny and I am curious what happens to them in the next installment, although perhaps not as curious as I was with Snicket or Aiken. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 2/16/2014

    " Incredibly derivative. Similar to Lemony Snicket, Spiderwick Chronicles, etc. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hoover Public Library Kids and Teens | 2/14/2014

    " First in a FUNNY, fast-paced series of eight short but spicy books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 2/14/2014

    " Cute story for kids, although the ending petered out a bit and fell flat. Maybe continuing on to see what comes next will satisfy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alicia | 2/2/2014

    " Fun and fast. Some clever twists on creepy crawly characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Duane | 1/20/2014

    " Twin orphans find themselves being adopted by two mysterious "ladies" who want to be called Onts. After being taken to the mysterious Dripping Fangs Forest, the twins soon find themselves in danger and running from strange and dangerous creatures. A fun book for beginner readers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 tracy | 1/20/2014

    " Did you know I met the author of this book at borders with my class. Really, actually in person!!!!!!It was so cool. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alison | 12/5/2013

    " Giant ants? Feet-eating glow in the dark slugs? Man eating werewolves? I picked up this book thinking it would be a fun one for my 10-year-old son and I was right! A very fun story that any boy (or girl, if they like creep factors) would love. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth | 12/5/2013

    " my 7 and 9 year olds listened to this book on a car trip. it was funny and spooky (scooby doo spooky....not too scary). they did not want to stop listening and get out to to have lunch. it was a short 1 hour 40 minutes....now I need to find the next book in the series on audio. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kaylee | 6/27/2013

    " This book was pretty good. Very interesting. Was funny but I don't know if I liked how the author wrote it. Kind of made me want to go through and re write it to be more scarier or something. But overall, it was really good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan Hoffer | 4/6/2013

    " Oh, Lemony Snicket, what hath you wrought? A near carbon copy of the Unfortunate Event books, with a less biting voice, complete with quirky orphans, direct addresses to the audience, and serial adventure. "
