About The Book

From the author of Junior Monster Scouts comes the first four books in a spooky and silly series perfect for fans of Goosebumps and Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark—now available in one collectible paperback boxed set!

Wolver Hollow is not a normal town. The adults are too busy shuffling off to work at the old coffin factory to notice or care, but the kids know all about monsters, ghosts, and strange lights in the sky. Strange things happen in Wolver Hollow. Creepy things.

And if the adults won’t do anything about it, it’s up to the local fifth graders. Parker and Lucas find more than they bargain for when they set out to debunk rumors of a ghostly mustache. Madeline’s distaste for lima beans causes the legume scorned to seek its revenge. Twins Tara and Travis end up home alone with a spider the size of a dog and have to find it before it finds them. And Dillon angers a squadron of squirrels after hitting one with a tennis ball—can he survive the siege?

This scary-but-funny paperback boxed set includes:
The Haunted Mustache
The Lurking Lima Bean
The Not-So-Itsy-Bitsy Spider
The Squirrels Have Gone Nuts

About The Author

Joe McGee loves to write about monsters and magic and other strange, curious, and quirky things. He grew up with his nose in a book and his imagination exploring other worlds. He knew when he was ten years old that one day he would grow up to be an author! He has an MFA in writing for children and young adults from the Vermont College of Fine Arts and an MFA in writing from Rowan University. Joe teaches at Sierra Nevada University’s low-residency MFA program and English at Eastern West Virginia Community and Technical College. He is a former Army officer and lives in the mountains of West Virginia with his wife (also a children’s author), Jessica Rinker. 

About The Illustrator

Teo Skaffa currently lives in Istanbul but is from a village in the Netherlands which you’ve probably never heard of, and for good reason. He loves music, video games, cinema, and swimming. He hates drawing in accurate perspective and room temperature watermelon (cold is fine though, delicious even). Coming from a traditional background, he now focuses on digital illustration and storytelling. Most of his inspiration comes from that short moment when you wake up and don’t quite understand what is happening yet, where he sees brief flashes of images and ideas which he turns into colorful illustrations.
