Summary

Summary

In Pumpkins County, monster attacks are a common enough occurrence, but when Jarvis is attacked by an invisible monster, the Creeps know they've found their next case. Through Mitchell's extensive monster expertise, the gang identifies the culprit: a Troll. Unfortunately, Trolls travel in packs. They hibernate together, and they feast on humans together. The tastiest type of human? Those who have been marinating in their own stress hormones. And there's an awful lot of stress to go around these days, what with the town's gossip site spewing out nonstop misinformation and alarmist messages. Could the Trolls be behind the county-wide breakdown in communication? With the town's anxiety levels soaring off the charts, it's up to the Creeps to find out--before the Trolls' big feast.
This hilarious graphic-novel series celebrates the power of underdogs and the importance of finding your tribe--even if your tribe is weird and just, well . . . creepy.

Booklist Review

The Creeps hacker Carol, monster-expert Mitchell, gadgeteer Jarvis, and superstrong fashionista Rosario stumble upon a new case when something grabs Jarvis and chomps on his helmet. They learn that trolls globby, tusked creatures with rapacious appetites have come to town intending to feast on humans. On top of that, social media has gone crazy, sending out misinformation and alarmist messages that send stress levels very high. Since the trolls can remain invisible to most people, the only person who believes the Creeps is Josh Brogglin, who has a long-standing score to settle with the trolls. This second book in the Creeps series is just as wacky, spooky, icky, and fun as the first, and Schweizer's colorful art makes the monsters just scary and creepy enough to thrill young readers. Despite the relatively small size of the book, the panels include lots of detail without looking crowded. Thanks to the mixed-­gender band of heroes at it heart, this will appeal to a wide range of young readers hungry for horror-lite monster stories.--Kan, Kat Copyright 2016 Booklist
