When Ms. Clevis, mild-mannered science teacher, accidentally spikes her smoothie with lab chemicals, something seriously strange happens at Washington Irving Elementary. Ms. Clevis isn't Ms. Clevis anymore; one moment she's Jackie the sweet sixth-grader and the next she's the evil-doing substitute teacher Ms. Hyde! Can Jackie wangle a cure before she becomes the monstrous Ms. Hyde forever?
Award-winning author David Lubar doesn't disappoint with Hyde and Shriek (Starscape/Tor, 2013), his latest hilarious horror tome for tweens and the first of his new Monsteriffic Tales series. Lubar talks monsters, video game programming, series-crafting, and how to amortize the cost of a philosophy degree in my February children's market column at Authorlink.com.
