The Battle of the Red Hot Pepper Weenies and Other Warped and Creepy Tales
Author
David Lubar
Review
I picked up this book to encourage my 10 year old son to read for the summer reading log. He is very choosy over the books he will read and rather reluctant to read over playing on the computer or playstation. I gave him this book to read and once he started it he had difficulty putting the book down until he had finished the book in its entirety. Now my other kids are reading it and enjoying it also.  Reserve a copy!
