Book Description:
The next middle-grade rhyming novel from the award-winning author of Zorgamazoo! Prince Puggly of the muddy, terminally unfashionable Kingdom of Spud is surprised when he receives an invitation to a lavish ball in the far more chic Kingdom of Spiff. Puggly is sure that the Spiffs will take one look at him and laugh him out of their kingdom. And that’s exactly what they do. . . . But then Puggly meets Francesca, the bookish Princess of Spiff, and together the two set out to teach Francesca’s Spiffian countrymen an absurd lesson in style. Award-winning author Robert Paul Weston once again delivers a humorous fantasy in rhyming verse that just begs to be read aloud. And this time, it comes with a message that’s sure to impress: There’s more to a person than how they are dressed.

Book Description:
IF THESE CREATURES DON'T PUT ON A SHOW, THEY'LL BE PUT ON A PLATE! When Jean-Remy receives a singing telegram from his long-lost sister, Eloise Yvette, the Creature Department is once again thrown into an invention frenzy. Rumor has it that the Ghorks have taken Heppleworth’s Food Factory hostage. And worse, they are threatening to make tasty treats of the creatures inside! Elliot and Leslie lead the way to the town of Simmersville with Ghork-grappling inventions in hand. A grand Food Festival is in full swing, and the fanciest restaurant in town is serving a very suspicious Special. Elliot takes a bite, but when strange green hair starts growing on his arm, he wishes he hadn’t. A very hairy Elliot, a blurrified Leslie, and our favorite department of creatures finally come nose-to-snout with the Ghorks and uncover a sinister scheme. But can they fend off the gang of ravenous Ghorks before dinnertime? Praise for The Creature Department: “Stunning. . . . a bit like if you took Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Monsters Inc. and shoved them in a TARDIS.”—Buzzfeed “The creatures are a giggle-inducing example of an imagination run wild.”—Associated Press “The creatures are the main appeal . . . and their antics, coupled with the strong visuals, will attract readers who enjoy imaginative, slightly silly fantasies.”—School Library Journal “A literal Creature feature, with plenty of cinematic and digital spinoff potential.”—Kirkus “A lot of silliness, a bit of rickum rockery, and a giggle of grossness.”—New York Journal of Books

Book Description:
"Stunning. . . . a bit like if you took Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Monsters Inc. and shoved them in a TARDIS."—Buzzfeed It’s a tentacled, inventive, gooey, world in there. . . . Elliot Von Doppler and his friend Leslie think nothing ever happens in Bickleburgh, except inside the gleaming headquarters of DENKi-3000—the world’s eighth-largest electronics factory. Beneath the glass towers and glittering skywalks, there's a rambling old mansion from which all the company’s amazing inventions spring forth. And no one except Uncle Archie knows what’s behind the second-to-last door at the end of the hall. Until Elliot and Leslie are invited to take a glimpse inside. They find stooped, troll-like creatures with jutting jaws and broken teeth. Tiny winged things that sparkle as they fly. And huge, hulking, hairy nonhumans (with horns). It is unlike anything they’ve ever seen. But when Chuck Brickweather threatens to shut down the DENKi-3000 factory if a new product isn’t presented soon, the creatures know they are in danger. And when Uncle Archie vanishes, it’s up to Elliot, Leslie, and every one of the unusual, er, “employees” to create an invention so astonishing it will save the Creature Department.
