Teacher's Pest (Tales from Lovecraft Middle School #3) by Charles Gilman

“Two-headed monsters, giant tentacles, angry demons—Lovecraft Middle School is great creepy fun!”
—Ransom Riggs, author of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

DON'T BE FOOLED by his friendly smile, his perfect manners, or his shiny red apple. Student council president Howard Mergler is actually a sinister bug-monster in disguise—and he's summoning swarms of roaches, wasps, fleas, and head lice into the corridors of Lovecraft Middle School!  Twelve-year-old Robert Arthur is the only student who can stop him--but he'll need help from his best friends: the school bully, the school ghost, and an extremely courageous two-headed rat.

This third novel in the Lovecraft Middle School series begins right where Professor Gargoyle and The Slither Sisters ended—with more action, more adventure, and more outrageous monsters!
   Hardcover, 170 pages   Published May 7th 2013 by Quirk Books

Teachers Pest takes us into the underbelly of the school, with all forms of insects, larger than you can imagine! In this edition of the Lovecraft Middle School books, it takes us deeper into the more infested side of the school as giant insects have began to take over. With the new Student Council President Howard Mergler taking charge. His family of insects have come along to launch an attack on the students. 
 
Glenn and Robert have a bit of a falling out after Glenn gets stung by one of the humongous bees and begins to act different. Robert must learn the secrets of the infestation without Glen's help. Only with his trusted rat- friends Pip and Squeak can Robert begin to find out what is happening before it gets out of hand.  

So far this was the hardest book for me to read...because I have a huge fear of insects. These bugs were huge, and swarming the school  in the millions. From the smallest of lice to the largest of walking-sticks. Not to mention the largest bug of all..Howard Mergler himself!


Each book full of different creatures and monsters with non-stop adventure. Creepy and fun for kids of all ages.
