  About The Book

At Prunella's half-birthday party, her sister unveils a fortune-telling cootie-catcher. When the cootie-catcher mysteriously seems able to predict the future, Arthur and his friends become like zombies, following its every move. Can they ever go against the cootie-catcher's authority or will they be doomed forever?


"Sure-fire appeal for the primary grade set, as well as Arthur addicts of all ages."

Locked in the Library / Buster's Dino Dilemma:
"These are good, predictable entries in a series whose familiar characters ... continue to encourage children to attempt longer texts."
