This wonderfully weird and wacky early reader series delivers laugh-a-page humor that is perfect for reluctant readers.

In the seventh hysterical tale, a carton of rancid eggnog bubbles to life, devouring unfortunate citizens and plastic reindeer on the lawns of Gingham County. With the power to morph into the shape of people, the eggy menace seems unstoppable, withstanding spitballs and even a group of relentless Christmas carolers. Will Wiley and Grampa, with the help of Roberto Claus–the fruitcake-wielding owner of Santa’s Happytown Shanty Village–save the day, or will the killer eggnog leave a trail of chaos and nutmeg in its slippery path?

Thick and Creamy

Ladies and gentlemen… I'd like to take a moment to talk about eggnog. To some, eggnog is a delicious holiday beverage that brings joy to all To the rest of us sane and normal folks, it is a disgusting yellow milky concoction that resembles elephant mucus.

This is a heartwarming story about eggnog—rivers of evil, frothy, putrid eggnog. So sit down, dim the lights, and pour yourself a big ol' glass. Enjoy.

Look out! A stream of eggnog is headed straight for you!

No, wait! That's just Jubal demonstrating his awesome ability to shoot milk out of his nose. It was only a few days until Christmas vacation and Jubal was celebrating with a twenty-one-nostril salute.

"Hey! Watch it!" I yelled. "You almost hit my science project. I've spent weeks perfecting my Superblob 3.5 formula."

"Do you really think it's a good idea to have such dangerous chemicals in the cafeteria?" asked Jubal.

"Yeah," said Coach Haunch. "You wouldn't want to contaminate those perfectly good toxic chemicals with Vera's cooking."

"This is no ordinary batch of toxic chemicals," I said. "It can be sculpted into any form."

"Hey! It's Santa!" said little Mary Ann.

"Or it can be used for educational purposes. Just look at this sculpture of our nation's capitol…

or this authentic baboon's butt."

"Neato!" said Mary Ann. "It jiggles just like the real thing!"

Suddenly, we heard a shriek from the kitchen! It was Vera, fresh back from her vacation and out of her mind.

"Help! Help!" she screamed. "Something slimy and horrible just attacked me in the kitchen!"

"Are you sure it wasn't the Salisbury steak with brown gravy?" I asked.

"Nooo!" she screamed. "This was much more vicious!"


The Kitchen Stink

We gathered whatever weapons we could find and bravely crept into the kitchen. The air was filled with the smell of rot and doom, which was, of course, perfectly normal.

"You guys go ahead without me," said Coach Haunch nervously. "I'm gonna go check on the parking lot and make sure our precious fleet of school buses is okay."
