MOON SHINE ART SPOT REVIEW:
Wipeout of the Wireless Weenies, by David Lubar definitely rang true on being full of creepy. I obtained this book from the publisher before the release date, free for review, in hopes that my 8 year old would like it too. He isn't up for this type of spook yet, but I know many young boys who are. I loved the creativity in each of the different stories. This was my first David Ludbar creepy reading experience and I had already purchased a different title for my son without realizing it, but will hold off on having him read it a little longer, just because my son isn't as fond of the supernatural gory stories I liked as a child.
If your child likes age appropriate (8-13) gore, gross, creepy, Zombies, and other boogies this would be an excellent read. It reminded me a little of the Goosebumps books, but the stories are short stories and not related. This reading experience has definitely peeked my interest even if my son isn't yet ready we will be keeping an eye on this author's various series.
