Review: In the Land of the Lawn Weenies by David Lubar
In the Land of the Lawn Weenies is a collection of funny, outlandish and spine-chilling short stories for kids aged 9-12. An enchanted battle ax transforms its bearer into a monomaniac intent on slaughter. Bullies are forced to face their worst nightmares. A substitute teacher revolts against jeering pupils. With its kafkaesque distortion of reality tempered with Lubar’s humor, this book will have kids laughing during the day but plugging in their nightlights before bed.
