Kritterkreep by J.D. Gordon

Andy Biggs's new life in the "burbs" is about to take a turn for the worse. An uninvited guest has moved into the stately old Victorian home he shares with his mom, new stepdad and baby sister. This weird little demon in a zoot suit has nothing but mischief on its mind and threatens to destroy Andy's home, school life and even his sanity.
(Synopsis taken from Goodreads.)

My Thoughts:
Kritterkreep was an a great book. It was pretty creepy, and kept me turning pages in anticipation of what would happen next. All of the characters were very well written. My favorite character had to be Elsa. She was pretty bad-ass towards the end of the book and highly intelligent. My only complaint is I wish at the end, the author would have specified more about what she is. That left me a little confused. I didn't really care for Chester or Melvin, and I thought they were both fairly annoying characters, but they weren't in the book very much. Since I have read Kritterkreep, I have become a fan of J.D. Gordon, and can't wait to read the rest of his books. This book is pretty spooky at times, so I would recommend it for readers twelve and older. 

I give Kritterkreep: 4/5.

Want to know more about the author?

I received this book in exchange for an honest review and was in no way compensated for this review.


  1. this sounds good...i love a creepy story..make the author intentionally left things vague..because the human mind can create all kinds of ideas. Great review

  2. It is really good! That could be a possibility. Thank you!

  3. Hi Kayla,
    Just stopping by to let you know I’ve tagged you for the “book tag” chain on my blog :) Please stop by for the rules and to find your questions!

  4. Hey, hmmm can the author respond??? LOL. Yes, Elsa is supposed to remain a bit of a mystery.

    I may want to bring her back someday ;)

    And Chester, you're not supposed to like him. He's the step dad!

    1. I hope you do bring Elsa back sometime in the future.
