Teacher's Pest by Charles Gilman
DON'T BE FOOLED by his friendly smile, his perfect manners, or his shiny red apple. Student council president Howard Mergler is actually a sinister bug-monster in disguise—and he's summoning swarms of roaches, wasps, fleas, and head lice into the corridors of Lovecraft Middle School! Twelve-year-old Robert Arthur is the only student who can stop him--but he'll need help from his best friends: the school bully, the school ghost, and an extremely courageous two-headed rat.
This third novel in the Lovecraft Middle School series begins right where Professor Gargoyle and The Slither Sisters ended—with more action, more adventure, and more outrageous monsters!
For those of you who watch book related things on YouTube, or have a Goodreads account, you know the Tales from Lovecraft Middle School series has gotten incredibly popular lately. There is a reason for that. It’s fantastic. The series has quickly become one of my favorite middle grade reads. Teacher's Pest is the best book in the series so far, in my opinion. The plot was fun and fast-paced. It caught my attention easily and reeled me in. The book brought back the same characters we know and love from the other two novels. Without the addition of any new characters, Pip and Squeak are still my favorites. I don’t think I would have survived in Lovecraft Middle School. This book in the series is about insects, and I have an insect phobia. I’m excited to read the next book in the series to see how Robert’s mother's news effects everyone.
I give Teacher’s Pest: 5/5.
