Welcome to Camp Creeps

Rod Randall, Author B&H Publishing Group $5.99 (135p) ISBN 978-0-8054-1195-9
In this first of the Heebies Jeebies fiction series, Randall combines the excitement, mystery and suspense of many mainstream thrillers, but without the gruesome ending. Anticipating a boring several days with their parents at Camp Millview, Heather and Todd Pierce find the abandoned camp haunted with a wolf and a phantom whose main goal is to catch and silence them. Only the townspeople know the real story behind the camp, and when two mysterious fires start, Heather and Todd have their hands full trying to solve the mystery. They're chased up a tree, placed in jail, hunted down by a wild wolf, attacked by giant rats, stalked by a phantom and much more. The mysterious happenings at Camp Millview eventually conclude satisfactorily, with all members of the Pierce family learning valuable lessons about God's provision in every circumstance. Through humor, action and adventure, Randall, a former staff writer for Teen Quest magazine, communicates his spiritual message in this alternative to popular horror fiction like Goosebumps. Ages 8-12. (July)
