Summary
New to the Random House list is author Bill Doyle with a tale of monsters, magic, and mayhem.

After Keats and Henry lose their bikes, they need money--fast. So the help-wanted ad at the supermarket seems ideal for them. All they have to do is weed Hallway House's garden, find some lightbulbs in the attic, sweep the garage . . . and battle a shark-headed zombie. But no one told them about the giant bookworms in the library, the toe-biting carpet in the halls, and the kitchen sinkhole!
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This entry in the Stepping Stones series presents a fresh and appealing option for those readers who are new to chapter books. Adventure-prone cousins Henry and Keats find themselves in a pickle when they lose their bikes during a stunt at Steep Cliff Hill. When their mothers deny their request for funds to replace them, a job seems like their only option. Responding to a cryptic advertisement, they find themselves signing on to clean Mr. Cigam's decrepit and creepy mansion. Third on Mr. Cigam's to-do list. Battle and defeat the shark-headed zombie. With enchanted scepters, wizard spells, disappearing chickens, and magical tornadoes, this book reads exactly like the wandering imagination of a creative youngster, offering up an absurd premise that will be a hit with boys in particular and reluctant readers in general. Accompanied by black-and-white illustrations showing the boys and the zombie in action, Doyle's reader-friendly and engaging story packs in a remarkable amount of action and fun.--Anderson, Eri.
