About the Book

The brand new must-read middle-grade novel from the author of Crater Lake. Perfect for 9+ fans of R.L.Stine’s Goosebumps and Stranger Things.

“Deliciously scary and hilarious comedy-horror, perfectly pitched for eight-plus.”

The Guardian

Angelo and his friends have faced some truly fearsome foes, from mind-controlling parasites to deadly monsters of the deep and giant spiders to vampire birds … but their adventures aren't over yet!

Dread Wood High is suffering from an infestation of caterpillars. But these are no ordinary caterpillars. These creepy creatures grow into giant, mutant, killer moths with a taste for BLOOD! They’ll stop at nothing until everything – and everyone – is destroyed. It’s Club Loser’s toughest battle to date. It’s all to play for … and everything is at stake.

Critical Praise

“Brilliantly creepy fun for young horror fans, with an unexpectedly moving ending.” – iNews

“Jennifer Killick’s talent for horror and humour is blended brilliantly here as the spiky dialogue, unstoppable pace and genuinely menacing atmosphere build to a tremendous climax”– Daily Mail

“Deliciously scary and hilarious comedy-horror, perfectly pitched for eight-plus.”
The Guardian

“This is Killick’s best book yet; think ‘The Breakfast Club’ meets ‘Stranger Things’, making great use of her talent for comic dialogue and her astute eye for just the right kind of scary for this age group.” – Editor’s Choice, The Bookseller

After her last two books (the fantastically creepy Crater Lake and Crater Lake: Evolution), Jennifer has, yet again, upped the level of stylishly slick, sinister storylines and honed her clever range of shock / comedy techniques – from the laugh-out-loud, nose-snortingly funny moments, to the cheekily edgy asides, to the poignant warm-hearted, gentle, fun scenes she does so well.

Not for the faint-hearted, this edge-of-seat horror is hard to put down, with many chapters ending on a cliff-hanger. But it’s the humanity and backstories that stay with you when the trauma ends. BookTrust (Book of the Day, April 13th 2022)
