Publisher Summary

In Book 5 in the Creature from My Closet series, Rob Burnside is visited by an especially strange closet creature: the CAT IN THE HAT mashed with GOLLUM from The Lord of the Rings. Certainly a goofier-than-usual hybrid! Rob Burnside thinks he’s getting the hang of things. It almost seems as if he has learned all he needed to from his unusual closet. Beardy, the doorknob, has it locked up and there are no signs of the closet door opening again. But something slips from the closet unnoticed and that something is part Gollum, part Cat in the Hat. He’s an intense creature with mad rhyming skills. When Rob’s family wins a trip to Colorado, something extra makes it into his luggage. Get ready for school fights, train rides, long mysterious hikes, and a creature unlike any of the others. What Rob will discover is epic. “This pitch-perfect offering should appeal to reluctant readers, not to mention the legion Wimpy Kid fans.” —Shelf Awareness on the Creature from My Closet series “The text is hysterical by itself, but acts as the straight man in relation to the one-two punch of the childlike drawings and captions. . . Get multiple copies of this book; it will fly off the shelves.” —School Library Journal on the Creature from My Closet series A Christy Ottaviano Book Titles in the Creature from My Closet series: Wonkenstein Potterwookie Pinocula Katfish The Lord of the Hat Batneezer
