Tired of all the adventures that occupy her in Horror Hollow, Katie leaves for vacation with friends Lily and Jasper. Unfortunately, adventure follows her to the resort. Marc Cashman works hard to get across the zany humor of Anderson’s pulp fiction for kids and succeeds, for the most part. Reading in a straightforward style, he doesn’t provide much differentiation for the characters, with the exception of Jasper, whose proper speech identifies him as a child of the ‘50s. Even the story’s narrator is presented in the same voice. Anderson is clearly appealing to elementary readers, most of whom will miss the parody but will enjoy the gross passages very much.
