Publisher Review

HowI Met Your Mother vet Jason Segel offers a touching comical saga, the first of a trilogy, about facing things that go bump in the night. * US Weekly * Segel and Miller make for a solid team; their Netherworld is populated by everything from talking bugs to killer clowns, and the underlying message-sometimes you have to admit to and confront your fears-is important. Kwasny's illustrations provide a fitting mixture of realism and absurdity. * Publishers Weekly * Segel and Miller build an entertaining, cartoony world full of scary (but not too scary) monsters, silly jokes, plucky kid heroes, and a cinematic plot that trundles onward to a satisfying conclusion, with a promise of adventures to come * Booklist * A good choice for elementary-aged scare-seekers * School Library Journal *
