Title: Secrets of Dripping Fang: The Onts
Author: Dan Greenburg
Ages: 9+
Rating: 5


Ten year-old twins Wally and Cheyenne Shluffmuffin have it bad at the orphanage, but things get much worse when they get adopted by a couple of creepy, old women who live in the Dripping Fang Forest.


Meet Sniffles and Stinkfoot

Ever since their vampire dad drowned by falling through a Porta Potti, their mom was attacked by a gang of angry bunnies, and their grandma was carried off by a nearsighted eagle that mistook her for a raccoon, Wally and Cheyenne have been living at the Jolly Days Orphanage. They sleep on stained mattresses, eat gruel (a slimier version of oatmeal) for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and do six hours of chores every single day. What sets the Shluffmuffin twins apart from the rest of the orphans is that Wally's feet reek worse than rotting meat and Cheyenne is allergic to everything you could possibly be allergic to!


The Mysterious Mandibles

Although Wally and Cheyenne are good kids, nobody wants to adopt them cuz he smells and she sneezes too much. So then why are Hedy and Dagmar Mandible so eager to take them home? What's up with these weird women, who are six feet tall, have very large heads and live in Dripping Fang Forest, a terrible place where monsters wander the woods? The twins reluctantly go home with them, but soon find out that the Mandible sisters aren't what they appear to be! Soon, they're escaping from their home and running for their lives - but how will they make it out of Dripping Fang Forest alive?


The Bottom Line

Secrets of Dripping Fang, Book One: The Onts is a fast and entertaining book. You'll get goosebumps as you read page after page, which is perfect for putting you into the spooky spirit of [kwlink]Halloween[/kwlink]!

The Shluffmuffin twins encounter more scary adventures in book two: Treachery and Betrayal at Jolly Days, book three: The Vampire's Curse and book four: Fall of the House of Mandible

I don't support him at all but my concern is if he is removed then we have to deal with Mike Pence who could be a lot worse. His political ideals would have a bigger impact on the US if he took power rather than leaving it for trump to deal with. Becides if we're smart since trump does not have political expirence we can shy him away from the bad stuff if we make it convincing enough for him to change his mind

Today, several states had thousands of women joining together to fight against Trump. Celebrities like Madonna, Ariana Grande, and Miley Cirus showed up, some gave speeches, women shouted and raised their signs. Will Trump budge? What do you think? Should women be able to have abortion? Should Trump cut funds of women?

I think it loads faster, compiles faster, and is just overall smoother... The only thing that the Steam version has that this one does not is access to the 'workshop,' in which you can easily share and play other people's games. Ah, cool! X3 I'll pass on your advice to my friend so someone may benefit from it, as I don't use the application anymore. Thanks ^-^
