Kidzworld reviews Secrets of Dripping Fang, Book One: The Onts by Dan Greenburg, a book that'll leave you feeling spooked!

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 think that there have become to many ways of identifying as a gender. Personally if we could the less amount of terms that people have to memorize the better. Yes you might identify as more than one gender but after like the 15 term it just becomes too confusing. It's unfortunate that I have to say this but I get confused between one term and another even though they might be very similar I am totally supportive as identifying otherwise but it has become a little too much for the average person to comprehend

You know, 'cause they're on me for most of the time, they barely feel like they're there (unless they're sliding down or I run into something and hit them, I don't feel them. They're, like, a part of me now). that happens to me sometimes too!

"Well... Maybe... your related to this 'Ink' in some way?" Now that I thought about it, Paperjam did look a little like Ink... But that one faded memory was hardly something to go on. ​(("I-I like baking... We could make cupcakes or something..."
