Secrets of Dripping Fang:: Attack of the Giant Octopus

Author: Dan Greenburg

Wally and Cheyenne Shluffmuffin have a rough life for a pair of ordinary kids! Not only are they living with a giant spider, their dad’s a vampire, a creepy guy is after Wally and giant ants want Cheyenne to train their mutant kids. Wow, makes homework seem like a vacation doesn’t it? Here’s our review of book six in the Secrets of the Dripping Fang book series,

Attack of the Giant Octopus!


The Shluffmuffin Family!

Now that they’re out of the Jolly Days Orphanage and back with their vampire dad, things are awesome for Wally and Cheyenne, right? Nope! Some creep is trying to feed Wally to a 400-pound octopus, the Onts are using their hypnosis on Cheyenne while she’s asleep and, worst of all, if their dad doesn’t get them into a school and himself into a job they’ll get stuck back at the awful orphanage! Ack!

Action, Adventure and Spit-Smoothies!

Even though it starts out with a solidly creepy chapter, Attack of the Giant Octopus quickly gets dull. A lot is happening, but it zooms past everything so fast that it never seems to be really dangerous. Even when Cheyenne has to chug an ant-spit smoothie you barely have time to go “EWWW!” There’s also a lack of brains in all the adults, and a serious case of weirdness when, in a world where everybody seems to be a mutant something-or-other, it’s a serious problem that Vampire Dad is, well, a vampire.


The Bottom Line

If you’re a big fan of the Secrets of the Dripping Fang series, you’ll probably get a few chuckles out of this book. But, it’s not worth trying to read all by itself. Not even Scott M. Fischer’s cool artwork can save this story from being a snore.

    Kawaii Chan P.O.V Kawaii waited at the bus stop after leaving the house, only just hearing what Katelyn said, she was tempted to go back and finish the cupcake... No, she had to see Zane. The bus came and she went in "where you goin' today sugar?" Kawaii Chan smiled at the man "kawaii Chan is going to the hospital" she said, giving the man a few dollars "please take a seat" kawaii Chan nodded as the bus driver tipped his hat at her, and they started up the road Zane P.O.V Zane felt the wheel chair go over a bump and into the air-conditioned hospital, he shivered, hearing doctors speak, kids crying and adults grunting, groaning and moaning made him nervous, thinking he had to look proper, he sat up straight, instantly regretting it, his back cracked and the nurse laughed "you know, you don't have to be fancy to be at a hospital, right?" Zane sighed "well it sure felt that way" the nurse laughed again, not responding though, then he heard running footsteps behind him, slightly screaming, then a voice "Zane kun!" He realised who it was, "k-kawaii Chan?" Kawaii Chan laughed "of course it's kawaii Chan, silly!" He bit his lip "okay.." he felt himself going over another bump, probably his hospital room, "uh, Zane, you'll need to get up to get on the bed, though you can't see, you think you'll be alright?" Zane shook his head "no" someone took his hand "kawaii Chan can help!" He realised kawaii Chan holding his hand, but he knew he was okay, it was kawaii Chan, he would be safe with her, he realised he was muttering "miss, you're blushing, are you alright?" The nurse said, and kawaii Chan giggled "I'm okay"
