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.
