Tanglewood Terror (Lib)(CD) (Compact Disc)
November 2011 Indie Next List
“Eric Parrish is perplexed when he discovers glowing mushrooms in the woods behind his home, but he's sure there's a scientific explanation. As the mushrooms encroach on the town, Eric deals with issues such as his parents' disintegrating marriage, friendship with a girl, and athletic aspirations. Scaletta, the author of Mudville and Mamba Point, has a keen appreciation of the issues confronting middle readers. His story is absorbing, and the situations and dialogue realistic. A great read!”
— Sally Wizik Wills, Sister Wolf Books, Park Rapids, MN
When 13-year-old Eric Parrish comes across glowing mushrooms in the woods behind his house, he's sure there's a scientific explanation. But when they start encroaching on the town--covering the football field and popping up from beneath the floorboards--Eric knows something's seriously wrong. Not that much else is going right: his parents are fighting, his little brother Brian is a little pill, and he's had a falling-out with his football team--over a pig.
Then a runaway girl from a nearby boarding school warns Eric that the fungus could portend the town's doom and leave it in rubble--just like the village that inexplicably disappeared in the exact same spot over 200 years ago. Eric, Brian, and Mandy set out to solve a very old mystery and save the town of Tanglewood.
