Booklist - 03/15/2016 The Creeps—hacker Carol, monster-expert Mitchell, gadgeteer Jarvis, and superstrong fashionista Rosario—stumble upon a new case when something grabs Jarvis and chomps on his helmet. They learn that trolls—globby, tusked creatures with rapacious appetites—have come to town intending to feast on humans. On top of that, social media has gone crazy, sending out misinformation and alarmist messages that send stress levels very high. Since the trolls can remain invisible to most people, the only person who believes the Creeps is Josh Brogglin, who has a long-standing score to settle with the trolls. This second book in the Creeps series is just as wacky, spooky, icky, and fun as the first, and Schweizer’s colorful art makes the monsters just scary and creepy enough to thrill young readers. Despite the relatively small size of the book, the panels include lots of detail without looking crowded. Thanks to the mixed-­gender band of heroes at it heart, this will appeal to a wide range of young readers hungry for horror-lite monster stories. - Copyright 2016 Booklist.
