Katfish
by Obert Skye and Obert Skye




Overview -

A schoolwide event inspired by the Hunger Games and a girl with the strength of Katniss Everdeen (plus a scaly mermaid tail)--is Rob Burnside in store for even more trouble than usual? Find out in Book 4 in Obert Skye's middle grade Creature from My Closet series.

Rob Burnside's life is in ruins. After his escapades with Pinocula and his resulting outrageous lies, everyone is fed up with him. Rob needs help. And his science laboratory closet is there to give him a hand.

Meet Katfish, a mashup of Katniss from the Hunger Games and the Little Mermaid. This girl is strong as nails and sports a tail. Everyone at Rob's school is excited about an upcoming riff on the Hunger Games created by Principal Smelt: the Fun-ger Games. Rob is less excited because the principal and his mom have roped him into participating.

But Katfish is sticking around to help Rob out with girl advice, Fun-ger Games tips, and how to get people to stop hating him. What could go wrong?

Praise for Katfish

"Drawing from The Wimpy Kid school of adolescent humor, scenes like a drenching water balloon mishap, a food fight at the family dinner table, and a clever parody of 'The Fun-ger Games, ' should appeal to reluctant and enthusiastic readers alike. The line drawings are reminiscent of doodles middle school boys draw when they should be taking notes. Engaging cartoons, quick dialogue in speech squares, and generous white space break up text segments, make this book an inviting, independent read." --Children's Literature
