Ernest always does what his mother asks...and never has any fun. When a new boy moves in next door, Ernest's mother encourages her son to make friends. But the new neighbors seem a little bit...strange—monstrous, even. Obeying Ernest's new friend Vlapid's mother means Ernest must do things he'd never dare try at home. And it's fantastic
Veteran children's book author Florence Parry Heide and her daughter Roxanne Heide team up with Kyle M. Stone to create a gleefully subversive take on the traditional new neighbor story. Lots of energy and mayhem, and a cool gothic approach to the illustrations make this a great choice for Halloween and all year round.
Florence Parry Heide is an award-winning author of more than a hundred children's books, including the Treehorn series, illustrated by Edward Gorey, and "Princess Hyacinth (The Surprising Tale of a Girl Who Floated), " illustrated by Lane Smith. She lives in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
