Description

Doug Underbelly has stepped down as King of the Mole People. No more Slug, Stone, Mole, or Mushroom underlings. And no more underground fight club. The only thing standing between Doug and normality is the creaky old mansion surrounded by gravestones he calls home.But normal doesn't come so easy-if Doug won't be King of the Mole People, the universe will find a way to make him be king of the dance committee and king of the backyard cleanup. And then the Slugs (a different species) begin to revolt, and Doug is pulled under to restore order. Can it be done? Let's just say: one Slug egg at a time.Christy Ottaviano Books

Critic Reviews

“"The same sly humor and quirky illustrations found in the first volume. With a bit of hand-selling, these stories will be perfect for kids looking for a little variation on the Greg Heffley theme. Funny stories are hard to find, so purchase both books in the series where humorous fiction is in demand. " -- School Library Journal "Along with plenty of muck and ooey-gooey characters with monikers like "Hurrk" and "Burf", Gilligan plugs in plenty of Wimpy Kid-style ink-and-fill drawings with punchlines and wordless reaction shots ." -- Kirkus Reviews”
