A dragon makes for flaming mayhem in this twelfth book in New York Times bestselling author Christopher Pike’s Spooksville series—now on TV!
A fire-breathing dragon has appeared out of nowhere and is looking for its treasure in Spooksville. In fact, the dragon intends to destroy the entire town unless its jewels and gold are returned immediately. The only trouble is that Adam and his friends don’t know where this treasure is.
Worse, the hotheaded creature won’t listen to reason, and soon it’s laying waste to everything in its way with its fiery breath. The dragon has no problem burning kids to ash, either. Soon Adam and his friends are fighting flames—and for their lives!
Christopher Pike is a bestselling young adult novelist and has published several adult books as well—Sati and The Season of Passage being the most popular. In YA, his Last Vampire series—often called Thirst—is a big favorite among his fans. Pike was born in Brooklyn, New York, but grew up in Los Angeles. He lives in Santa Barbara, California, with his longtime partner, Abir. Currently, several of Pike’s books are being turned into films and in the fall of 2022, Netflix will be releasing a ten-part series entitled The Midnight Club, based on Pike’s novel of the same name. The Midnight Club also draws from a half dozen of Pike’s earlier works. Presently, The Season of Passage is being adapted as a feature film by Universal Studios while Chain Letter—one of Pike all-time bestselling books—is also being adapted by Hollywood. At the moment, Pike is hard at work on a new YA series.
