I've been a fan of John Connolly since the first Charlie Parker novel "Every Dead Thing" was published, thus the big kid in me was attracted by the Samuel Johnson series. I thoroughly enjoyed "The Creeps". All the lovable characters, including Dan's Dwarfs were back (Nurd being my personal favorite), but, as the title suggests, there were some creeps too. My inner child loved it.

By Ted Feit on 23 May 2014
Format: Hardcover
The last of the Samuel Johnson novels written by the author of the Charlie Parker mysteries and meant for young adults (and children of all ages), his hometown, the little English village of Biddlecombe, is once again besieged by the forces of evil. This time, however, the setting is a new toy store designed to entrap Samuel, his dog, Boswell, and the demons and policemen who accompanied Samuel to hell in the previous book of the trilogy, “Lost Things,” and back to earth, saving it from the forces of the Great Malevolence.

The newly opened toy store is really the stage established by Ba’al, whose body contains the heart of Mrs. Abernathy, whose hatred of Samuel is unbounded, seeking revenge for his actions in the previous entry. An invitation is sent to Samuel and the two demons as special guests for the opening of the toy store, and Samuel accepts, only to encounter all kinds of dangers as the toys become “alive” and battles occur floor to floor.

As in the previous two entries, the well-written fairy tale is filled with amusing footnotes, historical references and asides. The trilogy is an interesting exercise by a talented writer, but I miss Charlie Parker. Can’t wait till he comes back. That fact notwithstanding, “The Creeps” is recommended.

Creepy and hilarious. An unusual mix but a very successful one. I recommend this particularly for young adults - NOT for very young

children. The footnotes vary between being very lucidly informative and very funny. Thanks for the prompt delivery.

Fun to read and followed the first two books. Going to pass on to my teenage son as it's aimed at his age group.
