About This Book
These Misfit Monsters Are a Scream!
Packed with funny illustrations and ghoulish wordplay, this hilarious monster/sports story mash-up stars a lovable cast of creepy characters sure to score big with young readers!
The Monster League Basketball season has started and Scream Team is having a rough start. Dennis the vampire is frustrated because he can't seem to get any time on the court (he always panics and turns into a bat) and if they can't find a sponsor soon, the team is going to be kicked out of the league. So, Dennis introduces the team to a mysterious mole who wants to sponsor them. It seems like a great idea, until the mole wants the team to play in platform shoes, wear uniforms with bells and whistles sewn on, and call their plays backwards. Then, the team starts to wonder if they're being tricked!
