Welcome to the Weenie Zone! Acclaimed author David Lubar is back with Beware the Ninja Weenies, his sixth collection of Warped and Creepy Tales—a series of spooky stories for young readers

Stranded aliens seek out Earth’s most intelligent species. (Hint: It’s not us.) A bully discovers the meaning of “spatial displacement.” Two girls find out why you should never annoy a witch. When a swarm of sneaking, slashing, scurrying ninja weenies invades their neighborhood, a boy and his best friend find a way to fight back.

Here are thirty-three hilarious and harrowing stories that will scare you, make you laugh, or see the world in a whole new way. Find out where David got the idea for each story at the end of the book.

Don’t be a weenie. Read these stories. If you dare!
