  • Escape from the Dungeons of Snerbville is the third installment in the quirky, creepy, hilarious Bonkers series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Patrick Carman.

    Barker Mifflin is back!

    Sort of. He fell into a hole—or more accurately, he rode a forty-foot chicken down into the depths of Snerbville.

    Will he be lost there forever, or will he finally solve the mystery behind Colossal Chemistry?

    With the help of his new pal Tilda Huxley—who happens to be the size of a Barbie Doll, thanks to scientific experiments gone wrong—he might just have a shot at finding out the real reason everyone in his hometown is so tight lipped about its secrets. But first he has to avoid getting shrunk himself, or worse, getting discovered by certain fuzzy creatures with a ferocious appetite for garbage … or the next best thing.

  • If Lemony Snicket rebooted the Goosebumps franchise, you’d have something close to Bonkers: the quirky, creepy, hilarious new series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Patrick Carman.

    Barker Mifflin never leaves home without his go bag, his army boots, and his trusty flyswatter. As the town of Nevermind’s resident eleven-year-old survivalist, Barker knows catastrophe can strike anytime, anywhere. But now that school is out for the summer, he might be able to let his guard down. After all, he and his friends all got jobs picking strawberries at McFadden Farm. What could possibly go wrong?

    Turns out: everything.

    Things get weird from day one when Barker meets Supreme Commander McJerry—a teenage crew boss who loves making kids miserable—and his younger sister Megan, a kid with more secrets than an international superspy. And the terror in Jenny’s armpit seems downright normal compared to what’s hidden in the barn!

    Join Barker Mifflin as he pieces together a forty-foot-tall mystery that could crush the whole town of Nevermind. No amount of training could prepare anyone to survive THIS!

    Go with Jenny, Fen, and Barker as they visit an abandoned chemistry lab, discover curious creatures called Snerbs, and uncover a secret so big it might just eat the entire planet. It could happen!
