Childrens author Obert Skye who created the Leven Thumbs book series has a new series: The Creature from My Closet (Henry Holt and Co., $12.99). Its about Rob, who tosses all the books hes supposed to read into his closet, which was once a science lab. When strange creatures start showing up a mix of characters from the books such as Wonkenstein and Potterwookie Robs life gets interesting. Skye will be in Boise this weekend for a book signing.
