About the Book

When Hunter and his twin brother, Zack, hear from Sarah Yulefski that there is going to be a kidnapping in Newfield, they are on high alert. But the more shocking news is yet to come: they figure out that Steadman, their younger brother, is the kidnapper's target. After erecting a rickety lookout tower high in a tree in nearby Werewolf Woods, they discover suspicious activities going on around town: a probably ax murderer is hiding in the cellar of an empty house, Bradley the neighborhood bully is poking at what must be dead bodies in the pond, and a suspicious letter arrives for Mom. Meanwhile, Mom heads to the hospital to give birth to a new sibling whom the boys hope to name Killer Godzilla while hapless Nana tries to hold down the fort at the chaotic Moran family home.


"Readers will appreciate Giff's gentle message that even exasperating relatives (including Fred, the family's untrained pooch, who is kidnapped) are worth defending."—Booklist

"This satisfying sequel [to Hunter Moran Saves the Universe] can be a good starting point for middle-grade readers."—Kirkus Reviews
