Two friends decide to sneak into an abandoned science laboratory to explore only to find that the lab isn’t at all empty. Strange security guards patrol the grounds. Even stranger, almost all of the doors inside are locked. And they keep hearing an eerie, chittering sound around every corner. When they try to leave, they realize that the place is more like a labyrinth than a laboratory, and like most labyrinths, this maze has a monster waiting at the finish line. This series of Hi-Lo books is sure to sink its teeth into any reluctant reader at the very first page. Each book includes discussion and writing questions, a glossary, and educational back matter.
