Who’s cooking in the school kitchen? Join the super-sleuthing Cryptid Club in The Chupacabra Hoopla, the third book in the hilarious graphic novel chapter book series from Emmy Award-winning writer Michael Brumm and bestselling illustrator Jeff Mack.

The Cryptid Club is hungry for a new adventure! When the school lunches go missing and mysterious spaghetti-sauce tracks lead to the woods, Lily has no choice but to enlist the help of her main nemesis, Daisy, to help catch the crook.

But as the school continues to go without any food, the starving students begin fighting over the last crumbs. Then, the school custodian reports that his sandwich was stolen by a large-eyed creature with sharp claws! Can Lily, Henry, Oliver, Ernie, and Daisy solve the mystery of the Chupacabra before the entire school turns into the hunger games?

Everything is not as it seems in this laugh-out-loud graphic novel series debut by Emmy Award–winning writer for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Michael Brumm and bestselling illustrator Jeff Mack.

Praise For…

“Mack's comical, goggle-eyed figures have outsize emotions, and the frequent sight gags keep the tone cheery and light. A joke-filled monster story about being open-minded while examining the facts, The Cryptid Club checks all the right boxes.” — Booklist
