What if the monsters from your favorite horror books were real?
Eddie Fennicks has always been a loner, content to lose himself in a mystery novel by his favorite author, Nathaniel Olmstead. That`s why moving to the small town of Gatesweed becomes a dream come true when Eddie discovers that Olmstead lived there before mysteriously disappearing thirteen years ago. Even better, Eddie finds a handwritten, never-before-seen Nathaniel Olmstead book printed in code and befriends Harris, who`s as much an Olmsteady as he is. But then the frightening creatures of Olmstead`s books begin to show up in real life, and Eddie`s dream turns into a nightmare. Eddie, Harris, and their new friend, Maggie, must break Olmstead`s code, banish all gremlins and monster lake-dogs from the town of Gatesweed, and solve the mystery of the missing author, all before Eddie`s mom finishes writing her own tale of terror and brings to life the scariest creature of all.
