Annotation: New to the Random House list is author Bill Doyle with a tale of monsters, magic, and mayhem.

After Keats and Henry lose their bikes, they need money—fast. So the help-wanted ad at the supermarket seems ideal for them. All they have to do is weed Hallway House's garden, find some lightbulbs in the attic, sweep the garage . . . and battle a shark-headed zombie. But no one told them about the giant bookworms in the library, the toe-biting carpet in the halls, and the kitchen sinkhole!

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2011 Fall)
Cousins Henry and Keats accept an odd job at Hallway House to earn money for new bikes. Cryptic instructions list daunting tasks including "battle and defeat the shark-headed zombie." With some luck--and magical aids--the boys emerge victorious after a wild but confusing day of chasing, fighting, and conjuring. The story is convoluted but entertaining; shadowy black-and-white drawings help clarify the action. Copyright 2011 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
