A Halloween collection of things that go bump in the night -- namely the inimitable Bart Simpson. Prepare to be scared, very scared -- and very entertained, as Bart provides a little bit of black magic. What is Halloween without The Simpsons annual special, and what is the annual special without Bart Simpson's Treehouse of Horror? This long-awaited follow-up to the bestselling Bart Simpson's Guide to Life continues the impressive roll call of HarperCollins's Simpsons publications. Marvel as Lisa combines human DNA from Homer's toenail clippings with a Venus flytrap to create a giant donut-eating plant in 'Little Shop of Homers'. And in another spooktacular story, gasp in horror as a sleazy old enemy gets a slimy new look in a tale of murder, mayhem and mucus that Bart calls 'Sideshow Blob'. Also see Lisa possessed by musical evil spirits in 'The Exorsister'. And just when you thought the terror was over, you'll chew your nails to the quick as Springfield succumbs to the 'Immigration of the Body Snatchers'. Prepare to cringe in fear at the maniacal monstrosity of Matt Groening's genius.

Bart Simpson and the rest of the gang from Springfield star in this hilarious collection of Halloween-themed tales. There are parodies of The Blob (Sideshow Bob turns soft), The Exorcist (Lisa's possessed by Madonna), Invasion of the Body Snatchers (Homer discovers pod people), Cat People (Bart purrs in the moonlight), and Little Shop of Horrors (Mmmm... donuts!). And that's not the half of it! In between these feature comics stories are funny, frightful bits like fake ads featuring the aliens Kang and Kodos, "A Kid's Guide to Monster-Proofing Your Room," "Captain McCallister's Ghost Stories of the Briny Deep," and four Mad Libs-inspired variations of "The Curse of the Thing." Comics fans take note: contributing writers to this collection include stars Mike Allred, Peter Bagge, Paul Dini, Evan Dorkin, Bill Morrison, James Robinson, and Jeff Smith. --Jim PascoeAbout the Author:
