This is book number 2 in the No Place for Monsters series.

In this spine-tingling follow-up to No Place for Monsters, which Diary of a Wimpy Kid author Jeff Kinney called "wildly imaginative and totally terrifying," a group of unlikely friends must band together to protect their town from the monsters that are threatening to destroy it. 

The storm is coming. Who will survive?

It’s been months since Levi and Kat defeated the Boojum and rescued their town’s forgotten children. But now the strangeness has started again: hundreds of creepy snowmen pop up across town and a bizarre blizzard hits the day before spring break. 

Being trapped in the school overnight by freak weather is bad enough. But an evil is lurking . . . one far worse than ice and wind. Worse than power outages. Even worse than being stuck with teachers and annoying classmates. 

Something is roaming the darkened school halls. Something . . . hungry. Now it’s up to a small group of student survivors—along with some supernatural helpers—to uncover the cold-hearted menace before it takes the entire school.

"A beautifully creepy tale that even those who haven’t read the first title will appreciate. This interactive text encourages readers to engage in the critically important skill of 'reading with a discerning eye' and learning 'to separate fact from hoax,' as readers are invited to play detective with the evidence ­provided....Illustrations enhance the tone as it shifts from spooky to c­omedic. This must-read science- and nature-infused horror story is a rare text that truly ­captivates and stimulates readers’ minds and imaginations." — School Library Journal (starred review)
