Lumber This Way Comes by Joe R. Lansdale
Vol. 2 of The Lost Lansdale series is a children's story. It's a skimpy
tale of innocence and growing up, of adults vs. kids and just a smooth story
that only Joe Lansdale could pull off.
The neighborhood is looking sick...and 2 boys decide it is because of a new
house that showed up recently and without any of the adult's noticing. The kids
decide to stalk it at night to see if what they think is true.
What they find out is so
out-of-this-world and unbelievable that when they are confronted with saving
their neighborhood, all they can do is go by instinct. The scenes of this fight
are so vivid and hilarious, and the ending is solid. .
