Nic Bishop, one of the most terrifying authors in children's literature today, has done it again with his new book, Snakes.

We gerbils hear a lot of kids talk about how scary R.L. Stine's books are (they are located right next to our cage) but clearly these kids have never read anything by Nic Bishop. He's the scariest there is!
