Clumping Kirk Scroggs brings Wiley, his Grampa, and the rest of their eccentric family back for an encore in Curse of the Kitty Litter - whose front cover advises readers to 'Smell the Horror!'

After a legal missive alerts Grampa to an inheritance from his 'fourth cousin-in-law, Lord Rankonstink', the family and Wiley's buddy Jubal head to Badtable Manor. Grampa learns he will inherit the vault's contents only if at least one of them can survive the terrors of a night in the mansion. Grampa's rejoinder? 'I've climbed a live volcano, I've battled hungry zombies, I've eaten Gramma's cooking for seventy-five years - oh, I know terror.'

Night time at Badtable Manor proves eventful. There's an encounter with a ghost, followed by waves of attacks by animated clowns, line-dancing cockroaches, and a Mayonnaise Monster. Only Grampa braves them all - by sleeping soundly - and so wins the gold-plated, diamond-studded prize. But after they take it home, weird things start happening, and a monstrous 'carpet soiler from the nether regions' manifests.

How do they drive it away and what does the vengeful spirit do before they succeed? You'll just have to read the adventure yourself if you want to know the ending! As always, Grampa & Wiley bring us growling, yowling, howling humor in Curse of the Kitty Litter.
