In Book 5 in the Creature from My Closet series, Rob Burnside is visited by an especially strange closet creature!
Rob Burnside thinks he's getting the hang of things. It almost seems as if he has learned all he needed to from his unusual closet. Beardy, the doorknob, has it locked up and there are no signs of the closet door opening again.
But something slips from the closet unnoticed and that something is part Gollum, part Cat in the Hat. He's an intense creature with mad rhyming skills. When Rob's family wins a trip to Colorado, something extra makes it into his luggage. Get ready for school fights, train rides, long mysterious hikes, and a creature unlike any of the others. What Rob will discover is epic.

Praise For The Lord of the Hat (The Creature from My Closet #11)…
“Quite funny and has a lot of laugh-out-loud moments. . . . The idea of a hybrid Willy Wonka/Frankenstein character is original and hilarious.” —School Library Journal on the Creature from My Closet series
“Filled with spot-on commentary and a wince-inducing supporting cast, middle grade guys won't be able to keep Wonkenstein to themselves. . . . This pitch-perfect offering should appeal to reluctant readers, not to mention the legion Wimpy Kid fans.” —Shelf Awareness on the Creature from My Closet series
“Skye captures all the silly action in the winning text-plus-cartoons format. . . . Rob's dry commentary on his family, school, and social life is sure to provoke laughs.” —Publishers Weekly on the Creature from My Closet series
“The text is hysterical by itself, but acts as the straight man in relation to the one-two punch of the childlike drawings and captions. . . Get multiple copies of this book; it will fly off the shelves.” —School Library Journal on the Creature from My Closet series
