Fat Camp Commandos

by Daniel Pinkwater

Kids of all sizes think about being fat or thin or in between. This book is about kids sent to camp to lose weight. Could you go to a camp where the sugarless syrup on the one pancake you get tastes like mouthwash? The camp is in Mountainburg. Home of fortune-telling chickens, the infamous Tator Family, and Camp Noo Yoo. Yes, Camp Noo Yoo, where frantic parents send their pudgy little darlings in hopes that a diet of shredded carrots with raisins will turn them into pre-adolescent fashion plates. Or at least help them shed a few of those socially unacceptable extra pounds. Fed up with the jeering and abuse at Camp Noo Yoo, Ralph and Sylvia Nebula and their new friend, Mavis Goldfarb, hop a bus back home to Pokooksie. There, they seek revenge. Revenge on their parents. Revenge on Dr. Frizzbender, founder of Anti-Fat Day. And revenge on Richard "Dick" Tator, the overweight and overbearing owner of Camp Noo Yoo. Enter the world of Pinkwater, where size is not an obstacle, but a source of strength, and where your favorite poison, be it a Twinkie, a Krispy Kreme doughnut, or a banana split, is always at arms reach. This book may have the shortest chapters in history. There are 62 chapters in 89 pages. Chapter 15 is only 10 words long. Chapter 55 is so short that it's completely missing. Read this book with someone you love--and treat yourself to cookies and milk while you're at it.

Fat Cat of Underwhere

by Bruce Hale Shane Hillman

Cats are not meant to save the world. Fitz the cat is supposed to be enjoying the normal activities savored by those of the feline persuasion-napping (a lot), nibbling on house plants, sharpening his claws on expensive furniture, and, most importantly, never, ever doing what a human wants him to. But instead, thanks to Zeke, Stephanie, and Hector-those meddling, tuna-hatin', whiskerless kids who dragged him down to Underwhere-Fitz has bigger fish to fry (though, of course, he prefers his fish raw). Not only has he started thinking like a human, he's actually helping them recover the stolen Scepter of Underwhere, battle a wild pack of triceradoodles, outwit a roaming band of savage mice, and foil the plans of the strange new movie director in town, who happens to smell awfully familiar. . . .

Fatal

by Harold Schechter

In an era that produced some of the most vicious female sociopaths in American history, Jane Toppan would become the most notorious of them all. AN ANGEL OF MERCY In 1891, Jane Toppan, a proper New England matron, embarked on a profession as a private-duty nurse. Selfless and good-natured, she beguiled Boston's most prominent families. They had no idea what they were welcoming into their homes.... A DEVIL IN DISGUISE No one knew of Jane's past: of her mother's tragic death, of her brutal upbringing in an adoptive home, of her father's insanity, or of her own suicide attempts. No one could have guessed that during her tenure at a Massachusetts hospital the amiable "Jolly Jane" was morbidly obsessed with autopsies, or that she conducted her own after-hours experiments on patients, deriving sexual satisfaction in their slow, agonizing deaths from poison. Self-schooled in the art of murder, Jane Toppan was just beginning her career -- and she would indulge in her true calling victim by victim to become the most prolific domestic fiend of the nineteenth century.

A Fatal Attachment (Charlie Peace #2)

by Robert Barnard

Lydia Perceval was - apparently - a charming and gifted woman. As a successful biographer, she led a privileged and comfortable life in her well-ordered, luxurious country-cottage. She felt terribly sorry for her sister, married to an unemployed drunk, mother of two sons, both of whom had loved their adorable Aunt Lydia much more than their parents. Lydia had a way with young people, particularly boys. She knew how to bring out the best in them. As it happened, her sister's two boys had proved something of a disappointment - Maurice had demeaned himself by going to work in television, and Gavin, the best, had died a hero in the Falklands War. Lydia felt a little lost without some young people to groom into greatness. And then she met the Bellingham boys. It was like a reply of the past, two bright young boys, one dark, one fair, just waiting for Lydia to take over their lives. But before she could do so, Lydia was strangled. The motives were subtle, obscure. And there were very few clues. But as Superintendent Mike Oddie started his investigations, he began to suspect that quite a few people hadn't liked the charming Lydia Perceval at all.
