Written by Catherine Egan

The story begins with a boy named Ben Harp who sees his teacher’s watch crawling across the hallway. He thinks he must be dreaming, but actually he has just seen his first Sneak–an interdimensional mischief-maker which can borrow the form of any ordinary object. These sprites keep showing up as ordinary objects and Ben and his friends must find a way to stop them before things get out of control. This is a great read for fans of fantasy and school stories. There is lots of action and fun characters, but I thought the book was a little slow and the characters were not endearing to me.
