A compilation of short stories by David Lubar. The title of the book comes from one of the short stories featured inside--all of which are childrens' horror stories, some of which are quite...[[NightmareFuel disturbing.]]

Several compilations following this were called ''The Invasion of the Road Weenies," "The Curse of the Campfire Weenies," "Battle of the Red Hot Pepper Weenies," "Attack of the Vampire Weenies," and "Beware the Ninja weenies".
