Publisher's Summary

Includes a never-before-published Sookie Stackhouse story!
What could be scarier than the first day of school? How about a crash course in the paranormal from Charlaine Harris and Toni L. P. Kelner, editors of Home Improvement: Undead Edition? Your worst school nightmares - taking that math test you never studied for, finding yourself naked in school assembly, not knowing which door to enter - will pale in comparison to these 13 original stories that take academic anxiety to whole new realms.
In number-one New York Times best-selling author Charlaine Harris’s story "Playing Possum", Sookie Stackhouse brings enough birthday cupcakes for her nephew's entire class but finds she's one short when the angry ex-boyfriend of the school secretary shows up.
When her guardian, Kate Daniels, sends her undercover to a school for exceptional children, teenaged Julie learns an all-new definition of "exceptional", in New York Times best-selling author Ilona Andrews' "Magic Tests".
For those who like fangs with their forensics, New York Times best-selling author Nancy Holder offers "VSI", in which FBI agent Claire is tested as never before in a school for Vampire Scene Investigation. And in New York Times best-selling author Thomas Sniegoski's "The Bad Hour", Remy Chandler and his dog Marlowe find evil unleashed in an obedience school.
You'll need more than an apple to stave off the creatures in these and nine other stories. Remember your first lesson: Resistance is fruitless!

Another good collection from charlaine Harris

Where does An Apple for the Creature rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Middle of the pack. Good read (listen) from some very good authors.

Would you recommend An Apple for the Creature to your friends? Why or why not?

I like these collection of stories to introduce myself to other authors. I found Ilona Andrews Kim Harrison and many others from these shirt story collections. A great way to sample various authors in one setting.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Performance if readers very good

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

These were shirt stories. Some action, some humor, some paranormal creatures.

Any additional comments?

I have quite a few of these collections from Harris, butcher and others. I think they are great for author introductions to the listeners.
