Gr. 7-10. Returning from a gallery where his paintings are on display, high-school student Kyle stops to help a woman with a flat tire. As he reaches for the jack, he finds himself stuffed into the trunk and injected with some sort of formula. He wakes up to discover that he is the size of a Coke bottle and trapped in a dollhouse with three other shrunken kids and a shrunken dog, all prisoners of the demented Mrs. Shepherd. Usually, tales of human shrinkage are played for laughs, but Bunting explores the horror of Kyle's situation, placing a delicious villain at the center of her story. Mrs. Shepherd is a temperamental monster, who treats the children as cozy playthings and becomes sadistic when they dare to cross her. Much of the action involves Kyle's efforts to escape, until he finally hatches a plan that works. Nightmarish at times, but fun, too. Todd Morning
