Trapped in Transylvania (Cracked Classics series) by Tony Abbott

I thought this was a really clever way to find out what some of those "classic" books are about without actually having to read them. Frankie and Devin are typical wise-cracking middle school students who try every trick in the book to get out of reading, but then find out that stories can be kind of cool. 

So far I have read the first three books, but will probably end up getting them all.
