Gorilla Tactics by Sheila Grau
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Minions! I want 'em, whether they're the obsequious Glory minions (see Buffy, Season Five if you don't know what I mean) or the cute Despicable Me ones. Minions!
Anyway, this series is about minions and their training to work with Evil Overlords. Unlike many of these books, there aren't as many sly-adult jokes included (I always wonder if the middle grade readers get any of them) but they do take a different view of things like "Beauty and the Beast", a tragedy. I can see this being a hit in middle schools everywhere.
