Mrs. Frieda’s Session 28 – “You Can’t Have Any Pudding!”

And the Frieda’s Season Premiere continues with Part 2: Middle School.

Spring Crescent is, on the surface, perfectly normal. Normal things happen, normal teachers conduct utterly normal classes, and no one gets sucked into a Lovecraftian alien’s spaceship.

Emma, Scott, and Jingles are dropped directly into this tangled mess. Joined by the psychic girl Molly, who survived her own ghost story, our plucky Middle Schoolers will face down evil.

Spring Crescent draws upon the source material in Ross Payton’s Curriculum of Conspiracy, which can be found at http://arcdream.com/.
