Panic envelops the residents of Pollilop Drop when Mystic Miz, using her crystal ball, foresees a purple apocalypse sweeping through the town. As she hurries to warn the other little rotters of this forthcoming purple meltdown, a few of the kids give their own interpretations of what this violent violet vision could be. Fear mongering, finger pointing, and general paranoia ensue in this third book from the sweet rot series by artist and writer Joe Simko. Young adult–ages 13-18.
