DuckTales may have ended on TV (sigh), but the adventures of Huey, Dewey, and Louie will continue in a new middle-grade book series from author Tommy Greenwald and illustrator Elisa Ferrari: the mystery-themed Duckscares. The first entry, The Nightmare Formula, is out now, and io9 has a peek inside.

Here’s a little summary of the book first: “When the boys are suddenly (and confusingly) selected for a prestigious exchange program, they head off to Germany, where they learn about soccer, the local culture... and a spooky plot plaguing their new friends. What’s all this about a haunting?”

We’ve got Chapter 9 to share with you today; the set-up is that Huey, Dewey, Louie, and friends have just visited a toy and sports store run by a certain Dr. Z, who gives them a new soccer ball that seems to have some unusual qualities.

Duckscares: The Nightmare Formula is available now.
