Handbook on Monsters

The Monster Notebook belongs to Alexander Bopp. He's the leader of the Super Secret Monster Patrol, also known as S.S.M.P. They protect us from the monsters who are just waiting to attack. This notebook contains all of the monsters the S.S.M.P has come into contact with. Each entry includes an illustration, its habitat, diet, behavior, tips, and warnings. That way they can be prepared when facing the monsters.

This monster book is engaging and encourages imagination. At the end, the reader is enlisted into the S.S.M.P. and is given the ingredients to start their own monster notebook. It also encourages the reader to do it with friends which makes it more fun.

I love the fun facts that are with each entry, like "Megaworms smell like caramel corn". This was a fun read that has a creative and well-illustrated monster on each page. The author does an amazing job at creating the monsters and doesn't leave anything out. Even though it involves monsters, there is still a lot of humor.


Final Verdict: This book is perfect for children aged six and up who love monsters. This would be the perfect gift to be given with a blank notebook and some colored pencils.
