As I was reading, the kids were busy trying to figure out what would happen next. They always wanted to keep on reading. I was surprised they liked it, but the different activities throughout the book kept them interested.

Young Reader Reaction

This is the second book in the Extreme Monsters series. The author and illustrator are new, but they have maintained the formula for success achieved in the first book.

Pros:

The characters, setting, and plot strongly appeal to the intended audience. The author has not only produced a good story but as embellished it by including games, puzzles, and riddles that positively engage the reader.

Cons:

None.
