Monsterology is a great book – I loved it! There were monsters that I had never heard of before, but I know all about them because this book has all the facts. The author jokes about the characters, for example: “Golem, Fashion Rating: D-. He dresses as a sexton- that’s a church officer who rings bells and digs graves. Ouch!” This is just one of the hilarious facts in this awesome book.

If you have seen Lord of the Rings, the Golem in the illustration in this book looks nothing at all like the Golem in the movie. It gives you a different prospective on what he might look like. The illustrations are very detailed, and also very different from what you see in movies and other books.

You can enjoy this book by reading the quick facts, which are funnier, or you can read the whole thing with all the bigger facts, and more writing. I’d recommend this book for ages 9 to 13, for anyone who likes books that make fun of scary things. I give this book five stars.
