It’s not every day that a vampire borrows your pencil. When was the last time you sat next to a werewolf in maths?
Meet Trixie Grimble, the newest pupil at Monstacademy. Unfortunately, in a school filled with monsters, she’s the only ordinary girl and when she’s asked to help prepare for the annual Halloween parade, everything starts to go wrong.
Oh, and she’s also been kicked out of her bedroom to make room for a cat circus.
Fans of Jill Murphy and Isla Fisher will adore the silly humour and loveable characters in this delightful modern classic.
This was a really fun read and I can imagine it being a story that is loved and read over and over – it certainly has some brilliant quirky characters!
The chapter length is good and I liked that the paragraphs were kept fairly short to keep attention. The story is easy to follow and the main characters are great – well described and likeable. The images are lovey!
Four stars from me for this one – a well written story – looking forward to reading the second book in the series!!
