review 1: I got a real kick out of this one. My 9-year-old enjoyed it, too, when we read it together, but it was hard for him to catch all the allusions. It’s best suited to older readers. As a fan of Edgar Allan Poe, I especially loved Rex’s spoofs of the Raven. The Headless Horseman’s blog was great. But the Kaiju Haiku page really stole my heart. This is strange collection of poems and art, not a typical storybook. Throughout, the artwork is gorgeous and varied – photographs, cartoons, paintings, line drawings – and the stories/skits are funny. Any reader is bound to like a few of them. Definitely worth looking for and rereading.
review 2: This was another super-cute book by Adam Rex. The inner cover of the book has a little comic with the monsters stopping
... more by and thinking that you, the reader, are Frankenstein and they are wishing you a happy birthday. The mummy just says, "Meh." The rest of the book is written in the rhyming and short story style just like the first book. It really is very cute. At the end of the book the author says (in rhyme, of course) that he knows that Frankenstein is really the doctor and not the monster and to stop writing in to tell him that. less

Hilariously warped and wickedly sarcastic. Middle grade kids are sure to love it!
Great collection of poetry and mixture of image formats.
So cute, funny, and clever.
