Summary
Do you dare to delve into the freakishly funny Monstrous Book of Monsters, where nothing is as it seems?

Written by Dr. Thomas Jelly and packed with nauseating novelties and foul facts, this book will teach you how to avoid monsters, show you how to spot them in the news or on the street, and give you a peek inside their dangerous (and smelly) world. At the end, we learn that Dr. Jelly has fallen foul of the infamous book monster, and the readers themselves will be lucky to escape the same fate!
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: ""Written" by Dr. Thomas Jelly, this is a tongue-in-cheek, interactive guide to avoiding, identifying, capturing, and disposing of monsters, should the need arise. Goony cartoons depict monsters hiding behind flaps in a cutaway of a human home ("A fridge boggart is a real pest"); another spread presents the winners of the "Monster Record Breakers" competition, which include a cute pink beast, whose mouth opens to reveal a pop-out cave of ferocious teeth. From monster defense (a "Home Defense Kit" includes a mirror, garlic, and soap) to the debunking of monster myths-werewolves don't exist, but watch out for werefish-monster hunters will have the tools they need to survive.
