Groovy Reviews: Stop Eight on DC Green’s Monster Blog Tour


DC Green’s Monster School has only been in bookstores for six days, but the reviews so far have been uniformly five-star…
‘I loved this book. I fell in love with the wonderful cast of monster characters. When I finished, I wanted more – I wanted the second book in the series. This is one book I wish I’d written. Well done, D.C., for writing a classic.’
– Robyn Opie Parnell, Goodreads.
‘A wild, wise-cracking ride. I loved it.’
– Ian Irvine.
‘A monster mash of hilariously epic proportions… Readers, young and old, will recognise many students/young people, with whom they have interacted and relish the humour and innate sense of justice expressed through the characters and their actions. this one will be a real winner with both boys and girls. The characters are endearing, despite their monstrous attributes and the reader becomes fully engaged with the whole adventure – and who can resist a fully grown dragon? Magnificent, dangerous and wise, Kalthazari completely dominates the climax. Highly recommended for capable readers from 10+.’
– Sue Warren, teacher-librarian, Just So Stories.
‘Fast moving, exciting and drops information at just the right rate… Altogether, great fun, with the usual DCG mix of big-hearted weirdness.’
– Sally Odgers.
‘A mind blowing adventure with twists and turns of all kinds. Kids of all ages will enjoy this fantastic book.’
– Liam, aged 11.
‘Jam-packed with action and adventure… From the first to the last page you’ll be hooked in and barracking for PT and the Dead Gang.’
– Matt Porter, Goodreads.
‘DC Green has a truly frightening imagination… Wrapped up in grossness and humour, MonsterSchool is a story about acceptance, tolerance and how the little people can make a difference. Hilarious and disgusting, middle-school readers will love it!’
– Claire Saxby, Aussie Reviews.
MonsterSchoolis a rollicking read, filled with snappy dialogue and wonderfully witty characters that illustrator, Willis, has captured to a ‘T’. In true Ford Street style, this latest addition to their catalogue is a beautifully illustrated and tightly-woven read that will find a loyal legion of fans.’
– Jenny Mounfield, Pass It On.
‘It’s fast, funny and FREAKY!’
– DC Green.
