The Monsterologist: A Memoir in Rhyme ghostwriten by Bobbi Katz, illustrated by Adam McCauley
In this book, a monsterologist presents their findings to the reader on a plethora of monsters in the form of correspondence in verse.
What I Thought:
This book isn't my cup of tea, but I'm not so into monsters! However, if you know someone who is...they'll love it! This book reminds me a lot of the Dragonology books that have been so popular without all the manipulatives.
This book covers monsters like werewolves, Medusa, the yeti, trolls, even the Kraken. Each of the monsters is presented in a poem, but also like a letter or other type of correspondence. The illustrations are well done, and very appropriate for this book.
Recommended, especially for kids that enjoy reading about monsters.
