Monsterologist (Review)

The Monsterologist: A Memoir in RhymeThe Monsterologist: A Memoir in Rhyme by Bobbi Katz

I bought this book based on a mention on Poetry Friday and it has been a huge hit with my two monsters (boys, 7 & 11). The rhymes are a joy to read aloud — the language is simultaneously funny and sophisticated:

“Scientific discipline insists I should stay leery

and not assume the truth is found

when what in truth is theory.”

What really makes the book though, is the complexity and variety of the illustrations: the fold-out letters, the maps, the visual humor. Each spread is unique and rich in detail.

This book is a must if you have elementary-aged kids who love monsters.
