Publisher's Summary

Award-winning author Rick Yancey has captivated young adult readers with his popular Alfred Kropp novels, the first of which was named a Best Book for Children by Publishers Weekly and was a finalist for the Carnegie Medal. Now Yancey begins a gripping new series with The Monstrumologist. Dr. Warthrop is a scientist who tracks and studies real-life monsters. Assisted by his 12-year-old apprentice, Will Henry, Dr. Warthrop discovers a pod of Anthropophagi and launches a hunt to destroy the foul beasts.

Excellent naration brought the horror to life

Any additional comments?

I expected more of an adventure book than a horror novel. It was definitely the latter. However, the rich text and excellent narration made this a series I will continue to read.

Things do go bump in the night

What did you love best about The Monstrumologist?

The writing was so vivid, you could taste the fear in the air along with the story characters.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Will Henry, and secretly, Kearns

Which scene was your favorite?

When they ambush the Anthropophagi pack

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Throughout the book the relationship between Will and the Doctor evokes both anger and compassion

Any additional comments?

Although at times sickening in the decriptions of the horrors, its a verbal car crash that you can not turn away from.
