Casey writes in his art journal to tell us the story of how monsters keep finding him! There’s a vampire in the attic, and gremlins in the basement. Frankenstein keeps recharging his brain batteries and making the electric bill go up. A huge cephalopod lives in the kiddie pool in the backyard. When a new girl arrives at school, Casey finds out that she is interested in monsters too. And there is a new pink monster in town.
I love the colorful art style! It really draws the reader into the story. The colors are so bright and fun. I love the funny expressions on the characters’ faces. Some of the sketches are just pencil drawings, and some are filled-in with color. It really looks like someone’s journal with text and illustrations thrown all over the page.
I like the pacing of the book, and there is plenty of action to keep your interest. I like the character development, and the monster mysteries that are around every corner. Everyone has something to hide, and that creates a lot of suspense.
The plot does a good job of balancing a lot of different characters. They are all memorable and fun! The comedic writing style is sarcastic and silly. I enjoyed reading it!
