Brat has always lived in the isolated castle on the island, taking care of the vicious creatures that his master creates, waiting in terror for the day when they are ready to be put to use.
But then the unthinkable happens.
The monsters get out.
Now Brat must overcome his fears and venture out into the world he has hidden from his whole life.
For the fate of everyone rests on his shoulders alone.Blurb from Lorraine Gregory’s website
This book really knocked me for six. I’d stumbled upon it in the wonderful world of Twitter and pounced. It was in my library faster than you can say, “Aaaaah! Monster!” And when I started reading it, I didn’t stop.
The Maker of Monsters is my kind of book. It’s fast-paced (Rhosgobel rabbits, fast) and there’s more action than you can shake a stick at. The whole book is a rip-roaring rollercoaster, dragging your emotions through heartache, hope, kindness… and MONSTERS!
Think ‘Frankenstein’, but with a sugar-rush.
The characters are so well-imagined that within a few pages I felt like I’d known them all my life. Sherman and Tingle, two of the sweetest monsters, were my favourites. I spent the entire book wanting to take them home with me! This book is a must-read.
I laughed, I shed a tear; The Maker of Monsters has it all.
