I love Lisa Harrison's books they're the best!

Admittedly, sometimes during the book I kept remembering a book I read about the Salem Witch Trials.

Format: Paperback
My 11 year old daughter purchased this book from her elementary school book fair. While she has all the dolls and has seen all the videos, which are all very cute, on page 23 of the book is a line about sexting. It definitely isn't graphic by any means and not core the the story line, but it did leave me with my 5th grader asking what sexting is.

We're not prudish parents by any means, but that assumes a level of maturity in a reader that many grade school kids aren't ready for. If yours is, more power to them, but I thought it would be prudent to let other parents that may not want their child reading about it know that its in there. I'm not preaching one way or the other, but I think its important for parents to be able to make informed decisions about what their little kids are reading.

If the author feels the need to explore such topics with her readers, the publisher should at least give parents a heads up since they are marketing it to elementary school kids.

My 9 year old bought this book at our elementary school book fair. She started reading it right away and within the first day showed me where one character says "high dam!". A few days later she came home from school showing me where the characters are talking about "sexting". We then took the book away and I have contacted the leader of the book fair and will complain to Scholastic also. I glanced through the book some more, the characters call another character a "bee-och". Again, not for elementary kids. I don't know who this book would be appropriate for. Hope this helps concerned parents make a good decision on this book.

I'd purchased the first Monster High book on a whim, as my daughter is into the dolls. I quickly discovered that the book is very different from the background given for the dolls, but that did not detract from my enjoyment of the story. I enjoyed it immensely, laughed out loud, and nearly screamed in frustration when I turned the page and discovered the book had ended!
Last night I read the second book, and absolutely loved it! I laughed out loud and growled in frustration when this one ended. Now I will impatiently await the release of the third one this fall...

*I may be 33 and not into fashion, and was totally clueless about the music references, but I was reminded so much of one of my favorite shows that I enjoyed every word! (The super cute know they're cute and they make fun of the frumpily-dressed girl, it's a little like Ugly Betty). Definitely a great read if you want to "escape from reality" for a few hours!

While we learn some possible secrets about the human Melody in this the title GHOUL NEXT DOOR refers to a TV special Frankie and friends try to come up with to turn around the monster hunting media left off in book one.

Over all this book is far better than the first with several uses of Deus stone cold stare, Cleo Egyptian heritage; some new background on Blue's family and her being a transfer student, Frankie stitch together and other monsters and their traits. Among the new characters who get a lot of page time is Billy the Invisible boy who want to help stop the hunt for the Frankenstein girl who lost her head at the school dance. While the ghouls are still in hiding at school this book focus more about their life as RADS outside of school along with their normal human friends who want to support them. Even introduce to Frankie and Cleo's pets. Becca think that Bret preferring a ghoul like Frankie over a human like her has to be mind control and has started her own group of monster hater. Cleo don't like or trust Melody because she human and wants to do all she can to shut down The Ghoul Next Door TV product as well as convince her fashion ghoul friends to be in teen vogue magazine with her on their Egyptian lay out. Nice to meet Cleo family in this one as well as have shadow images of different Monster High characters at the top of each chapter.

Reading Monster High and Monster High: The Ghoul Next Door, I have found the series okay so far. It isn't something I'd wish to read over and over again, but if bored I'd pick the books up. They are light reads despite the many chapters and aren't terrible. They just aren't amazing either.

While nothing like the Mattel doll line with the small journals as well as nothing like the web shorts on MonsterHigh.com the books at least lack in plot holes, continuity slip ups and forgotten facts.

As long as you don't expect the book to be like the Mattel line, you'll do just fine. This is less fantasy, alternate universe than those. Set in our time and our universe, it has slight fantasy in the fact that monster are among us and have been for ages. This series is on survival, acceptance, fear and change.

At least that seems to be the core. On the outside it is full of notes like fashion, labels, music of 2009 to now... (Which can be annoying - you just have to blur it out in your mind like how some can blur out boring teacher lectures. :P) While that gives setting it also limits this book to a time period that will fade. What it does give is small insights of the characters' stances in a school setting. Instead of flat out saying what rank, clique and so forth a character is in, these tidbits tell enough to be of some use.

Having seen the web shorts, I also find that the books gives people a new view of the characters they like be it minimal to substantial. I love how it gives great expansion to JD/Jackson and a different look to the relationships of Cleo, Clawdeen, Lagoona/Blue and Draculaura.
