My nine year-old son LOVES Milrose Munce, and since I heard it doesn't have a US publisher yet, we made a quick video interview as encouragement. Ian thinks Milrose Munce would make a great series -- and I agree. Smart, funny, Milrose and his friends Deeply Damaged Dave and Arabella do what we all long to -- take on the squares, and win.

4 full disclosure im a 12 year old guy. this book is really awesome. my mom actually MADE me read it which is usually BAD but this book is serious funny. it pretty much has everything, magic, ghosts, girls. its unrealistic because uh there are really torn up ghosts running arounfd a school that a guy and his girlfriend can see but its also mega realistic at the same time because its just u know like any other school. if you have to read something for school or something i would pick this book.

Douglas Anthony Cooper's book is truly a wonderful book. I downloaded the Kindle edition and found myself wrapped up in the story within minutes. I only wish I hadn't read it so fast! I guess I'll just have to read it again, so I can re-enter the world of Milrose Munce.

The story is great. The characters are fun, quirky and entertaining. Where this book truly shines is the language. A lot of YA fiction seems to strive for Hemmingway simplicity in vocabulary and in many cases talks down to its audience. This one pulls out the GRE rolodex and makes no apologies.

Repeatedly, I found myself amazed at the masterful use of the English language. Mr. Cooper paints a masterpiece of words as assuredly as master painters fill a canvas with color and form.

If you don't have a kindle (to look up words) you may want to keep a dictionary handy. For me half of the fun was the author's ability challenge me with new words (that always upon lookup revealed themselves to be the perfect choice). I found myself using the dictionary function a lot but it was fun (like a detective story on the side).

Want your kid to improve his chances at a high vocabulary score for the SAT/ACT? Give them this book and they'll have so much fun they won't even realize they're learning.

I've always been a huge fan of demented, humorous gothic, and this

book is now at the top of my list when I have to recommend books to my

demented friends. Incredibly funny, and deeply creepy, Milrose Munce

reminds me of the greatly missed Charles Addams cartoons in the New

Yorker. This is certainly not just a "children's book" - the writer

is a stylist, and while kids will probably adore the novel, they're

not likely to appreciate just how well it's written.

For those of you who prefer the DVD Director's cut of a movie to the theatrical version - this is kind of what that is, in Milrose book format. Some of it is very subtle, while other chapters are essentially re-written with all new scenes added. Knowing that I'd want to review this and having a horrific memory I broke out the original so that I could compare the two, here and there when I found myself asking myself "Hmm, is this part a little different?" What did I find? Yes, there are parts that were edited so subtly that you'd have to either have the book memorized or be comparing them side by side to notice. On the other hand, many of the edits were so obvious that even with said bad memory, I recognized immediately they were in fact edits - no need to compare the two editions to jog my memory as the entire chapter felt new to me. Never fear, it's still the same Milrose you loved if you read the original (you did love him didn't you?) -- it's just MORE of him and some new... well you'll have to read it to find out what the new is.

So is it worth buying the "Expanded" Version of Milrose?
- If you haven't read Milrose and have been at all considering reading it - YES this is the version to read.

- If you loved the original edition of Milrose - YES, the extras are worth it, I'm not disappointed that I bumped it to the top of my to read list.

- If you were only so-so about the first book - You can probably pass on this one as it's not going to be enough to change your mind about the book.

For me? I'm impressed enough with this book and author that I've already offered to buy a copy for someone else, if that tells you anything.

I am a serious devotee of Oscar Wilde, so I'm always excited to see a Wilde quotation at the front of a novel. Even more satisfying is to find that the book lives up to the glorious silliness of Earnest. This is a completely ridiculous novel - the highest praise I can think of.

Milrose Munce and the Den of Professional Help is categorized as a "Young Adult" book, but is no more a true YA book than the Harry Potter series is. Cooper's descriptive prose, witty dialogue and evocative adolescent angst is dead-on and very, very funny. Milrose Munce and the Den of Professional Help so well worth reading, and getting virtually dog-eared. Read Milrose. It's all the Professional Help you'll need.

Wow! Is anyone else reading this?
The penny thing is not all that surprising - publishers are doing this a lot these days with new books they predict are going to become really big: they put them up as e-books for nothing, hoping that the word of mouth takes off... there are zillions of free books on amazon now, so the... Read More

Whats up with this book?
I was wondering the same thing. I haven't been able to put my Kindle down since downloading it. I told a fellow teacher about it, and went to send her the Amazon link. I knew there must have been a mistake when I saw the price. $218.00?! If I was going to shell out that kind of dough, I'd go... Read More

what the heck is going on with this book?
A lot of copyrighted kindle books are free or nearly free for a limited time. This book started out costing a penny, then became unavailable in the US, then was available for $9.99, and now it's a penny again. It should remain available for a while, but the current price probably won't last.
