Book Description

Ghoulfriends Forever is a brand-new Monster High series, introducing three new monster characters. As new students, the trio must navigate the bewildering array of cute monster boys, established cliques, and monster-rific subjects like Mad Science, G-ogre-phy, and Physical Deaducation. As if that weren't hard enough, something strange and sinister seems to be happening at the school. Popular girls like Frankie Stein and Cleo de Nile are acting weird-and all signs point to everyone's new favorite teacher, Miss Sylphia Flapper. Can the new GFFs expose the fave as a fraud, or will they succumb to peer pressure?

4.0 out of 5 stars Scary Good Time! August 31, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am an adult fan of Monster High. I collect the dolls and think the webisodes are adorable. Additionally I am a fan of all things paranormal as well as an avid reader. I was somewhat disappointed when I learned that Lisi Harrison's Monster High books were no longer being written and published. I then learned that a new Monster High book series was being released written by a different author. Then I became more concerned when I learned they were being marketed to a younger age group. I was really leery about "Ghoulfriends Forever"

I was positively surprised. This new series is much more true to the Monster High shows and doll line. I loved Headmistress Bloodgood losing her head now and then! I also really enjoyed seeing appearances by even some of the shows background characters. While I would have liked to see bigger roles by Cleo, Frankie, Ghoulia, Draculaura, Clawdeecn, and Lagoona, I did really enjoy getting to know the three newest Ghouls, Robecca, Venus, and adorable Rochelle. I also liked that they portrayed Monster High as having dorms for students who don't have families that reside in town. The cover of this book is breathtaking and I really liked the black and white drawings that opened each chapter.

What I wasn't so crazy about? The book wasn't too low of a reading level but I can see where younger fans more in the targer demographic will be able to read this book. It was still enjoyable reading for me but I would have liked the book to have been slightly more detailed. The mystery was solved very easily which is to be expected. Still this book was worth reading and I am glad that they will be releasing more installments.

I originally bought the Monster High "young adult" series of 4 books for my 8 year old niece who's a big Monster High fan. However, I was VERY disappointed at the messages those books reinforced over and over. I thought Monster High was about embrasing differences and being kind, but those books were exactly the opposite. They reinforced beauty over brains and being "mean/cool" over being nice. They reinforced that it is acceptable to make fun of boring, smart, "ugly" people but, heaven forbid if anyone makes fun of the gorgous, dim-witted Monsters!!! There was NOTHING in those books that was appropriate for the typical Monster High fan-base, namely 7-13 year old girls. btw, those 4 books went in the trash and will NOT be given to my niece. That's how bad they are. The woman who wrote them should really be ashamed of herself.

Then I found this book. I must say that THIS is what I thought Monster High is all about. The characters are kind and helpful and focus on friendship in the right ways. They are not overly concerned with looks, make-up or clothes. They are just genreally NICE characters! THIS book will be going to my niece as soon as I finish it!!! :-) I can't wait for THIS author to continue the series!!! Good job!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Ghoul-rate! August 26, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This Book is awesome and yes I actually read it! First off The book itself is a nice size and perfect to take with you anywhere you want. The pages are easy to read and yet don't talk down on you at a grade school level ( like alot of Children's book do ). The artwork is fantastic and really does look like the characters, and gives just a little more for your imagination to work with, and BEST OF ALL, it actually takes place at MONSTER HIGH unlike the other books. SO if you want a good book or want to start reading Monster High the way it should be this book is for you, and I can't recommend it enough!

5.0 out of 5 stars New Monster High series September 7, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is based on the online TV series, not modified like in Lisi Harrison's books. So for the hardcore fans who want something closer to home get this book. Not to discredit Lisi Harrison's novels as I like them too. But this is a fun read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book October 2, 2013
By GennM
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is really beautiful. I love that it was hard cover and had illustrations within the book. The test is set up well for young readers. My 8 year old is an avid reader and absolutely loved this book! She read the whole thing in two weeks from getting it.

These stories promote good values. I really wish when I was growing up I had more positive outlets that promoted uniqueness and acceptance of yourself. It is hard to teach a young girl to love herself and value close friendships. it is even harder to instill that being unique, or 'weird' is alright–being true to yourself is important. These books do just that. I am so glad my daughter can escape into these fangtastic books and I will definitely be purchasing more!

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Waste Your Time July 15, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As an adult collector of Monster High dolls, I really loved the first series of books. Clearly they were written for a younger audience, but an adult could still enjoy them and appreciate them. This series, however, is just poorly written. There is no depth to the characters and the story itself is just not interesting. And to leave it as a 'to be continued'? It is all about trying to sell more books and trying to sell more dolls. The first series had an underlying lesson to be learned - toleration of others. This series has no such message. I tried to like it, but I quite agree with other reviewers. Even if you are buying it to read to or with your child, don't bother. I think you will be disappointed, particularly if you have read the books in the other series.
