Format: Hardcover
If you have ever wondered how Dr. Frankenstein's monster views his inventor, what the Loch Ness Monster thinks about being the mysterious center of attention, or the whys and wherefores of werewolves, trolls, ogres and other fiends, just ask THE MONSTEROLOGIST, a.k.a., Bobbi Katz. Bobbi has been rewarding children for decades with poetry at once deft and delightful, as witness her latest foray into the world of the woolly and weird. The collection includes, among other gems, a frightfully clever poem by the Verbivore in which the reader is asked to provide that most important of all the parts of speech.
Adam McCauley's illustrations, purportedly fabricated with paper, spaghetti, twigs, as well as "things found on the street," blend devilishly with the poems. Kids who are looking for a book of verse that's strikingly different--and funny!--will have to wait a long time before this imaginative tribute to monsters meets its rival.

I bought this book based on a mention on Poetry Friday and it has been a huge hit with my two monsters (boys, 7 & 11). The rhymes are a joy to read aloud -- the language is simultaneously funny and sophisticated:

"Scientific discipline insists I should stay leery
and not assume the truth is found
when what in truth is theory."

What really makes the book though, is the complexity and variety of the illustrations: the fold-out letters, the maps, the visual humor. Each spread is unique and rich in detail.
