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.

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.

Monster High is BIG in our house. The book series by Lisi Harrison provides tons of humor and adventure for boys and girls. If you or your child is into monsters (especially the classic monsters), you can't go wrong with Monster High. This is the second installment of the series, and finds Cleo de Nile, daughter of The Mummy, trying to remain the Queen B, while her ghoulfriends fight the urge to be themselves.

I dowloaded this book to my kindle and I really enjoyed it. The book series goes on its own different path from the Monster High webisodes and movies. This is long before Monster High existed when the Monsters had to go to a Normie High School and do what they could to appear human and some things about the characters are different but only slightly. It's nice to get a different perspective.

I am an avid fan of YA fiction, but even I have to admit that "Monster High" is even more out of my target demographic then the rest of the books I read. The books are cute, quick and entertaining. I have read both of them in one sitting each. In my mind, that means the books are priced a little on the high side, but I still find myself more then willing to spend the money to purchase them.

"Ghoul Next Door" picks up right after the events in "Monster High". Frankie Stein has potentially announced to the world that monsters exist. These (adorable) monsters want the world to know about and accept them. They want to celebrate their differences and not have to cover them up with normal color make up or clothing that hides their special attributes. This is a great message to the book's true target demongraphic, the tweens.

The story isn't exceptional well written and the plot isn't exactly deep and twisted. The books are nevertheless entertaining. The characters are fun and cartoony, much like their doll counterparts. This book expands on the character "Invisible Billy", who is a lot of fun here. We also finally meet "Julia" or "Ghoulia" from the doll line. Ghoulia is easily my favorite of the dolls and I enjoyed seeing her character introduced. (Yeah, zombies!) Lots of romantic schemes were at play, couples break up and couples get together. The parents and siblings of the respective characters seemed to take a back seat in this story and thats a shame. They really fill out the story and its nice to see them show up.

I have to give Lisi Harrison kudos for her neverending ability to come up with fun 'monster' puns and play on words. They kept me smiling through this book. I also liked seeing more from Cleo's point of view.
