Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up—Featuring plenty of edge-of-your-seat action, this offering from the director of Pan's Labyrinth and the author of Scowler (Delacorte, 2013) won't disappoint. In the late 1960s, eight-year-old James Sturges and his brother Jack were riding bikes at dusk, racing to get home before dark. Taking a shortcut under a bridge in the woods, they were attacked by a monstrous, shadowy creature with razor-sharp claws, glowing red eyes, and shaggy black fur. Though James barely escaped with his life, he never saw his brother Jack again. Now, many years later, James's 15-year-old son Jim suddenly starts seeing terrifying red-eyed monsters that no one else seems to see. When one creature pulls Jim under his bed one night, Jim learns of his own troll-hunting legacy and reluctantly enters an epic battle between trolls and humans. This work features an eclectic and endearing cast of troll and human characters. Even though the pacing is a bit choppy, moving from fast-paced in one chapter to slow in the next, the heart-pounding opening chapter would make an excellent library or classroom read-aloud. This funny, gory first series installment may engage reluctant readers, particularly those familiar with del Toro's horror films. Beautifully creepy, full-color artwork is sprinkled throughout, but it often appears well after the scene it depicts. VERDICT More gruesome than scary, this title will be a hit with teens and adults who love action-packed, dark fantasy adventures.—Leigh Collazo, Dulwich College, Suzhou, China

About the Author

Guillermo del Toro is one of the most creative and visionary artists of his generation whose distinctive style is showcased through his work as a filmmaker, screenwriter, producer and author. Born in Guadalajara, Mexico, del Toro first gained worldwide recognition for the 1993 Mexican-American co-production "Cronos," a supernatural horror film. In 2004, del Toro directed and co-wrote the action-adventure sci-fi thriller "Hellboy" starring Ron Perlman in the title role. Del Toro earned international acclaim as the director, writer and producer of the 2006 fantasy drama "Pan's Labyrinth." In all, the film garnered more than 40 international awards and appeared on more than 35 critics' lists of the year's best films. In 2013, del Toro wrote and directed the epic sci-fi action-adventure "Pacific Rim" starring Charlie Hunnam and Idris Elba, which has grossed over $400 million worldwide.

Del Toro has also turned his attention to publishing. With novelist Chuck Hogan, he co-authored the vampire horror novel "The Strain," which was published in June 2009 by William Morrow. They have since collaborated on "The Fall" and "The Night Eternal" which make up "The Strain Trilogy." All three books debuted as The New York Times top-ten bestsellers. Dark Horse Comics has also issued a graphic novel series adapted from the trilogy. In October 2013, Harper Design published "Guillermo del Toro Cabinet of Curiosities," a lavishly illustrated book that contains notes, drawings, and untold creatures from del Toro's private journals and filmmaking diaries, with never-before-seen characters, art, and ideas of things to come.

Daniel Kraus is the award-winning author of Scowler and Rotters, and is the director of six feature films. He lives with his wife in Chicago.
