Book Review: Scary School – Monsters on the March #2

Monsters on the March (Scary School Series #2) by Derek The Ghost and illustrated by Scott M. Fischer.

About the Book: As winners of last year’s Ghoul Games, the students of Scary School are off to Monster Forest. School may be scary, but the forest has a few frights of its own, including:

• Bearodactyls—so terrifying we can’t even show you pictures of them
• Princess Zogette, the Monster King’s toad-faced daughter, who falls for Charles Nukid . . . hard
• Captain Pigbeard, fearsome leader of the Monster-Pirates and Princess Zogette’s fiancé (well, former fiancé, thanks to Charles)

And when Zogette follows Charles to Scary School, the Monster King and Captain Pigbeard raise their armies and chase after her. But the monsters have no idea who—or what—they’re dealing with.

In this clever, funny sequel to the frighteningly hilarious Scary School, Charles, Penny Possum, Dr. Dragonbreath, and all the students and teachers prove that scary monsters are no match for Scary School!

My Review: In this funny sequel Derek the Ghost returns with new characters, adventure, actions, humor and mystery that will keep you laughing.

Charles Nukid is back with some old favorites and new characters to name a few, Tanya Tarantula and Bryce McCallister are some of the new students, Ms Hydra a giant lizard with nine fearsome head is a hall monitor, new teacher Mr. Grump the Elephant man who was surprised to see that he has hands and King Khufu the mummy.

In the sequel, Principal Headcrusher announce to the students about the grand prize for winning the Ghoul Games last spring, was a trip to meet the Monster King Zog in Albany a town in upstate New York.

Read all about the Monster Princess Zogette falling for Charles Nukid and following him back to Scary School. Her father King Zog and her fiancé Captain Pigbeard are not happy and wage war on Scary School.

I am a fan of Derek the Ghost and can’t wait for the next installment. And let’s not forget the great artwork of Scott M. Fischer that captured the likeness of each character. I highly recommend this book for every young kid not afraid of monsters and adults…lol! A fun book your child will read over and over again. Get your copy from Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

  1. Scary School and Monsters On The March are on my Christmas list for my 9 year old granddaughter who is not afraid of monsters. For whatever reason. She’s braver then I was at her age. 🙂 Love the illustrations in these books. Count me in.

  2. Scary school sounds cute. I like the idea of monsters that are kid-friendly. lol. Scary but not too scary so that kids don’t have to feel afraid of them. Especially on Halloween. My daughter is afraid to go in Party City during Halloween season.

  3. Scary School sounds like great entertainment for those just a bit too young for the Harry Potter novels. The grandkids love stories about unscary monsters, that in a way help them face those childhood fears, such as what is under the bed or in the closet.
