Chronicles of the Monster Detective Agency
Will Allen and the Great Monster Detective
The inaugural title in the Chronicles of the Monster Detective Agency series, Will Allen and the Great Monster Detective (ISBN: 978-0-9789512-0-7, $5.95), is the adventure of a clever but timid boy whose fears have literally come to life, and how, with some very special help, he learns to conquer them. Targeted at readers who already enjoy Bailey School Kids, The Magic Tree House, and Goosebumps books, this humorous mix of Ghostbusters and Monsters Inc. is more than just a spooky, yet whimsical fantasy. It also adds a new tool for helping children overcome anxieties by metaphorically providing young readers with a model for confronting their own fears. But just because it has a message, that doesn’t mean it’s not loads of fun to read. In its review, Bookviews.com called the book, “Wildly entertaining…Funny from first page to last!”
