Overview

Another rare and unusual creature has been delivered to the macabre estate at 1313 Road to Nowhere in Foggy Point, Maine. This is a place where the magical is real and the bizarre is normal. Welcome to the Monsterjunkie Manor.

Ah, but all is not well in the quirky, gothic Monsterjunkie world. Outside forces are scheming to rid them from the area while the teens and their friends cope with harassment for being different. Of course, it does not help that the name itself brings suspicion and rumors about what goes on at this mysterious mansion.

Will their private world be exposed? Can the Monsterjunkies continue to carry on their peaceful ancestral legacy in the world of cyptozoology and helping endangered species while coping with these dark distractions?

Benjamin Franklin Awards™ - 12 - Teen: Fiction (13-18)

Great Debut Real Fantasy Novel for Erik Daniel Shein
Pretty "current" feel for cover design - Twilight readers would pick this book up and read the summary. Relatable to this age group. easy to read. Great presentation!

Kirkus review: Warm, smart and educational.

From Shein comes the YA tale of a family for whom cryptozoology is a way of life. Ninth-grader Cromwell "Crow" Monsterjunkie lives with his family near Foggy Point, Maine. His parents, Talon and Pandora, use their mansion as a sanctuary for rare and endangered creatures. In dealing with the bullies, Herpetologist Shein wraps a classic tale of conformity in some gorgeously gothic paper. Warm, smart and educational.

Erik Daniel Shein has created a fascinating world of somewhat real creatures, cared for by an eccentric but close and loving macabe family on their home sanctuary estate.

Very highly recommended for pre- to early teen readers with a strong message of social acceptance and Anti bullying, The Monsterjunkies Sanctuary makes excellent summer reading.
