Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Keri Collins Lewis
With the discovery of a notebook loaded with monster drawings and facts, Alexander sees danger around every corner, even in harmless worms. He is eager to learn more about the mysterious notebook, who created it, and what the letters S.S.M.P emblazoned on the cover mean. Mr. Hoarsely, the one person at school Alexander thought might be able to help, seems more nervous than usual, and inexplicably disappears after a strange phone call. Stranger still, their aggressive substitute gym class teacher is completely covered by protective fencing gear to conceal her identity and wields a bizarre, serrated sword. The mystery deepens when, en route home, Alexander, Rip, and their new friend, Nikki, discover the worms have joined forces to spell out a warning: Beware! The fish are coming! The "Notebook of Doom" series' second installment puts Alexander's sleuthing skills to the test as he gathers clues and discovers the identity of the latest monsters to invade the town of Stermont. With quick thinking and teamwork, he and his friends manage to avoid a gruesome end, save Mr. Hoarsely, and become official members of the Super Secret Monster Patrol. This fast-paced early chapter book is loaded with the kind of slapstick humor and exaggerated illustrations often found in TV cartoons. The combination of action, friendship, and fun will resonate with all emerging readers, but the gross factor will appeal particularly to boys, and especially reluctant readers.

    I love it when an early chapter book can make both my five year

    I love it when an early chapter book can make both my five year old and myself smile. In this second installment of the Notebook of Doom, Alexander and Rip team up with their classmate Nikki to take down the latest invading monster. This book is a little shorter than the first one, but it still has all of the fun.

    My daughter loves this series. She keeps asking when we can read the next book. This series is perfect for kids her age (five) and a little older. The story and text are simple enough that it's easy to understand, yet the plot is exciting and there is a lot going on. The black and white illustrations on every page help kids visualize what's happening while keeping their interest.

    This is a really great series for children gaining confidence in their reading and ready to try something longer than the beginning reading books.

    The one complaint I have is that the ending wrapped up too quickly and simply. It didn't really require any skill or action on the part of the protagonist, but rather resolved out of mostly dumb luck. I would have liked to see Alexander and his friends take some sort of decisive action.
