Overview

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!

    LOL Funny! Scary School 2 Monsters on the March by Derek the Gh

    LOL Funny!

    Scary School 2 Monsters on the March by Derek the Ghost and illustrated by Scott M. Fischer is the second in a series of hilarious books about a variety of students, some human but most not, who attend Scary School for a variety of reasons.  At the end of the first book, the students of Scary School won the Ghoul Competitions and their prize was a trip to meet King Zog, the Monster King in Albania. Now, the students were getting ready for their trip with much anticipation. The new school year also brought an influx of new students; each with their own zany story about their background and life. Meeting the Monster King brings many new problems for the kids of Scary School, starting with the King’s daughter running away to Scary School.
     
    This book is just as crazy and hilarious as the first.  All the students at Scary School are unique in their own way and each one teaches a life lesson as we learn more about them.  The stories are funny and the characters are zany and this is a great way to teach children the importance of accepting everyone for what they are!




    My son has ADHD and HATES reading and we have a hard time finding a book that will grab his attention and hold onto it through the entire book. He LOVES The Scary School books and he looks forward to reading them.  He remember everything that happens throughout the book which he has hard time doing with other books, even with us stopping to giggle and laugh throughout the whole book.  I'm so happy to have discovered these books.
     
    Definitely a 5 star book for fun-loving readers of all ages.

    This is one of my favorite middle-grade fantasy series. Book one

    This is one of my favorite middle-grade fantasy series. Book one was about introducing us to the characters and the school. In a way, this book is much like the first. We are introduced to more characters and their stories, but this book follows a more stream-lined plot. There is a set "bad guy" with the monsters determined to take down Scary School, and the kids determined to protect it and the epic "romance" between Princess Zogette and Charles Nukid.

    Boys will love this series for the action, and girls will love the epic romance part (poor Charles). Plus, there are hints that there might be something between Charles and Penny. What really makes the story, however, is how the students get themselves out of various dangerous situations and grow all the more closer for it. There is so much potential for drama at a scary school, especially when various characters misinterpret different situations.

    In this book, Derek introduces us to new monsters, some too scary in their adult forms to be illustrated in the text, and old favorites return. Monster Math takes on new significance, and we learn how monster kingdoms can be taken over. The Scary School books are books that adults and children alike will enjoy. I can easily imagine a family reading the books together. As always, gorgeous illustrations accompany the text. I recommend buying a hardcopy, as it makes it all the better to appreciate the beauty of the illustrations in the context of the story.
