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!

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3–6—This second book in the series finds the students-some human, some not-on a field trip to Albania to meet the Monster King. In the process, Charles Nukid (the only one to actually wear the school uniform) becomes engaged to marry a monster princess, much to his annoyance. Disaster seems inevitable as the wedding approaches and an army of monsters plans to attack Scary School, but a few last-minute twists tie everything up neatly. Throughout the book, the promise of gore meets very little follow through, and the odd collection of teachers and students, while entertaining, is confusing. Broadly humorous, black-and-white exaggerated cartoons appear throughout. The story takes "off the wall" to a new level, to the point that it becomes tough to follow. Purchase only where Scary School (HarperCollins, 2011) is popular.—Amanda Struckmeyer, Middleton Public Library, Madison, WI
