Out of all the Peter and the Monsters books, this one is where it begins to get very, very dark. Like Peter and the Grownups, it's not entirely told from Peter's POV, which does offer it some more emotional impact. It also is one of the few of the books with what feels to me to be a gray morality, rather than it to be a straight black and white one - which is done excellently. This is also where I'd have to say, though the protagonist is a ten year old boy, readers of all ages - especially adult readers who want something that reminds them of childhood favorites (Scooby Doo, Goosebumps, Eerie Indiana) without feeling like something is dumbing them down, go for all 21 of Peter and the Monsters books. You won't be dissapointed.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This was a little different from the rest of the series. Three-fourths of the story is from a new point of view and it is not Peter. It starts off with Peter and then transitions to a new character and then transitions back. But it was still extremely well-written and I enjoyed the new point of view. I cannot wait for the next one of the series. This is the best series I am reading right now. If you like Goosebumps, check this one.
