Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathie M. Josephs
Graphic novels are fabulous because both reluctant and advanced readers can enjoy them. The story begins with the Mighty Monsters heading out to see how the Scare Fair is going. This is a yearly event that they go to each year. When they get there, Igor goes for cotton candy and jumps in the bin to get more. Of course he gets stuck and his friends jump in to help him. When they finally get him out they are all sticky. They get into a conversation about how Igor has bad luck when Milton says there is no such thing as bad luck. The group finds out that he says that because he has a rare four leaf clover that he carries with him all the time and a lucky rabbit's foot. Of course something happens to the rabbit's foot and four leaf clover and Milton thinks he is jinxed. Each page just gets better and better. At the end of the book, the author includes a Glossary, a page of both writing prompts and discussion questions, and a mini biography about the author. There is also a page that gives facts of what certain bad luck and good luck items are. For example, "Since the middle ages, it's been considered bad luck if a black cat crosses your path" and "A lucky horseshoe must be lost by a horse and found by you, with the open end facing your way. You must hang it over the door with the open end up so the good fortune does not spill out." Both boys and girls will enjoy this book. It is perfect for home and school libraries. Reviewer: Kathie M.
