Scare Scape

About the Book
Three wishes go awry in a middle-grade debut as comical as it is spooky.

Toxic Vapor Worms. Shark Hounds. King-Crab Spiders. Two-Headed Mutant Rodents.

These are just a few of the beasts featured in the pages of Scare Scape, the creepiest comic book around. They are vicious. They are terrifying. They are, luckily, totally made up.

Morton Clay is a huge fan of Scare Scape, so he isn't easily frightened. He's not afraid of the dark, or grossed-out by bugs and slugs. But when Morton and his siblings, James and Melissa, find an old stone statue buried in their yard, they discover that there is good reason to be afraid. . . .

Spooky, funny, and fresh, Sam Fisher's middle-grade debut explores the bonds and rivalries that are unique to siblings . . . even as it revels in monstrous mayhem!

My Take on the Book
For anyone that loves stories that just draw you in from the beginning, you will love this book. Not only do you get a book that allows your imagination to soar, but you get to dream about the world of the comic book that comes to life in this story. I ended up reading this with my eldest and at he end she stated that this was "Awesome". High praise for a nine year old!

One of the things that I loved about the book was not only the characters and the plot, but I loved the "Monster Deck" section of the book where you get to meet some of the monsters from Scare Scape. These monsters are well drawn out and you can tell that you would not particularly want to meet up with these creatures outside the pages of a book!

All-in-all, this book was a fun read that all will enjoy - so get ready to read and imagine!
