About the Book and Author
Monster Doughnuts is the first title is a deliciously funny series from writer Gianna Pollero, illustrated by the award-winning artist Sarah Horne and published by Piccadilly Press.
Ten-year-old Grace likes doughnuts and cakes as much as the next kid – but they are also her secret weapon. Grace is a monster hunter who owns a bakery – and everyone knows how much monsters LOVE any kind of sweet treat!
Just don’t tell them about the secret exploding baking powder inside the doughnuts and the cookies …
I thought that the monster glossary at the end, referring to the creatures in the novel, was both funny and helpful
Monster Doughnuts is an amusing page-turner that I found enjoyable and easy to read. The detailed illustrations, which are peppered throughout, helped me imagine further what the settings and the characters resemble.
The “chewed” cover page looks like it was eaten by a monster making the reader feel part of the story.
I thought that the monster glossary at the end, referring to the creatures in the novel, was both funny and helpful with wacky names such as “Poo Shuffler” and “Parent Punisher”!
The storyline was exciting and easy to understand which always made me want to read on to find out what would happen next – I finished the book in only a few sittings.
The end suggests there might be a follow up… I will keep an eye out for this one!
