First Monster review: Julia Eccleshare says “fast-paced, compulsive read”

Leave a comment

YAY!! The first review for Monster Matsuri is in, and it’s from none other than Julia Eccleshare, a guru of children’s literature and children’s editor at the UK’s Guardian newspaper. YAY!!

Julia says:

As with the author’s two earlier Takeshita Demons titles this is a fast-paced, compulsive read that appeals to a wide audience; children as young as 8 or 9 through to adults.

Each of the titles is a standalone read but the characters in the three are consistent.

This time Miku and her friends must solve the trail of clues to finally banish evil from their world.

Manga style illustrations throughout complement the story brilliantly.”

All I can say is HOORAY! 🙂 I know we shouldn’t put too much faith in reviews…different people have different tastes and read different things and etc.

But I can’t help it. Because some reviews make me want to dance hippy-happy hornpipes up and down the beach 🙂

Thank you Julia! Thank you everyone for reading!
