Myles and the Monster Outside
by Philippa Dowding
$9.99, 136 pp, ages 9 – 12
I really liked this book because it is full of mystery, action, adventure and scary parts. I am really into those things! I think it would be really fun to go on a car ride like Myles went on. My favourite character is Myles’ mom because she is a good mom and takes care of her children. I think she had a long trip with just her and three kids in a car. One of my favourite parts in the story was when Myles saves his brother and sister from the monster and he gets to have an “I TOLD YOU SO” moment. I like to have those times too! I also like how the book starts because it really catches the reader’s interest right away. I would recommend this book for anyone who likes ghost stories and mysteries.
