Horn Book Review

Alexander has a new school and town to adjust to--does he really need a mysterious notebook, weird monsters, and vaguely threatening adventures to contend with as well? Sure, and Cummings integrates anxiety and excitement effectively as Alexander faces three worthy foes in these beginning chapter books. Well-developed characters and sillier-than-scary illustrations will keep kids reading. [Review covers these Notebook of Doom titles: Attack of the Shadow Smashers, Day of the Night Crawlers, and Rise of the Balloon Goons.] (c) Copyright 2014.
