Staff Reviews


A Monster Calls is a book about nightmares, monsters and death; a darkly beautiful and moving story about a 13-year-old boy who must cope with the fact that his mother has terminal cancer. When a monster begins to show up at his window on a regular basis, exactly at 12:07am, Conor is surprisingly unafraid. Sinister, shadowy illustrations reinforce the atmosphere of despair. Despite its subject, or perhaps because of it, this is a book to treasure.
