Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers...and happy Valentine's Day!
Today, we're hosting a spot along the Rachel's Random Resources tour for a very Fun, very CREATIVE, very...UNUSUAL book that is bound to have you in equal parts stitches and dismay as our young lead finds himself in some very sketchy situations, all thanks to a rather unique family history. But I digress, let's get to the introductions and then we'll duck between the pages. Ladies and gents, kiddos and fur bearing critters alike, join me as we welcome today's blog tour guest and ebook of choice...
Monster Max and the Bobble Hat of Forgetting
Monster Max series, Book 1
About the book...
Max is an unusual 9-year-old. He can turn himself into a huge, bin- eating monster by BURPING. Being a monster is brilliant, unless he sneezes (which turns him back) and he finds himself far from home in just his pants.
Max decides to be more responsible and ‘protect and do good stuff’, starting with catching a local vandal. But his nemesis, Peregrine, is convinced Max is the vandal, and invents his POOP (Portable Operating Omni Prison) machine to trap him. If Peregrine can prove the truth, Max and his mother could be put in a zoo … or worse. Max will have to use his wits as well as his strength to catch the real culprit, before Peregrine can catch him…
This was an adventure I embarked off completely off my reading schedule. I was done with the book I was reading, adrift without my calendar, and BOOM...the cover called to me in my reading app and the rest is history!
I gotta say, Max was a hoot and a half! The ability he has is unique enough as it is, but his attempts at trying to do good and it constantly being thwarted by seemingly half-wit nincompoops is ridiculous! I say half-wit because Peregrine is actually on to something with his out-there-sounding contraptions. I mean the POOP (see book description for explanation...I'm not actually making a potty joke) was some serious...STUFF...and almost caused the end of Max's exploits when he...well, when everything hit the fan! *ahem* Anyway...suffice it to say that not every person is quite as adept at catching our young monster come young man in the act, and sometimes he DOES actually get the drop on others, but while his stealth needs work, his heart is in the right place. I mean, he could just go on a rampage, but he doesn't...although there is a pesky little “visitor” from lands only his family knows of that seems to be dead set on causing as much ruckus as possible, but that a story for you to explore once you take the jump between the pages to discover all the wonder, all the magic, all the wild weirdness that you didn't know you were missing out on!
Oh, and one final thing...the BOBBLE HAT mentioned in the title is ACTUALLY a thing! And to think all this time it was...I mean, umm....where is that thing? *whistles*
