I am currently reading Killer Pizza by Greg Taylor.I'm at the part were a guy from the Echo 8-Plex movie theater is about to leave but a monster stings him and makes him faint. I think the author dose a good job of putting a lot of details like the place was at a dead end and it hodgepodge of business. I think me and Toby have things in common like we both like comics and we both see things like shadows and creatures.Each time I open up this book and imagine the Killer Pizza restaurant I...more
The main character's voice was great. Toby is an average kid with a passion for cooking nobody knows about. I could relate with him in many ways. His growth from an insecure kid to a bold, courageous monster fighter is gradual and realistic. I found myself cheering for him and celebrating his success.
The Guttata is a unique kind of monster I didn't know about. So refreshing! Makes a change from werewolves and vampires. I did a quick Google search, thinking it may be a mythical cre...more
This is a great ho...more

I read the entire book in one sitting while waiting at the doctor's office.
It's cute. It's not in any way deep. It's actually a pretty good beach read. The librarian marked it with a reading level of 4.4 (4th grade, 4th...more
But wait, Killer Pizza isn’t just any pizza shop. Sure it puts out tasty, cheesy pies, but Killer Pizza is much more. Killer Pizza is the front for a top-secret monster fighting organization that recruits and trains top notch monster hunters.
As a new recruit, Toby feels anything but top notch, but the more he learns and trains, the more he understands tha...more
Okay so I didn't know this book existed until I about 2 weeks ago. I was in class and was supposed to be reading but I left my novel at home and didn't really want to skim threw any of the poor selection of books we have in my classroom at the back. Since my friend had two books with him. Killer Pizza being one of them and The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan the other. He wanted to read The Red Pyramid and I'd already read it anyways (really good book by the way)so I decided to read Killer Pizza no...more
This book was a blast with just the right amount of tension and fun and intellectual type stuff and I can safely recommend this book to the young people I volunteer with as there is no objectionable material in the book - unless you count murderous monsters...

Toby Magill doesn't know it yet, but his first part-time job at a local Pizza joint will not feature the opportunity to hone his "chef" skills by whipping up ingenious new pizza sauces and tasty appetizers, but instead the opportunity risk his life. You see, Killer Pizza is a front organization for a group of men-in-black types (minus the suits) who spend their nights slaying monsters that live among us.
