What an intriguing story SEA MONSTERS AND OTHER DELICACIES turned out to be. This is the second story in the AN AWFULLY BEASTLY BUSINESS series.

The story starts out with Baron Marackai and his minions dropping grenades over the side of their boat. They are attempting to rouse sea monsters from the deep. Baron Marackai has evil plans to get as many sea monsters as he can and then eat them: for they are delicious. His minions fear that the RSPCB (the Royal So
NL: Zeemonsters en andere lekkernijen. Dit is een boek uit de serie Monsterlijk beestachtige zaken.
Dit boek bevat alle elementen van een aanrader voor jongens: hoofdpersoon is een stoere jongen (af en toe zelfs een weerwolf), enge beesten, een slechterik, een flinke dosis spanning en humor.
Helaas is het boek niet geschikt voor bangerikken.
Geschikt voor kinderen vanaf ca. 8 jaar.

I probably should have started with the first one in this series. I think I missed a little bit of back story there, but it can be read by itself. Very cute and innovative. The main villain totally reminded me of Count Olaf from Series of Unfortunate Events. Will definitely recommend to my students and try to pick up the other books in the series.

After reading the first book in the series I knew what to expect...
More of the same, and perhaps not the best book for an adult reader, but not as awful as I remember the first book.

As an adult reading this I kind of had to force myself to keep going.

However, had I read this when I was younger it would have kept me turning the pages well after bed time.

There is mystery and danger and good friendships. It keeps wanting to keep reading the stories to see what twisted plot our hero will thwart next.

Rhys really likes Ulf the werewolf at the RSPCB. He finished book two - after reading himself to sleep - and insisted that I read it immediately. The second book involves the same evil villian in a new Scooby Dooish disguise. Ulf saves the day but only after being tied up and placed in an oven. Druce the gargoyle is also featured again.
Amusing, whimsical and well-written young adult fantasy. Great for killing a few hours. [Listened to the audiobook.]

I think it was totally over the top and awesome. One of the best books I've ever read.

Good, silly fun. (That's definitely all, but that can be plenty.)
Het was vrij voorspelbaar.
