Read in July, 2010

Will Henry kept a meticulous diary of his days as a young assistant to Dr. Warthrop, a monstrumologist -- someone who studies the existence and anatomy of a historical (mythological?) monster. The story is compelling and sometimes very graphic. The first chapter begins with a grave robber who delivers a young girl's body that has been enveloped and devoured by one of the monsters.

As the story progresses through the years, we (and the doctor) discover that not only do the monsters exist, but they have apparently migrated to the US. It's a suspenseful story the teens and especially boys will love. I read this in its entirety on a 4 hour flight. It was great!
