What a brilliant, funny children’s story this turned out to be! When Trixie Grimble’s school closes, her Mum and Stepdad decide to enrol her at Monroe’s School for the Different (Monstacademy), a decidedly different boarding school, so her Mum has more time to train her kittens to become a cat circus! Now, not only is the school a boarding school but Trixie is the first ordinary, human pupil ever to attend – her peers and teachers there include vampires, werewolves, banshees, ghosts and goblins! ...more

I read this book twice. The first time I read this on my own and found it a delightful read. It was entertaining and filled with a fun adventure.

The Halloween Parade is about a girl called Trixie Grimble who is sent to a boarding school even though she doesn’t want to go. The boarding school is not your average boarding school, this one is full of Vampires, Ghosts and Werewolves and the only normal thing about the school is Trixie.

I really liked how the books shows that we can all be different

I read this to my 3 year old, 1 chapter a night before bed and she adored it! She liked the fact that a ‘normal’ girl was going to school with monsters, she liked that not all monsters are scary and that she made friends with a vampire (she tells me that’s very cool) and werepoodle.

From a parents point of view I liked that the book showed that we can all be different but all feel the same when we are left out, made fun of or are bullied. I pointed this out to my toddler, explained that we are

The Halloween Parade (Monstacademy Book 1) by Matt Beighton, is a delightful story for youngsters (and oldsters) about a young girl's plight, Trixie Grimble, who is sent to a boarding school against her will. Not exactly a normal school either - Monroe's School for the Different (Monstacademey). The school is full of Vampires, Werewolves, Ghosts, Banshees etc.. and as the story goes, it turns out Trixie is the first ordinary person to attend the school. At first she is scared and nervous but ...more

An excellent book for children aged 6-12 to read themselves, or have read to them

I read this book to my six year old son and he was enamoured with it right from the very first page. I sometimes struggle to get him to engage with a story, especially a longer book like this, but he was absolutely gripped and begged me to read more every night! I also enjoyed reading it and there were many parts where we laughed together about some of the hilarious scenes in the book!
As a teacher, I could also see

This was a really fun read and I can imagine it being a story that is loved and read over and over - it certainly has some brilliant quirky characters!

The chapter length is good and I liked that the paragraphs were kept fairly short to keep attention. The story is easy to follow and the main characters are great - well described and likeable. The images are lovey!

Four stars from me for this one - a well written story - looking forward to reading the second

Audiobook review: The Halloween Parade is a good clean youth short story involving a mystery and intriguing characters. The narrator did a great job! I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
