Book Review
Title: An Awfully Beastly Business: Sea Monsters and Other Delicacies
Author: The Beastly Boys
Genre: MG/Paranormal/Adventure
Rating: *****
Review: After the ending of Werewolf versus Dragon I couldn’t wait to jump into this book especially since we know from the blurb that Marackai is making another appearance but instead of planning a Ring of Horrors, this time he is aiming for a beast feast. We see Marackai and his henchmen, preparing to capture a sea monster to eat but somehow it ends

The writing is even better than the first one and i love how they make the creatures feel real. Just slightly disappointed that it's the same plot as the last one.
But i have hope that it won't be too similar with future book and the character development seems to be happening gradually.
Now you might say, why do i expect so much when it's a childrens books? Well i personally believe that just because it's for children, doesn't excuse poor writing.
This does remind me a lot about a series of unfort

Second part of this series about beasts and variations of many fantasy themes, is somewhat interesting if something that you have read before, in probably a way that was better, not terrible, but pretty average all the same.

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

The evil Baron Marackai returns! This time he is hunting for rare sea monsters that he can turn into delicious meals for his conniving and evil associates. Ulf, Dr. Fielding, Tiana the fairy and Orson the giant of the RSPCB (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Beasts) have their hands full trying to help an injured sea monster that narrowly escaped Marackai's clutches. As with the last book, there is an instructional and scientific element to this book. As Dr. Fielding is operating on ...more

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.

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.

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.

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.

Amusing, whimsical and well-written middle grade fantasy. Great for killing a few hours. [Listened to the audiobook.]
It was alright sorta boring
Het was vrij voorspelbaar.

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.

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