Dear Librarians,

Growing up I loved stories about monsters, whether they came from beyond the grave or outer space I didn't care. Monsters were cool... and the more old school, the better... Frankenstein, the Invisible Man, the Blob. Sweet.

Written for readers 9-13, MONSTER SQUAD: THE IRON GOLEM is book one in a series that introduces a new generation to these awesome characters. The story is a fast-paced, fun, modern-day mash-up of gothic novels and Hollywood cinema rich with literary, sci-fi and pop culture throw-backs.

Kirkus summed it up nicely:

"Well-written and briskly paced; the author is clearly having fun, and the story reflects it"
