Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Gronk – a Monster’s Story by Katie Cook

Title: Gronk – a monster’s storyGronk 1

Author and Illustrator: Katie Cook

Publisher: Picture Window Books – Capstone Young Readers

Published: March 3rd, 2015

Rating: 4/5

The players in this very cute comic book adventure are the adorable monster Gronk, Dale Wilco, Harli, Kitty and Kitteh. Gronk is fed up of the other monsters picking on her so she goes out of their homeland and, en route, finds a lovely kitten . . . . and then her human, Dale, who invites Gronk to live with them and so their adventures start!

The book is beautifully illustrated, the characters appealing and the adventures as Dale tries to teach Gronk about the human world are funny and appealing. For much of this comic book, my usual gripe about the font used doesn’t apply – it is written in ‘camel’ text rather than all block capitals. However, I’m not sure why most words containing the letter ‘r’ have it written as R, regardless of its position in the word!

Apparently there are additional adventures of Gronk every Friday published at www.gronkcomic.com !

Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This book is available from a variety of sources including
