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

Fun Children’s adventure – Monster Max and the Marmalade Ghost by Robin Bennett

Max and Peregrine are volunteering at an old people’s home, when strange things start to happen: one resident is walking on the ceiling; one is riding their wheelchair through walls; and Reggie says his marmalade is haunted (although no one listens). Can Max and his friends work out what’s happening to protect his family and the local community? Things aren’t looking good – the Marmalade Ghost is turning into a gloopy Godzilla, Max falls out with his (joint) best friend, and then, just when it can’t get any worse, someone kidnaps Max’s cat, Frankenstein… will they meet a sticky end?

Time to ‘Protect and Do Good Stuff!’

My Review:

This is the next adventure for Max and his best friends
Written for children, where the joking never ends!
However, there's also danger and peril for the three
As they work to get the old people's home ghost free.

There's plenty of toilet humour to put a smile on your face
And excitement too, as Max ends up in disgrace!
As Max falls out with his friend and his cat gets kidnapped, too,
What's a boy who can turn into a monster got to do?

Even though the timing is rough,
It is time to ‘Protect and Do Good Stuff!’
Get ready for gadgets with the weirdest of names
And daring exploits, too, no time for games!

This middle grade reader is lots of fun
With humour, excitement and getting things done.
I highly recommend this to children, parents and teachers, too,
After reading my complementary copy and writing this, my honest review!


Author Bio –

When Robin grew up he thought he wanted to be a cavalry officer until everyone else realised that putting him in charge of a tank was a very bad idea. He then became an assistant gravedigger in London. After that he had a career frantically starting business- es (everything from dog-sitting to cigars, tuition to translation)… until finally settling down to write improbable stories to keep his children from killing each other on long car journeys.
