I had enjoyed the first Monstertown Mystery book Curse of the Were-Hyena it was fun and had an interesting idea, so I was looking forward to the next adventure of Benny and Carlos. This does not disappoint it still has the charm that the first book had and kept it fresh and fun. It was a real nostalgic trip as it reminded me of Goosebumps and the Bailey School Kids, but this had an originality to it. The characters are really well done and I enjoyed going on their adventures. I hope there’s more to this series and the author as I’m hooked.
5 out of 5 stars
How well do you know the lunch servers at your school? Sure, they seem like nice people, but what if secretly they are something much, much weirder?
Best friends Carlos and Benny, who just saved their teacher from becoming a were-hyena, have been called upon to investigate the strange goings-on in the cafeteria. Why are the lunch ladies suddenly so grumpy? Why are the girls’ meals different from the boys’? And what was that thing seen scuttling around the kitchen wearing an apron?
It’s going to require a lot of courage–and more than an industrial size can of Raid–for the boys to avoid extermination in this buggy adventure.
