by McNally Robinson - Thursday, Jul 20, 2017 at 6:31pm

Eleven year old Thomas Fallgrout goes to Pennybaker School when he discovers he can do magic. In the school there is a statue of the head of the late great Helen Heirmauser. The statue is very important to the school but Thomas doesn’t know that so he calls it creepy and bad things. So when the statue goes missing everybody thinks its him who stole it. Did Thomas steal the statue? And if he didn’t who did? Find in Pennybaker School is Headed for Disaster!

In this book I liked how Thomas never gave up on trying to find out who stole the statue even when everybody thought it was him. Even his own parents! It was really hard to predict who stole the statue. I was very surprised at the end. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.

Although he kept running into problems, he wouldn't give up or stop believing in himself. One of his friends suggested possible investors, Mr. and Mrs. Yingerlinger, who had an insanely large sum of money. Can Jimmy and his friends convince Mr. and Mrs. Yingerlinger to invest in the book company or does his dream stay a dream?

Monsters Unleahed is about this kid named Freddie who draws pictures of monsters that are based on bullies in his class, but the pictures come to life. Him and his friend get help from the bullies that the drawings are based on. They stop the monsters and all become friends.

I read the book Monsters Unleashed by John Kloepfer and I give it 10/10. I liked this book because it was very exciting and John Kloepfer made it very clear how the main character felt about the situations he was going through. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes exciting adventures.
