This is a spooky tale for kids and teens written by author Bruce Coville. For a good Halloween read, check it out!

Author: Brice Coville

You'd think from the title, The Monsters of Morley Manor, that this book is a terrifying tale of an old, spooky house, haunted by vampires, goblins, and ghouls. But then, you'd be wrong.


Friendly Creatures

The Monsters of Morley Manor is the perfect example of why you shouldn't judge a book by its cover. Sure, there are monsters in this book, but these monsters aren't out to scare people. They've actually needed help for over 50 years, but no one has come - until now.


A Magical Box

Morley Manor is a hulking, spooky place that had been inhabited by Old Man Morley until his recent death. The day before it's to be demolished, there is a sale to get rid of its contents. Anthony and his sister, Sarah, trudge over one rainy Sunday afternoon, ready to sort through all the junk being sold off. The last thing in the world they expect to take home is a box of tiny monster figurines that come to life.


The Bottom Line

The Monsters of Morley Manor doesn't let you down. It's descriptive, interesting, and exciting all the way through. You never know what's going to happen next, but you're always eager to find out. It's the perfect book to get you in the Halloween spirit, and it's bound to offer a chuckle or two along the way.
