Desmond Pucket and the Mountain Full of Monsters by by Mark Tatulli

18168482Desmond Pucket is at it again and this time he has a dream to fulfill. Desmond Pucket and the Mountain Full of Monsters begins shortly after the end of the first book. I was a bit hesitant to begin reading this because the first one was so well done, I was worried that the second book wouldn’t live up to it. But Desmond continues to come up with ingenious monsters and innovative ways to use them to scare people. And I loved every minute of it.

Desmond is finally going on the sixth-grade field trip to Crab Shell Pier. His dream is to ride the Mountain Full of Monsters ride with Tina Schimsky, the love of his life and “dream girl extraordinaire”. Of course, nothing goes smoothly and chaos ensues. I smiled so much while reading this book that my cheeks hurt. I love the combination of comic book style illustrations (pencil sketches as though Desmond is drawing them) and grade-level text. I’ve said it before and I will say it again, while the book is geared toward middle grade readers, it is so well written that anyone would enjoy it.
