Book Review: How To Make Friends and Monsters
Howard Boward is the narrator of How To Make Friends and Monsters. His mom, perhaps with the best intentions, gives him a copy of How to Make Friends; this gift isn't exactly appreciated. He'd hoped his lack of friends had gone unnoticed. He starts reading the book, however, but with a bit of a twist. He takes the "making" of friends literally. How to MAKE a friend if you're a genius-science kid. (Not quite following in the steps of Victor Frankenstein...but close.)
The book is odd, quirky, not quite believable, but a good deal of fun. Especially if you like Frankenstein (the book) OR Encino Man (the movie).
Other than the fact that it is published by a Christian publisher, I haven't found any real reason why this middle grade book is specifically "Christian". I think it would work for a wider audience.
