Hello and welcome to my blog today where I will be sharing my review of the lovely children's book Monster Max: This time it's Sirius by Robin Bennett.
Thanks to Rachels Random Resources for providing me with an ARC ebook to read and review. This has in no way impacted my review, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Max can turn into a huge monster just by BURPING, and back again when he SNEEZES. Now Max and his best friend Peregrine realise that a dangerous pack of werewolves from Max’s home country of Krit are closing in on him and his family. But Max hasn’t told anyone about Sirius the tiny werewolf cub he found, smuggled home, and decided to keep...
Werewolf cubs are not just for Halloween
This was a really fun and adventurous book for children. I could tell by reading that this was a part of a series of books, I haven't read any of the others in the series but this didn't detract from my enjoyment at all. I think these are the kind of books that children could dip into and read some or all of.
The story follows Max who can turn himself into a monster when he burps which will appeal to many children!! He is a funny character who cleverly gets himself out of scrapes and I imagine would successfully be able to deal with any adventure that was thrown at him! His friend Peregrine is an unlikely hero but the friendship works. I enjoyed the tension provided by the wolfpack hunting the family and the excitement as the adventure hit its peak. I think this is a great set of books for those children who are just starting to read chapter books themselves. 6 and up would enjoy reading them and I know they will be right up my sons street. I am off to hunt for some more books for him to read....

When Robin grew up he thought he wanted to be a cavalry officer until everyone else realised that putting him in charge of a tank was a very bad idea. He then became an assistant gravedigger in London. After that he had a career frantically starting businesses (everything from dog-sitting to cigars, tuition to translation)... until finally settling down to write improbable stories to keep his children from killing each other on long car journeys.
Robin plays most sports. Poorly.
