    My name is Spike, and my friends and I want to become monster hunters Tommy always wants to use his muscles, Karim can get his hands on magical weapons, and we ve just captured a basilisk in our school We ve decided to sign up with AppVenture, so we can get paid while catching monsters We ll stick with level one and twos, maybe a level three if it comes to that, so we can learn and get better before tackling thedangerous monsters Things have been going pretty well with our team, but we My name is Spike, and my friends and I want to become monster hunters Tommy always wants to use his muscles, Karim can get his hands on magical weapons, and we ve just captured a basilisk in our school We ve decided to sign up with AppVenture, so we can get paid while catching monsters We ll stick with level one and twos, maybe a level three if it comes to that, so we can learn and get better before tackling thedangerous monsters Things have been going pretty well with our team, but we just saw something disturbing on Mad MacKenzie s podcast She caught a gremlin with the indentation of a ring on its head an imprint of my ring How did a gremlin we captured manage to get captured again by Mad MacKenzie Something fishy is going on at AppVenture This book will probably appeal to upper elementary students Monster hunting is common in the plot, and Karim s crippled dad has retired from the business Spike and her friends are ordinary kids, but there s nothing extraordinary about them They behave the way you d expect amateurs to behave, including making amateur mistakes Karim s terrified to let his dad know what he s doing, and Tommy looks forward to any chance to show off his muscles The second half of the book is much better than the first, as the author develops larger conflicts Obviously, the kids are destined to facedeadly monsters to put themselves in perilous situations AppVenture has a secret conspiracy going on, and the kids are determined to stop it A David and Goliath scenario is created Spike s parents are divorced, so this adds an important twist to the plot She s very angry with her father and then finds out he s working for AppVenture Luis wants to get back in Spike s life, but she s not having any of it This bitterness is a common emotion in cases of divorce I was ready to dismiss this book as a cute story for young readers, but it slowly grew on me Overall, I liked the plot and am curious about the sequel Give it a shot if you enjoy monster hunting

    Aliens are loose in the city and only the Monster Club can stop them Spike, Tommy, and Karim are seventh graders on a mission They want to be adventurers Tommy is the biggest of the group and therefore he believes he is the muscles He eats and drinks supplements to make him bigger Spike believes she is the brains Karim is the quiet and serious one of the group His father had been an adventurer until he was permanently injured One day at school, their dreams begin to come true as a monster Aliens are loose in the city and only the Monster Club can stop them Spike, Tommy, and Karim are seventh graders on a mission They want to be adventurers Tommy is the biggest of the group and therefore he believes he is the muscles He eats and drinks supplements to make him bigger Spike believes she is the brains Karim is the quiet and serious one of the group His father had been an adventurer until he was permanently injured One day at school, their dreams begin to come true as a monster is on the loose in the school The next day there is another monster next door Suddenly they are applying to be contractors for AppVenture, a monster capturing company What could go wrong Gavin Brown takes us on an adventure in Monster Club Hunters for Hire 2019 Hunters is written for ages 8 through 12, but I had a lot of fun reading it and so will parents who read what their children are reading Brown gives us monsters from Gremlins to Razorbacks to bigger monsters I do not want to give everything away There are also personal issues that the kids deal with in the book as Spike has issues with her father and Karim with his They are the same issue, but represented in different situations Brown is realistic in his writing in that he does not wrap up the real life problems with a bow as real life is not like that, but he does give an ending that is satisfying The mystery of the monsters is fun and exciting, and the solution logical in today s world Hunters gives us friendship, adventure, and fun You cannot ask forthan that in a book Douglas Holgate is the illustrator for Monsters Club Hunters for Hire.I received this book for free in a Goodreads Giveaway and give my opinion without prejudice and freely

    This was cute My first thoughts of the book were that it was probably the most ADD book to have ever ADDed The random descriptions of objects and the constant interrupting of slogans for Brotien items, along with the constant shift in narrator were hugely distracting for me.But, it got better as I got used to those things I began to see themas quirks than distractions I can definitely see how the target audience would simply be amused and not annoyed by these quirks My only true probl This was cute My first thoughts of the book were that it was probably the most ADD book to have ever ADDed The random descriptions of objects and the constant interrupting of slogans for Brotien items, along with the constant shift in narrator were hugely distracting for me.But, it got better as I got used to those things I began to see themas quirks than distractions I can definitely see how the target audience would simply be amused and not annoyed by these quirks My only true problem with this book is that it steals a major plot event from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows view spoiler Three kids two male and one female have to face a dragon in a deep, dark cave They wind up saving the dragon and then fly out of the inescapable dungeon on the dragon s back The dragon flies off home Sounds very familiar hide spoiler I know there s nothing new under the sun, but come on view spoiler The elevator with the sour ooze was at least original hide spoiler Overall, much better than I expected it to be I wouldn t have chosen to read this book on my own, but since one of my seventh graders read it for his book project and it didn t have an AR test, I had to read it to make a test It was definitely a great fit for him I would recommend this for your reluctant readers, male or female, who like video games, twitch streams, or adventure stories

    There s no doubt that the world is filled with monsters, some of whom come in human form But in this book the monsters are loose in the world, and someone needs to protect average citizens from them Seventh graders Tommy Wainwright, Colleen Spike Hernandez, and Karim Khalil are friends, and they decide to put their monster hunting skills to the test by hiring out as Independent Adventure Contractors through a new app They quickly learn that they ve bitten offthan they can chew, and th There s no doubt that the world is filled with monsters, some of whom come in human form But in this book the monsters are loose in the world, and someone needs to protect average citizens from them Seventh graders Tommy Wainwright, Colleen Spike Hernandez, and Karim Khalil are friends, and they decide to put their monster hunting skills to the test by hiring out as Independent Adventure Contractors through a new app They quickly learn that they ve bitten offthan they can chew, and that there s something fishy about the increasing number of monsters on the lam It s a toss up as to whether they haveto fear from the monsters or their employers The story is told from alternating points of view of the three friends, each of whom has personal demons to fight as well as those they encounter Karim and Spike have issues with their respective fathers for very different reasons, while Tommy is constantly trying to bulk up through the use of Brotein shakes and bars as the company s slogans play in his head There are even sections giving information about each monster to add to the fun of reading this book While some of the characters problems are typical for seventh graders, others are a littlecomplex But I m betting this book will garner enough interest that there will be a follow up After all, there are still plenty of monsters out there that need to be caught
