Combines gleefully immature (“buttmunch,” “Crapsacks!”) humor with witty one-liners and a fast, active pace—easy to enjoy.

Synopsis

Fans of Max Helsing and the Thirteenth Curse and the Wereworld series will love this action-packed ride, full of laughs, gore, and fantastic beasts!
 
Between carrying on the monster-hunting tradition of his family, the van Helsings, and trying to stay out of trouble at school, Max is ready for a day off. So when his class heads to the mountains on a camping trip, Max can’t wait to leave the stress behind and get his s’mores on. But monster-hunting doesn’t take a vacation, and soon Max and his gearhead friend Syd find themselves seeking the answers to who—or what—is behind a raft of mysterious camper kidnappings.  The locals say it’s a bigfoot, rumored to roam the forest, but as more and more magical beasts rear their shaggy, scaly, and horned heads, Max starts to wonder if what’s afoot is something even bigger—and scarier—than the Beast of Bone Creek.


From the Hardcover edition.
