Bobbi Katz, Adam McCauley (Illustrator). For several years my friend Bobbi Katz has been winning our heats at poetry salons by reading her "Monsterologist" poems. Now they appear in wonderfully appealing book. And I appear as a PhD in zombie studies.
Look at a secret collection of letters, notes, interviews and files on some of the most infamous mythological and literary creatures. Readers will relish Bobbi Katz's original, irreverent look at monsters both celebrated and unknown and Adam McCauley's dynamic, bold design.
The Monsterologist: A Memoir in Rhyme is "ghostwritten" by Bobbi Katz and illustrated by Adam McCauley. The poems are all about various types of monsters and things-that-go-bump: from Dracula and Frankenstein's monster and ghosts to the Loch Ness Monster, Godzilla and (of course) Zombies.

For instance, in the poem about Grendel, his mom's recipe for Danish Pastry begins: "Take half a dozen dozing Danes. Pull out their brains. The illustrations for this book were created using: lots of paper, spaghetti, twigs, tape, Adam's great grandmother's stamp collection, paint, file folders, rubber stamps, a scanner, old sketchbooks, new sketchbooks, a printer, a ballpoint pen, a Xerox machine, scraperboard, computer programs, clip art, things found on the street, and some string.

This book is written in rhyme as a fact book on various scary creatures like werewolves, ogres, trolls and Frankenstein's monster. The layout of the book is like that of a memoir or journal, with "articles" and "photos" cut and pasted and interspersed with the writing and the memoir writer's personal illustrations. The monster art is great and dark and the poetry is complex yet readable by a fourth or fifth grader. Meter and structure are tampered with. I think this book may inspire a love of poetry among kids. Could be used as a humorous read aloud and in poetry.
