This was a very fun book to read, but I will keep my review short. Sorry, sometimes it is hard to write a review, sometimes the words just don’t want to come out.
I loved that Max had to burp to become a big big monster and sneeze when he wanted to go back. However, you got to burp sometimes, and he is also allergic to flowers, so you can imagine the chaos that happens. Max wants to be a monster though so he decides to become a monster hero and help people in need/find criminals. I just loved that. Now he can be a monster and out, but not get into too much trouble.
Along the way he gets a nemesis who is very annoying, I give the story a bit lower score because of that. I would have rather seen him gone. Even later when he turned to be a bit nicer. Sorry, just no.
I also loved the backstory on his parents and then especially his mums backstory,
Then there is another mystery as there is something else going on that has to do with the country Max’ mum came from. That part was a lot of fun and it became even more exciting and fun near the end of the book!
The illustrations were cute and fun though I did think it was a shame not all of them were included and at points there was a: Illustrations to come.
I liked the epilogue. While I probably won’t be reading the next book, reading this on my PC (yay for PDF) didn’t really work out for my eyes/head. But if I ever see these books in my library (small chance since they prefer Dutch books) I will bring them along to read.
All in all a pretty fun book!
