A Monster Calls is beautiful and heartbreaking. We follow Connor who is tormented by a reoccurring nightmare that he is forced to face when a Monster appears at his window one night. The monster wants the truth which is something Connor doesn’t want to admit. As we follow this young boy and how he tries to stay strong even though his mother is dying, you can’t stop your heart strings from being tugged.
Along with this story are wonderful illustrations that I couldn’t get enough of! The story was well paced and the illustrations came just when you wanted them too! The whole thing flowed so smoothly it was over before I was ready for it to end.
It’s hard to review this book without spoilers, so I will keep this short. A Monster Calls is a beautiful journey of a young boy facing his greatest fear and an unlikely “monster” helping him along the way. 5/5 stars and a mist read for everyone!
Thanks for listening to my babbles and until next time,
