Martin Monsterman by Manny Trembley
[Note: I have closer ties than usual to this book, so please note the disclosure at the bottom.]
A plethora of cute, colorful monsters! I love it.
Martin Monsterman is under a curse that turns him into a random monster for a predetermined amount of time. Moonlit nights for were-creatures, vampires on other nights, yetis and squid monsters during the day. Will Martin be able to overcome his curse?
Nope, it’s a standalone.

Art! The fun, colorful art popped off the page.
Cute love story! There’s a sweet romance in the book, very adorable, but not too sweet. If you’ve seen My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho, you understand what a compliment this pic is. 🙂
Monsters! Poor Martin turns into so many different monsters, he probably turns into your favorite at least once. That is, if you’re the sort of person who has favorite monsters….
I had a fun 45 minutes or so reading this graphic novel, which probably makes it about at perfect reading level for junior high. However, I would say that most any age could enjoy it. I love the bright, cheerful colors, especially when used on the monsters. I’d recommend it to anyone wanting a quick and amusing graphic novel. The only problem I had with it was minor–I few typos/misspellings, but not many.
I received my copy from the author, because I contributed to the Kickstarter that helped bring the book into being. Also, the author is my cousin’s husband’s brother, but I have only met him once (at their wedding).
