The Notebook of Doom – The Rise of the Balloon Goons by Troy Cummings

image

Warning! This notebook is filled with monsters.

Alexander Bopp has just moved to Stermont and already he thinks it is one creepy town. First, he finds a notebook filled with monster drawings. Then he starts seeing balloon goons – those arm-waving balloon guys – all over town. Are they after him? And what’s really in that notebook?

Alexander is about to find out!


 

I didn’t know what to expect from this book. When I picked it up from my bookstore, all I knew was it was popular with 6-8 year olds who were just starting chapter books, so I thought I’d give it a go.

Think you have it rough? Poor Alexander Bopp just can’t catch a break on his first day of school in a new town. The day just keeps getting weirder and weirder!

This book is about not so scary things, like wacky wavy balloon guys, turning out to be scary! finding the courage to do what’s right and finding friends in unlikely people, like the school bully. Nothing is what it seems!

I can tell you that if your child likes goofy, silly, kind of creepy adventure mysteries, they will enjoy the Notebook of Doom! At the end of the first book, some of my questions still aren’t answered, the mystery continues, and I can’t wait to read the rest of the series!

A great beginner chapter book!
