Overview

This edition uses a larger, more clearly defined font to aid reading for children with dyslexia. A standard edition is also available. Awarded the LoveReading4Kids Indie Books We Love award. Winner of a Readers' Favorite 5 Star Award. A new school, new friends and monsters for classmates. Joining a new school is hard for any child. When Trixie Grimble joins a school for monsters, her problems are only just beginning. She soon realises that she's going to have to make some adjustments if she's going to fit in at Monstacademy. There's a big event on the horizon and one of the monsters is plotting to take over the world. Trixie only has a cursed werewolf and a vegetarian vampire to help her. Will they stop him in time? Whatever happens, Trixie and her friends need to make sure that the school stays open and the Halloween Parade goes off without a hitch. Readers are loving this dyslexia adapted edition of the exciting and hilarious adventure that tackles the problems all children face when moving to a new school. My 9 year old daughter loved this book. This is the first book she could read without using coloured overlays. She actually chose to take this book to school to read at break time which is a first. Fantastic text for dyslexic's to read without standing out from the crowd. - Online Review I wish more books like this had been around when I was a child, it would have made reading even better and more imaginative. A character like Trixie would have been a great read as a child and was also a very cute and loving character to read as an adult. - Belle and the Novel This was a really fun read and I can imagine it being a story that is loved and read over and over - it certainly has some brilliant quirky characters! - Donna's Book Blog From a parents point of view I liked that the book showed that we can all be different but all feel the same when we are left out, made fun of or are bullied. - Orchard Book Club's Mini Reviewers I may be an adult, but I still found myself snorting with laughter at the humour, and the snippets that I read out to my class had them giggling away and roaring with laughter. - The Bookish Fairy [My daughter] read it through in one evening and there was complete joy and laughter that could be heard through the ceiling to my office below. She loved the story. - Girl Who Sciences The Monstacademy series books are also available in dyslexia-adapted paperback editions.

I can imagine it being a story that is loved and read over and over - it certainly has some brilliant quirky characters! ... Four stars from me for this one - a well written story - looking forward to reading the second book in the series!! - Donna's Book Blog It is a fun-filled adventure, with names for characters that kids will love such as Miss Flopsbottom and Mr Snickletinkle. The names for everything were well thought out and ultimately original which is so important as kids want to be surprised... I wish more books like this had been around when I was a child, it would have made reading even better and more imaginative. - Belle and the Novel I may be an adult, but I still found myself snorting with laughter at the humour, and the snippets that I read out to my class had them giggling away and roaring with laughter. - The Bookish Fairy What a brilliant, funny children's story this turned out to be! ... I have no hesitation in highly recommending it as a fun read for children and the young at heart, too, and teachers should definitely check it out! - Splashes Into Books [My daughter] read it through in one evening and there was complete joy and laughter that could be heard through the ceiling to my office below. She loved the story. - Girl Who Sciences My 9 year old daughter loved this book. This is the first book she could read without using coloured overlays. She actually chose to take this book to school to read at break time which is a first. Fantastic text for dyslexic's to read without standing out from the crowd. - Amazon Reviewer
