As the assistant to Margo Maloo, Charles has gone on assignment in some pretty interesting locations. He’s been to a vampire’s lair, an ogre’s den, and even a monster grocery store! But he’s never been to the Downside, Echo City’s underground monster metropolis that is super mysterious and DEFINITELY off-limits to kids. But a settlement of giant spiders is about to be dynamited by unwitting construction workers–and, coincidentally, one of those giant spiders accidentally bites Charles. His cure and the spiders’ salvation lie in the Downside–if Charles and Margo can make it in time.
Thank you to NetGalley and First Second for an eARC of this title.
The Creepy Case Files of Margo Maloo is a graphic novel series that I adore. It is a funny and whimsical series about kids trying to help monsters while the monsters live hidden in the human world. This newest installment adds in a nefarious mystery person who is purposely trying to make the monsters leave their homes. For any little monster loving kid, or adult, will absolutely love this series.
The art is colourful and vibrant. Each character is distinct and the monsters are fantastic! I mean, giant spiders and vampires and all kinds of monsters are represented and so amazingly drawn and depicted. I also find that the plot was so fast paced and exciting.
