Review: Professor Gargoyle by Charles Gilman

Title: Professor Gargoyle
Author: Charles Gilman
Series: Tales from Lovecraft Middle School
Publisher: Quirk
Rating: 5/5 stars


Robert Arthur has just started Lovecraft Middle School, and he discovers that strange things are happening. Rats are running wild in the corridors, the science teacher is acting weird, students are disappearing, and the school library has something eery about it. With the help of some friends, can he discover what's going on before it's too late?

I received the physical copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I don't often read middle grade books, but I found this one to be of enjoyment. It was a quick and easy read and I found I was following the story along with the main character Robert.
The characters were fantastic, and you become close friends with the good ones.
There are so many mysteries clinging onto the pages that I found myself hooked.
The beginning of the book is where you are introduced to Robert and his life. Once you learn about the character, this is where the strange thing begin to happen, so straight away there is action and suspense.
I love the general structure to the book. There are illustrations throughout the book that helps you connect with it and picture the story.
The cover is fantastic. It's creepy and draws you in, especially as it is holographic.
The ending to the book leaves you wanting to continue to the next one.
Overall I'm going to give this book five stars because there were no flaws, and was an enjoyable read. This series can be read for any age.
Pick this book up, and give it a try. It won't let you down.
If you are into monsters, mysteries and dangers, then definitely go for it.

Happy reading =)
