Frances and the Monster

We rated this book:


Frances and the Monster is a thrilling tale of adventure and suspense. In this novel, Frances Stenzel, daughter of two talented inventors, is left behind on a trip to a convention at Brussels. Instead of getting to see cool inventions, she is stuck at home in her family’s mansion, which she hasn’t left in over seven years.

She is left in the care of H.O.B.B.E.S., a new robotic tutor programmed specifically to care for her. In an effort to get rid of her tutor, she awakens a terrifying monster, which escapes and heads toward the nearby town. With the still functioning head of H.O.B.B.E.S., she embarks on a journey to recapture the monster before it can do any harm. Along the way, she makes a new friend and new enemies, and she even starts to understand H.O.B.B.E.S. better.

This book was extremely well written. The world building and story were amazing, and the characters were dynamic and relatable. I would recommend this book to kids from sixth grade to tenth grade, especially if they like adventure novels.
