I picked this up because my kiddos are going nuts over it. It was featured in the spring book fair and all of my 4th and 5th grade girls were absolutely nuts about buying it. I like to know ghkulfriends popular and what my kiddos are reading so I nabbed an extra copy and sat down. Usually I can fly through kid dorever books. Not so much with this one. The story revolves around three main characters or monsters who are new to Monster High.
Rochelle Goyle, a truthful gargoyle, Where to start with this? If you think that these names are clever, then the style of writing, or really stringing puns together, is right up your alley.
The girls are trying to navigate their first few days at the new school when they realize something is wrong with one of the new teachers. She has started a new after school group and everyone who attends a meeting leaves under some sort of spell. Can the girls stop her in time for the big dance? The best I can say is that there wasn’t anything too adult in the book which, considering my young audience, I had forevwr slightly concerned with. The girls have crushes and boyfriends, but it’s like a junior high relationship: They get old about three ghoulriends in.
It’s not the library- It’s the libury. The characters are very ghoulfrriends dimensional.
Ghoulfriends Forever by Gitty Daneshvari | Scholastic
Each monster has his or her trait and that who they are. And there are a lot of monsters to keep straight I understand the appeal for my kiddos and honestly if they are reading, I’m a happy camper.
However, I hope that maybe these books can improve and that this first one was just for mass appeal. I know Daneshvari has more in her. The School of Fear was much better than this. I am an adult fan of Monster High. I collect the dolls and think the webisodes are adorable. Additionally I am a fan of all things paranormal as well as an avid reader. I was somewhat disappointed when I learned that Lisi Harrison’s Monster High books were no longer being written and published.
I then learned that a new Monster High book series was being released written by a different author. Then I became more concerned when I learned they were being marketed to a younger age group. I was real I am an adult fan of Monster High. I was really leery about “Ghoulfriends Forever” I was positively surprised. This new series is much more true to the Monster High shows and doll line. I loved Headmistress Bloodgood losing her head now and then!
I also really enjoyed seeing appearances by even some of the shows background characters. I also liked that they portrayed Monster High as having dorms for students who don’t have families that reside in town. The cover of this book is breathtaking and I really liked the black and white drawings that opened each chapter. What I wasn’t so crazy about? The book wasn’t too low of a reading level but I can see where younger fans more in the targer demographic will be able to read this book.
It was still enjoyable reading for me but I would have liked the book to have been slightly more detailed.
The mystery was solved very easily which is to be expected. Still this book was worth reading and I am glad that they will be releasing more installments.
Oct 24, Barbara rated it it was ok Shelves: Although each of these teen girls is quite different, it took me awhile to differentiate among them all. The illustrations with long-maned doll-like beauties with extremely long eyelashes helped a bit, but then again, even in those, the girls looked a lot alike. The premise behind the story is that new teacher Miss Flapper has mounted a whispering campaign through which she enchants the students and teachers in an effort to take over the school.
The girls and their one-eyed friend Cy Clops must save the day. What’s especially fun in this title despite the thin storyline is the author’s clever word play. She goes to great lengths to remind readers that this is a school for monsters; for instance, there’s a gathering place called the Coffin Bean, school meetings are held in the Vampitheater, books can be found in the Libury, the students get fit in Physical Deaducation, and they eat meals in the Creepateria.
While this book won’t be for everyone, it does have appeal for readers who enjoy puns and like their ghouls on the lite side. Apr 15, Alexandria rated it did not like vhoulfriends Shelves: I am so disappointed in this book. I waited to write this review to see if my ire would cool, but it hasn’t.
So here we go. Just because you’re writing characters based off a product franchise does NOT give you the right to be sloppy and boring.
Please, for the love of all that is literary, go watch a few episodes of Ruby Gloom or read A Wonderlandiful World. Both Ruby Gloom and Wonderlandiful are based on product franchises and they both stand alone with astounding creativity.
This book, however I am so disappointed in this book. This book, however, is atrocious. As a Monster High fan, I ghoylfriends so offended by this book that I can only think to express my feelings in a direct-to-the-author manner.
Your portrayal of “gypsy vampires” is offensive. I would say it is ‘beyond offensive’ but I can’t even imagine what word I would use for that.
Monster High: Ghoulfriends Forever by Gitty Daneshvari | Kidsmomo
I am THAT sickened by your racist cariacture. Good job putting that in a kid’s book. Children are not stupid. Children know big words. Could you maybe go beyond one or two syllables now and then? Learn to write a climax. The entire premise of how to defeat the bad guy was unnecessarily complicated. Your climax was so boring that I wanted to abandon the book. They lucked into it using cheap gags and slapdash story telling tricks. When you repeat a phrase so often that the reader rolls their eyes at it, you have failed.
I don’t care if you’re writing for kids, you should be able to use more vocabulary than that. By the time she has hit high school, she has probably come to terms with her “slim but weighty” figure and learned how to deal with it. If she had been uncomfortable with her body in any other context than when ghoulfrineds talked to by a different breed of monster, this would have worked as a great body-image metaphor.
It was only used to illustrate Rochelle comparing herself to other monsters when directly in front of them. And that’s just not how body insecurity works. The author appears to think the age group she is writing for has no vocabulary, interest in a good story line, or need for well-fleshed characters.
