The Mortification of Fovea Munson + GIVEAWAY!



I received a copy from Disney Book Group for the sole purpose of this review
By Mary Hinn Heider 
In Stores Now! Released June 5, 2018 
Recommended for ages 8 -12 
Published by Disney-Hyperion


ABOUT THE BOOK: 

Fovea Munson is nobody's Igor. 

True, her parents own a cadaver lab where they perform surgeries on dead bodies. And yes, that makes her gross by association, at least according to everyone in seventh grade. And sure, Fovea's stuck working at the lab now that her summer camp plans have fallen through. But she is by no means Dr. Frankenstein's snuffling assistant! That is, until three disembodied heads, left to thaw in the wet lab, start talking. To her. Out loud. What seems like a nightmare, or bizarre hallucination, is not. Fovea is somebody's Igor, all right. Three somebodies, actually. And they need a favor. 

With a madcap sense of humor and a lot of heart (not to mention other body parts), this is a story about finding oneself, finding one's friends, and embracing the moment.

Note, this is not a picture book, but there are a few scattered throughout.


Avery is 11.5, so she fits right in with the recommended ages of this book. And so far she is seeming to be really enjoying it. She is about 120 pages in (336 total pages) and thinks it's a really cute story. She likes that it has a bit of a spooky factor and fits right in with it being Halloween week. 

Avery is all about scary things. She's been watching scary movies since she was about 7 or 8 (I'm talking SCARY like Nightmare on Elm Street, IT!, Children of the Corn, etc. She's seen it all), so this book is right up her alley, she loves all thing scary. She's actually going as a Killer Clown for Halloween!

Overall, she thinks this book is really cute and would recommend it to other young readers. 

Price: $12.21 on Amazon for the Hardcover copy. $8.99 for paperback. 

Overall: *****
ONE Lucky Reader will win a copy of the book AND a $50 Visa Gift Card!
