Where do monsters go to school? Monster Academy! And anything can happen when your teacher is Miss Mummy. It's not like any other school, but if you're a little monster, you'll fit right in!

Come along with Principal Frank N. Stein into a bright, energetic classroom where the class pet is a big purple boa constrictor, recess is in a swamp, and class bats help build a Creepy Castle in the Monster Maker's Lab. When Tornado Jo, a new student, roars into class, a storm is brewing. Who could ever guess that her new best friend will be a vampire, and she'll help him find his missing fang?

Award-winning writer Jane Yolen teams up with her daughter, Heidi, to present colourful monster children who have familiar human issues such as making friends and learning to help others. In a final twist, Tornado Jo — the worst behaved student — is revealed to be an out-of-control human, not a monster after all. Oh, no! Monsters are more afraid of humans than we are of them! Everybody runs!

Laugh-aloud humour is enhanced by John McKinley's highly imaginative illustrations loaded with fun and hidden jokes tucked into the art. An irresistible romp from start to finish!
