Charles just moved to Echo City, and some of his new neighbors give him the creeps. They sneak into his room, steal his toys, and occasionally, they try to eat him.

The place is teeming with monsters!

Lucky for Charles, Echo City has Margo Maloo, monster mediator. No matter who’s causing trouble, Margo knows exactly what to do—the neighborhood kids say monsters are afraid of her. It's a good thing, because Echo City's trolls, ogres, and ghosts all have one thing in common: they don't like Charles very much.

1. When I first saw the cover of this book, I was pretty much sold right then because of the illustrative style. When I actually read the synopsis of the book, I was already clearing a spot on my bookshelves. I'm a lover of graphic novels and will pretty much read whatever I can get my hands on as far as that goes, sometimes finding a new favorite every now and then. I was so excited when this book arrived in the mail and I was even more excited to read it. So, here's my review!

2. I just loved the characters so much! Charles was a fun little guy to follow throughout the story since he's not too happy about the idea of moving to a new place and isn't any more excited when he learns there's a troll hiding in his closet. His journalistic habits cause him to snoop around to figure out what else is going on in his apartment building which leads him to meeting the infamous Margo Maloo, the girl monster mediator that all monsters are afraid of. She helps Charles with his monster problem and allows Charles to tag along on two more cases so long as he doesn't get eaten by an ogre or something. I loved Margo and thought she was very much of a professional when it came to dealing with monsters and was very mature for her age. Nothing fazed her and she was a problem solver.

3. I love the illustrations in this book as well as all the colors used and it's totally one of my favorite graphic novels art wise. The storytelling was great and funny, witty and adventurous while still being fun and relaxing to read. It's a great start to this graphic novel series and I'm very much interested to see what happens next in the story of Margo Maloo. I think readers of all ages will be able to enjoy this one since it's about monsters, mystery, friendship and most importantly, that there really are monsters hiding in your closet, but it doesn't mean it's a bad thing.

4. Overall, this was a very fun read and I can't wait for the next book already. If you want something quick and entertaining to read then I suggest picking this one up since it's both of those things and so much more!
