Jane Yolen and Heidi Stemple return, with Monster Academy!

Sunday, September 9th, 2018, 2 p.m.

Jane Yolen returns to Gibson's, this time bringing her co-author and daughter, Heidi Stemple, as they ponder: where do monsters go to school? Monster Academy!

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, the teacher is a mummy cursed to speak only in verse, 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? The colorful monster children in this book have familiar human issues such as making friends and learning to help others.

Award-winning writer Jane Yolen teams up with her daughter, Heidi, to present colorful 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 humor 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.
