The Lovereading4Kids comment
Absolutely gripping, this is a brilliantly witty story of a computer game with a difference. When Oscar fires up his father’s new work computer he finds his way into a computer game with a difference. Creating his warrior Montroso on screen is one thing but when Monstroso comes alive – especially as the Bloob Feaster rather than the Blood Feaster on account of Oscar’s mistyping, total chaos follows. Will Oscar be able to manage his monster and get everything under control before his parents come home? Reality and fantasy are cleverly intertwined in this entertaining story. This is just one of a number of Pocket Money Puffins. To view others click here.
Monstroso: A Pocket Money Puffin by Charlie Higson
Oscar is not looking forward to Grandad coming to look after him at the weekend - it means he'll have to play endless rounds of chess or Monopoly, instead of war games on his computer. But when he finds Dad's ancient laptop in the study, he can't resist logging on to something called Project X - and all too soon Oscar creates a real live warrior, who is programmed to obey his every command. However Monstroso's wires are more than a little crossed, and Oscar finds himself in all sorts of trouble...Crazy fighting and monsters abound in Charlie's Higson's highly entertaining story for younger readers.
