Booklist - 07/01/2018 Welcome to Monster Academy, where creatures of all stripes attend. Enter new student Tornado Jo, who spins so fast, she crashes into lunchboxes, knocks down chairs, bumps into classmates, and yells a refrain of “NO! NO! NO!” During math time, the teacher asks the students to write how many teeth they have lost. Everyone takes a turn but Vic, a little vampire, but before the day is over, his tooth is gone! Tornado Jo, meanwhile, eventually spins so fast, she falls out of her costume—revealing a little girl. Though the story is all over the place, this rather riotous book has a good message about accepting others for who they are inside rather than out—something the monsters realize when Jo helps find Vic’s tooth. McKinley’s colorful, flailing art whisks the fun right along. - Copyright 2018 Booklist.
