"A thrilling gallery of boojums from the pages, scrolls, and clay tablets of literary classics...Readers on the lookout for something wicked this way coming will be terrified, grossed out, delighted." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Johnson offers entertaining insights into each monster's origin story, while suggesting that great literature creates characters that can truly take on lives of their own--and what's scarier (and cooler) than that?" --Publishers Weekly

"Readers prepared for a big scare with a side order of literary history will love this collection...Johnson's casual descriptions of horrifying tales will delight middle grade readers while he successfully lures them to grander-scheme ideas. A must-have for middle school libraries and those whose readers seek out the creepy and the scary." --School Library Journal, starred review

"Perfect for Halloween and beyond, this is a ready-made syllabus for an engaging literature course that will have readers shrieking--with delight!" --Booklist, starred review

"[This book] will leave you jumping at the sound of a cricket or the tapping of a tree branch." --TIME for Kids
