Mystical Monster Mission.., 19 Nov 2011
Monster Mission is a wonderful story about 3 aunts on a mystical island. This island is inhabited by many strange and magical creatures. Including a dodo and a giant worm! These aunts are older than anyone thinks, and with them having no children, they decide to kidnap 3 children of the right type to help them. Unfortunately one aunt kidnaps a horrible boy, (One of those terribly spoilt ones).
The second aunt picks a girl on her way to her father on a train, who is upset and depressed. The aunt talks about 'The perfect place' and the little girl is thinking about the place, when she is whacked on the head and stuffed in a small bag!
The third aunt is taking a small adopted boy from a distant land to his newest boarding school, where they get beaten with a humongous cane. She saves him from the school when she hears his story and takes him to the island!
They have many adventures on the island and become great friends. I deeply enjoyed this story. I recommend you to read this wonderful story, but I do NOT recommend you stuffing small children into bags and running off with them!
