    Despite a slow ish start, my little one and I ended up really enjoying this book Up until this, we d done most just fantasy for our read aloud nights, so this was a bit of a departure How do I classify this book Young Adult semi Steampunk with an absurdist twist Yeah, I guess that works as well as anything The story takes place in the city of Ratbridge There are human characters, anthropomorphic animal characters, and pure fantastical creatures such as boxtrolls and cabbageheads Oh, and apparent [...]

    I read this book on 10 yr old Alex s recommendation,and it was pretty good It is a very quirky, unusual book which takes place in an alternate universe populated with unusual creatures who live side by side and underground with people I can t summarize it any better than Ratbridge is populated by a variety of odd creatures and equally unusual humans Underlings, including boxtrolls shy trolls that wear boxes and cabbageheads they worship cabbage and wear them tied to their heads , live in tunnels [...]

    I ve had this book for a couple years now I remember buying at Borders back in either 2005 or 2006 when I was 9 and read probably twice as much as I do now I also remember never being able to finish this book There was something about it Maybe I just didn t find it interesting then or maybe it was the 500 page length of the book Whatever it was, I could never finish it I couple days ago I found this book on my bookshelf and decided to give it another read I still didn t like it The main problem [...]

    Alan Snow s books are reminiscent of a kinder, gentler Roald Dahl Snow captures the concept of whimsical surrealism, but without the dark underpinnings that are at the heart of almost all Dahl books The book s protaganist is a smally boy named Authur, who has lived underground with his grandfather for all of his life We meet Arthur as he is wearing a flying contraption that consists of leathery wings and a box with a crank, quietly fluttering across the night sky above the town of Ratbridge He l [...]

    I have to admit that, after spending the first 5 or so chapters with a permanent crease in my forehead, the book got better Sure, understanding Cheese Hunts and Cabbageheads went a little too far into silly for me, but I m 32 years old and checked it out from an Elementary School library I can easily see that my fifth graders would LOVE this book and I m sure, now that they know it s back on the shelf, they ll be arguing over who s checking it out first In short, it s a great book for elementary [...]

    Here Be Monsters by Alan Snow was an amazing, adventurous book To all fans of the 2014 movie The Boxtrolls, adventurous readers, and readers who like to read the original versions of movies, this book is for you I m warning you now, this book is very long and starts off a bit slow, but in the end, it s a great book The author created the characters for you to easily fall in love with or deeply despise Here Be Monsters relates to the movie version in some ways, but is overall, completely differen [...]

    Rating 4 of 5Buncha nonsense, really The stuff of pure fantasy I loved it One of those books I wish I could ve read for the first time when I was like 11 years old Aside from the quirky illustrations, I think my fave was the imaginative twists on reality, like Oil of Brussels used as a weapon Because what kid thinks of Brussels sprouts as anything other than parent sanctioned poison Be warned No matter what age, you will giggle A LOT whilst reading Here Be Monsters And if you don t, why the hay [...]

    I read this book b c of the new movie coming out BOXTROLLS from Laika I am totally excited about that So I thought, why not read the source material Its big and thick and has over 500 illustrations so really Its a good story too With a lot of action and tight scrapes and a great mix of monsters and other sorts of creatures Very British humour as well meaning there are not too many underpants jokes I really love the idea of the Nautical Laundry, so I might have to read all about that adventure in [...]

    I loved this book so much It s what got me into this genre of books, kind of a steampunk thing from an alternative world I loved all the characters and they were all so quirky I really couldn t put it down, and I mean that literally I pulled an all nighter before going on holiday just to finish this book I don t care it s meant to be aimed at a younger audience I would reccomend this to anyone, it was so feel good but not in a sickening way.

    I wavered between giving this a 4 star rating it s just a children s book after all and a 5 star rating But I finally decided, why SHOULDN T I give a kids book five stars I plowed through it and thoroughly enjoyed the entire thing I found that it was very entertainingly and well written, and far exceeded whatever my vague expectations were.To be clear, unlike some of the things I ve been reading lately, looking at you, Walter Moers this isn t a kids book for adults It s just a regular kids book, [...]

    Presonall, this book is one of the most original I have read I feel it really appeals to all ages, as I feel adults can enjoy it for it s fresh take on the world, while children can enjoy it for it s colorful cast of characters and illustrations For those of you who haven t read it, I ll try to put the plot in a nutshell We begin with our hero, a boy named Arthur, in a flying machine flapping above the streets of Ratbridge, about to steal food to feed his grandfather, who is in the underground b [...]

    very much like Ronald Dahl books, but quite confusing since there s a lot at once the book could be better paced

    Nancy
    Thanks to my sister, Trish.who gave this to me, I thoroughly enjoyed this little story that became the movie The BoxTrolls Entirely different story, but both original book, and storyline for movie were different and sweet.

    M s un 2.5Me gust la idea, me gust el dise o del libro, me gust la historia, me gustaron las ilustraciones y c mo, pese a ser un mundo tan disparatado, todo embona muy naturalmente y parece de lo m s cotidiano.No obstante, el libro es lento Tarda en despegar y cuando finalmente lo logra, nunca llegas a engancharte del todo, no empatizas Llega el momento donde personajes que son importantes los ves como algo m s de fondo, d ndole demasiada presencia a otros que son secundarios o hasta recurrentes [...]

    Here Be Monsters The Ratbridge Chronicles , by Alan Snow was a wonderful story I enjoyed the book because it included some pictures here and there to help me understand what the certain part of the book was talking and referring to The book made me laugh, which helped me feel emotion in the book One of my favorite parts of the story is when they get locked in jail I did struggle to understand parts of it I also thought that some of the character names were a little out of the ordinary, but like [...]

    Meh It was okay The book really liked it s weird stuff, and focused on the world building for much longer than it should have before actually getting into the plot It wasn t a bad book, it just wasn t what I was hoping for It also didn t help that the POV kept on switching between paragraphs without warning or breaks, especially in the final chapters.

    I couldn t finish this The drawings are great and I think it IS a good book for the right target audience, but it didn t translate to adults for me It was just a little too schizophrenic for me it jumps around like crazy, there are tons of characters, and it s all very weird I couldn t get into it, but I like it conceptually I would probably encourage my kids to read it.

    That movie kinda got off track, didn t it

    Rebecca
    Silly, like ridiculously and a bit grotesque The kids laughed tons.

    Not much at all in common with the Laika movie based on this book, but both have their charms.There s a lot story in the book than there is in the movie

    I ve had Alan Snow s Here Be Monsters on my shelf for years, with only the dimmest recollection of what it was about I read it for the first time during convalescence after having my wisdom teeth removed, so it was perhaps little wonder that my memory was somewhat vague I remembered it as cute, but nothing I would read again However, when I noticed it on the shelf I thought I ought to give it another chance, seeing as my only trial of it had been heavily influenced by medication Maybe I would di [...]

    The wretched city of Ratbridge is a secret home to an underground society of engineers the boxtrolls , farmers the gibbering cabbageheads and crafters the rabbit women When this delicate balance is disrupted by unscrupulous men, Ratbridge finds itself headed towards disaster.Here Be Monsters takes off running and promptly trips over its own feet A convoluted and improbable conglomeration of humor, fairy tale, conspiracy and whimsy, the novel throws so many things into its weird little stew that [...]

    I rather struggled to enjoy this book, but I wonder how much of the problem was me and not the book I think I had some trouble staying in the right headspace And I couldn t help comparing it a little to Terry Pratchett s Tiffany Aching series, because of the cheese But it s a totally unfair comparison I think I have trouble staying engaged with the simple writing and wacky plot points that are targeted at middle graders On a technical note I read this as an ebook, primarily on my phone but also [...]
