Monster on the Hill

by Rob Harrell. Marietta, GA: Top Shelf, 2013


Wonderfully told story with a fresh twist on evil dragons. Full of strong characters, puns, humor, and surprises. Monsters, dragons, and town criers get a fresh new look in this charming book that all ages will enjoy.


Starred review from Kirkus Reviews and multiple awards including ALA Notable Children's Book, YALSA Great Graphic Novels for Teens, YALSA Quick Picks for Reluctant Readers, and featured on ALSC's Graphic Novel Core Reading List.


See how to use this book to teach character development and good vs. evil (pp.103-106), and literary devices: onomatopoeia (pp. 83-84; 101-102) in Worth A Thousand Words: Using Graphic Novels to Teach Visual and Verbal Literacy.
