Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Because Alonzo King was born on Halloween, he has always loved monsters. But no one would ever guess that he lives in a haunted house with a graveyard out back, communicates with the dead, turns into a six-armed, slime-covered creature, or is a walking encyclopedia on horror films! However, when The Beast arrives, not even Alonzo can track it down. Will he be able to solve the mystery of the creature stalking his town and make his dream of becoming The Boy of a Thousand Faces come true?

01-02 TX Bluebonnet Award Masterlist

Synopsis:

Born on Halloween, Alonzo King swims with the Loch Ness monster and runs with Big Foot. He can name every monster movie ever made. But when the Beast comes to town, can he solve the mystery and become what he’ s always wanted to be— The Boy of a Thousand Faces? Brian Selznick’ s remarkable black-and-white portraits add depth and intimacy to this funny, touching story of the friendship between a boy, an old man, and a small town on Halloween night.
