Monster Slayers Packs Action and Suspense Into Riveting Novel for Kids

May 11, 2010

CHAPPAQUA, N.Y., May 11 /PRNewswire/ — Monsters have long haunted children’s dreams, and battling them has been the stuff of myth and legend for centuries. Now, from Wizards of the Coast Books for Young Readers, comes Monster Slayers, an action-packed, suspense-filled novel that will keep kids on the edge of their seats. This page-turning adventure is a companion to the New York Times best-selling A Practical Guide to Monsters.

Like their young readers, the characters consult A Practical Guide to Monsters for clues about how to handle each type of monster. Fans of Dungeons & Dragons will recognize many of the monsters and applaud their defeat, whether by magic, by sword, or by stealth.

Meanwhile, readers who relish the latest in vampire romance will want to sink their teeth into Nocturne, a companion novel to A Practical Guide to Vampires. Vampire fans will also want to spring for Still Sucks to Be Me: More All-True Confessions of Mina Hamilton Smith, Teen Vampire, the eagerly awaited sequel to the popular Sucks to Be Me by Kimberly Pauley. Margot Adler, author of Drawing Down the Moon and correspondent for National Public Radio, says “Of all the Vampire novels I have read, Sucks to Be Me was my absolute favorite. It was smart, original, with a lovely, honest heroine, and it was laugh-out-loud funny.” Visit www.DungeonsandDragons.com for more information.
