Middle grade readers who enjoy a spooky read should not miss The Boy of a Thousand Faces

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

When The Beast arrives, though, 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?

Boy of a Thousand Faces was on the Texas Bluebonnet Award Masterlist.
