Who Wrote It?

Curtis lives with his family in Cheshire, surrounded by a collection of film and animation memorabilia. He grew up in the 1970s on a diet that included Star Wars, Action Man, Flash Gordon, LEGO, Fighting Fantasy books and Harryhausen monster movies. As  a horror fan from this young age, pre-school television seemed like a natural career path for him. His first experience of film work was for the Oscar-winning Wallace & Gromit Aardman team. The animated series Frankenstein's Cat, commissioned by the BBC, has been shown around the globe. 

What's It About?

Descended from a long line of monster hunters, Max Helsing does a pretty good job of being an 8th grader by day and keeping his town safe from demons, ghouls and the occasional mummy by night. That is, until he turns 13 and discovers he's been cursed by an ancient vampire who wants him dead - at any cost. To save the world - and his life - Max must rely on his wise-cracking best friend, cantankerous monster, computer genius neighbour, and brand-new puppy. He'll need all their help and more to break the Thirteenth Curse!

Fact File

Curtis designed the worldwide hit children's television show Bob the Builder.

He is the author/illustrator of many children's books (including the acclaimed Frankenstein's Cat). His own animated series Frankesnstein’s Cat and Raa Raa, the Noisy Lion can both be seen on the BBC.

He was a model-maker and prop-painter on Tim Burton's Mars Attacks!

Molly from Alwoodley Primary School:

I didn't really enjoy this book because it wasn't my style and the last book I read was quite sweet and calm so it was a massive change. Monsters are not my thing so I knew I wouldn't like it from the start. Someone in my group loved it maybe you will to.

Molly gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 2 out of 5 and now plans to read Beetle Boy by M. G. Leonard.

Victor from Victoria Primary Academy:

I didn't like this book because it was boring and just way to long. most people like me, like short books like 150 pages long and intresting books like library of lemons.

Evie from Victoria Primary Academy:

I didn't really like this book as I couldn't get into it at all. The description was great but it just wasn't for me as the chapters seemed too long. I would recommend this to others so that they have the chance to their own opinion on the book. It wasn't for me.

Stefania from Victoria Primary Academy:

I didn't really like this book because it was very long a quite boring. I didn't want to continue as all it was about was Max defeating monsters there was no surprises and there were to much characters and I didn't know who was speaking at the time and it was very confusing. It was very descriptive however I didn't understand half of the words. Out of all I gave it 2/5.

Stefania gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 2 out of 5 and now plans to read Invisible Inc. by Steve Cole.

Macy from Victoria Primary Academy :

I didn't really like this book as it was very confusing and at the start of each chapter, it changed too a different scene. I liked the bit where the creatures had their own fact file section and the author used good vocabulary. It wasnt for me thats why i gave this book a 2 out of 5, Macy.

Noah from Holy Family Priamary school:

This book was very rushed and not done very well I felt like the author ran out of ideas and that he mixed up the books planning. There were numerous occasions were I felt that the book made no sense this book makes me feel very uneasy not the fact about the gore but the way how the book was written

Noah gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 2 out of 5 and now plans to read A Library of Lemons by Jo Cotterill.

Phoebe from Gildersome primary:

This book took me a few weeks to read because I couldn't get into it.I gave it a 1 because I didn't get the story.This book also gave me nightmares so I would recommend this book to anyone who likes monster books and is brave.

Phoebe gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 1 out of 5 and now plans to read Beetle Boy by M. G. Leonard.

Edward from Barwick-in-Elmet C of E Primary School:

It was a good book-really cool drawings and characters but I got a bit confused towards the end.

Edward gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 3 out of 5 and now plans to read Invisible Inc. by Steve Cole.

Isaac from Holy Family Catholic Primary:

This book is PHENOMINAL!I loved it.Its my favourite book so far!!I cant relate to this book but i wish i did.Max is definitely my favourite character because he is quite laid back.I love this to bits!!one thing i would change though is put monster profiles at the end of sentences.

Isaac gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 4 out of 5 and now plans to read Invisible Inc. by Steve Cole.

Aine from Holy family primary cathlic school:

i did not understand this book at all.It had way to much description and the chapters are a bit long.If younger children read this book it might scare them because it has so much gor and monsters.This book was also a chore to read.I would not recommend this to anyone.

Aine gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 1 out of 5 and now plans to read Invisible Inc. by Steve Cole.

Hope from HolyFamilyPrimarySchool:

This book, for me, was so-so. At sometimes my attention was lost and at over times I couldn't stop reading. The prologue was long and had information that I believe had no point, why did he describe her as a goth?

Numerous chapters were too long that if you want to read one chapter it takes a few minutes.

I feel like this book should be an older read.

Hope gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 3 out of 5 and now plans to read Invisible Inc. by Steve Cole.

Reece from Holy Family Catholic School:

This book was very interesting although the language was hard to understand . It felt to me like this was his first book he had ever written.The front cover really cover really was intriging because it was very gory . Inside they were pictures of bloodthursty animals which were in the middle of the pages. I reccomend this book to people who like a good horror book .

Reece gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 3 out of 5 and now plans to read Invisible Inc. by Steve Cole.

Jessica from Holy Family Catholic Primary School:

I didn't enjoy this book.

I didn't enjoy it because I felt like the perspectives were always very diffcult to understand. There were parts where I had to go back a few times to see who was talking at which time. Also, the ghoul profiles in the middle of the sentences, they just got confusing after a while. I would, personally, put that all at the back so that I could view them easier. Yes, the start was very good but the rest of it was poor. I felt like this was a chore to read over time. The humor was not nessicary at times, it was unappropriate to use in this type of book.

Overall, this was a very dissapointing book.

I rate it actually 0, but I have to rate it 1.

Jessica gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 1 out of 5 and now plans to read Invisible Inc. by Steve Cole.

Bavdeep from Alwoodley primary school:

This was pretty good book and it was nice to read. It probably wasn't my favourite book but I liked some of the parts. I thought the monsters were quite good as well.overall it was not bad.

Bavdeep gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 4 out of 5 and now plans to read Murder in Midwinter by Fleur Hitchcock.

Lilia from St Margarets:

Max Helsing Monster Hunter is a very boyish book that just wasn't for me. I found it wasnt very exciting and this book just wasnt what i like to read but whoever reads it next might like it.

Lilia gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 2 out of 5 and now plans to read Invisible Inc. by Steve Cole.

Kaitlin from Allerton Bywater Primary:

I didn't really enjoy this book - it was very grim (it described a decapitated head rolling into Max's lap) but it was described in a lot of detail.

Kaitlin gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 2 out of 5 and now plans to read Beetle Boy by M. G. Leonard.

Jessica from Crossley Street Primary School:

I have read the book and the best part was the monster factfiles. I like how the author has written the book.

I really enjoyed the book but not as much as I hoped. I think that because I wanted more adventures and danger.

Noor gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 3 out of 5 and now plans to read Invisible Inc. by Steve Cole.

Olivia from Carlton Primary School:

Max Helsing Monster Hunter is not my type of book. It is full of freakish monsters who are trying to hunt Max down. I think that this book goes on a lot. I recommend this book to people who aren't scared of monsters.

Olivia gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 2 out of 5 and now plans to read Cogheart by Peter Bunzl.

Cristina from Shire Oak Primary:

I didn't like this book although i didn't finish it.It was very tedious.

I gave that book about 3 opportunities but I still didn't like it.This book is not my type book.

Cristina gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 1 out of 5 and now plans to read Cogheart by Peter Bunzl.

Sophie from Adel Primary School:

This book was not my favourite. I found that whilst reading it, I got bored and zoned out as the story didn't grip me. When I reached the end of the chapter, I realised I had no idea about what just happened. However, the ending is good and interesting.

The book wasn't my thing but I would recommend it if you like monsters and mysteries. I rated this book a 2 because the content was boring.

Sophie gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 2 out of 5 and now plans to read Murder in Midwinter by Fleur Hitchcock.

Arzoo from Harehills Primary School:

I gave this book 2 out of 5 because it created suspense and it sounded like something major is going to happen however, it was just boring. Not a book for me.

Arzoo gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 2 out of 5 and now plans to read Beetle Boy by M. G. Leonard.

Ben from Gildersome Primary:

Max Helsing lives his life as a monster hunter slaying vampires, gargoyles and other corrupted or magical creatures.He does it to protect his town Gallows city and downstairs there is a portal to the Underworld. He even befriends a hellhound however, he comes to fight an incredibly powerful yet, corrupted ancient warlock. He becomes marked and must destroy the vampires heart or cruel fate will reign upon him. I didn't enjoy this book all that much mostly because it lacked the vibe of monster hunting for me but, it was quite good otherwise.I would like to ask why you chose the selection of monsters?

Ben gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 3 out of 5 and now plans to read Beetle Boy by M. G. Leonard.

Will from Pool C E Primary School:

Great story,great idea and great story all round good book.love eightball and the part when wing got caught by Udo Vendemeier

Will gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 5 out of 5 and now plans to read Invisible Inc. by Steve Cole.

Amy from pool in wharfedale primary school:

I really like the book because Max Helsing helps his friends Syd and Wing escape monsters such as a fire phantasm an earth elemental and gooles. I thought that this book(no offence)was going to be the most boring book ever but it wasn't!It is good for all people .I don't really like monsters but this book is amazing!If you haven't read this book, well you should thanks -Amy.

Amy gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 4 out of 5 and now plans to read Beetle Boy by M. G. Leonard.

Sara from Alwoodley Primary School:

I did not expect to enjoy reading this book, as the front cover and the the title didn't appeal to me at first, however it turned out better than I thought it would. The story plot was full of action and excitement, with eerie, scary and unexpected parts at times. Whenever a new monster was introduced in the book, a clear, detailed fact file was shown, including drawings. In the story, Max Van Helsing - a trainee monster hunter - is being attacked by all monsters since the day of his 13th birthday, and life is getting scarier for him by the minute. I would recommend this book for ages 10+, because of the frightening parts.

Sara gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 4 out of 5 and now plans to read A Library of Lemons by Jo Cotterill.

aimee from green hill primary:

This book was quite boring and it did not make any sense. I did like some of this book. I like the character Max because he is adventurous.

aimee gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 3 out of 5 and now plans to read Cogheart by Peter Bunzl.

Luke from Green Lane Primary Academy:

This is an action story by Curtis Jobling where there is a teenager called Max who hunts the supernatural world of MONSTERS! The book is simply about Max reuniting with his long lost father VAN HELSING! I would rate this book 3 stars because there are some boring bits in it.

Luke gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 4 out of 5 and now plans to read Beetle Boy by M. G. Leonard.

Declan from Alwoodley primary school:

I really like this book 📚 because the pictures are weird but the description was amazing

Declan gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 4 out of 5 and now plans to read Murder in Midwinter by Fleur Hitchcock.

Arazo from Alwoodley Primary School:

Max Helsing wasn't my kind of book because it went on to a different scene on each of the chapters. Also this book involved laughter, like at the end of every chapter he says a joke. My favorite part was when this older girl was hypnotized. My favorite character was Max because he doesn't give up and he just carry's on with anything.

Arazo gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 3 out of 5 and now plans to read Beetle Boy by M. G. Leonard.

CONNOR from BEESTON PRIMARY SCHOOL:

I DID NOT LIKE THIS BOOK, BECAUSE IT WAS SCARY I WOULD RECCOMEND TO PEOPLE WHO LIKE SCARY STUFF. I FOUND IT A LITTLE TOO SCARY AND IT WAS JUST NOT A BOOK FOR ME.

CONNOR gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 1 out of 5 and now plans to read Beetle Boy by M. G. Leonard.

James from Beeston Primary School:

I LIKE THIS BOOK AS IT TREATS PROPER VAMPIRIC SOULS WITH RESPECT BUT TREATS UNHOLY VAMPIRES LIKE HASTUR WITH DISRESPECT. I WOULD RECOMMEND IT TO PEOPLE WHO LIKE ADVENTURE AS IT WAS QUITE THRILLING.

James gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 5 out of 5 and now plans to read Beetle Boy by M. G. Leonard.

Hanfaa from Beeston Primary School:

I HATED the book as it didn't hook me and there was hardly any vocabulary to make me picture the characters. If I had to recommend it I would say it was for people who liked monsters but this was not a story which I enjoyed.

Hanfaa gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 5 out of 5 and now plans to read Beetle Boy by M. G. Leonard.

Ellen from Alwoodley Primary School:

This isn't the sort of book I would normally pick off a shelf but it is very good. I think it is good for fans of Percy Jackson. It is full of action but sometimes it can be a bit boring. It is funny how Max always tells a joke after defeating a monster. It is my favorite Book Awards book so far. I haven't actually finished reading it though.

Ellen gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 4 out of 5 and now plans to read A Library of Lemons by Jo Cotterill.

Ellie from White Laith Primary School:

I think the book was okay but I think to make it better next time do not

put pictures of the monsters in the middle of a sentence as I forgot the story and I had to read the page again. I would recommend this book to people who like monsters.

Ellie gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 4 out of 5 and now plans to read Murder in Midwinter by Fleur Hitchcock.

Layla from Alwoodley Primary School:

This book was decent yes it is detailed and lovely but not my thing. It was difficult to understand since it was American. This is Leeds book awards and I'm extremely Yorkshire. I did enjoy this book, however it was off putting. I am a tomboy but I would enjoy a stronger female figure not just Max. I didn't count Syd. I hope others enjoy this book! Your a good author just not my type.

Layla gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 3 out of 5 and now plans to read Murder in Midwinter by Fleur Hitchcock.

Connor from White Laith Primary:

This is the best book I've read so far! It was great and I loved the character of Max. I think the idea of having a teenager as the main character was amazing. It was that good I have even started to read the second book in the series!

Connor gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 5 out of 5 and now plans to read Cogheart by Peter Bunzl.

Ella from Calverley CofE primary school:

I think that this book was okay.It did have fun and exciting parts in it but some parts were boring.I would probably recommend this book to people that love monsters and scary things but personally this wasn't the book for me.

Ella gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 3 out of 5 and now plans to read Cogheart by Peter Bunzl.

Lily from Gildersome primary :

This book wasn't my taste. It was very wordy and complicated,but people who like monster and horror stories might like it.

Lily gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 2 out of 5 and now plans to read A Library of Lemons by Jo Cotterill.

Emily from Otley all saints primary school:

I didn't relly enjoy it but thought the parts when they were talking were better because you got to hear more from the charactors. The thing I really enjoyed was that you could imagine it in your head and really liked the creepy monsters!!

Emily gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 3 out of 5 and now plans to read Invisible Inc. by Steve Cole.

Ewan from Adel Primary:

This book was not my favourite book as it was not my genre. On the other hand, I quite liked the monster before every chapter as the descriptions were very detailed. I would advise you to read this if you're in to horror and mystery books.

Ewan gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 3 out of 5 and now plans to read Murder in Midwinter by Fleur Hitchcock.

Ethan from Adel Primary School:

So far I have found this book intriguing I particularly like the drawings of monsters inside of the book. The funny thing is that he also gets into lots of trouble at school. Another thing to mention is it's not wrong in saying "homework is the least of his problems." I think this is a good book if you like mysteries.

Ethan gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 5 out of 5 and now plans to read Murder in Midwinter by Fleur Hitchcock.

Isobel from Westgate Primary School:

Max comes from a long line of Van Helsings and like his family before him he is a monster hunter. But on his 13th birthday the monsters seem to be hunting him, Max must team up with his friends, Syd and Wing but in the end it will be up to him to save the world from the evil Vendermeer.

I did enjoy this book because it is gripping and action packed but I believe it was more for boys than girls and it was also a bit confusing in some parts. I do think Curtis Jobling wrote a good book with lots of funny bits it was just not for me.

Isobel gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 3 out of 5 and now plans to read Murder in Midwinter by Fleur Hitchcock.

Abigail from Crossley Street Primary School:

I enjoyed this book and I thought it was really exciting.Some of my favourite bits was the monster fact files because I thought they were really interesting. My favourite one was the mummy.I think it was a good idea to put the fact files in and I think they should put more in next time.

Abigail gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 5 out of 5 and now plans to read Beetle Boy by M. G. Leonard.

Noah from Shire Oak Primary School:

I absolutely loved this book. It is by far my favourite book because it is such a exciting book and the Max Helsing bit connects to Van Helsing. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that is aged below 14 years.

Noah gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 5 out of 5 and now plans to read Beetle Boy by M. G. Leonard.

Francesca from Shire Oak:

I liked the tension in this book,I also liked the little fact files that it had about the monsters. My favourite aspect of the book was when Syd and Eightball were getting chased by the mummy's the writer created a lot of suspense. I would recommend this book to ages 10-12.

Francesca gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 4 out of 5 and now plans to read Murder in Midwinter by Fleur Hitchcock.

Sophie from Alwoodley Primary School:

This book was very confusing and some of the sentences didn't make sense. I was very disappointed with the overall quality of the book and I hope to read something​ better next time.

Manya from Allerton C of E Primary:

I rate this book 3 and a half.I liked this book,but it was partially creepy, slightly boring.Max was ALWAYS hunting monsters!However,Curtis Jobling did use some great vocabulary and an amazing sense of humour.

Manya gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 3 out of 5 and now plans to read Beetle Boy by M. G. Leonard.

Anas from Oakwood Primary Academy:

I'm not too much of a fan of this book. First of all, it does have a bit of inappropriate language. Second, I would prefer this book to people who like monsters (not me ;D). Now I've finished all my books, I would love to read Invisible Inc. again.

Zoe gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 4 out of 5 and now plans to read Invisible Inc. by Steve Cole.

Oliver from Churwell Primary School:

This book is very good at creating tension. I also love the humour. Imagining Max in real life is very easy and i love the humour and cheekiness about him. I hope the sequel is just as good and I can't wait to see Max take on Hastur in a final battle.

Oliver gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 5 out of 5 and now plans to read Cogheart by Peter Bunzl.

Maleehah from Shire Oak primary school:

Fatimah from Harehills Primary School:

Fatimah gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 1 out of 5 and now plans to read Beetle Boy by M. G. Leonard.

Jasmine from Allerton C of E Primary:

I enjoyed Max Helsing because there is a lot of action in this story and something exciting is always happening. The reason I gave this book 4 out of 5 is because sometimes it can get slightly boring; he never stops hunting monsters!

Jasmine gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 4 out of 5 and now plans to read Invisible Inc. by Steve Cole.

Hannah from Colton primary school:

This book is a bit boring, because its of the same monsters but I do like the fact files they are in generations and its so cool! This book has some bad language for children I am really not sure about this book . So sad I had good intensions of this book

Hannah gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 2 out of 5 and now plans to read Beetle Boy by M. G. Leonard.

Emma from St Urbans:

I didn't enjoy this book as much as I liked the others. At points of the story it got a bit too gruesome and could of been better. Despite some parts of the book the others were exiting and interesting but I wouldn't recommend this book to people who don't like monsters.

Emma gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 2 out of 5 and now plans to read Murder in Midwinter by Fleur Hitchcock.

DAniel from St.Urbans:

At the beginning of the book I thought it was a but confusing bit as it got nearer to the end it got really exiting and I enjoyed it.My favourite character was eight ball.

DAniel gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 3 out of 5 and now plans to read Beetle Boy by M. G. Leonard.

Caitlin from Beeston Primary:

I really enjoyed reading this because it is full of descriptive writing which helped me with my English. I really enjoyed it in general I love how it's mystery and adventure the type of genres I love to read. I am going to buy this book and the other Max Helsing book as well.

Jalaal gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 5 out of 5 and now plans to read Murder in Midwinter by Fleur Hitchcock.

Maddie from Alwoodley Primary:

Max Helsing is an amazing book in the start of a series. However, it can be complicated at points. I would recommend it at the age of 9+ because, as previously said, the confusing and complicated use of language. I gave it a 4 because of the amazing and sometimes laugh-aloud storyline. I would definitely recommend it for people who enjoy a bit of a challenge.

Maddie gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 4 out of 5 and now plans to read A Library of Lemons by Jo Cotterill.

Maxwell from Colton Primary School:

The book is very complicated because there are loads of characters. The thing I like about the book is that the characters are mythical. I would recommend this book for 10+ because, like I said it is very complicated and because of the language, anyways its a very good book.

Maxwell gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 4 out of 5 and now plans to read Beetle Boy by M. G. Leonard.

Dominic from Southroyd pudsey primary :

Polly from Otley All Saints :

I had mixed feelings about this book. There was parts of it were I was scared and excited but also parts where I was bored and was disappointed at the ending. It wasn't my favourite of this collection of books. The story line was ok but there was some difficult words included. My next book is Invisible Inc which i'm hoping will be easier to read.

Polly gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 3 out of 5 and now plans to read Murder in Midwinter by Fleur Hitchcock.

Aimee from Churwell Primary School:

Max Helsing is a really good book it is all about a boy called Max and he hunts monsters and other evil creatures. The reason for Max starting to monster hunt is because his friend got kidnapped by one of the evil creatures.Max went looking for the monsters and tried to find his friend . This book is action packed and full of amazing imagery.

Sara gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 4 out of 5 and now plans to read Invisible Inc. by Steve Cole.

Amelia from Carlton Primary School:

I think this book is more for boys but i still enjoyed it. It was a mysterious, unpredictable and interesting to read. I also think boys would like this if it came into the cinema.

Amelia gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 4 out of 5 and now plans to read A Library of Lemons by Jo Cotterill.

Jay from Colton primary school :

This book is quite good.the thing that I like about it is that there are profiles about every single monster in the book .

Jay gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 3 out of 5 and now plans to read Murder in Midwinter by Fleur Hitchcock.

Brooke from Shire Oak Primary School:

I gave the book a 3 out of 5 because I didn't like the book. Personally I think the book was too scary for me and it was a lot scarier then the other books that I've read. but if it wasn't that scary I would of loved the book.

Brooke gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 3 out of 5 and now plans to read A Library of Lemons by Jo Cotterill.

Aaisha from Shire Oak Primary School:

This book was not my type because i am not into Monsters.I think this book is for sci-fi people.

Aaisha gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 3 out of 5 and now plans to read Murder in Midwinter by Fleur Hitchcock.

Max from St Urbans:

I really liked this book because the writer played with the words and I think that is very clever. I liked the pictures but they could have been in a different position because when I was in the middle of the sentence I read the facts about the creature but I forget what I read earlier that is why I did not give this book 5 out of 5.

Personally my favourite character was Eightball because he is a monstrous gladiator and he is a savage. I recommend this book to people who like bloodthirsty ghouls, gargoyles and tense adventure. I am looking forward to Curtis` next book Max Helsing and The Beast of Bone Creek.

Sofia from St.Urbans Catholic Primary School:

I did not find this book very interesting at the start, however, I liked the ending as it was more entertaning. But the book's plot wasn't my prefered style of genre.I didn't find the main character (Max) very interesting, as his personality is not shown very much through out the book.

Sofia gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 2 out of 5 and now plans to read Beetle Boy by M. G. Leonard.

Jake from kippax greenfiels primary school:

A real page-turner, lots of twists and turns in this action packed book.

Freya from Pudsey Waterloo Primary School:

I really didn't enjoy this book. The start was too slow and it didn't really start getting exciting until about 3 chapters till the end of the book. The start of the book didn't even relate to the the title or blurb.

I didn't find this book enjoying or gripping. It wasn't really my type of book and i found it boring.

gemma from Pudsey Waterloo:

I liked this book but it took a long time to get into the action so I lost my interest in the book, in the middle because it wasn't getting anywhere. But I would recommend this book to anybody who likes a lot of description.

Esme from Carlton Primary School:

Max Helsing – Monster Hunter

Max Helsing is an adventurous monster hunter who has to destroy the dark wizard Vendiemier or else human-kind will end. But with the help of his friends, Syd, Eightball and Jed it might be possible. My favourite characters are Eightball, Max and Jed. This is a great book for Percy Jackson fans.

Rohan from Southroyd primary school:

I like this book because there is a lot of different monsters and the way it is set out in the setting I like this book please do a sequel

Phoebe from Shire Oak:

I sort of enjoyed this book. I liked all the monsters and the storyline but I did not like the characters especially Max because I thought that he was a bit rude to other people. I would recommend this book to people that like things about monsters and thriller books.

Phoebe gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 3 out of 5 and now plans to read Invisible Inc. by Steve Cole.

Zainab from Harehills Primary School:

The illustrations on the front cover were really interesting and made me curious to what the story was going to be about. At the beginning of the story I understood clearly what was going on but half way through I kind of lost track on what was happening.

Esme from Calverley C of E:

I thought this book was very good and I would love to read the sequel.Every part in it was exciting and I just couldn't put it down.I didn't think it was going to be my favourite as it didn't look my type of book but as soon as I got into it, I found it gripping and enjoyable.It had a lot of action in it and I also loved the characters and their personalities.The book had a quite a lot of humour in and the first chapter got me trapped in the story's amazing plot.Overall I thought it was a great and I would read again.

Anna from Rawdon st Peters:

I love this book its a real gripper and I don't know why someone wouldn't like it.It's very exiting and it's very hard to put down.

I suggest this book to people who like an adventure.

I rate this book 4 and a half .

Rhona from Rawdon St. Peter's:

I found this book a little bit confusing for quite a while and it had a lot of difficult words that I couldn't understand.At the end of the book it eventually made sense but not before then.Although it was not my type of book, it would definitely appeal to readers that like monsters and weird creatures. I am giving this book a three because I enjoyed it but I personally wouldn't read it again.

Rhona gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 3 out of 5 and now plans to read Cogheart by Peter Bunzl.

Kate from Alwoodley Primary School :

I liked this book because it had a very good story line. I also liked how the characters had a bit of a history to them to give them a unique personality and it's also interesting. However I didnt like how the book was quite hard to understand and the fact that it didn't really flow like a story should do, so I found it

rather confusing to read.

Kate gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 4 out of 5 and now plans to read A Library of Lemons by Jo Cotterill.

Jasmine from Alwoodley Primary School:

I found Max Helsing a challenging book to read. I couldn't really understand the story until about halfway up and then I just managed to get the grip of it. It was a book with a lot of vocabulary and the illustrations did help me picture better.

Jasmine gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 3 out of 5 and now plans to read A Library of Lemons by Jo Cotterill.

Jaleel from Holy Rosary & St Annes :

I found it really difficult to start this book because there was some difficult language to understand. However, when I got about halfway through, I started to like it and the language became a little easier. I recommend that you read this book, but that you persevere until you get to the good part.

Keira from Beeston Primary:

This book is a spine-chilling book filled with mystery,drama and suspense. My favourite character was Wing, especially in chapter 21-24 as he added a lot of humour to the book. Although this was a very gripping book from the middle, I found that around the beginning (more specifically chapter 4)I lost interest in the book, but I then gained interest in the book. Now I have read this one I cant wait to get my hands on Max Helsing and the Beast of bone-creek!!

Keira gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 4 out of 5 and now plans to read Invisible Inc. by Steve Cole.

Caitlin from Beeston Primary School:

I think that this is a spine-chilling, mystery book. I like this book, because each chapter contains lots of drama and suspense. The front cover caught my eye, so I chose this book. This book captivated me and made me want to read more. The author of this book knows how to get somebody hooked to it. Some of the chapters are very confusing and I couldn't understand what was going on, but I ended up understanding what was happening.

Caitlin gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 4 out of 5 and now plans to read Invisible Inc. by Steve Cole.

Max from Alwoodley Primary School:

I think Max Helsing is a very good book because it has a lot of action. The bad point about this book is that it is hard -sometimes- to concentrate because there are a lot of things going on at once. Overall, Max Helsing is a great book but could be improved (like most books) I can't wait to read Curtis' next Max Helsing book (Max Helsing and the beast of bone creak)

Max gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 4 out of 5 and now plans to read Invisible Inc. by Steve Cole.

Marco from Alwoodley Primary School:

I thoroughly enjoyed this book but you probably wouldn't like it if you don't like difficult things like blue cheese (I think) or people you don't understand. Still, it is absolutely fantastic and and gory, which isn't too good if you wouldn't like that but I think it's ace. The pictures help you understand the image of the monsters and give extra info. Max's comments are hilarious! If you persevere with the difficult start, you will be rewarded with magic! I would recommend it to people of eleven years or over. It helps me get over the thought of failing my Sats, knowing that someone else is in a struggle too. I LOVE IT!!! Well done Curtis Jobling!

Elizabeth from Carlton Primary School:

Max Helsing Monster Hunter is a book with twists and turns along the way through Gallows Hill. The emotions and speech is as real as the stories of a Vampire its self and the book’s story line is like a rollercoaster in Blackpool Pleasure Beach but I had a few breakdowns (I didn't understand a few sentences)and had to read a few sentences more than twice because of the way the sentence were assembled. I would give it a 3 out of 5 because of the way the sentences were constructed.

Elizabeth gave Max Helsing, Monster Hunter 3 out of 5 and now plans to read Invisible Inc. by Steve Cole.

Connor from Carlton Primary School:

I gave this book 4 because I had a lot of breakdowns (I couldn't work out what was happening in the book at some points) throughout the book but overall the book deserved a 5. Sorry Curtis! I love the illustrations in this book. My favourite character was Max because he feels very passionate about his hobbies and the things he likes. There were cliffhangers round every corner and that was worth 1 star on it's own.

Isabel from Shire Oak Primary School:

I rated this book 5 stars because of how awesome it was!!! It was a great book about a cheeky and sarcastic boy named Max. He is looked after by a old man called Jed that serves him the same thing every day eggs and his specialty stew that Max hates. He lives in a normal town in a normal flat but he's not a normal boy! He's actually a trainee monster hunter in disguise. When he gets a creepy dog called Eight ball everything changes...

I would recommend this book to older readers that like an adventure.I think there are no faults in this book so it is one of my favorites . Who wouldn't want to read a book about a boy cursed by an ancient vampire?

Max Helsing, Monster Hunt is a good book. At the start I wasn't that into it but as I got through it I started to like it more because it got more interesting.At the start it was bad but it gets better.I would give it 4 and a half stars. The characters are Max,Syd,Jed.

Max Helsing monster hunter is a nail biting thriller book which you won’t want to put down. This story is based on a boy called Max Helsing and on the day of his thirteenth birthday every monster in his town is coming to hunt him.

I enjoyed it a lot. However it had a bit too much description and I am positive that I had the wrong image about somethings because further on I kind of got lost about the characters. I would have liked the fact files last, in order of the date of writing. Despite all this I liked the fact that it was for anyone who was a Percy Jackson fan. This meant that people enjoyed it like they would for another book.

Jack from Thorner C of E Primary School:

Kyrah-Sherisse from St Benedicts:

I rated the book a 4 because at the beginning I found the book a bit fast paced for me as a reader. Another reason is that there are some swear words in the book an example is on page 186. This book is filled with mystery and cliff hangers. One of the things I thought was a really good idea to have in the book was the fact that some of the pages were designed to look like ripped out pages from some kind of monster fact file. All in all it was an amazing book and the only thing wrong with it was the fact that you couldn't put it down! Thank you Curtis Jobling

Millie from Green Lane Primary Academy:

As I turned the first few pages, I was hooked. My favourite character was Eightball. He is a bloodthirsty gladiator, has a highlighted sense of smell and is colossal. The book is all about a young boy named Max Van Hesling and he has just turned 13, a teenager, and monsters are haunting him. The monsters are bloodcurdling, intense creatures but out of nowhere, Max has to face his ancestors' most feared enemy. Suddenly, Jed and Wing Lui goes missing and Max's only clue is a letter.

I would recommend this book to anybody that likes adventures and horror. If you are not afraid of monsters and adore horror, this book is surely for you. The rated age is 9+. I loved this book and I'm 100% you will too!!!!
