A father-son monster hunter duo must save the Bay Area from an evil villain inThe Monster Catchers, a madcap middle-grade fantasy debut from George Brewington.

If there's something strange in the neighborhood, who you gonna call? Buckleby and Son!
Whether it's a goblin in the garden or a fairy in the attic, Bailey Buckleby and his dad can rid your home of whatever monster is troubling you—for the right price. But when Bailey discovers that his dad has been lying—their pet troll Henry is actually a kidnapped baby sea giant—he begins to question the family business. Enter Axel Pazuzu, criminal mastermind, who will stop at nothing to make a buck. With everyone and everything he loves in peril, it's up to Bailey to save his family and set things right in this funny, fantastical adventure.

"A fast-paced, action-packed adventure with an interesting premise" —Booklist onThe Monster Catchers

"The monsters are appealing, the parallels between monster and human history are discussable, and the end is wildly unsubtle but still gratifying, allowing Bailey to look forward to a more tolerant and altruistic exploration of the world of monsters." —The BulletinonThe Monster Catchers
