Review: The Jumble Sale
Zadi is part zombie, part fairy with a little bit of robot, which makes her a misfit monster. She lives with other misfit monsters, with their quirky parts in their makeshift town. They survive by hunting at the nearby hunting grounds taking items discarded by humans and making them into something useful. Hunting is risky because they could be captured by humans. Zadi is an excellent hunter and maker, but now she’s finding it difficult.
Something unusual has happened. There have been no new deliveries to the hunting grounds. This means there are no new items which can be used to recycle into something useful, and they are beginning to worry and fight with each other.
Can Zadi come up with a plan which will help the misfit monsters and bring them together as a community?
Enter the world of the misfit monsters, their quirky lives, and be part of their fun and adventures.
When I started this charming children's novel, I was confused by all the misfits. I felt like I needed to understand all the different characters, their makeup and why that would matter. I was massively overthinking everything.
The story was adorable once I relaxed enough to let the story unfold. The author has an ability to create quirky personalities that are relatable enough for children and adults. The humor was very appealing while the plot had enough depth to keep my interest throughout. I didn't have time to read this one aloud to my children, but I think it would work well. My 5th grade daughter was very interested in the artwork and eager for me to finish so she could start it for herself!
