Author Terry Caszatt’s Brass Monkeys fills a void in the book market for kids 9 and up- it has a page-turner plot and strong message, yet it’s smarter than much of the content that greets our kids at the library these days. Terry particularly wanted to write a book boys and girls would equally like. Read his post about his inspiration behind writing it
“Bumbling, cowardly Eugene is forced to transfer to a new school in northern Michigan – in the middle of the year, and in the middle of a blizzard. Eugene is used to weird things happening in his life, but this feels really bad. He has no idea how bad it’s going to get until he meets his English teacher, “Ming ther Merciless.” To save his classmates from a fatal graduation from Ming’s School of the Brass Monkeys, Eugene must deliver an unfinished book to a legendary teacher named McGinty, who is hiding in the underworld. With the help of some renegade teachers and his new friends, he begins an epic journey to find McGinty. Will Eugene survive the Cliffs of Notes and the Sea of Hot Lunches?”
