Publisher's Description

Howard Boward, a 13-year-old boy-genius with a chip on his shoulder is too smart for his own good. He has troubles making friends—possibly because he complains so much. Until one day a science experiment goes haywire, and Howard creates a best friend for himself—Franklin—who also  happens to be a monster. Creating Franklin was an accident, not like Howard was playing God or anything—or so Howard tells himself. Franklin and Howard are having so much fun, Howard decides to create more “friends,” using DNA from kids at school. Only, these friends aren’t quite as friendly. Soon there’s a major mess and Howard has to sort it all out before the monsters destroy their human counterparts. But terminating the monsters proves harder than he imagined. They didn’t choose to be monsters; they can’t go against their innate nature. Howard finds himself facing consequences for playing God. Getting rid of the monsters means learning to tame his own inner beast, and Howard begins to understand the meaning of free will and true friendship

    This review was written for How to Make Friends and Monsters, Hardcover.
    From the author of Arnold Caught a Bug, comes Ron Bates new book "How to make friends and Monsters" (a play on the title 'How to make friends and influence people.')

    This is not a "how to" as the title describes, but rather this is a fictional work. This is the story of a young boy named Howard who is the target of a lot of bullying in school. And since Howard has no friends - he decides to "make a friend" named "Franklin" (an obvious nod to Frankenstein's Monster)

    The story takes you through the choices Howard makes with his real and not-so-real friends and in the end is a tale of how to "be a good friend."

    Bates writes well for this young audience (9-12 years) and is skillfully funny. This is a delightful book for young readers that carries a strong moral lesson with overtones of Christianity.

    Thank you to Zondervan & Zonderkidz for this advanced copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.
