Publisher's Description

Some Friends Are Just Worth Making

For Howard Boward, science genius, making friends in middle school is hard. The other kids have more fun creatively expanding Howard’s name than actually hanging out, as in How-weird or How-Lame. . So, why not actually make a friend? A little wonder putty, some DNA, a few accidentally spilled chemicals and—boom!—instant friend. Monster friend, that is. Franklin ends up being cool in middle school, and he helps Howard climb the uber-popular ladder, becoming How-Cool.  But the new fame and friendship isn’t exactly everything Howard hoped. Turns out real friendship might not be so simple, even when you create your own friends from scratch.

    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.
