Zorgamazoo: 09/14/14

cover art

Zorgamazoo by Robert Paul Weston is the tale of an unlikely friendship between a runaway and monster who works for a newspaper. Monty, the reporter, is the son of a once great hero, but now his father is ill and in hospice. So when the Zorgles go missing, the only one left to save the day is the very reluctant Monty.

The entire adventure is told in verse. It takes a page or two to get used to the meter. After that, things fall into place and the reader will be swept into Monty and Katrina's adventures. Their friendship is similar to Helena's and Valentine's from MirrorMask (2005) or Sarah and Hoggle in Labyrinth (1986).

The quest that Katrina and Monty take is delightfully illustrated, bringing to mind Fortunately the Milk by Neil Gaiman or Michael Ende's Neverending Story with a touch of The Adventure of Baron Munchausen (1986).

Five stars
