Scarlett Hart: Monster Hunter Reviews

  • Kim

    I thoroughly enjoyed this middle-grade graphic novel. It sets the stage for some fun adventures for Scarlett and Napoleon in future books. Scarlett is a worthy heroine and up to the challenge of monster hunting. Recommended for anyone who enjoys a good adventure story and plenty of monsters - of all kinds.

    Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher First Second for providing an early copy of this book for an honest review.

    I really enjoyed this one. I read it in one sitting.

    Really, the only thing that would make it better is more background. More background on the world filled with monsters. More background on the characters. I don’t even know the main character that well. However, I loved her. Young girl fighting monsters, despite fears, underage laws, and bad guys? Yes, I’m in.

    On the other hand, it felt like I was kinda reading a comic book, versus a graphic novel. A comic book actually designed for girls. Sca

    On the other hand, it felt like I was kinda reading a comic book, versus a graphic novel. A comic book actually designed for girls. Scarlett was a young Bruce Wayne, for sure. She even had her Alfred. And I guess comic books get background within many installments -not all in the beginning. I hope this gets more installments.

    It was just so much fun watching Scarlett take down monsters.

    The premise to this Graphic Novel was good, the first few pages introducing Scarlett, her sidekick, her profession, and her archrival were good. Then the storyline got clunky. To me it felt like a young Sherlock Holmes got mashed up with a Victorian Lara Croft.

    Still, I can imagine that kids will like it.

    This review is based on a NetGalley ARC.

    This strikes me as a fun read, and possibly series, for younger (probably middle school) readers.

    This was a fun, thrilling adventure story following a rambunctious young heroine, Scarlett Hart, who is determined to be the next best monster hunter and honor her parents' legacy. But her nemesis doggedly tries to deter her at every chance he gets.

    While I enjoyed the characters, especially Scarlett and her firm persistence (which was reminiscent of

    ), I was not super impressed by the plot of this graphic novel. The story felt a bit generic. The individual monster huntings felt like small pieces of an episode, but there was not as much of an overarching direction, other than the motivation of mere survival.

    I think the visual format worked well for this story and made it all more exciting!

    Even though I found some elements were lacking, I believe it will be entertaining and fitting for middle grade adventure story lovers.

    What caught my attention about Scarlett Hart: Monster Hunter were the names of the author and illustrator. Both I've heard of so I decided to give this graphic novel a try. Besides, who doesn't fancy a little monster hunting action? ;)

    I enjoyed the illustrations but the storyline felt disjointed at times. I sometimes found myself struggling to connect how one panel jumped to the next. The transitions just didn't feel very smooth. This ties together with some confusion regarding the story. Though

    I enjoyed the illustrations but the storyline felt disjointed at times. I sometimes found myself struggling to connect how one panel jumped to the next. The transitions just didn't feel very smooth. This ties together with some confusion regarding the story. Though the synopsis gives it away I expected some background to Scarlett's present condition and about the monster hunting practice. You don't really get a good sense until further into the book.

    Despite her young age, Scarlett was brave and tackled monsters without hesitations. She may have been a little headstrong but she always had her trusty and loyal butler and housekeeper to keep an eye on things and to encourage her. While the villain was a fellow monster hunter I was happy to see Scarlett had some allies in other monster hunters. It was exciting and satisfying to see them fighting side by side.

    I don't love monsters but I really like the way Thomas Taylor illustrated each of Scarlett's monster encounters. They were scary but not overly gross that you'd want to toss the book far away. Thy were all familiar and easily identifiable.

    Scarlett Hart: Monster Hunter is definitely just the beginning. I can tell there will be much more adventures to be had and I look forward to what other monstrosities and brilliant gadgets this author/illustrator duo will come up with!

    2.5 stars. While I enjoyed the premise of this graphic novel and thought the artwork was fun, ultimately it didn't grab me as much as I wanted it to. The story line and dialogue often felt a little clunky and existed in this weird space of sometimes too cheeky or too dark. It was like the story couldn't decide on what type of mood it wanted to portray. That being said, I think my students will enjoy it, especially if it is the beginning of a Scarlett Hart monster fighting series.

    Marcus Sedgwick a Printz award winning YA novelist takes her turn at a children's graphic novel. Scarlett a monster hunter for T.R.A.P.E.Z.E.

She's too young to be hunting monster, according to the law, and her nemesis Count Stankovic always seems to get there before she does. A steampunkish adventure story well illustrated by Thomas Taylor. My one issue with the book was that the dialogue seemed a bit stilted, like a Geronimo Stilton or Scooby Doo story, which are geared more for 2-3rd graders, but this book's target audience is middle grade readers (4-8th grade), so older readers might want something more engaging.

    I just really did not like the art, I couldn't focus on the story because the art style was so distracting.
