I really love all the books that Disney Books (that’s Disney’s publication company now) have been pushing out. They have a wide variety and this one is really a great one for kids that like a little disgusting in their lives. My daughter has always been a little on the edge of what is “appropriate”. I mean, completely kid friendly and all but really she is great at disgusting mom out. So The Mortification of Fovea Munson makes for an excellent read for this tween.
I also just have to take a moment to mention just how much I LOVE having her read in the car. It keeps the two of them from fighting.
About the Book
Fovea Munson is nobody’s Igor.
True, her parents own a cadaver lab where they perform surgeries on dead bodies. And yes, that makes her gross by association, at least according to everyone in seventh grade. And sure, Fovea’s stuck working at the lab now that her summer camp plans have fallen through. But she is by no means Dr. Frankenstein’s snuffling assistant! That is, until three disembodied heads, left to thaw in the wet lab, start talking. To her. Out loud. What seems like a nightmare, or bizarre hallucination, is not. Fovea is somebody’s Igor, all right. Three somebodies, actually. And they need a favor.
With a madcap sense of humor and a lot of heart (not to mention other body parts), this is a story about finding oneself, finding one’s friends, and embracing the moment.
