    1. It's nice to read a middlegrade that's not overrun with poo and fart jokes. I mean, there is a fart joke, but just the one. And it actually has a place in the story. So yeah.Nelson accidentally extracts the 7 Deadly Sins from his soul with a machine made by Christopher Wren in St Paul's Cathedral. A little history there for the kids. And even though this is about the sins, and of course each one is the epitome of Gluttony, Wrath, Pride and all the rest, they're still friendly, and nice, and fun. [...]



    2. Alright, I'll admit it. I'm often drawn to a book because of its cover. There's nothing wrong with that. Why else would they hire people to make them attractive and spend so much time designing them to be eye-catching? And then there's the blurb on the back of the book. These can range from evocative, cringeworthy, perplexing, or in some cases spoiler-y. Even after reading the back of the book jacket of today's book and seeing the title and looking at the cover image I was still surprised to dis [...]


    3. A great rollicking story! Kids will love this hilarious adventure of a boy and his unpredictable, crazy, weird monster friends. And that's what they are, friends. They begin as a bother, a necessary nuisance for finding his sister, but grow into something more. Since the seven monsters are all part of his soul and miss his sister passionately, they feel a pull towards wherever she is like a compass where his sister is the North. Unfortunately, where she is is halfway around the world! How can an [...]


    4. The story of Nelson and how he comes about having his very own seven monsters, The Deadly Seven, feels like something Dan Brown, author of The Da Vinci Code, would write if he wrote a MG novel. Nelson's monsters, are the seven deadly sins mentioned in the Bible, which were accidentally extracted from Nelson's soul when he falls over a contraption created by Sir Christopher Wren in his secret laboratory hidden in St. Paul's Cathedral. These monsters are not as scary as their backstory might have [...]


    5. When I go book shopping, I mostly know what I'm going to buy before I step into the shop. Not because I am a control freak with a tendency to meticulous planning (who, me?), but because I pretty much know what the new releases are already. That's why I like it when my boyfriend comes along. He'll disappear into the children's section for a few minutes and then return brandishing books about evil mastermind cats, pirates that moonlight as ballet dancers, or - as in this case - seven little monste [...]


    6. "The Deadly 7" is a book of two halves. The first half introduces all the characters and ideas that are essential to the very fast-paced, exciting and adventurous second-half of the book.The ideas in this book are multiple. There is the "lost chamber of St Paul's", a hidden room that main character Nelson Green finds within St Paul's Cathedral where Christopher Wren has stored many of his as-yet-undiscovered inventions, one of which Nelson accidentally ends up using when he creates the Deadly 7 [...]


    7. Really brings back that old-vibe style. The cover is quite what hooks readers into the book, nothing special, just something to entertain yourself while you are in the bathroom or something like that.


    8. [Guest Blogger]My son, Joshua!! Hello! My name is Joshua and my mom is the owner of this website. Since I am homeschooled, I have to read a lot. A lot.

Uncle Pogo is a plumber and is working on fixing a leak at St. Paul's cathedral and he enlists Nelson to help him.

    15. This is such an amazing book for young readers. Seriously. I kind of wish I had kids to give this to, because it's perfect. It has monsters. It was a garden of Eden. It has comedy. It has a lot of heart. It has a love of family. So many great aspects all tied together to create a very fun and clever novel. I love Uncle Pogo. I love that there's a family fairytale. I love that Nelson and Celeste had a great sibling relationship. I love that the seven deadly sins are represented as monsters, becau [...]


    16. I won this book in a contest. I thought this was a really cute chapter book. The chapters were an easy length for quick reading and the story as a whole was interesting, fun and sometimes even funny. I feel like the ending was a little open ended so I wonder if there will be a follow up to this book. Even with the open nature of the ending, the story as a whole felt complete and fulfilling to read. I actually can't wait until my kids are old enough to read this story, I feel they will get a kic [...]


    17. This novel is geared to children but enjoyed the read. Like anything that brings laughter. This is Nelson's tale of the abduction of his sister and his hunt to find her. Nelson is only 11 years old and lefy in the care of his nutty uncle. He and uncle come upon an ancient lab in a church and the deadly 7 are unleashed. They are drawn to Nelson as he is the unleasher and proceed to help him find lost sister, Celeste. Of course, these are the 7 deadly sins and come in very handy in Nelson's search [...]


    18. A fantastic children's book full of adventure, quirky happenings and even quirkier characters. This tale follows Nelson and his seven deadly sins as they go in search of his missing (presumed dead) older half sister. It deals sensitively with the feelings of the 11 year old protagonist and the sins are presented in an interesting yet seemingly accurate way (if you can imagine sins being presented as strange little monsters). I originally bought this for my 10 year old nephew but liked the look o [...]


    19. This was a free Good Reads giveaway book that I totally loved. It is intended for young readers but I enjoyed the drawings, the action, the fantasy and like me, an adult can really enjoy this as well. Nelson is a boy without friends, but his sister goes missing and is feared dead on her school trip. Nelson finds a secret chamber in a huge London cathedral, while his crazy Uncle Pogo tries to fix a massive roof leak. After that, weird and wacky monsters appear. They help young Nelson with his que [...]


    20. If you are 9-12 years old or young at heart this is a great read. Rapid storyline tumbles and trips you along a great adventure. Nelson's sister has disappeared abroad and his parents leave him with Uncle Pogo who is ' nuttier than squirrel pop' Discovering an old machine made by Christopher WREN Nelson unwittingly extracts 7 monsters who are hellbent on finding Celeste, his sister. Travel with them as they leave a path of mayhem in their search. For fans of The Map To Everywhere and Percy Jacks [...]


    21. My students are somewhat interested in monsters, and I thought that they would be the next big trend, but there aren't that many books about monsters. Apparently, there are only monsters in the UK, where this book is set. Unfortunately, it was a bit too British and quirky, and I don't think it would go over well with my students. I kind of liked it, and it did have some pictures in it, but there was a lot of background knowledge that is necessary for this to make sense, and I fear my students la [...]


    22. Hilarious, manic, well-written fun. Here's a taste--"Though Nelson couldn't see the dog, he could tell that this was the bark of an animal would enjoy chewing your shoes to shreds, preferably while you were still wearing them."THE DEADLY 7 is a speedy, clever, and seriously trippy story for readers of all ages.


    23. This rating is based on my 10 year old son's reaction to the book. He seemed to never be able to put it down and spoke of it enthusiastically. He complained a bit that it took too long for the monsters to appear but once they did he was off to the races!


    24. Nelson's best friend is kidnapped. It is up to Nelson and his new friends (really monsters) to find his best friend (his sister) before it is too late. A little slow in the beginning but it picks up.


    25. This book was a fun read! I especially loved the pictures with the clever captions. This book is geared for a younger crowd but I believe all ages will enjoy this fast pace book.I was so glad to win this from giveaways!



    26. 3.5/5This was a cute, fun middle grade novel, not overrun with immaturity that has morals while also being a book for kids to enjoy.


    27. I received this book as part of a giveway.A very nicely written children's book, suitable for ages 8-12 I would say.
