The Jumble Sale

Zadi is part zombie, part fairy with a little bit of robot, which makes her a misfit monster. She lives with other misfit monsters, with their quirky parts in their makeshift town. They survive by hunting at the nearby hunting grounds taking items discarded by humans and making them into something useful. Hunting is risky because they could be captured by humans. Zadi is an excellent hunter and maker, but now she’s finding it difficult.

Something unusual has happened. There have been no new deliveries to the hunting grounds. This means there are no new items which can be used to recycle into something useful, and they are beginning to worry and fight with each other.

Can Zadi come up with a plan which will help the misfit monsters and bring them together as a community?

Enter the world of the misfit monsters, their quirky lives, and be part of their fun and adventures.

My Review
The Jumble Sale is an interesting middle-grade fantasy novel that will appeal to both male and female readers between the ages of...I'd say 9 and 13.  Adults can enjoy the story as well.
The book follows Zadi, a robot zombie fairy, as she works together with the other misfit monsters in her town to make her jumble sale a success. 
What is a jumble sale, you may ask. It's like a yard sale, but instead of one person selling to a bunch of other people, the monsters get together and bring one item they've created to trade for someone else's item. 
I found the story to be endearing and cute. The monsters were all unique mash-ups, which was fun. And they all had their own unique personality as well. 
I also enjoyed the lessons that were taught in the story. Kids may or may not pick up on them, but adults definitely will. Learning to share. Learning to work together. Learning to compromise. Those are just a few of the things the misfit monsters discover how to do within the pages of this book.
There were a few times the story did get a bit repetitive, and it sort of bogged it down for me. But other than that, it was a really good read. 
I'd recommend it to tweens, teens, and even adults. And I'm sure younger kids would get a kick of out the story as well if their parent(s) read it to them. 
3.5 stars from me.
