Hi, wonderful librarians!

Goblin Mafia Wars hits bookstores Australia-wide this April. Yay! The second book in my City of Monsters trilogy is published by Ford Street and distributed by Alliance. I’m... happy to do signings or send you free posters!

Here are a few glowing reviews for Book 1, Monster School (also still available):

‘A wild, wise-cracking ride. I loved it.’ – Ian Irvine.

‘I fell in love with the wonderful cast of monster characters. This is one book I wish I'd written … a classic.’ – Robyn Parnell, Goodreads.

‘A monster mash of hilariously epic proportions… Readers, young and old, will recognise many students/young people, with whom they have interacted and relish the humour and innate sense of justice expressed through the characters and their actions. This one will be a real winner with both boys and girls. The characters are endearing, despite their monstrous attributes and the reader becomes fully engaged with the whole adventure – and who can resist a fully grown dragon? Magnificent, dangerous and wise, Kalthazari completely dominates the climax. Highly recommended for capable readers from 10+.’ – Sue Warren, teacher-librarian.

‘Fast moving, exciting and drops information at just the right rate... Altogether, great fun, with the usual DCG mix of big-hearted weirdness.’ – Sally Odgers.

‘A mind blowing adventure with twists and turns of all kinds. Kids of all ages will enjoy this fantastic book.’ – Liam, aged 11.

‘It's a perfect choice for Hallowe'en or anytime you want a chapter book that not only grabs kids' interest with a cold, skeletal hand, but also holds promise of more books to come. With vampire mosquitos and man-eating birds, giant spiders named Bruce and an ancient dragon, Kalthazari, it's a wild, wild ride.’ – Susan Stephenson, thebookchook.

‘Jam-packed with action and adventure… From the first to the last page you'll be hooked in and barracking for PT and the Dead Gang.’ – Matt Porter, Goodreads.

‘DC Green has a truly frightening imagination… Wrapped up in grossness and humour, Monster School is a story about acceptance, tolerance and how the little people can make a difference. Hilarious and disgusting, middle-school readers will love it!’ – Claire Saxby, Aussie Reviews.

‘Set in a futuristic world where goblins rule, monsters of all kinds abound and humans are endangered, this series will be greatly enjoyed by readers from about 10 years (and their teachers and parents!). The story is fast paced, richly detailed, disgusting and funny in equal measure and there are some excellent messages about acceptance and tolerance carefully woven throughout. Enjoy! – Children’s Book Daily.

‘DC Green has created a wonderful (and a little grisly) fantasy world where humans are the endangered species. Monster School is humorous, full of twists and turns and overall the pace is slick. Importance of friendships and loyalty, acceptance and tolerance, and seeking justice, weaves its way through the action. I enjoyed Book 1 and am begging for more. Monster School won two pre-publication awards and is sure to be a winner especially with middle-school age children.’ – Helen Ross.

‘A rollicking read, filled with snappy dialogue and wonderfully witty characters that illustrator, Danny Willis, has captured to a ‘T’.’ – Jenny Mounfield, Amazon.

‘Monster School is a wildly imaginative story that is rippling with adventure, humour, blood and guts and the most barbaric line up of intriguing characters you’ll ever meet. DC Green has carved a fierce world that is sure to keep even the most reluctant reader engrossed. With interesting language, every monster you can imagine and some woven themes of friendship, trust and honour – Monster School is definitely gloriously grotesque.’ – Francine Sculli, Buzz Words.

"From early childhood, we are taught that we must succeed at all costs... kindness is the engine that drives us to keep trying even after we fall flat on our face."

Research shows that kindness toward oneself, or self-compassion, could improve motivation.
