Geraldine McCaughrean's "Monacello: Anything but Perfect" Available Online

By Lucian

As a fan of Southern Italian folklore, and an avid promoter of our people's traditions and culture, it was no surprise that I fell in love with Geraldine McCaughrean's children's series about Monacello, based on one of the most popular spirits of Naples.

Unfortunately, due to the current state of the book industry, the third installment in the series will not be published. We were very disappointed, as we posted reviews of the first two books and were looking forward to the third. However, Ms. McCaughren has not let us down!

She is generously providing the latest book on-line free of charge.

We wanted to thank her and spread the word. Below is a letter from her website explaining how to access it. 
A solution to the mystery of Monacello 3 
I am very sorry to say that it has been decided not to go ahead with the publication of the final part of the Monacello trilogy (That's how the book industry is right now, I'm afraid.) I feel really badly towards readers who, having bought the first two books, have been left hanging. 
So I have decided to PUBLISH PART THREE, Monacello: Anything but Perfect, RIGHT HERE, ON THE WEBSITE. 
In due course, I am hoping all three books can published in one satisfying volume for people coming to the story for the first time. But for those of you who have already embarked on Monacello's search for his roots, the concluding adventure of the 'Little Monk' will be available here, free of charge, NOW! 
Just go to the Books logo, Book of the Moment and click on Monacello: Anything but Perfect.
