I'm not really sure what to make of this book. I loved Laura Numeroff's If You Give A ... series, but this one didn't delight as much - with me or with my one-child audience. I'm not really quite sure that children, even on the older end, will get the spoof. And some parts I just didn't find all that funny. Example: "Step 9. Grooming your monster. Get your monster used to brushing his teeth. This won't be easy. Give your monster a bubble bath every month." Huh? That's not anywhere near as clever as Ms. Numeroff's prose in the If You Give A... series of books. Even the child I was babysitting was asking me why after that one, and I'm sorry to say I didn't have much of an explanation. I had thought this title would be fun, but I was disappointed to find that it fell short of expectations.
Very cute! My five year old sister got this book from the library, and loved it. A good book to read during October (Halloween) to a child. I need to go to the store and buy it!
I bought this story for my three year old son who was very afraid of monsters. Now he knows monsters don't have to be scary! He loves this book. The pictrues in this story are fabulous.
