Our grandson just LOVED this book - especially the illustrations. Mercer Mayer has always been a favorite in our family and its so great to find them again. Our son is passing on the tradition with Jack. Little boys love the antics and pictures in Mercer Mayer's books. (Liza Lou is a good one for little girls.) Little Critter books are also great for both. There is also a nice little biography on the authorgiven on the product pages. By the way, this seller did a fantastic job of packaging and being on time. Thank you.
Love it......... the children I read this too once again just sat there engrossed. They looked for monsters, they could see monsters everywhere, even if there were no monsters on the page they could smell them. They followed the young boy in the story, they could relate to his fear. By the end of the story they were smiling, they knew that the boy had grown stronger, confident and more powerful. By putting the power in the hands of the children, they learn to cope with their fears. I recommend these stories to every child who's afraid of the dark. They will help you to confront your fears and learn from them.
My son fears monsters so we got this book. To kids, these monsters are very real no matter what we tell them so that makes this a great story from the child's point of view. He never really sees them, but he "knows" they're there. He learns karate and feels more confident, and the monsters go away. My son loved it, related to it, and felt more confident himself after reading it and discovering that monsters CAN be scared away. He even sleeps in his own bed now!
Mercer mayer is a favorite of mine, and thanks to amazon, I now own both the little critter and little monster complete series. My husband liked this book as a kid so we found it here too. My kids love it, very fun book, and I love his illustrations as much as I did when I was a kid.
