This book is very, very funny. The words build you up to think a monster is coming to get you – step by step. But the pictures are so funny and the monster so silly looking no child is ‘really scared’ at all. The pictures are very cute and so well done they make you actually quite like the monster! But still, there is a build up, and when the monster finally ends his journey to your bedroom it is a relief when what he really wants to do isn’t to eat you but to … no, I won’t spoil it!
A great book but BEWARE it is effective, I wouldn’t read it the first time to a nervous child before bed!
