Editorial Reviews

Review

Cutest children's book ever!

I read a lot. Every day I read a lot, and out of every children's book I have seen...well, ever...this is hands down the best of the best. My kids fell completely in love with this book from the very first page. The pictures are great and the story is even better. I have bought a lot of kids books for the kindle in the last year and been disappointed with a number of them because the story was too short or too long or the pictures looked lousy on the kindle, but this one was perfect. The story was just long enough to keep the kinds entertained without them getting bored. The end of this book was a surprise even to the adults in the house and made all of us smile. The kids insisted that we keep this one and read it again. If you have kids, I highly recommend downloading this wonderful book! - Ionia Martin "Ionia"

From the Author

When Rachel and Eric were young, we had this routine where after they got ready for bed, I would pretend to be one of the characters from their favorite television show. We would make up adventures and imagine different stories to play out. One of the games they liked most was "Monster". I'd chase after them snarling and growling, and they would run screaming and giggling around the room. They loved it. Eventually, my kids grew up but we still look back on those times with fond memories. That's where the inspiration for Playtime with Monsters came from.

We hope you have as much fun reading our books as we had writing them.

5.0 out of 5 stars As easy to enjoy for adults as for children January 31, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very fun, well drawn, and colorful book with a main character right at the perfect age to himself hear the story told and marvel gleefully at its illustrations. Young children will have no trouble identifying with the eager, earnest, and just the littlest bit pesky main character. Nighttime blues and violets set the bedtime mood for a quick and upbeat romp into the imagination. The little boy's expressions of surprise, anticipation, and delight are likely to get a grin out of both children and adults, and the surprise ending is wonderful.

There is just a bit of word usage that may challenge the littlest ones and prompt questions in a good way. Instead of merely saying words and using "said" to show that they did so, characters "beamed," "replied," and "exclaimed" their dialogue here and there. That may be enough to prompt a question eventually, but kids will probably intuit the meanings of those words as the story is read without feeling it was disrupted. If kids are curious as to exactly what those words mean, good for them and, as a parent, good for you for having the opportunity to introduce some words a very young child may not be used to using or hearing. The word usage is otherwise simple and always charming.

Highly recommended. This is a book that's both gentle and sweet without being cloying or didactic. Very easy to enjoy and highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Bedtime story September 6, 2012
By Shell
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a great bedtime story. I think I enjoyed reading it as much as my son enjoyed hearing it. My son enjoys a lot of different monster stories and this one is perfect to read to him at night. If you have a son who loves monsters as much as mine, then you should get this book.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was going to wait till the Halloween season to review this book but I could simply not resist spreading my enthusiasm for this book any longer. Superb artwork (most especially the expressions in the boy's face) and an ending that just floored me. I wish all children's book left this much of an impact on me!
