Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2–Bedtime rituals, monster-style. In the tub, Little Monster scrubs his scales and his mom picks all the bugs off his "cute, furry ears." His bedtime snack includes worm juice and baked beetle bread. He brushes his fangs and chooses a book to cuddle up with. While the text is quite fun to read, it is the watercolor illustrations that steal the show. Each page is filled with kid-friendly monster details such as a toothbrush with a bone handle, spider pj's, a tub with real claw feet, an eyeball night-light, and, of course, bats and mice all around. Take a standard "getting ready for bed" picture book, add in a good dose of Halloween monster stuff, and you get this delightful tale. A fun storytime or anytime book for all but the most sensitive child.Catherine Callegari, Gay-Kimball Library, Troy, NH

Format: Hardcover
Halloween time is coming soon, and even the smallest kids like to feel that they can participate in all the monstery fun, so I am always looking for good read alouds that can give just the barest hint of the scary or gross without being...well...scary or gross. This book certainly fits the bill.

Goodnight, Little Monster depicts a child and mother monster as they go through their bedtime routine of bath, pajamas, stories and snacks. The charm in this one lies in moments such as when the mom reassures her little monster that no "scary children" are lurking under his bed, or makes him a snack of "worm juice and baked beetle bread." The rhymes here are all extremely well written and flow nicely. If I have one criticism, and it's a small one, it's that some of the rhymes are a little overly sweet for my taste. They do provide a nice counterpoint to the illustrations however, so maybe that's the whole point.

The illustrations in this book are outstanding. Make no mistake, this little monster is very cute! This is a solid storytime selection because of the nice read aloud flow, but will also work well for one on one sharing because of the richly detailed illustrations that will prompt lots of requests for re reads as kids will not want to miss all the bugs, spiders, bowls of eyeballs, and bats. A great choice for any monster fan, with an ending message that assures the little monster that "With Mama nearby, you'll be safe through the night." Great stuff.

As an educator and parent I like to read short books, interesting and educational for my children and my nephews.
I found this book suitable! The book explains clearly in simple words and beautiful illustrations the story content. It is important for children to learn from a young age to read interesting and positive things, while hearing when the parent reads it or first reading.
It is especially important today, when children spend time playing games and using the computer to read, and see the story on the Kindle or tablet, it adds an important skill that causes the child want to read more books.
A nice addition to this book is short and charming story about a cute puppy who is looking for how to ask for food.Children's Book: Lucky The Forgetful Puppy (Colorful Children's Books Collection)

The illustrations in this book are beautiful. The poetry is cute and it'd be a good book to read children who might be afraid of monsters

Nice short bed-time story. My son likes short colorful books to read while stalling bedtime, so this is the perfect little story.

This is a relatively cute book, carrying the monster "theme" through the text and the illustrations very well. However, this also means that the illustrations lean towards the creepy and gross side of things, which should be kept in mind if you have a child who doesn't really like bugs, monster claws and teeth, etc. Other than the spiders everywhere, I thought it was a great bit of continuity (and creativity), and really enjoyed the monster specific portion of the Little Monster's bedtime routine (like howling at the moon).

The writing leans towards being an illustrated poem, rather than just prose with some rhyming words, and it does a fairly good job at it--but does also loose the rhythm and cadence in a few spots. Over all, it's a cute book, but isn't necessarily for just any kid.

A while back I bought "Beautiful Moon" a beautiful children's book and fell in love with it! I absolutely LOVED the illustrations on that book. From then on I have looked up all the books that this Illustrator has worked with and I was able to find this lovely book as one of her works. This book has the most amazing illustrations and to top it off has a very cute little story!

The story is placed in the house of a little monster while his mom does her bedtime routine with the little monster. He is afraid of children and look under the bed to make sure there's no children under his bed, all while he's about to go to sleep.

I bought this book because after searching for it, I found it to have excellent reviews as well as many awards. It's a must have for your children!

I'm not sure what it is, but the story seems a bit difficult to read out loud. It seems a bit forced I'm glad I didn't pay much for it. However, the illustrations are great!
