Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Children will be starstruck with this monstrously interactive bedtime story. Die-cut shapes on every spread reveal Little Green Monster's physical features: his yellow eyes, bluish-greenish squiggly ears, curly purple hair, etc. Words that describe a feature of the little monster (e.g., "bluish-green nose" and "red smiley mouth with one tiny white tooth") are printed in the corresponding colors. As the story progresses, cut-out stars start to appear, representing bedtime. Colorful words and die-cut-shaped features of the monster are then repeated as readers say "nighty night" to Little Green Monster. Hologram stars, along with a half-moon, fill the final page. Although visually appealing and interactive for toddlers, the die-cut shapes will most likely be vulnerable to wear and tear in most libraries. Best for a family bedtime story and an additional purchase for libraries.-Krista Welz, The North Bergen Public Library, NJα(c) Copyright 2013.

From Booklist

Just as Emberley’s book Go Away, Big Green Monster (1993) allowed young children to send away a potentially scary big monster, the new book lets them do the same to a charming little monster. First, Little Green Monster is introduced, one nonscary feature at a time, from his “two little yellow eyes” to his “one little curly purple hair.” The eyes first appear as a die-cut set of holes in the page, and each feature subsequently takes shape through further cuts, layered on solid-color papers. Page by page, the monster’s comically endearing face takes shape. Then, after the first star appears, the text bids “nighty night” to each feature, and, page by page, they disappear. Words naming a color are printed in that color, introducing the concept for kids ready to consider it. Cleverly designed and sturdy, the die-cut pages are tough enough to endure plenty of finger pokes, hand grabs, and page turns, which are sure to come as young children explore this engaging picture book. Preschool. --Carolyn Phelan

Of all the monster books in the series, this is most like the original "Go Away Big Green Monster" (GABGM). In fact, it's practically identical but in my opinion improved and more fitting for toddlers and younger children.

Here are the improvements:
-- It's more compact and easier to hold to read one-on-one to your toddler
-- There are no "dongles" hanging out. In GABGM, my daughter has ripped out the Big Green Monster's nose several times. I've had to retape many pages repeatedly and had to buy a new one. This is designed much better, so there's nothing tempting your toddler to rip out.
-- There are stars appearing on this one (my daughter love stars)
-- This one focuses less on fear and empowerment and more on discovery and saying good night to the little monster.

If you've never read "Go Away Big Green Monster," then I would describe this book as a wonderful book which fascinates my 2 1/2 year old daughter as each page builds the face more and more, and then have her watch it disappear as she says good night. GABGM itself is a great book which opens up an opportunity for your child to learn about fear and self-empowerment to surmount that fear. Both also give an opportunity for your child to learn about parts of the face.

This is a super cute (quick) good night book to read. The 3 year old asks for it over and over again. The pages are nice and resilient. Would buy again or as a gift. Any child would love it!

If I had a hundred copies of Go Away, Big Green Monster in my school library, they would all be checked out every week. Such is the love my school has for Big Green Monster.

How could I resist this for-younger-readers version of a school favorite?

Of course I couldn't. And I'm glad I couldn't. It's just as fun and just as colorful and just as zany. Just written with very little folks in mind.

We all (ages 31, 2.5 and 10 mo) love this book! A new part of the monster is revealed on each page. Colors and facial features are highlighted in a fun way. My son is able to read along using cues from the colored font and simple cut out illustrations. After a year of nightly readings the book has held up extremely well, only one tear so far. It's a very quick and charming bed time story.

FANTASTIC! I have read that "Go Away Big Green Monster" scares some kids (surprising, but I suppose it's true). This book is the same idea, only sweet and calm. Aside from the word "monster" it really has nothing that could be considered scary. My kids love this book!

This book is a hit with my toddler class! They absolutely love it & can't get enough of it! It's rare to find a book that doesn't drive a caregiver crazy after reading it a hundred times, but this is one of them! The colors and design of each page keeps their attention from start to finish.

They sit with it for a long time, it's a wonderful book and our new class favorite!

But, it's no "Go Away Big Green Monster." I was somewhat disappointed, but the kids like it enough. The stars are cute.
