Format: Perfect Paperback
This beloved book has been through a number of incarnations and a few updates and is now ready to hit the big time! Want to read more reviews? Look in other editions. MMM was first published in 1977 and that edition is here: Mouse, the Monster and Me - more recently it was 'rescued' by Uplift Press (which used an online publisher that was bought by another so there are a few editions) - and those reviews are here: The Mouse, the Monster and Me: Assertiveness for Young People. One of these editions is currently rated # 12 in books about bullying - but they all may be competing against each other at this point. I hope more people find out about this book; the new edition is truly great, and the new pictures are spot-on, engaging and adorable, with lots of diversity in the images of kids, and a nice retro 1970s feel. The text is easier to read, though it keeps the hand-lettered feel of the old version (which some people loved but others were turned off by). There are tons more reviews of this and the equally wonderful and beautifully updated companion book, Liking Myself, at [...] .

I just received this book and read it and I am very pleased with it. I have not found anything like it on the market and I feel like the topics covered are very essential to help children develop ino healthy adults. I am an elementary school counselor plan to use this book with second through fifth graders as well as reading it to my own children. So excited to have found it!

This is a great book. It begins by explaining the terms "mouse" and "monster" as used in the book. Then, it lays a simple, strong, secular philosophical foundation about strengths, the power of choice, rights and responsibilities. The remaining chapters are about interactions with others: Saying "no" (which is always nontrivial fro children), choosing how to react to criticism, and choosing how to react to compliments. Then, it concludes with a chapter on the freedom that comes with being assertive and responsible: being yourself!

Overall, the explanations are short and sweet—just enough for my six-year-old, but sometimes they could use more explanation. The activities are great! They started many wonderful, profound, productive conversations with my daughter. I sort of wish it had more vocabulary than just "monster" and "mouse". After all, if another child is being aggressive, I'd rather my child didn't say, "You are being a monster." Since it might sound like name-calling. So I've taught my child the words "aggressive" and "passive" in addition to "assertive". Between us, though, if she demands something in a too-agressive way I can say, "Sweetie, that's how a monster would ask for a glass of milk, how can you ask assertively?" and she understands what I mean. Likewise if she's moping around hinting that she wants to do something I can say, "I keep hearing a little mouse squeaking. Can you tell me assertively what the mouse wants?

This is my go-to book for helping children grow strong from the inside out. As a professional counselor, there is no other book out there to match Pat Palmer's book in engaging children to claim personal responsibility for their words and actions, and in the process, becoming self-confident pre-teens. Focusing on personal strengths, assertive communication, rights and responsibilities, and emototional management, each child in my group gets a book to read (but returned for the next group...), along with a journal to record their thoughts and answer questions from the book. Highly recommend this updated "oldie" - its message does not age.

This is a good self-help book for use with individual counseling. Not in the form to use with whole class guidance.
