Whether that's good news is, of course, a matter of taste. It made a backdrop a little less accessible for me, but didn't interfere with my enjoyment of the story and its message of sharing and community. The cuddly monsters and their toys are drawn in a style that's bound to appeal to children and reminded me a bit of Miyazaki's Totoro. Reading it on a kindle paperwhite didn't detract from the art: even in grayscale it was clear and warm.
The author does a solid job of making the rhyme feel unforced, but if you're a stickler for an even meter that doesn't change throughout the book, you'll find yourself stumbling here or there. A stickler myself, these uneven feet are why I docked a star, so if you're worried you might not like the verse, make use of the "look inside" function and check out the first page, which is pretty representative of the book.
I received a free kindle copy with a request for a review.
The pastel monsters are not frightening and neither are their actions. Young children will see themselves reflected in the story where dissatisfaction and sharing play a vital part.
The story is told mostly with one-syllable words. The rhythm is just right and the rhyme is perfect. The book would make a nice Chanukah gift for Jewish children and their non-Jewish playmates.
