From School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1—"Everybody knows monsters SNARL! But did you know…Even snarling monsters ride the bus to school. They learn their ABC's and draw in art class." Readers quickly find out that monsters are just like them. The true winner of this book is the amazing art. Every spread seems to have hidden jokes and amusing details. The monster chooses "Swamp Munch Cereal" ("free bugs inside") and "Mantis Milk" for breakfast, and he wears "Fur of the Loom" underwear. These additions will make the book a favorite in both storytimes and one-on-one readings. Pair it with Mo Willems's Leonardo, the Terrible Monster (Hyperion, 2005) for a laughter-filled beastie storytime.—Brooke Rasche, La Crosse Public Library, WI

" In this adorably illustrated children's book... the author wrote this story to take the fear away from children that monsters are more like them than they realize. I wish I had this story to read when I was a child. Well done!" - Night Owl Reviews
"Such a sweet book to share with the little monster... I mean... the child in your life!" - Bumbles and Fairy Tales
" AJ Smith speaks to the hearts of the littlest readers...if you're the adult reading this book aloud, Smith didn't forget you: nearly each page has details that will make you smile, too, and lots of grown-ups-will-notice jokes." - Bookworm Sez

Mr. Smith uses digital art to illustrate his story. His monsters, Glubb and Skeebu, are brightly colored and have friendly expressions, even when they’re being very monster-y, growling, and snarling. The text is bold, black and has an almost paintbrush-stroke feel to it, creating some interest for the reader.
