From the Inside Flap
Many, many adults name this book as their favorite Little Golden Book. Generations of kids have interacted with lovable, furry old Grover as he begs the reader not to turn the page . . . for a monster is at the end of the book!
"Oh, I am so embarrassed," he says on the last page, for of course the monster is Grover himself!

The book is so well written and adorable! I love how Grover is talking to the readers throughout the book; it really feels as though you are interacting with him during the story. And his comments and pleas to the readers to stop turning pages is so cute. My kids get more excited as anticipation grows, and we get closer and closer to the end of the book.
I also really love how the message helps to relay that there was nothing to be afraid of the whole time. It's funny how kids will naturally empathize with Grover being afraid of monsters. But in a way, they become somewhat empowered as the readers who keep turning the pages. And the ending does such a great job of giving a warm reassuring feeling that everything is fine, and Grover was silly to be scared (especially because he's the monster at the end of the book).
This book was delivered very quickly and was packaged well. It arrived in perfect new condition and as expected.
And by the way, the price for this book is unbeatable! Because I consider this to be a personal favorite and classic, I have actually bought it several times as gifts for other kids. Again, the price is awesome and everyone enjoys it; it's a win win for all!
Highly recommended!!! :)
I'm now purchasing this for a shower gift.
This book directly addresses the reader, with Grover doing everything he can think of to try and prevent pages from being turned. His fear is the titular monster at the end of the book. I remember reading this with a mixture of anticipation, excitement, and a little bit of fear when I was a kid - so I hope my son will experience it similarly when he's old enough to really enjoy the story.
