From the Inside Flap
Lovable, furry old Grover is distressed to learn that there's a monster at the end of this book! He begs readers not to turn the pages, but of course kids feel they just have to see this monster for themselves. Grover is astonished--and kids are delighted--to discover who is really the monster at the end of the book!

When I saw it in the Kindle edition, nostalgia compelled me to purchase it, even though we no longer have young children in our family. Rereading it reminded me of just how wonderful this book is. It is fresh and timeless, and definitely aged well. Who knows, maybe we'll get the opportunity to read it to great grandchildren some day.
I saw negative reviews of this book but the posters were reviewing the wrong book. There is a modern SEQUEL called "Another Monster At The End Of This Book". "The Monster At The End Of This Book ", is the original book and it is unchanged in the Kindle edition. I didn't notice who wrote the sequel, but Jon Stone wrote the first book and he penned an enduring classic.
I highly recommend this book.
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.
