"My favorite of all, the story and illustrations are never anything but fresh and delightful. Maurice Sendak says he fashioned the monsters after all of his elderly aunts and uncles. A very creative story."
"There are many favorites in this collection. I recommend also a DVD that has all of the stories and songs (Chicken Soup with Rice is a great song for kids). Pierre is a great story about a contrary kid. Alligators all around is also on the DVD and is a fun song and alphabet learning tool."
""In the Night Kitchen" was also a story I loved to read and the kids loved to hear. It's such a unique story about a boy who wakes up at night and hears noise coming from the kitchen. He magically falls down into the kitchen, where 3 bakers are whooping it up and baking cake for breakfast. Very imaginative and entertaining."
"We could read this night after night and still have such fun with it. It is full of tough and silly tongue twisters that I can still recall years later. My teenager pulled it out recently, and it's still fun!"
