Editorial Reviews

New York Times Book Review
The birthday child looks very much like a hippopotamus. Her friends, the birthday monsters, arrive just after dawn, bring presents, make a wonderful mess and clean it up. Part of an appealing new board-book series. --New York Times Book Review, 3/13/94

My daughter received this board book for her first birthday. Reading this aloud as a family for each family member's birthday is our family tradition. Just finished our 18th year of reading

Another wonderful board book that little ones enjoy, a helpful tool to teach a love of reading early.

I got this book for my son's first birthday, and it was worth it. Even though it is a birthday book, I can not help but read it all the time. It is funny, and it has a good twist that you really do not see coming. It teaches that things are not always what they seem. I think it will be around for a very long time.

When we first started reading this book to our son on his first birthday, we became a little nervous. I think I even said, "This book is awful!" We kept reading andrealized Sandra Boynton did it again. She wrote a wonderful book w/ great rythmn. It is a fun read with a nice ending!

My son adores pretty much all of Ms. Boynton's books, but is particularly enamored with this one. And, we love it too. It makes a great birthday gift - or a good book to read anytime :-)

I gave a copy of this to both my boys on their birthdays. It's hiliarious! They love it when the monsters use his breakfast as confetti. This book makes a great gift for all ages. It's tradition to read it every year on birthdays for everyone in the family.
