Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Furry, blue Grover stars in this wildly popular Golden title that features a "monster at the end of this book." Beloved by a generation of fans who have discovered its sweet-natured suspense since the original publication in 1971, this laugh-out-loud read is bound to make its way into the hearts of a new generation, as readers see Grover trying to prevent them from turning pages -- and moving him toward a potentially harrowing meeting with the monster. Despite begging, tying pages together with rope, nailing pages together, and more, a scared Grover only gets closer and closer, until the last page, when we all are introduced to the creature himself. A hilarious, can't-miss treasure that puts a little egg on Grover's face and will definitely be read again and again.
Children's Literature
Sesame Street's own beloved character Grover stars in this "Big Little Golden Book." He plays host, urging the reader not turn to the next page because each one brings you closer to the monster at the end. Grover uses ropes to try to tie the pages back, a brick wall to stop the page from turning, and his urgent pleas to convince you to stop at the page you are on. Of course, children will be even more eager to dive further into this book, curiosity driving them wild to see the monster. This is such a fun book that they won't even realize that they are reading. Perfect for an enthusiastic adult to share with a new reader, the text is full of energy and words seem to jump out from the pages. As far as the monster at the end of the book goes, monster phobes need not fear. 2004 (orig. 1971), Golden Books, Ages 3 to 5.

    Just like Mom used to read!

    This has been one of my favorite books since I was a little girl. I have read it to all 4 of my kids. Now, I can have Grover read it to them as well! My 3 year old loves to have Grover read him the story over and over on long trips! Worth every penny!

    Really good book!!!

    I've been searching through board books available for my two toddlers. I remember this book from when I was younger. I'm so excited to see that it is available as a board book now. I was the oldest of Seven kids growing up and all of the books around the house were always "well loved". Of course back then we never had any board books. I love having board books for my toddlers since they are so much sturdier than the old paperbacks. And this is such a wonderful book for children. Grover is so funny and especially how he is so scared to find the monster at the end of the book.

    One of my absolute favorites!!

    This is the cutest book ever. For any child who is afraid of monsters, it shows that sometimes we scare ourselves over nothing at all. Grover is so funny and silly in this story.

    Cute book

    My daughter loves this book. She is 4 years old. Normally, she is a big fan of Elmo, but Grover is growing on her. If I can't read this book to her, Grover does. Grover's voice is exactly the same as when he's on Sesame Street. Love it!!!

    Cute but cant hear it

    Nice book with grover talking. Would have gave it more stars but even with the volume all the way up you can barely hear the book being read. Even with complete silence in my house, i still have to hold it close to try and hear it.
