Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
As if squabbling kids and undone chores weren't enough, now Mom learns she's going to have unexpected company! It's enough to turn any mom into a Monster. The kids see the change coming before Mom even realizes what's happening. And when the kids realize that they have the power to halt and reverse Mom's transformation, they are able to restore her to her same-old, good-old Momness. It's a child's dark fantasy played for laughs in this wildly illustrated picture book by an author known for her ability to demystify childhood fears.

    This book nearly did not make it back to the Public Library.

    When my daughter was about 5 years old we checked out this book at the public library with a few others. I recall taking her to the drop box and asking her to return the books as I watched her from the vehicle.
    Two weeks later as I was going through her backpack, I found the book tucked away. I explained to her that we had to return it back along with late fees. I proceeded to question her the reason for not returning it. She said it was her favorite book. Now that I have found it, I will surprise her with own personal copy. She is now 16.
    I think as a mother, we can all relate to the story as sometime or another. It is a cute story.

    Kids Love This Book

    I brought this book to share with my preschool class, and they absolutely loved it. Upon request, I read it again and again and again and again...until it finally had to go back to the library. It obviously rings true with kids and adults alike.
