There's only one rule in Larry's book: don't push the button.

(Seriously, don't even think about it!)

Even if it does look kind of nice, you must never push the button. Who knows what would happen?

Okay, quick. No one is looking... push the button.

Uh, oh.

It's a very cute, fun and engaging book. It's hard for my son to sit down and listen to me read him a book. Although with this book it keeps him engaged pushing the button and laughing. We absolutely love this book. From my 9 yr old to my 3 yr old

My Grandchildren love this book. We read it all the time. They can't wait to push the button. And when it comes time to shake the book, they do it singing "Shake Your Booty." My grandchildren are ages 3 and 4.

A new family favorite with the feel of an old classic! DON'T PUSH THE BUTTON! by Bill Cotter was a fun, silly read-aloud book that left my whole family in fits of giggles.  Larry's book has one rule: DON'T push the button! (Seriously, don't even think about it!) But as soon as someone tells us DON'T, we automatically want to try it. And eventually, everyone knows we're going to push the button. But when we do, all kinds of mayhem occurs. When I got a copy of this book from NetGalley to review, I giggled my way through it twice on my own, and then gathered my family together and read it to them as well. DON'T PUSH THE BUTTON was cute and clever, with the same feel as the classic THE MONSTER AT THE END OF THIS BOOK, where the child is invited to participate in the story by reacting to (and disregarding) the instructions of the narrator. It brought back happy memories of my own childhood story times as I read together with my children. Even my teens and husband wanted to read it again when we were through! This is definitely one we're putting on our "we must purchase a physical copy of this book" list!

I watch a group of three, four and five year olds as they were being read this book. Their expressions and reactions said it all! What fun they had pushing the buttons and watching what happens with the turn of each page. I highly recommend this book for the child in your life. Fun for all!

This fun, interactive book stars Larry, the purple monster.  He is friendly, happy and completely non-threatening.  He is having a meltdown because he has privy to a red button and he knows you are not to push it.  He agonizes over the fact that that button is off limits...but oh he wants you to push it sooooooo badly.  He tempts the reader to just give it a little tap and of course when that happens Larry's world changes.  His beautiful purple turns him yellow, them gives him spots and then multiplies him.  Larry gives the reader verbal instructions:  push button, push it twice, shake the book, scratch his tummy, all in the hope of turning him back to normal again.  Kids will love this book and the fact that they can interact with this adorable little monster.  The illustrations are big and vibrant and very expressive.   Toddlers and pre-schoolers will giggle and laugh as they are instructed to work with Larry to change him back.  The suspense and tension Cotter builds up pushes the narrative forward in such a fun, entertaining way.   The premise is very similar to "The Monster at the End of This Book", starring Lovable, Furry Old Grover and "Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus," but no matter how many ways this dilemma is portrayed it is always a hoot and kids just love it. I particularly liked Bill Cotters dedication:  To Mom and Dad                                                                     for always encouraging me                                                                     even when I was pushing                                                                      their buttons.

I do Storytimes, and this was a HUGE hit with the young crowd. Great monster--Harry--who you have to have a voice for. And everyone will want to press the button!

What a pathetic ripoff of Herve Tulle's brilliant and original "Press Here"! Shame on you, wannabe author. And shame on B&N for endorsing the fraud!
