Great debut picture book from Tara Lazar. Bright, over-the-top illustrations take the "scariness" factor away. Loved the ending and how the brother-sister relationship came full circle.

In the Monstore by Tara Lazar, Zack visits the Monstore to find a monster who will frighten away his pesky little sister. But things don't work out the way he planned. I loved the Monstore! It's a beautiful picture book. The title and art appealed to me before I even read the book. The writing is charming and humorous. The illustrations by James Burks are absolutely delightful. I highly recommend it.

Really entertaining story... quite clever! Love the illustrations and the story. The story is just in time for Halloween and perfect for boys and girls! Even my 15 yo thought it was cute!

We just got this book in the mail yesterday. I could not wait to read it ever since I first saw it. My kids absolutely LOVED it! It was so much fun to read and the illustrations are wonderful!!! My kids asked me to read it over and over. If your kids love monsters as much as mine do, I would highly recommend this book.

Zack didn’t want his pest of a sister to come snooping into his room anymore. That’s why he went to the Monstore. To buy Manfred, who’s job is to keep little sisters away. Sadly, Manfred “doesn’t work”. Nor does Mookie or Mojo. Zack keeps buying monsters, but none of them do their job. What’s worse is that the Monstore has one policy – NO RETURNS. As the monsters keep piling up, Zack isn’t sure what to do. Okay, I must honestly say that I wish I had a Monstore nearby. And I must honestly add that I have been waiting for this book for TWO YEARS! Ms. Lazar’s blog is one of the first blogs I followed when I first started my blog and I kept hearing her talk about her book that would be coming out and I REALLY wanted to read it. I even sent her a drawing of a monster I would like to buy in the Monstore. And now, I FINALLY GOT A COPY! WAHOO!!! It was worth the wait! I love the story idea and the whole idea of a Monstore! The plot was unique and totally fun to read. The illustrations are AWESOME! The colors and the way all the monsters are drawn go so well with the story. I enjoyed reading this book SO much, I read it 18 times (okay maybe more)! :D **NOTE I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
