Trusted Reviews & Ratings

B is for Bookworm
Book-loving mommy-to-be! Recently enjoyed The Hobbit, Becoming, and The Marvelous Magic of Miss Mabel.
4.75 / 7.0

The illustrations will make you think all monsters are adorable. :) This book is great for Halloween, but it’s a bedtime book and the story of a parent and child, so it’s applicable all year long. The book includes a variety of different monsters, though sensitive readers might get scared by some of the them.

Spent many carefree hours hunting clues with the Hardy boys and defending Redwall Abbey.
4.75 / 7.0

Despite having monsters in the title, this is a rather gentle going to bed book. I enjoyed the author’s incorporation of language such as “chase you into bed” and “gobbled down a snack” that shows a tender side of fatherhood while still reminding you of their monster side.
