Such a great book, especially for around Halloween time, but it’s worth reading year round! The message that being grateful is far more enjoyable than being a little monster is a great one, and the setting in this very unrealistic situation makes it enjoyable rather than overly moralizing.

I really love this book, especially for Halloween time! It’s my favorite Halloween book, and I love it every time I read it. Great for kids because it shows that monsters aren’t all scary, and promotes saying thank you! The illustrations are fun, too. :)
