I read this parody of Goodnight Moon during Family Storytime. It went over the heads of the toddlers in the crowd, but the older kids and the adults thought it was funny. Recommended for a Halloween or Monster themed storytime.

When I saw the title of this book, I was hopeful for something funny and clever. I felt terribly let down. The first half of the book was slightly clever in that each thing pointed out was somewhere in the boy's room and you could flip back and find those items. But then the monster comes in the window and starts destroying everything in sight. What, I wonder was the point of that?
The illustrations are good and rich, but the story line leaves much to be desired. I felt more confused than intrigued. I cannot envision any age group that would fall in love with this book. I feel it is inappropriate for children under the age of seven. I don't feel children older than that would find enough to interest them. Overall, not what I was hoping for in a Goodnight Moon parody.
Would I recommend this book? NO

Like his other monster parody "The Runaway Mummy" this very funny picture book is perfect for reading at Halloween time. The illustrations of vivid monsters/scenes may still scare the most sensitive kids even with the silliness of the story.

This book is SO CUTE! If you have a little one that loves all things 'scary' and monsters being silly- you will want to buy this book! Kudos Michael Rex! :)

A hilarious take on a classic read. Great for children who are old enough to understand the humor!
