"Perhaps it takes a powerful picture book such as this, which has as much to say to adults as to children, to make us all stop and think." -- Jill R Bennett
"This is a fun picture book that teaches children to appreciate what they have and the value of family over materialistic things. In class, I'd use this in a PSHE lesson, to discuss what makes us happy and how important good relationships are. This would also be a good text for KS1 children to re-write about their own monster, as it has a simple structure with good extended sentences as models." -- ReadingZone
