Personally, I'm a big fan of the 'package' that makes up "Boogie Monster" : the copy we purchased came with a cd of music to accompany the text, and a pair of 'boogie leggings' that you can put on and dance around in along to the reading. The illustrations are fun, and the basic narrative is interactive and interesting. As other reviewers have mentioned, there's something lacking--and I think it's emotional depth, personally.

My five-year-old son picked this book out from the library this week.

There are a lot of things to like about this book; most of all, the illustrations. I liked the idea of the dancing monster. I liked that my son got up and danced for part of the book. And I loved how endearing the artwork was.

You'll need plenty of room when reading this story as it encourages children to dance however they want from rolling to spinning like a helicopter there's no right or wrong way to dance.
A cute follow-up to Tickle Monster .

Evidence that my six-year-old is smarter than me: as soon as he saw the cover of the book he knew it was crafted by the same people as Tickle Monster

Well, I would have known as we started reading, but I didn't realize it from the cover.

I didn't think it was quite as fun as the previous book, but it got my son dancing around.
Cute rhyming book about getting up and dancing your own way with friends and alone and everywhere. Great illustrations.
Great message and fun illustrations but I didn't love it as much as I wanted to, and I'm not sure why.
Good interactions for the kids, but a little long so good to pick and choose beforehand.
