Cute book. Not much substance but cute.

The child likes Huggly, but I remain indifferent. I prefer Hi! Fly Guy or Catalina Magdalena Hoopensteiner Wallendiner Hogan Logan Bogan Was Her Name.

Huggly is presumably an alien, because he's used to a slime pit back home. This little imp creates havoc in a small child's life, and then the father says, "I bet the monster under your bed did this!" Actually the moster looked like a ghost, so the "people child" said it was a ghost.

My son said, "he's making a mess," while reading. He likes to be clean. I like that about him.

My daughter, an avid book hound, makes me read this to her pretty much every night. It's by far her favorite book, and she has it memorized. It's a neat little story, and we highly recommend it for bedtime story purposes!

When he ventures out from under the bed one night, Huggly tries to figure out the use for various items in the bathroom.

A funny little story about the monster under the bed. I enjoyed it but my 10 year old thought is was not so great. A younger kiddo would probably enjoy it more.

The book was ok. The frog takes a bath and the people discover him in bubbles and think it is a ghost.

Really a rating of 3.5. This book made me giggle, with Huggly's exploration of a house's bathroom. I think primary kids would love to hear this read aloud.

You adore Huggly, the little monster who is constantly learning about the human world and just doesn't know what all these alien human oddities are about!
