This is an odd book but for some reason I can see kids liking it. Whether it be because of their fascination with monsters, the bright and colorful pictures, or the simple language used. Will teach your kids about sharing.

After reading this book, I would read it to pre-k age children to help them learn that sharing with others is a good thing. The boy keeps asking questions to the monster until the monster tells the boy what he wants and instead of the monster eating the boy, the boy shares his food with the monster. It is kind of a strange book, but will keep a child's attention because of the great pictures and rhymes.

The book contains rhyming structure. Its a question and response book, perfect for parents and their child. The illustrations are vivid, scary and full of strong details. The sentences are however placed in an odd angle which can be confusing to some children. The story is great for those children who are very interested in monsters. The book is very original compared to others.
A boy meets an odd looking goblin while playing with a ball outside of his house. Through a series of questions the young boy finds out that this goblin can march, crawl, squish and squash, knock out windows, grab and squeeze and above all else, is very, very, very hungry! You'll never guess what he wants to eat!

This book had a lot of rhyming words for children. It was a question and answer format which would be great for one on one reading. However, the words or sentences were angled very awkwardly which I found hard for children to read, for this reason I did not care for the book. I would recommend it only for older children in 2nd grade and up.

I thought that this book was very short with little words. However it shows children about sharing and playing with other children even though they look different than us. I thought that the pictures are greatly illustrated and draws children to the book. This book teaches children about adjectives and how to use different words to describe words.

This book is very colorful. It has several rhyming words and is a good way to teach children about rhyming. It is a fun, light hearted book.

This book has great rhymes that are very catchy and fun to memorize. However, this book felt short and was told in a strange perspective. All in all, this book would not be recommend that much by me.
