Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
This is a sweet tale about a little monster who has ambitions to explore outer space. He worries that he will have to leave his mom and dad behind. The story is entertaining and would be perfect to read at bedtime. And the illustrations are colorful and fun. We enjoyed reading this story together.
