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.
I like the idea of this book, and how the little one was has big dreams, but doesn't want to leave his parents behind. This reminds me of when i was young and would tell my mother that i would never get married and leave her! I can see this being a very relatable book to young children.
