This book is a dull read even for children and pity the poor parent who has to read it aloud.
Not only is the monster clumsy and awkward, the writing is as well. It is irritatingly repetitive: "No banging!" "No banging?" "No banging!" "No banging."

It seems to me that Bruce Colville's poorly written story was written that his wife might create some lovely drawings.

My husband had to finish reading this one aloud to the boys -- it's twice as long as the others in the series and, frankly, I was bored with it. I thought the first part of the series was a great read-aloud, but it really does slow down after Moongobble completes his three might tasks.

I have to think this is a great beginning chapter book for kids. It was laugh-out-loud silly for me, and it's REALLY hard to get me to LOL, so I figure kids will be rolling on the floor through most of the book. A monster who's cursed into being pretty? A toad romance? And the most sensible people in the party are the human kid and the toad.

For those fans who have seen my beloved Spouse-Creature and I interact during appearances, the segment and art with Timbo and Tambo will just add to the fun!

I wonder if there will be more Moongobble and Me books or if this was the last one? Seems like this could have wrapped up the series but you never know. Either way, this was a great series! Good work, Mr. Coville!
Love the Moongobble series for the early readers. The humor is great, the adventure is fun, the author introduces new wrinkles such as the Dangly Boo and Bogfester Swamp.

Another fun book in the Moongobble and Me series. This time they are trying to undo a curse of the Oggedly Nork. Of course, things do not go as planned.
Owen & I really enjoyed this one.
