A children's book that I wanted to read and own since it is about a naughty Boston Terrier puppy. The story is sweet, but the illustrations are wonderful! Hope my granddaughters enjoy it!

Minerva the Monster is the perfect read for preschool- grade 2. I enjoyed the colorful illustrations and how each page was a new adventure into her world as a monster.

A wonderful example of how parents should react to what their child does with their imagination. A good lesson for me, and the kids love it too!
