I'm reviewing this as the girl I was when I last read this book, which was about 13 years ago, when I was 6.

This is THE most hideous book of all time. It is terrifying and has made me develop an unhealthy fear of MY OWN MOTHER!
The first thing I do in the morning is check my mums ears haven't turned all green and pointy and the last thing I do at night is check she hasn't sprouted a scaly tale.
My intense fear is exaggerated by my dad, who finds my reaction hilarious when he says "Ruby... Mummy'

I liked this book becuse I'm sure that all students can relate. In this story, there is a single mother and two children/ While the mom is prepearing the house for visitors, the two children are constnatly messign up. Each time they do something, the mom grows the body part of an animal. The illustrations are amazing, so they keep the children's attention. After a while, the children understand why their mom is so upset, and they clean up everything that they've messed up. This could be a good b ...more

Ok, if you are a mom you have to read this book. I feel like this MUCH of the time. When I clean, my children are messing things up right behind me and company always comes at times of mess (unless planned ahead of course). I see myself turning into a monster a lot. The kids think it is funny to watch the mom grow monster parts. And it even gives them ideas of how to make the monster in Mommy go away.

I liked this book because it relates to how a lot of children probably feel. It shows a lot of trouble that a typical family can have when planning for something that occurs off schedule. It has a good story line, so I would consider it a good read. Anything that gets students interested is generally a good read.

I love this book! Used to read it to my children, and now I'm looking forwards to sharing it with lots more in schools! So much for children and parents to relate to here, and great illustrations to look at too.

This is the one I just reviewed but it didn't have a picture, well, here it is. I love it, I feel like this much of the time. My kids get a kick out of it and even ideas of how to make my "Monster parts" go away.
