This cute story will make kids want to get up and move and groove along with the Boogie Monster. In this story, the Boogie Monster is not a scary, mean monster, but a nice, fun, dancing monster! The story teaches kids that there is no wrong way to dance and that it can be fun no matter what kind of dance moves you do. Shimmy and shake along as you read this story and maybe even learn some new dance moves!

I thought this book was super cute! The illustrations were bold and colorful and fun to look at it. And I love the concept of all the different ways you can dance. It's a good length, not too long or short. Very creative.

Super cute. Great rhymes and great interactive storytime. Easy to pick up and set down as we all dance around.

A cute follow-up to Tickle Monster .

Evidence that my six-year-old is smarter than me: as soon as he saw the cover of the book he knew it was crafted by the same people as Tickle Monster

Well, I would have known as we started reading, but I didn't realize it from the cover.

I didn't think it was quite as fun as the previous book, but it got my son dancing around.

My five-year-old son picked this book out from the library this week.

There are a lot of things to like about this book; most of all, the illustrations. I liked the idea of the dancing monster. I liked that my son got up and danced for part of the book. And I loved how endearing the artwork was.

What I don't like: Books in rhyme that are clunky, forced and difficult to read out loud because there is no flow. If you can tell the story without rhyme and it will still work, there is no excuse for b

Personally, I'm a big fan of the 'package' that makes up "Boogie Monster" : the copy we purchased came with a cd of music to accompany the text, and a pair of 'boogie leggings' that you can put on and dance around in along to the reading. The illustrations are fun, and the basic narrative is interactive and interesting. As other reviewers have mentioned, there's something lacking--and I think it's emotional depth, personally. But as a book that comes with accessories, I think it's about as good ...more

I liked the concept that we all dance our own way, but the rhyming was pretty clunky, making it hard to get into a rhythm reading it. May work better with older children who can imitate the movements more easily.

Great message and fun illustrations but I didn't love it as much as I wanted to, and I'm not sure why.

You'll need plenty of room when reading this story as it encourages children to dance however they want from rolling to spinning like a helicopter there's no right or wrong way to dance.
