Angela (Angel's Guilty Pleasures)
There’s a Monster in Your Book tells a story of what happens when you, the reader, discover a mischievous monster as hoped into your book.

The book is interactive as the reader/child attempt to remove the monster from the book, but then discover that you may not want a monster in your room. It’s adorable. The artwork is colorful. And what ensues are giggles, fun discoveries, and interactions as the child try’s to help do what the author has written on the pages.

I enjoyed There’s a Dragon in Your Book more than this one, probably in part because I discovered it first and, well, she was a cute baby dragon! The monster in this book is cute too and I loved that this book was also interactive. I’m partial to monsters though so I wasn’t overly clear on why we didn’t want him in our book. I would prefer to help a baby dragon than scare a monster.

Nevertheless, I tried to shake him out, tickle his feet and blow him away. I admit I felt bad for the little guy w
Nana’s Thoughts

A cute story about a cute monster. Children are encouraged to shake, tilt, and make loud noises to make the monster move along and get out of the book. My four year old grandson giggled the whole way through and we read it several times in a row. I loved that soon he was “reading to me” because he had memorized most of the story.

The illustrations are delightful too.

A wonderful book for a child’s bookshelf.

What a fantastic concept - help me catch the monster and put him back in the book before you go to sleep - great for the little one who is scared of 'monsters' when the lights go out!
THERE'S A MONSTER IN YOUR BOOK written by Tom Fletcher and colorfully illustrated by Greg Abbot has quickly become a favorite for the Royals. (my grandchildren ages 2.5 and 9 months) It tells the story of what happens when the reader discovering that a mischievous monster has broken into their book! Through action the reader/child attempts to remove the monster my tickling, turning, twisting and yelling. What ensues are priceless giggles and shocking discoveries before the reader/child finds the ...more

4.5 There's a Monster in Your Book is newly released from Tom Fletcher.

Now, with Little Guy, it's important that any 'monsters' have 'nice' faces and be 'not scary'. Greg Abbot's illustration of Tom's monster was approved by Little Guy, so Gramma started to read....

Well, Gramma can read the words, but There's a Monster in Your Book is an interactive experience. Young readers and listeners are encouraged to help shake, shout, spin, tickle, tilt and blow to get the monster out of the book. There

An entertaining and interactive children's book. The whole book is based on the fact there is a monster within the book and it's pages and as a reader you need to try to get it out. The monster illustration is adorable and although called a monster and this book is intended for younger children, they won't be scared of the character. It is a very interactive book for children, which I think would leave them highly entertained.
I really enjoyed this book! It's a very silly book that children will love. I literly couldn't put the book down as I tried to free then catch the monster! The interactive nature of the book is incredibly engaging and gets you more and more excited about the book as you read...100% would recommend 😊

Such a funny little, interactive book. Can't wait to purchase it in the future for children's bedtimes!

With every turn of the page...well, after the introduction to the Monster in the first place...readers are instructed to twist, shake, turn, and otherwise upend their current read in progress, all in an attempt to get this little guy out of the pages! It's a noble effort and SO much fun, especially for wee ones, because they aren't just sitting there listening to the story (though that is TOTALLY enjoyable), they are getting involved in it. Basically, they are putting THEMSELVES into the story i ...more

Bio: This book is really fun and interactive which is why i chose it for a storytime. There’s a Monster in your book and you work on getting them out with verbal and physical tactics such as yelling, blowing and shaking.

Illustration: So much of childrens literature is the cover. We think about what might be fun for kids in what is fun for us as adult. I personally love stories about monsters, its a universal fear that children have. This book helps make monsters less scary with simple and and f

There’s A Monster In Your Book was the first project that Tom Fletcher decided to work on. Unfortunately this was pushed to the side when an idea for a series of picture books about a pooping dinosaur blossomed and then a Christmas dinosaur got its own full-length novel. Now Fletcher makes his return to picture books with this latest release.

This book is self-explanatory: there’s a monster trapped in the book and the aim is to help set it free. To achieve this, the reader I encouraged to spin,

Beyond ecstatic to have received this gem, and it's not just because the author is in my favorite band. (Okay maybe that's part of it).

Anywho, this is a great short read with the kiddos. They can interact with the book and be surprise at the turn of a page. You never know where where the monster could be. By the end of the book the kids are engaged and enjoy reading which is a huge plus for me.

What else can I say? Overall it's one of the best books I've found that the kids love. They've only wa

A lovely book that’s main focus is that a monster is in the book. It involves different methods to attempt to remove the monster from the book such as tickling his feet, tilting the book left and right. All of these methods are wrote in away to be interactive

An interactive book about a monster being stuck in the books, great for younger children!
Lots and LOTS of fun. I really enjoyed this book!

(And I'm always sceptical of celebrities-turned-authors so you know this is gonna be good ;) )

perfect book for children around 0-3 yeras old. great idea!
An adorable little monster is caught in a book. The readers are asked to move or react to the book in order to get the monster out. This is a great read alike for Jan Thomas' books.

Good for preschool or toddler storytimes.

Such a fun book! It has cute pictures, it's interactive, and gives little kids somewhere to keep any pesky monsters that might be lurking in their rooms.

This is a super silly book that engages young readers in an interactive way. The whole point of the story is to try and rid your book of the monster hiding within it. You do this by shaking the book, blowing the monster out, tickling him, etc., until you realize the mistake you made. I would recommend this story for a little one 3-7 years old as a fun read aloud. My first graders asked me to buy it for our classroom like it because they liked the silliness of it.
There's a Monster in Your Book is a fun, interactive, sweet read for your littlest book nerds.

There's a Monster in Your Book! Nobody wants a monster in their book, how are you going to get rid of that pesky but cute little monster? You're going to wiggle, shake, shout, tickle, and turn all about. I loved how fun this book is for little readers, I have to admit even when I read it alone the first time I found myself wanting to do all the things the book suggests to get that little monster out of

PreS-K- A monster has invaded the book! It looks innocent enough, and yet it is already tearing it apart. That is where you, the readers, come in. The goal is to dislodge the little critter from the pages by following a set of instructions. As you tilt and tickle, the monster rolls and reels around each spread in an adorable “dance”, before disappearing altogether. Or at least it would have, if not for the giggle-worthy twist at the end. All the instructions are simple enough for a toddler to pa ...more

"OH NO! There's a monster in your book". The monster in question is cute, small and blue and he is munching on a page of the book. Obviously, we need to get him out. The book invites the reader to try various things to get rid of the monster - shaking, tickling, blowing, tilting, wiggling and spinning- but nothing seems to work. However, making a loud noise sees him finally leave the book. Then it is time for second thoughts - perhaps it is better to have him safely inside the book rather than i ...more

This book was SUPER fun for storytime!!! I highly recommend it!

It's very interactive; on each page you try to get the little monster out of your book, so I asked the children and caregivers to do the actions along with me--tickle the monster (tickle the babies and kids!), tilt to the left and right, shake yourself up, wiggle!, etc. Moving engages kids' brains and helps them grow, which is a tip you can share with caregivers. Since I was doing bilingual storytime, I said some of the words in Span
