The book starts with an intrusive little monster that moves into Marlows room. The monster is bothersome and makes trouble for Marlow. Marlow enlists the help of his younger sister to deal with this monster. I really loved the twist at the end of this book (no spoilers).
Illustrations are beautifully done and caught both of my daughters attention immediately. The story and pictures are both by the talented Sharon Cramer.
The very first page of the book caught my daughters attention and peaked their interest of the story! What a great thing to be able to read the same story to both my kids. I have a nine year old and a five year old. This is a fun book that this momma will love reading over and over again to my kiddos.
I asked my nine year old daughter to read the book and let me know what she thought. She said she loved it and asked if we could keep it (a sure sign she loves it). She told me what she thought the moral of the story was and she got it right away (again no spoilers). My oldest daughter went on to read the book to her younger sister. Proud momma moment!
The books that get a prestigious spot in our family library has to be entertaining, stay fun after 1000 reads, and have great illustrations. Happy to say that the family has welcomed Marlow and the Monster to our library. I know your family will love it just as much!
