Book Review - Laura Numeroff's 10-Step Guide to Living with Your Monster
Laura Numeroff's 10-Step Guide to Living with Your Monster
by Laura Numeroff
Laura Geringer Books, 2002
Review by Christian Perring, Ph.D.
Apr 14th 2002

This guide is incredibly useful for children who need advice about monsters. Not about escaping from them or slaying them, but keeping them as pets. When picking monsters, for example, it recommends that you should choose one who can play the banjo and tie his own shoes. The illustrations are very clear -- they show you a monster playing the banjo, and other monsters trying to dance. There are also helpful hints about finding the best name for your monster; "Fluffy" is probably not the best selection. The pictures are the best part of this book; there are lots of small details that careful scrutiny will discover, so you will be able to read this book again and again without getting bored. Excellent stuff!
