“An imaginative rhyming picture book full of funny creatures. For little monsters ages 4 years and up. A little wizard paints creepy, crawly creatures, but soon they come alive. They creep right off his paper. Come meet all his monsters, but please, whatever you do—don’t let them escape!”

*This is only in the Dutch language on Goodreads.*

My Review

I read this one with my son and it was a blast! Oliver is obsessed with monsters right now so this was exciting for him. I loved the rhyming throughout the book! The illustrations are really creative and some of the monsters were really scary. There are also some interactive parts where you have to find monsters too. We had fun counting them! At the end of the book, there’s a part where you can create your own monster in a picture frame. I think that’s a brilliant idea for a kid’s book!

Overall, Ollie and I really enjoyed this one. I wish there was a little more plot to the book but that’s okay. We did have fun and he did want to read it more than once!

Many thanks to Netgalley and Clavis Publishing for an e-arc to review.
