There's a Monster In Your Book by Tom Fletcher

Where Did You Say That Little Blue Monster Is? 

What!!!!  Inside My Book?

On the first page is a blue round-faced monster with pink horns and a fluffy pink tipped tail eating part of the book. The narrator encourages the child to do certain things in order to make the monster leave the book. Shaking the book, tickling the monster’s feet, blowing on him really hard, tilting the book, and spinning the book are some of the interactive instructions that are given by the narrator.

Finally, the monster disappears from the book. 

“There ISN’T a monster in your book anymore. . . .  Now he’s in your room! Quickly, call him back!” 
And thus the monster is coaxed back into the book where he falls asleep. The child is encouraged by the narrator to gently close the book so that the monster doesn’t wake up.

My Thoughts

What Concerned Me: As a warning, kids prone to worrying might wonder if the monster will escape from the book again and get into their room. The monster is depicted as cute, but to some, a monster is a monster.
What I Liked Most:  I can imagine little ones who get fidgety listening and comprehending a regular picture book, would appreciate this interactive story.
