Grumble, grumble, RUMBLE!!! This boy is having some tummy troubles. His Tummy Monster won’t stop making noises! What can a kid do when a monster won’t keep quiet? This is getting quite embarrassing!

This is an extremely cute book – on a topic I haven’t seen before – growling tummies! Who hasn’t had one of those? The illustrations are awesome – they remind me a bit of Japanese Manga. Have a look!


Isn’t that great? This is a good story for pre-schoolers, and kindergarteners. I like how the MeeGenius book has a READ TO ME format. It has sound effects. I like that. It will make young children laugh. The rhyme is well-done. I love how it flows when you read it out loud. This book is excellent for its age-range! πŸ˜€

I give this book 5 out of 5 bookworms!fivebooks

    YaY for Romelle. I’m glad you reviewed this book because it reminded me of two books I need to get. YIKES. I’m SO forgetful. I’m going right now to order. What a great review, Erik! I love rhyme done well.

    ACK. My comment got eaten by a goblin. Man. Those stinkin’ goblins! This was a fantastic review, Erik. I love rhyme done well. I need to order Romelle’s book. And yours for my library. I forgot all about that. Going right now!

      Well, goblins normally don’t bathe, so they WILL stink… πŸ˜‰ Just blame those dirty, no-good trolls! πŸ˜‰

    What an interesting topic. I like the illustrations. They remind me of Kalpart images.

    Love that cover! First time I’ve seen a book about a tummy monster. Great idea!

    The cover picture was a tad creepy at first glance, but now that we read what it is about – it sounds cute. We were wondering what is wrong with that human! We have tummy monsters, too.

      That’s purple? Whoa. I thought it was a blue-black. But, I am colorblind. πŸ˜‰

    Cute story. I hope a way was found to still the rumbles. Peppermint works great. πŸ™‚

      There is a nice solution. πŸ™‚ (thanks for the tummy trouble tip, though – it’ll come in handy! πŸ˜€ )
