Written by Paul Czajak

Illustrated by Wendy Grieb

32 pages – ages 6+

Published by Mighty Media Press on June 28, 2016

Synopsis- Monster and Boy are back in another book! Monster needs to go to school, but he’s reluctant to try it. Maybe he’d get bullied because he looks different? But Monster goes to school, and he actually has a nice time! Until he sees his new friends bullying another kid. Monster speaks up right away but he is scared his new friends won’t like him.

What I Thought- This was a nice book about how school isn’t that bad. Well, elementary school, at least. Middle school’s a whole ‘nother story. 😉 I liked how it had an added message of how having friends is great, but when our friends turn out to be bullies themselves, we need to speak up. Mr. Czajak skillfully points out that being a bystander is just about as bad as being a bully. Ms. Grieb’s illustrations create a sense of liveliness, and are very colorful. I thought it interesting to see other monsters in some of the scenes – usually you don’t see other monsters in the monster series. The rhyming is rather good too – it flows evenly and has a fun rhythm to it.

I give this book five out of five bookworms!fivebooks

    I love this book. All of the Monster and Boy books are great. I just wonder, how did Monster sit in those tiny chairs?

      I agree with you completely… And I also have no idea to the answer of the question. 🙂
