review 1: This poetic rhyming picture book lullaby, is a cute story of a day in the life of a monster. These monsters are act just like a lot of children do when it is time for bed. Yolen did an amazing job pairing up with a great illustrator. The colorful monsters fill the page, even during the dark bedroom pages the colorful monsters draw your eyes attention as they are doing other things besides sleeping. There are so many types of creative monsters illustrated but the story is of two monsters that are brothers. The words are big and bold, for a child to read alone or read themselves. This book would be a kindergarten book, but also a great book to read while a child is getting round down after a busy day, just like the monsters in the book. Children who are afraid of monsters wo... moreuld find it hard to be scared of these cute funny monsters.
review 2: Fun for little ones who prefer their monsters on the cuter side (lots of fun non-scary monsters in these delightful illustrations), I was left a bit underwhelmed. While the story begins smoothly and pleasantly as little monsters hurry home and enjoy dinner and bedtime rituals, the rhyme scheme falls apart at the end and it all just feels a little stuck together once the monsters try to go to sleep. less
