Hi-larious poetry and excellent artwork. I'm a big fan of Adam Rex and this book is a great example as to why. Just and example-there is a poem titled, "The Phantom of the Opera Can't Get 'The Girl from Ipanema' Out of His Head".

Rex's poetry and art will tickle your funny bones, both the verses set in type and the rhymes drawn in the background of illustrations. Haiku with monsters!

One of my all-time favorites. Very clever and funny; especially great for kids who are "just a little too old for picture books" but who enjoy being read to every now and again.

For ages 3-5. This book is fresh, creative, and funny, with just enough gory detail to cause a few gasps. Kids will eat it up. Readers will relish every gross and hilarious poem in this monstrous menu of misadventures…This is a read-aloud candidate sure to elicit loud screams—but not of fright.

What does Frankenstein's Monster do when there's no food at home? All he has to do is walk outside, and the local peasants pelt him with a plethora of rotten food. Not being the pickiest eater, our stitched-up protagonist does some experimenting of his own, creating a bizarre super-stacker sandwich fit for a monster.

In this hilarious and mildly gruesome collection of silly, clever poems, readers learn about the problems monsters face. Frankenstein just wants a snack, and is attacked by an angry mob; Wolfman gets a list of complaints from his roommate; the Son of Dracula faces a terrifying dentist; and, in a running gag, The Phantom of the Opera is going buggy because he keeps getting inane pop songs stuck in his head. There are lots of fun details to look for in the illustrations (an entire bonus story is worked into the spread for "The Invisible Man Gets a Haircut"), and kids will love poring over them as well as hearing the poems read out loud.

Sometimes spooky, sometimes scarey.
The illustrations are sure to fascinate young readers. And the rhythm and rhyme are comical and intriguing. Truly a riot of words. *Great summer reading entertainment. *Silly, ridiculous, just fun reading.
