    One of my favorite books of the season this year Some of the fun in this book is watching the kids as they tour the Museum There is one boy that has a snarl on his face and you can tell he doesn t want to be there or anywhere and hates everything As the tour goes on, it looks like all the children are being snatched away It is amusing and the tour goes on I like the exit sign Exit for those who survived The monsters were fun and many of them were from movies like the Blob The artwork wa One of my favorite books of the season this year Some of the fun in this book is watching the kids as they tour the Museum There is one boy that has a snarl on his face and you can tell he doesn t want to be there or anywhere and hates everything As the tour goes on, it looks like all the children are being snatched away It is amusing and the tour goes on I like the exit sign Exit for those who survived The monsters were fun and many of them were from movies like the Blob The artwork was great with plenty to look at and the rhymes about the monsters was fun also We read this together by pumpkin light with my brother reading in spooky voices It was family fun They kids loved this one It was such a production, you can love anything when all the senses are engaged This was fun

    Twenty two poems take young readers on a tour of the Monster Museum in this picture book that is much enhanced by the suitably creepy illustrations of Gris Grimly From the one and only Count Dracula the Transylvanian monster with the most class to the shrieking banshee an Irish ghost with an unmistakably piercing wail the fierce and fearsome, the ghastly and ghoulish, are profiled in Singer s brief poems, and deliciously depicted in Grimly s distinctive artwork The result is a poetic Twenty two poems take young readers on a tour of the Monster Museum in this picture book that is much enhanced by the suitably creepy illustrations of Gris Grimly From the one and only Count Dracula the Transylvanian monster with the most class to the shrieking banshee an Irish ghost with an unmistakably piercing wail the fierce and fearsome, the ghastly and ghoulish, are profiled in Singer s brief poems, and deliciously depicted in Grimly s distinctive artwork The result is a poetic collection that makes for spooky Halloween reading Although I enjoyed Monster Museum, I have to concur with the friend who recommended it to me, in finding Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich a far superior collection, when it comes to this sort of monstrous poetry Unlike Rex s stellar collection, some of the rhymes here felt distinctly forced, and others left me cold altogether I think I would have been significantly less charmed, were it not for the Grimly illustrations I checked this one out of the library this past weekend, together with a follow up collaboration by Singer and Grimly, Creature Carnival , and now I m debating whether I ll read that second title That said, I do recommend this one, as I think it s an entertaining read for the Halloween season, and providesthan a few fun visuals, but I think readers should make an effort to track down the Adam Rex collection as well

    The kids had so much fun with this The boychild has been reading and re reading the poems Quick, funny, and lots of classic monsters.They especially like the one about Frankenstein s Monster where he complains that everyone calls him Frankenstein but that s not his name He was never given his own name.
