Book Review: Birthday Monsters

Rating: ★★★★☆

Sandra Boynton brings us yet another snappy, silly book of hilarity for preschoolers. This is a fantasy about waking up on your birthday and finding that a group of cheerful monsters have arrived to give a party. They do all the things that bad party guests do: Arrive too early, give self-serving gifts, cheat at games, eat up the cake, and make a big mess. But it’s all in fun: they return to tidy the mess and replace the gifts and cake.

Preschoolers will love the rhythmic, crisp way this story is told, and will really enjoy the over-the-top bad example of these  birthday monsters. And it’s actually funny enough that you might not be tempted to hide it on a high shelf after a few dozen readings.
