“Rich with feeling . . . a warm, gently funny reminder to chase down one’s dreams, rather than waiting for them to appear on the doorstep.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Some of the kids in Marilyn’s class have monsters. Marilyn doesn’t have hers yet, but she can’t just go out and look for one. Your monster has to find you. That’s just the way it works. Marilyn tries to be patient and the kind of girl no monster can resist, but her monster doesn’t come. Could she go out and search for him herself? Even if that’s not the way it works?

Usually, monsters are scary but in this picture book, everyone wants one. And most kids have their own, except for Marilyn. She can’t find her monster. She tries to be patient because in this story, your monster has to find you. Some kids get their monsters at school, or the park or even at the library. It’s funny because monsters are good. They help you with problems. When Marilyn was scared at night because her room was dark and scary, she wished for a monster. It reminded me of the good monsters from the movies, Monsters Inc and Monsters University. Will Marilyn ever get her monster? You'll have to read it to find out. It's a great book. I laughed when Marilyn got so mad that she decided to pack a lunch and go looking for her monster. She packed a thermos of juice and two peanut butter and banana sandwiches. It’s always good to be prepared. I give this book five stars. I loved going on the hunt for her monster. I know how scary it can be in a dark room at night, so I wanted her to find her monster. Now my brother, who is 5, is scared of monsters, so this book was not one of his favorites. If you want to read this book, make sure you can handle good monsters. This book really reminded me of a book about Beekle, an imaginary friend. It’s a similar story, only the little girl is looking for an imaginary friend instead of a monster. That should be the next book you read, after this one. Cameron H., age 7, New Mexico Mensa
