    1. How often do we let little monsters into our lives: small, cute creatures that seem harmless at first, but grow into ugly, dangerous beasts as we feed and shelter them? We're so charmed by the tiny pet initially that we don't see any harm in adopting it, but we fail to foresee how big and unmanageable it will become as we nourish it. The careless decision to bite off more than we can chew has potential to cultivate a man-eating monster under our own roof, a nightmare we'll have a terrible time g [...]

    2. My kids thought this was cute and while the premise was interesting and the overall story funny, the part that didn't jive with us was all the yelling. The mother and daughter interact pretty much only with raised voices. In my home we really try not to yell, so this was a good example of how not to treat each other. Also, the mother doesn't listen to her daughter very well, nor does the daughter listen to the mother. Their communication needs a lot of help and it doesn't really improve by the e [...]

    3. I have such fond memories of this bookI have not read it since I was knee high to a grasshopper, but I do remember when the monster was hidden by the young girl in the cellar and he ate all of the picklesWhen she had to let him go (sniff sniff) it was always a tear jerkerI also believe that her name was Minneapolis SimskinHow cool is that?

    4. One of the children in my class picked this book to read on her own! It's a transitional book that offers some familiarity and a few challenging words as well.

    5. My favorite book to read to my daughter. "No More Monsters for Me! By Peggy Parish." I remember adding the author's name on the end, just like that, over the 50 or so times I read it to her. What the heck was the girl's name? Minnesota Simpkin or something? Is that the same book? Have to look it up. Minneapolis Simpkin that's what it was.

    6. This was twice as long as as any other level 1 reader I've ever picked up, contained some difficult language (including names), and was about a mom and daughter who yelled at each other and neither listened to each other. Not a fan of this book at all!

    7. As a child I LOVED this book. It was at my grandmother's house and I would read it every time we visited, and often ask to take it home.

    8. I've probably read No More Monsters for Me! more times than I can remember. When it was first published, 1981, I was the target audience for this book and I know my school had many of the "I Can Read Books" as text books.Thematically the book is similar to The Little Baby Snoogle-Fleejer by Jimmy and Amy Carter except funnier and a bit more on point. It's a story about consequences and responsibility.Minneapolis Simpkin learns first hand why her mother warns her about staying away from the fores [...]

    9. Every child wants a pet. Whether its a simple hamster, a rowdy dog, or a crazy cat. And normally parents say no. Well, in this book, Minn Simpkin asks for a pet and mom says no and she ends up bringing a monster home that she finds in the forest. She tries to keep it a secret, and when she decides to tell her mom, her mom doesnt believe her and just thinks she is making it up. Mother gives in and tell Minn she can get a pet. Although pet monsters are not real, I feel like students can definitely [...]

    10. This is an early reader about a girl who has a monster in the basement. She doesn't tell her mom and finds it hard to keep the secret, but when she finally spills, her mom doesn't really believe her anyway. Full of suspense and lovely, written in what looks like free verse even though it is from 1981, this little book will delight you.The illustrations of the monster are so cute, it reminds me a bit of Captain Caveman. Kids will love to read/listen to the book as everyone dreams of having an ima [...]

    11. My Thoughts: Level 2-3 readerVery entertainingCreativeWhy were the mom and daughter yelling at each other???I read this book as a read aloud to my kids. They were glued to the pages; they did not move, which is always interesting to see. I secured this title from my local library.

    12. There's something special about a story where the main character's name is Minneapolis Simpkin! Minneapolis or Minn wants a pet, but Mom says no. She finds a baby monster and brings it home. What should it eat? Where should she hide it? Can she keep it hidden from Mom? Is having a monster better than a pet?

    13. A little girl wants a pet so bad she takes home a baby monster. This turns out to be a bad idea. Through out the story there is just the girl and her mom and no mention in the pictures or the words of anyone else. More of an early reader than a picture book.

    14. Not as scary as it sounds. My kids love to hear this over and over. And the illustrations are great! Since it's an easy reader (2nd grade?) it's not too descriptive, so the pictures give the text added meaning.

    15. A delightful little story about wanting a pet and instead getting a monster. The illustrations are a little old-fashioned, but the story is still fun and kids will find it humorous as the monster grows at break-neck speed.2nd grade and up will be able to read and enjoy this story.

    16. Though this book is easy to read, It started without a beginning. The reader starts off in the middle of an argument without knowing, at first, what the argument is about. It does become clear in the story eventually. I was not happy with the beginning.

    17. This is a decent book for young readers, but it's fairly long, so it might be too long to read at one sitting. The narrative isn't too difficult, though, with simple sentences and basic vocabulary. The illustrations are dark watercolors, but are silly and fun and go well with the story.

    20. My Dad is allergic to all sorts of animals, so I can totally relate to Minn's quest for a pet. My favorite part of this book is how Minn and Mom are constantly yelling at each other. Ha ha!

    21. So many early readers are kind of boring, but this one had her excited to turn each page and keep going to the end.

    27. This was one of my favorite books as a kid. I like the baby monster illustrations, and how the monster's stomach gets all lumpy after eating all the apples.
