Title: Monsters Eat Whiny Children Author: Bruce Eric Kaplan Illustrator: Bruce Eric Kaplan Publisher: Simon & Schuster Children's, 40 Pages (August 31st 2010) Age Range: 4 & Up From:the Publisher, Thank You!
Synopsis:When Henry and Eve whine too much it only means one thing - the monsters will come to eat them.
Review: 4 Stars - Monster Eat Whiny Children by Bruce Eric Kaplan is a great book that I’d love to share with my nieces and nephews. I mean who wouldn’t want a way to get kids to stop whining. BUT maybe this is one for when they are a bit older and can laugh along with me while reading.
When Henry and Eve give their father a hard time and whine about everything, he gives them fair warning that if they keep it up the monsters will come and take them away and yep, that’s just what happened to these two kids.
While the monsters come together to try to figure out how to eat the kids, the kids have to come together and figure out a way to escape back home again.
I think that this is one of those books that adults will get more out of than kids, well unless you want to chance scaring the you know what out of them. I can totally see parents using this book as a way to get their kids to stop the whining as well.
As for the illustrations, I do love the simplicity of them. I think that anything more detailed would have made this story even scarier. I think that the point of it all is the story itself, so the art fit along great.
In the end, Monster Eat Whiny Children was a book I loved that’s always lingering in the back of my mind when I hear a kid whining. I look forward to sharing it with my nieces and nephews when they are a little bit older, when I know it won’t scare them. I do recommend this book to parents and older kids.
