This book was a quick read, I found it very hard to put down.I found that I understood what was going on fairly well not having read the first book in the series, The Girl Who Lied. I highly recommend reading this psychological thriller and I look forward to reading more of Sue Fortin’s books.

A twist to the classic rhyme. When the traditional rhyme just doesn’t seem to fit the boy and girl visiting their grandpa, he comes up with a list of unusual alternatives.
I give this book a rating of 5 stars. I read it to my youngest daughter who is 4 and we both really enjoyed the book. Was very cute and funny. I really like the illustrations, they were fun and colourful. It was worth the read and would definately buy this book for my household and as gifts.

Publisher: Annick Press Ltd.
Publish Date: April 10,2018
Thanks to NetGalley and publisher Annick Press Ltd. for the ebook ARC of Beware the Monster by Michaël Escoffier and illustrated by Amandine Piu.
Who will be the monster’s next victim? Can a monster ever eat too much? Apples, leaves, trees and even cows don’t stand a chance as he goes through the woods satisfying his enormous appetite.
I give this book a rating of 3 stars. I thought the book was cute, suspenseful and very colourful illustrations. I read it to my youngest daughter, who is 4 years old and she didn’t like the book. She said it was scary. So if its being meant for younger kids, I don’t really recommend it.
