Children’s Book Review: Leo’s Monster

Leo’s Monster
by Marcus Pfister
North South Books Inc.

Leo’s Monster is a book for children aged about 4-7 years old. The setting is “the country” where a city mouse (Leo) visits his friend Zoe. Leo ventures out without Zoe and encounters what he can only assume is some sort of monster!

As Leo describes the attributes of this monster to Zoe, children are entertained by imaginative pictures depicting the possible monsters that would have these attributes. As Zoe listens to her friend, she just hears him describing her friend Bertha, the cow. My son asked questions as we went. He was very interested in what Leo saw!

This book held my 5-year-old son’s attention perfectly. I would recommend it to anyone with young children. I think it is a great book for children overall, and if the price is in your budget, it will be a book you read and re-read until your son or daughter starts reading it back to you.

I read a digital copy, so I cannot comment on the quality of the actual production of the book.

I will add that since I wrote this review, my kids ask for this book EVERY DAY. They love it.
