    This book is awsome. Plus Jacqueline Wilson is the one author’s in a million she can not be beaten by any other author. LOL! I advice everyone (especially girls) to read this book.

    Well,this book is certainly for younger readers at about age 6 and up. Although i still enjoy reading this book now older than 6. The vocabulary is very,very easy for all ages and quite enjoyable :)

    I was really pleased to see a Jacqueline Wilson book that I could read as my big sister Kloe loves reading anything by Jacqueline Wilson so I knew I would enjoy this book.

    I really enjoyed The Monster story-teller because I could read it all by myself. I loved the colourful pictures.

    My favourite part was when Natalie went to McMonsters with Little Monster. My favourite character was Natalie because she found Little Monster. This book is great for boys and girls aged 5 up.

    Madison, aged 6

    This is my first book I have read on my own.

    My favourite character is The monster because he has fluffy hair and sharp claws and sharp teeth. My favourite part is when Natalie and the monster went on the flying saucer to monster planet.

    This book I recommended to boys and girls aged 5-8 to read with a little help. The colours are very colourful.
