    " I can't believe I didn't write a review for this when I used it for my 2nd grade kids! I LOVE LOVE LOVED this book of phantastic poetry! I actually was reading it to myself while the second grade class was working on something else in the library, and couldn't stop laughing! As kids finished their work, they came over to listen to the poems I thought were so clever. I have to say that not everyone appereciated the humor as much as I did, but most of them laughed at at least one! I think that third thru fifth graders would all enjoy this book a great deal - and if nothing else - read one out loud to a group of your adult friends - they'll be in tears! "

    " This is a truly fantastic book of poems by the very talented Adam Rex. I love to hear children LOL at Frankenstein's big disgusting lunch and the fact that Count Dracula has been walking around for several hours with spinach in his teeth. "What was a vampire doing eating spinach anyway?" The poem Zombie Zombie is splendid for choral reading! "

    " loved this book - Adam Rex's skills as both an author and an illustrator are showcased in this book. "

    " Okay so this is not really a picture book but I put in that category because I am not quite sure where to put it. But it is hilarious! Especially the poem titled Godzilla Pooped on My Honda! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth Rachow | 1/24/2014

    " loved the illustrations the stories the humor the poetry everything!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate | 1/19/2014

    " Sometimes, as Robert put it, picture books are written for grown-ups to enjoy. I loved this one, and plan on reading it for my read-aloud kids' book club this fall, the day before Halloween. I particularly enjoyed the Phantom of the Opera, who couldn't get other songs out of his head in order to write new music. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shane | 12/8/2013

    " Read this with my 7-year-old. Pretty hilarious stuff. I'm sure he didn't get half the jokes and there were a bunch of words that were way beyond him but it was fun and he liked the pictures. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jone | 11/29/2013

    " Will enjoy sharing this in October. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 11/27/2013

    " I bought this book for my nephew, flipped through it, read it, admired the illustrations, and then kept it for myself. I'm not the least bit sorry. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Greggd | 11/26/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chachi | 6/11/2013

    " We read this book when we were in 6th grade and it was really funny. I loved the King Tut song the most. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brent | 9/12/2012

    " Holy Cow, this book is hilarious. The pictures alone made me laugh out loud, but the funny poems are also amusing. Great read. I'm so glad that my son brought it home from the library. I need to buy this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Serena | 5/31/2012

    " I ordered this from the library for Halloween. It's ok--it didn't really hold the kids' (ages 4-8) interest -- except for its pictures. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karissa | 3/9/2012

    " Great for teaching different genres of writing and for thinking outside of the box. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaethe | 1/23/2012

    " Still great. I had forgotten there was a Little Dracula in this one, but the PandaBat remembered. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terry | 1/3/2012

    " This was pretty humorous. On a few of the pages, the title of the poem was funnier than the poem itself, but all in all it was a fun picture book. Recommended for anyone who likes poems about and pictures of monsters ... oh, yeah, and for people who like food. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aja Marsh | 12/13/2011

    " this was a fun book i'd been wanting to take a look at since spying it at barnes and noble around halloween. cute. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 12/5/2011

    " this book is full of wonderful and funny pictures and poems! my favorite is about the invisible man who goes to get a haircut. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy | 10/4/2011

    " The subject is so fun, the kids don't even realize they are reading poetry. My son and I have read this book about 9 times in the past 3 days and he keeps asking for it over and over and the great thing is I don't mind reading it again. Thank you Adam Rex! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Moe | 9/17/2011

    " The best part was definitely when Godzilla terded all over the girl's Honda. Godzilla was like, "ruh-roh." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alecia | 9/11/2011

    " My 6th graders LOVE this poetry book. My favorite: when Dracula has spinach in his teeth - what to do? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joy | 6/25/2011

    " So excited to use this book as a model for how multi-genre projects can be published. Check it out. It is witty, humorous, and creative. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christy | 5/24/2011

    " What a funny, funny book. Love to read it over and over with my 7 yo. It makes monsters more fun than scary! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel | 5/20/2011

    " I'm looking for juvenile literature to cannibalize for a children' theater program at the public library. I might be able to use a few of these little poems, and wish I could use more. They are clever and fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donalyn | 12/2/2010

    " A fun poetry anthology starring monsters and food. My favorite, the running joke about the Phantom of the Opera and the songs that stick in his head like "It's a Small World". I cannot wait to share this book with my students who admit they hate poetry. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carissa | 11/7/2010

    " This book was really cute. It reminded me quite a bit of The Stinky Cheese Man. It had some stories that followed through the book, like how the Phantom of the Opera couldn't compose a song because he had some other song stuck in his head. I also liked the artwork. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trenya | 11/2/2010

    " The poems in this book are funny, and the illustrations are incredible. I love looking at every detail in each picture. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathryn | 10/20/2010

    " This is most definitely a picture book and the illustrations are superb, but I couldn't read it all. It's full of words, prose, limmricks, little print, large print and wrap around print. I just found it a much too difficult read to take my time with. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 10/16/2010

    " Best children's Halloween book ever! Perfect for School Age, the Opera of the Phantom cracks me up! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauri | 10/13/2010

    " Absolutely hilarious with AWESOME illustrations. As much for grownups as kids. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sam | 10/12/2010

    " I liked all the stories in this book and the pictures were cool. I didn't like any story better than the others because they were all good. "
