School Library Journal Review
K-Gr 2-A young boy is cast as a ninja monster in his school play, so he decides to prepare for the role by fighting the hairy green monster in his closet. It turns out that his closet is a fantasy world where the monster lives, and the boy tries to capture it with a giant shark and silly string. Finally, using a robot and a cage, the boy catches the creature, who turns out to be friendly. The two play for hours at the monster's house, and the boy even meets the monster's parents. Unfortunately, he must go to bed and is magically transported back to his room where his mother tucks him in. The colors are bold and appealing. The pace of the narration is slow, though, and may turn some listeners off. VERDICT Overall, a light production for fans of the popular book series.-Martha Rico, El Paso ISD, TX © Copyright 2017.
