MOMSTER is an award-winning, hair-raising story about a boy who after ignoring his mother’s repeated requests,
realizes what a grave mistake that was.
Mom, who is loving and kind by nature, has had it. Her frustration shows as she morphs from her
peaceful self into a MOMSTER. Understanding
quite quickly that his actions were the cause of this terrifying
transformation, he apologizes. The mother quickly forgives and alters back into
her delightful self. The young boy want’s
to warn anyone who will listen of the potential threat hiding in everyone’s
mom. MOMSTER will thrill and chill every
child between the ages 4-10. There is a
lesson of action and reaction that every parent can relate too and will enjoy
reading then discussing with their child.
I love this beautifully illustrated and wonderfully written story. A story of a little boy who saw the other side of his mother, the Momster side of her. It's a wonderful story that teaches respect and obedience, a story that every parent should read to their children. Although it's short but it's pretty impressive and is loaded with life learning lessons.

"Momster" is one of the cutest books I've read in a while. I love the story line. The author used rhyme to enhance its tale, and the message is clear to children - obey your mother for she is worthy of respect, or the monster in her will appear.
The illustrations, which depicted mom as a monster, were cleverly crafted and drew me into the story.
I believe this book will make an awesome bedtime story reminding children to respect their moms. To "cap off the night" important mother/child conversations may also arise.
What a wonderful tale that parents and children can enjoy! The evolution of Mom to Momster is created through the choices the children make and the illustrations are delightful and add great details to the story. My children have read it over and over since receiving it. Looking forward to reading more from author Laura Jensen-Kimball!

Our son just loved having the author come to his school & read her book to the class. He loved it so much that I had to purchase it. I loved how it was fun & he learned the lesson that was written. We use the momster when he isn't doing what has been asked. All we have to say is that I don't want the momster to make an appearance & that is all it takes.
