#Review: N is for Nonslense by A.J. Cosmo #kidsbook, #atozchallenge
It is not so unusual for children to make messes but when someone or something else is making it, what are they to do?
This was a fun quick read. I enjoyed how the author described this very crazy, "nonsensical" creature that only the character Peter seemed to see. It did help that his best friend finally saw it too and the ironic way they tried to get rid of him.
The one thing I did find sad was that Peter's Mom did not believe him or even pretend to believe him. Most adults would not think monsters to be real but with the imaginations of a child, they can be very real. Children need to be believed.
I did like however, that Peter eventually took responsibility to clean up the mess even if his real or imagined monster made the mess and he didn't. Children also have to learn responsibility and often that is one hard lesson to learn.
Terrific book and I give it 4 stars.
