#Review: N is for Nonslense by A.J. Cosmo #kidsbook, #atozchallenge



Summary:
What’s a boy to do when he meets a monster that makes no sense?

The last few nights at home, Peter McBrody had been accused of doing all sorts of strange things. Floors had been painted with flour, bed linens had been eaten, and milk floated in the sink.

"It's not me," Peter said.
"Then who do you suppose did it?" asked his mother.
"A monster?" Peter said, not sure if that made any sense.
"There are no monsters," his mother replied.

Peter was certain monsters were real. After all, he had one. His monster loved things that didn’t make any sense and if he didn’t figure out how to get rid of it, he’d be grounded forever.

What would you do?



My review:
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.
