The Monster That Ate My Socks by A.J. Cosmo Review & Giveaway

Book Synopsis:

A young boy, who is about to be grounded for going through so many socks, discovers that a monster has been eating them.

Max is a young boy who is constantly getting in trouble for his socks disappearing. He doesn’t know where they go, but he does know that if he doesn’t do something quickly his mom will ground him for summer. Max soon discovers that a little green monster is sneaking into his room at night and eating his sweaty socks. His mother, of course, doesn't believe him, so Max calls on his best friend to come for a sleepover to catch the monster.
They devise a trap and capture the monster only to learn that the creature can speak. It hasn’t meant to cause any harm, it's just trying to feed its family. The monster shows them his home and his three little children and begs the boys not to turn them over to the adults. Adults, he says, want to destroy monsters.

The boys are left in a pickle. Allow the monsters to be and get grounded, or turn the monsters in knowing what will happen to them? Neither idea seems good, so they come up with a new plan!

My Review:
I really liked this story. It was cute and funny. It also had a great message at the end. I liked that the monster could talk and that the kids used made a plan to catch the monster. I also loved the homework part. I also liked that the monster and his family had a happy ending. I am giving this book a 5/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.

  1. no, not afraid of monsters but definitely afraid of the dark.

  2. Thank you for the wonderful review!

  3. No, I wasn't afraid of monsters but I was afraid of someone hiding under my bed.

  4. I don't think I was afraid of monsters, but I did have some weird fears. Escalators scared me to death. I think I was afraid of somehow getting sucked under the floor along with the stairs. Crazy to think about now :)
