I don't get why this has such good reviews

The story is confusing for a 3 year old - the monster doesn't want to be called sweet, only scary. But then when a ogre wants to eat a scary monster he decides to call himself sweet and not scary.
My daughter is sheltered from crap in the world, so I had to explain why he would put bugs eyeballs in a stew and why some creatures like to eat other creatures. I totally understand that some parents will think it's fun and that kids will like it, but we didn't. It doesn't even flow nicely. My daughter looked a bit miffed and it's not a book we'll pick up again.
