I never write reviews on Amazon but I recently discovered my monster (from this book) plush. I'm 21 now and I LOVED this book when I was little and if I'm honest I'm tempted to get it again now! If you have little ones this is a great book for them, it's lovely. And if they happen to have a fear of monsters this is perfect, sometimes the monsters are scared too and just want a friend :)

5.0 out of 5 stars This book solved all of our "scary" issues. 5 Nov. 1999
By E. Woods - Published on
Format: Library Binding
I am really shocked. I have tried book after book to help my 4 year old daughter get over the fear of monsters in her room. I decided to give Maggie and the Monster a try. It looked cute and sounded helpful. This book is an unbelievable tool. I can't believe it. We have had the book a week and my daughter hasn't not cried or complained that their are monsters in her room since. She loves the story and says it is her favorite book. She carries it with her everywhere. What a delightful story that shows the child with a little encouragement from mom, she can solve her own problems and feel good about it in the end. Very empowering for children. I am so thankful for this story. I still can't get over the confidence it helped my daughter gain. I HIGHLY recommend this book for anyone but especially for children with nightime fears. My seven year old son even thought the story was funny and entertaining. He wants to borrow it to share with his class.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gives children the power over their fear of monsters!! 10 Jan. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Library Binding
This book, hands down, has been all three of my childrens favorite! It tremendously helped calm the inevitable fear of monsters in the bedroom. Maggie showed no fear in telling that monster to get out of her room, yet had no trouble rolling over and going to sleep when it refused to leave. She handled the problem on her own,with reassurance from her mother. This book was the best help I could have had when each of my kids reached the stage when they needed to learn that they had the power!(It also inspired me to name my third child Maggie!!)
5.0 out of 5 stars a monster-friendly book 15 Aug. 2007

Format: Hardcover
i loved this book the instant i read it. it's perfect for children who are afraid of monsters. maggie is a brave little girl who takes matters into her own hands and helps a little monster find her mother. tomie de paola's illustrations are simple and fun. it's a great preschool book--- not a lot of text, not too long, easy to read, with a satisfying end. my kids love it, too.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! 16 Jun. 2010

Format: Hardcover
This is a wonderful little book! Not only does it help to squelch monster fears in a sweet way (priceless!) but it is simple enough for an older sibling (ie, 1st grader) to read the book to the younger ones. The mother/daughter monster duo is adorable...guaranteed smiles!

I already loved it and gave this copy with a monster (designed to look like the one in the book) to my granddaughter). She asks her mother to read her the book often.
