Format: Paperback
I really liked this book because it was about a little girl who liked telling stories, and when she met a monster at her school, he did too! I think that Jacqueline Wilson is really good at describing her ideas. I think that the idea was good and I think that it is a funny little story because things that you could only imagine, are real in Monster world, like money growing on trees.This book is mainly for younger readers because the vocabulary is simple and so is the story, but I think that older readers,like myself will find it a nice, easy, pleasant read.

I bought this for my son who is 7 and a little bit "behind" in his reading ( compared to the majority of his class)he also dislikes fiction books generally (unless it is Roald Dahl). I remembered reading this with one of my older children at about my son's age and that they had easily managed to read and enjoy it.

My son thoroughly enjoyed this book - it is proper paperback size with chapters but nice large print, thick creamy pages (which some dyslexia specialists think helps)and very cute illustrations. At first he wanted me to read it - he was a bit frightened that it was a proper book but he soon took it off me and started to read it himself.
It is a very engaging tale of a young girl who tells tales to outdo the boasting of what her school mates got up to at weekend ( a forerunner of Tracey Beaker perhaps?) and tells tales to the teacher and gets in trouble. She meets a very small alien who has bunked school to come to earth for fun and who magically transforms her into his size and takes her to see his planet and then brings her back where she retells her adventure to her classmates. A storyteller comes to class that afternoon (basically jacqueline herself)and starts to tell a story which lo and behold is our heroines story!
My son didn't really like this ending, but he really liked the alien and the naughtiness of the children. He was also very proud of the fact he had read a proper chapter book with no difficulty - result!

The Monster Story Teller is a excellent book to read. Natalie and the Monster are the main characters in this exciting story. Natalie is up to mischief all the time but I don't like her when she's naughty, although it's extremely funny! Another character in the book is Mr Hunter. He is a mean and grumpy character! The story takes place at St Marys School and on Monster Planet. It's about a girl who makes friends with a monster and after a half hour sleep she finds herself on Monster Planet !!!! My favourite part of the story was when Natalie met the Monster. This book is very funny and exciting. I like the way the author wrote the book because it's extremely funny. Here are some interesting words the author used: `stupendous' and `mascot'. I would recommend this book because it is a great book to read but watch out for the twist at the end!!!!! (You have been warned!)

"The Monster Story-Teller" is about story telling and monsters.

The main character of the story is Natalie who is bored so tells stories. Then she meets a tiny monster who has his own flying saucer and they go on an adventure together. This gives Natalie another story to tell, which doesn't seem to impress her teacher, but does impress the visiting story-teller.

A decent story written in easy language and big text for early readers. There are plenty of black and white illustrations (we were reading an older edition, not the colour one) including those showing the story-teller character who just so happens to look like the author, Jacqueline Wilson.

Both my nearly 4-year-old and nearly 8-year-old enjoyed it as I read it with them.

An Early Reader from Wilson and Sharratt. I read it to my son, who is only just beginning to read, and he wanted the whole thing in one bedtime.

Natalie finds her friends have all had great weekends, starts telling lies about hers but later at school finds a tiny alien on a plant pot. He takes her off to his home planet where she has an exciting time and returns back to school in time for a special Storytime visitor (recognise her, anyone?!) who loves her tales.

Aliens always go down well in my house and the flight of fancy was very enjoyable. We loved the alien's money tree, milkshake fountain, alien pet shop - could have come directly from a child's imagination.

Short enough for a bedtime read, but long enough for a solo reader to gain confidence and enjoy a good story.

I recommend this story for all children over the age of 4. It is a great book and if you like causing trouble at school this book is definitely designed for you.
Jacqueline Wilson is a great story teller all her books are great!
