Fun story!

My 4 year old daughter as I listened to this on our commute to and from school and then in the way to the cabin! She loved it and could wait to get in the car to listen! Made the long ride so much more enjoyable! The story was fun, entertaining and silly. We love the Monster Inc. and Monster University movies so this was a huge hit! Got to love friendly monsters!!

My kids were hooked. The narrator’s accents are cringe worthy.

My kids were completely hooked and insisted on listening to the whole thing. Word of warning to adults, the narrator has the most awful hackneyed accents. Irish country, NY Bronx, and other portrayals all made my ears bleed.

FANTASTIC! A FAMILY FAVORITE!!!

All of my kiddos loved this audio book set. They asked to listen to it, or begged me to not turn it off. And in true audio book fashion, really encouraged them to use their imaginations. The only reason they ever wanted to stop listening was so they could act it out themselves and imagine traveling to the monster world or the monsters coming here and being able to help them.

Super cute

My kids loved this. They asked for it every time we got in the car. Short chapters that are easy and quick to get through. Two thumbs up!
