The kids loved the monster and it leant itself well to reading aloud in funny voices. I loved the library setting. ( )

"Books sound so much better than they taste!"
Oskar and Theodore experience a disturbance on their reading.. A monster is loose in the library!

This book is about two brothers who go to the library on Saturday mornings. One day, they hear a very loud noise that disrupts their reading time. It was green monsters who were destroying the library because they thought it was a bad restaurant. The librarian helped the monsters out and read them a story. One of the brothers gives the monsters donuts that settle them down. He knew that monsters love donuts because he previously had read them in a book. This book teaches kids that libraries are meant to keep quiet and that reading books can be handy and gives people more knowledge on certain things. ( )

A pair of brothers (or brother and monster?) go to the library with their dad, but their day is disrupted by a many-headed monster who, upon finding books not delicious, wants to eat them instead. They distract it with donuts and explain that books are for reading, not eating ("WHAT? You mean this whole restaurant is filled with things we can't eat?!!"). ( )

This is a book about a boy named Oskar and his bear friend Theodore go to the library to find a good book to read. While they are there they have to deal with a multiple-headed monster that is destroying the library disrupting their quiet reading space and wanting to eat donuts. This is a fairly good book because of the personification that was shown through Theodore the bear and his ultimate desire to read and eat his donuts in peace. ( )
