Ethan and Emma are forced to share the same monster, Gabe, because of Emma's bravery. That is, until...

This book was cute. It showed that not only is everyone afraid of something, but it's important to brave, like Emma with each of the first three monsters. However, I think it was odd that this little girl wasn't afraid of a single, scary, larger monster, but the one the resembles her the most: a little "girl". ( )

This was great fun to read with my sons as they related to the sibling story. The idea is clever and the beautiful illustrations are remarkably engaging. ( )

This story is so incredibly imaginative, and adorable to read. This would be a very engaging and enjoyable book to read for fun to your class, but it could also be used for teaching children about perspective - how some people may interpret the same information differently - like how the monsters thought what they were doing was scary, but in reality, Ethan's little sister was more amused by the monsters, and thought they wanted to play with her instead of trying to scare her. All in all, a great, hilarious story that sheds a more positive light on the "monsters under our beds". ( )

A delightful read during halloween time, also an awesome book to introduce character studies. Each monster has very defined characteristic, so you could even break up the class into groups, and have each group describe one of the monsters. ( )

I need my monster was a surprise hit for me, and many others, and several years later the author revisits the delightful story.

When Ethan checks under the bed for his monster, as usual, he's shocked to find a note and a missing monster. How could anybody else need his monster more than him? Well, it turns out his annoying little sister Emma just can't stay in her bed - and she needs a monster to keep her there. But is Ethan's monster the right choice?

As different monsters try to scare naughty Emma into bed, kids will giggle along with the joke and gasp at each scary monster as they turn out to be not-so-scary after all. Will Emma ever find HER monster?

McWilliam's digital art is just as glowing, fun and cinematic as in the original book. The silly monsters are both fuzzy and terrifying, with lots of horns, scales, claws and drool as well as grouchy and annoyed expressions when Emma doesn't find them scary!

Verdict: A delightful sequel, perfect for kids who are worried about the monster under the bed or who have siblings. Or just for fun! Recommended.
