    In a handy step-by-step format, readers find out the dangers and difficulties of potty training a monster. You have to make sure your monster is ready (most should be 7 feet tall). You have to get him a giant potty chair because he is too big for the normal toilet. And the book ends with the joys of monster underwear as an incentive. Parents will immediately see that this book is about children being potty trained, but children may be too caught up in the monster humor to feel any pressure themselves. The tone here is just right, allowing children to laugh about learning to use the potty. The humor is physical, potty humor that all children will hoot about. The unexpected twists and turns in potty training are showed to monstrous proportions and great effect. Moon’s illustrations bring to life a bright-colored menagerie of monsters with silly befitting names. Their google-eyed furriness is much more funny than frightening.A great example of a potty book that is not saccharine or dull. I’ve potty trained two monsters myself, so I know that every word here is true! Appropriate for 2-4 year olds. Older children will enjoy the humor and hopefully will not need the potty tips.

    This is a decent potty training book. It is silly and goes through the steps to train.

    I'm a little ambivalent as to how to rate How to Potty Train Your Monster. I checked it out for the kids expecting that it would be a book that would make them laugh and guffaw. I thought this would be a comedy. But that's not what reading this book to them was like. The kids were so serious while I read this story to them! I half expected to look up and see them taking notes like they were preparing for a college entrance exam! Not one chuckle, not one giggle, not even one smile, but intense focus in spades! I am pretty sure that they really liked this story, because they did take the book home with them to read at bedtime. But I really didn't realize that I was checking out what seems to be the equivalent of Albert Einstein's Relativity: The Special and the General Theory for them! I guess potty training is a more serious subject than I thought!

    This is obviously a potty training book. However, this book pretends that the young child is potty training a monster. Well, the kid thinks that is what is happening. In reality, the parent is potty training the young child, who in this book is called a monster. Did that make sense?Either way, Jill thinks the illustrations are hilarious.This was one of the books we got from the library back when we were potty training Jill, and now that we are acclimating Danny to the potty idea, we got it again. Jill likes it a lot more than Danny. I think it is just is too much for his age level. I mean, he likes to "roar" with the monsters, but he doesn't really get it like Jill does now. And, looking back, I don't think Jill really got it back then either.If you're looking for a book that will make you crack a smile as the parent and make your children giggle (but possibly for different reasons!), then this is a good book.

    Funny book to read out loud to your child. Each page tells you what 'not' to do with your 400 to 600 year old monster. My special needs adult son and I giggled and smiled through out this book.

    I found this book at the library book sale and knew it would be perfect for my son. He is curious about the potty but we haven't started potty training him yet. This is a great way to introduce the idea of potty training to a toddler/preschooler. The book features brightly colorful funny-looking monsters who are getting rid of their diapers and learning (with their parents) how to properly use the potty. It is well-done enough to be funny for parents and their children, which is convenient as you will most likely have to read this multiple times in the future. Recommended for ages 2-4, 5 stars.

    After I got tired of reading the kids I babysit Potty Time with Elmo for the 30th time, I got this book from the public library. The book was cute and had some good humor, but I think that it was a bit over the kids' ages due to its wordiness. In addition, it reads much like a parody of any how-to potty train manual, so it's more of a funny thing for the person reading it to the little kid. I enjoyed it about a four stars worth for this humor, but the kids probably enjoyed it about a two stars worth just because so much went over their heads.

    This book is a treat for both parent and child. The idea of getting your monster his own potty chair. (great, big , giant size, of course) cracks me up, as do the warnings throughout the book: "Never, ever leave your monster alone with a roll of toilet paper!" The art is funky, fresh and works well with the text, creating a stand-out book for a sit-down situation.

    Fun. . .Kelly DiPucchio is plain old fun. If you have enjoyed CLINK or ZOMBIE IN LOVE, go back and take a look at this title from 2009. I am sure that this could be used as a springboard to a conversation with younger readers about potty training, but the illustrations and asides are a hoot. Kelly is a Michigander, and I think she has a bright, bright future in picture books for children.

    Pretty laugh-out-loud funny! Random warnings about the risks of potty training your monster include: Do not attempt to potty train your monster until he is between 200 and 400 years old.Never leave him alone with a roll of toilet paper.If frustrated, your monster may throw things... like the bathtub.

    Super cute! We're struggling with potty training so I had to buy this for my monster loving two year old. This book offers great pointers for parents, entertainment for children and much needed laughs.

    A longer read for the younger set but definitely very cute. My youngest son, the one going through the potty training process, thinks the monsters are hilarious. He doesn't quite get all the humor but, as the parent, I sure do. That fact alone makes the constant re-reading worth it!

    I really don't remember putting this one on hold but hey... funny title. It is what it is. The Monster's Inc inspired monsters though are cute. I still have no memory of a) wanting to read it or b) putting it on hold at the library. But there it was. Hmmm.

    A funny book on how to potty train your monster (they need to be several hundred years old) with bright pictures. Though I put it on the monster shelf, it is really about potty training. I'm not sure how this would work as a read aloud to a class...might be interesting to find out.

    Very cute! Interesting that my daughter is not afraid of big teeth or five eyes. The rules are actually more useful for parents than kids.

    I read this book to my children more for myself than them in the midst of potty training.

    This is one of the best children's books I have ever read. My 4 year old granddaughter and I read it more than once at a setting.

    A funny story that my daughter enjoyed although the humor seemed more geared towards the parent readers.

    Excellent! Moon's art is sublime, and as a whole it's an interesting approach to potty training. Funny, adorable, off-kilter instead of sickeningly sweet and prim. Well done.

    This is such a cute book and I love the illustrations. I think it is a fun and different book to get your little one familiarized with learning how to use the potty.
