My Monster Burrufu - Children's Book Review & Giveaway

Ashton loves to read so we're always on the look out for great books for him to read.  I was recently contacted by Alberto Corral an animator at Dreamworks Animation and has worked on movies such as "Kung Fun Panda 2" and "Shrek Forever After".  He recently wrote a wonderful book entitled "My Monster Burrufu".  Recommended for ages 8-12, this amusing story is 83 pages long, which is perfect for the intermediate reader.  


My Monster Burrufu is about a young girl that moves out of the big city and into a big home in the country.  This friendly young girl stumbles upon a new friend in the attic of her new home.  Her father has always told her monsters are good luck so she tries with all her might to befriend a reclusive monster who just wants to be left alone to write his stories and nibble on his stolen chocolate chip cookies.  
Full of beautiful, black and white illustrations, My Monster Burrufu even has increases and decreases in font size to indicate where to whisper and when to let it all out!  This is a great book to use your silliest voices with!  You and your child will love reading this together time and time again!  This great story teaches an important lesson: Don't judge a monster by the way he looks, he could turn out to be your best friend; it's what's inside that counts!  That's a lesson children & adults can use!


If you're interested in picking up a copy of My Monster Burrufu you can purchase your own copy on Amazon for only $9.85!  You can also find more information on this wonderful story by becoming a fan on Facebook!
