Monster Needs a Costume reviews:
"...Given the jaunty flow of the story and the humorous details on every page, put this at the top of the list for unscary options come October." Kirkus Reviews

"The rhymes, quite obviously, are bouncy and irreverent, and just as much heck is raised by Grieb’s cartoony illustrations of the enormous, blue, horned beast with the happy underbite..." Booklist
