    The chaos caused by the monsters (more sensitive kids might get upset, I suppose, but my nieces don't) is done in a funny way, and the fact that the BIRTHDAY MONSTER CLEANING CREW! fixes everything at the end makes it all better. Very catchy text, really funny illustrations. Perfect for a kid's first or second birthday.

    A great birthday present for my one-year-old grandson--with Boynton's trademark fun and charming silliness. A great birthday present for my one-year-old grandson--with Boynton's trademark fun and charming silliness.

    Adam likened the new Queer Eye guys to the Birthday Monsters and the comparison is not totally off.

    Despite being a board book, it's got a plot! The monsters are a lot of fun, and my 1-year-old grandson just loves the book! (We did a bit of a monster theme for him...) I love Boynton and have for decades now, and this is a really fun addition to her board books for the little ones! Despite being a board book, it's got a plot!

    I need another copy of this book. I'm not a morning person, so my favorite lines are: Look, oh look - it's 6:08! Your present opening cannot wait They rush you down before you're ready, and use your breakfast as confetti. I need another copy of this book.

    I read this for my baby storytime this week. While I do love Boyton and her monsters, I found the book a little long for my audience. Most of her books are easily accessible for many ages, so I was a little disappointed to find that this didn't allow for the youngest readers. I suppose if you have a little one who is extremely willing to sit still, then this wouldn't be an issue, but I doubt that it is common. Still a fun book, but not recommended for the youngest readers. For: lovers of Boynton I read this for my baby storytime this week.

    This book's art style is bright and captivating. The rhyming and repetition of words keeps the thirteen month old constantly waddling over to the shelf to pick this one specifically. The physical book is small enough for infant hands to grab and the pages are thick and stiff enough for baby to turn on their own. Each page keeps the same rhyme scheme and meter.

The cake is larger, and the kid has more presents than before. The steady rhythm makes it easy to reread.

    I won't lie. My two year old was pretty upset by this book almost every time we read it. The injustice of the birthday monsters doing all that they did was just too much for his little brain and heart to handle. We had to make sure to really emphasize that it all turns out alright in the end. But definitely our least favorite book so far from Boynton. Maybe later down the road he'll like it more..... but probably not lol. I won't lie. My two year old was pretty upset by this book almost every time we read it.

    One of the few baby books that amuses me every time I read it. More importantly, my babies seem to like it.

    I definitely won't mind reading this again or ten more times if she asks. The rhyming is fun and the pictures are cute. I definitely won't mind reading this again or ten more times if she asks. The rhyming is fun and the pictures are cute.

    Sandra Boynton brings us yet another snappy, silly book of hilarity for preschoolers. This is a fantasy about waking up on your birthday and finding that a group of cheerful monsters have arrived to give a party. They do all the things that bad party guests do: Arrive too early, give self-serving gifts, cheat at games, eat up the cake, and make a big mess. But it's all in fun: they return to tidy the mess and replace the gifts and cake. Preschoolers will love the rhythmic, crisp way this story is Sandra Boynton brings us yet another snappy, silly book of hilarity for preschoolers.

And it's actually funny enough that you might not be tempted to hide it on a high shelf after a few dozen readings.

    This book is about a young boy who is having a birthday, but the birthday monsters come and make his home a mess, take his presents, eat his cake, and then leave his home a mess. At the end of the book the monsters come back and un-do all the bad things they had done. The story is cute in a way, but I used it to teach the boy that I was reading to that he needed to ask people to respect his belongings. The theme of this book could be best described as respecting others.

    It's your birthday! Watch out for the birthday monsters! They like to generally make a mess, but we can always hope they'll leave things in good condition for your special day. This one was really colorful and imaginative, featuring lots of monsters rather than the usual familiar creatures, but there was something about it that we (the reader[s] and readee) just didn't love as much as some of the others. Maybe once birthdays are more important to The Boy he'll like it better, but in the meantime It's your birthday! Watch out for the birthday monsters!

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Yes, I checked the spoiler warning box for this review! It feels a little silly, but I can't honestly talk about what I didn't like without spoiling the story. So sue me. :P I didn't like this one very much at all until the last 2-3 pages or so. It's a little too intense for a board book, IMHO -- these monsters are MEAN! At least until they come back to clean things up and replace the cake and presents.

    This reminds me of my sisters who called me at work one day and they let me know that the Birthday Monsters were at my house. They only did the cleaning part. Kids love this book and it's so creative. I love when I read this to my nephew William that he does the knocks for me as I read.

    Libby gets so excited when we read "There's nothing more that could go wrong... and then Knock Knock and then Ding Dong." Possibly my favorie Boynton. But I love them all. Funny for me and my 1 year old. Libby gets so excited when we read "There's nothing more that could go wrong... and then Knock Knock and then Ding Dong." Possibly my favorie Boynton.

    24 months - Found at Goodwill for $1 right about the time of O's 2nd birthday. Not the best of Boynton but it's ok and it's nice to have something birthday related when that time of year comes round.... and hey, the price was right! 24 months - Found at Goodwill for $1 right about the time of O's 2nd birthday.

    I read this book on my birthday-first thing in the morning. As a working parent, who is also a graduate student, with little time, but wants to start his birthday on the right foot, there is nothing like reading Sandra Boynton.

    I like this because the rhyme scheme is good, you can read the last few pages in a big hurry once you have the thing memorized, and the Birthday Monsters clean up after themselves. I don't like this because it endorses using breakfast as confetti, which we do not do in our house.

    Not as funny as some of her other titles. In fact, the way the monsters make a mess of things reminded me of Cat in the Hat, which I don't like just for that reason. But the ending makes up for it. Not as funny as some of her other titles. In fact, the way the monsters make a mess of things reminded me of Cat in the Hat, which I don't like just for that reason.

    This book is a really fun book for children to read. I think that it is not a book necessarily to read to your classroom but definitely one to have in your mini classroom library. It can get kids laughing and in a great mood.

    I have read lots of Boynton books. I really enjoy her style and creative stories. This is not one of the best books, but I still really enjoyed reading it with my girls. Personally I would like the birthday clean up crew best!

    Can't go wrong with Sandra Boynton. My son received this book as a third birthday present and enjoys it. He actually seemed a little distressed by all the problems the monsters were causing, but he was satisfied by the ending. Can't go wrong with Sandra Boynton.
