The ASHA Leader, "There's a Book for That!" - Shari Robertson

"“Monsters Can Mosey,” by Gillia Olson – chock-full of juicy CCSS Tier II verbs and adjectives – features Freddy (a female monster) and her mom exploring ways Freddy might participate in the annual holiday parade. Check out these active verbs: lurch, slither, glide, trudge, prance, prowl, clomp, lumber, ooze, tiptoe, march, strut and stomp. And these exciting adjectives: scary, unnerving, spooky, creepy, horrifying, frightening, terrifying. And that’s just a small taste." - The ASHA Leader, "There's a Book for That!"

School Library Journal - Kari Allen, National Writing Project in New Hampshire, Plymouth State University

"It’s not often that a series can introduce key concepts and be entertaining at the same time, yet this collection does just that. From Monsters, where a monster tries to figure out the best way she should walk (should she prowl, glide, or lumber?), to whatever, in which a boy speaks without punctuation and therefore no emotion, these books amuse and teach. . . .A standout series." - School Library Journal
