So fun! This reminds me of The Monster at the End of This Book or Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, both silly classics that can't help but make kids giggle. In this one, the instruction is clear: don't push the button! But of course, who can help it? Every time the "button" is pressed (or the page is turned) something unexpected happens. The "monster" in the book (named Larry) changes colour, or gains stripes, or multiplies. Of course there isn't a real button, just a picture of one, but that's half the fun. On the other hand, my daughter and I did happen to receive a digital review copy of this book which we read on the computer, so there sort of was a button to press. Like I said, SO FUN!
