Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book for kiddos new to undies! Overall this book was cute. Quick fun read. My son is new to being in underwear 24/7 and already has a favorite pair so this was perfect for him. The simple illustrations and use of few colors definitely remind me of some Dr.Seuss books like How The Grinch Stole Christmas.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Crankenstein:"Berger...has a well-honed sense of comic timing that little kids find hilarious, and Crankenstein, with its many exclamation marks, growls and grumbles should unleash the actor in any adult kind enough to read it aloud." -- New York Times"Expect many re-read requests from Crankensteins who may (or may not) recognize themselves." -- Publishers Weekly"Will the creature ever turn from "MEHHRRRR!" to merry? Youngsters will roar along with Crankenstein through this silly and sympathetic story of grumpy-grouchies."-- School Library Journal"Whoa. Be prepared for the intense frustrations, the moody outbursts and the green scowls of Crankenstein...Each setting reveals sly comic elements that both kids and their grown-ups will appreciate. Readers will laugh out loud...Get ready to read this aloud a lot. " -- Kirkus Reviews"Sometimes-when you have to go to school, when you have to take cough syrup-all there is to say is "MEHHRRRR!"... This is a No, David! for slightly older kids..." -- Horn BookPraise for Snoozefest:"Preschoolers will love the sleep-tailored diction ('naptacular'; 'tire-riffic') and rollicking verse, such as this description of a critical component: 'Some of the blankets are in mint condition. / Others collectible, rare, first edition. / Some are so old, theyâ??re all tattered and torn. / This sloth has had hers since the day she was born.' No snoozefest here -- great fun." -- Kirkus"This knowing, affectionate spoof of music festivals is fresh and timely." -- Publishers Weekly
