Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent book to read to toddlers I have given this book many many times as a gift. It is so much fun to read out loud and exaggerate the words and actions on the pages. Even though Grover is a throwback to an earlier generation who knew Sesame Street, the book is a time-tested gem for the young set. My granddaughter who is now a teenager, still laughs whenever she simply sees the cover !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grover! Love you! This book has been around for a long time, I remember my 26 year old daughter getting it when she was a toddler, and laugh and laugh she did when we would read it. Grover was always a favourite of mine from the beginning, and held such worries and feelings I felt closer to him than most of the other Sesame family, and I am so glad this book helped share Grover with my children and recognize how silly, funny and really Grover could be!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spoiler Alert! There's is no monster at the end of this book. They are lying! I love this book. It is so adorable. Even as a adult I have this book and will not give it away when my friends kids comes over and reads it and wants to take it home. It's mine! mine! mine! lol I have a personal memory with this book so I was so glad when I saw you had it. Note to all the adults when you are reading this book. One way I do it, when I read it to a bunch of kids. I ask for a volunteer to help me turn the page. It is so cute some of them will be too afraid to help turn the page lol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Childhood Memories I remember the suspence I used to feel every night at bedtime when my mommy and I would cuddle up in bed together and read "The Monster At The End Of This Book." It must have made a huge impact on my life considering about 15 years later, I am still searching for it to read to my little two year old girl, Amber. Well, I have finally found it. For sure, the next chance I get to go out, I wil be taking a trip to Chapters, who have finally ended my search for old childhood memories I can now share with my baby. Thank you Jon Stone, Michael Smollin, Chapters, and of course, Mom.
