“…The text is enhanced by colorful illustrations on each page that depict Mixter and the barnyard animals. Mixter’s behavior and appearance are frightening enough to show he’s a monster, but his cute name and quirky stylized speech add a fun element that makes him safe for children. The story teaches a lesson about the loneliness that comes with bullying behavior, and vegans can find another lesson in the book, as well.
Parents and teachers will enjoy the morals in the book, in addition to the clever wordplay. Children will love the artwork and tongue-twisting adventures of this little monster who needs to be taught right from wrong.” – MyShelf.com
“The eye-catching illustrations will capture and hold the audience, while its text tugs the heart and makes one think. A glimpse into careless, selfish behaviors can be clearly seen, while hope for recovery bursts onto the scene. Love may just be the soft little thing that can turn this mischievous imp from being so mean! This is a great story to build powerful foundations of kindness and empathy, while warding off selfish behavior. (Ages 4-7)” – Darleen Wohlfeil, Story Monsters Inc. October 2018 issue
