Title: Taming Your Pet Monster: An Operational Guide

Author: Scott Gordon
Publisher/Date Published: S.E. Gordon/July 5, 2012
Source: Kindle Cloud Reader, bought, Amazon

Goodreads Summary:
The craziest user guide you'll ever read! Written for mommies and daddies just as much as their children, Taming Your Pet Monster is filled with laugh-out-loud humor and bizarre situations. Witty, colorful and unique, this is one wacky ride you'll never forget!

Mikey's Take:  

This was  a really funny book with lots of colors, especially my favorite color, green in it.    I liked the picture of the explosion a lot.  It was neat how it made you think you could really buy a pet monster.  
I did have trouble with some of the words and I wasn't sure what some of them meant.  I am glad I had my mom reading it to me and my baby brother so she could explain some of the definitions to us.  
But this book really made me laugh a lot and I almost wish I could order my very own TP-6 monster.  

I gave this book 4 smiley faces!


  1. Hi Amy and the gang! I'm visiting from Mother Daughter Book Reviews and I'm really impressed by your website. You kids are doing such a great job sharing what you think about books. Since you enjoyed Taming Your Pet Monster so much, I might have to get that one for my son (he's 5). I think he would really like it too! I'm following you via FB, Networked Blogs, GFC, and email. Have a wonderful week, Renee

    1. Thank you Renee. It is actually a lot of fun getting them to participate in the blogging. Plus I am hoping when they have to do more book reports they will not fuss as much lol

  2. I nominated your for the Versatile Blog Award.
