My Monster Burrufu – Alberto Corral

Publisher:  Petite Grande Idee
Pages:  102
Source:  Review Copy from Author
Genre: Juvenile Children’s fantasy

Seven-year-old Olivia has just moved to a new house—the same house where a lonely monster named Burrufu lives hidden in a secret attic. One night, unable to resist the smell of delicious cookies, Burrufu sneaks out and is discovered by Olivia. The two soon learn that you can find friendship in the most unexpected places.

My thoughts:
I absolutely loved this book.  I had planned on reading it and sending it to a teacher for her classroom.  She is trying to build up a classroom library.  I have held onto the book  for quite a while.  I’ve re-read it three times.

Olivia has so much love in her heart.  When she discovers a monster living in her attic she decides to make him her friend.  He is too busy writing books to be her friend.  She keeps visiting him until she wins him over.  Now all she has to do is convince the world that he is okay. 

What wonderful lessons about learning about those who are different than yourself.  The illustrations were wonderful.  I think this would
make a wonderful children’s movie.  I highly recommend this parents and children every where.
