Inappropriate Language for Age Range
Reviewed in the United States on August 23, 2018
If you are considering purchasing this book for a child who is in the amazon recommended "Age Range: 4 - 8 years" READ THIS REVIEW BEFORE BUYING. I bought this book for my 5 year old son based on the story: a young boy dresses like a ninja, takes on his fear of the monster in the closet and makes friends with the monster. This book certainly delivered the very simple story, but it also delivered something I was not expecting.
When the boy is trying to capture the monster, the book describes how the monster becomes scared, "AND RIPS A MASSIVE F*RT!" Yes, it actually has that word in the book in huge letters, with these five quoted words taking up an entire page. I try to keep my son from using words like those at home in order to keep him from using those kind of words away from home. Thank goodness I read the book first before I read it to him.
In my opinion, this book would be good for a teenager, NOT for the recommended "Age Range: 4 - 8 years, Grade Level: 1 - 3" in amazon's product description. Your mileage may vary, and that's fine, but I wish a review had existed to warn me before I bought this book.
