    1. I had a very love/hate relationship with The Muppets in my early youth. I really, really liked watching "The Muppet Show" and "Sesame Street". They were two of my favorite shows, and I still hold both in high regard. However, every now and then and completely out of nowhere, a Muppet would do something that genuinely terrified me. For example, I really hated that old "Sesame" sketch when a couple of mild-mannered puppets would calmly take turns whispering words that rhymed to a gently jazzy beat [...]

    2. This was one of my all-time favorite books when I was a kid. In the story, Grover begs the reader to stop turning pages because each page brings us closer to a monster at the end of the book, and Grover is afraid of monsters. He tries to nail the pages shut, he tries to tie the pages down, he even builds a brick wall. But somehow the reader always turns the page. My mother used to read this book to me, and she was great at doing funny voices. I remember laughing so hard as she acted out Grover b [...]

    3. This book was a childhood favorite of mine, and I suspect that my love of metafiction stems from this book. However, as an adult I find this book to be slightly sadistic. Grover BEGS you to not turn the page in order to keep from reaching the monster that will be found on the final page ((view spoiler)[The monster turns out to be 'lovable furry old' Grover himself (hide spoiler)]), building brick walls and such to thwart your progress. However, the fun is laughing at Grover as you ignore his ple [...]

    4. ‘Oh great,’ you’re thinking, ‘another witty endeavor where a Goodreader reflects back on a childhood favorite. Oh joy.'Well, suck it up and deal.A-hem… While rifling through the book section at my local Goodwill; I came across this little gem. Copyright 1980, Little Golden Books® edition complete with all our favorite characters outlining the back cover… The Tawny Scrawny Lion, Tootle, The Poky Little Puppy… that famous gold-foil binding (seriously, it says so… right on the back [...]

    5. "I . . . am the monster" Grover Monster This is probably one of the most profound statements in literary history to date. Today, there are hundreds of books, films and television shows which address man's incapacity to negotiate his own darkness. In many variations of the tale, we see the darkness within projected outward, cast onto another real or imagined character. Stephen King's Secret Window, even the latest season of Dexter reacquaints us with this age-old phenomenon, but never have they [...]

    6. This book starts out great! I love Grover.The problem is that Grover asks you to not turn any more pages, because of his belief that there is a monster at the end of the book. I decided to honor Grover's wish.Oh, I turned a few pages. But when Grover took the time to tie all the pages together to discourage me from turning any more, well, I just didn't have the heart to go on. The little guy was really scared. But I can't help but think.e all monsters necessarily bad? You know it's funny - one c [...]

    7. Top 8 Most Shocking Twists In Literature8. Wasp Factory by Iain Banks7. We Have Always Lived In The Castle by Shirley jackson6. The Castle by Kafka (Twist ending: the guy dies! No, not that guy. Kafka.)5. The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie4. Money: A Suicide Note by Martin Amis3. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte (Reader, you what? Why?)2. Borges, especially most of The Aleph1. This right here, which dials up the meta to post-Borgesian levels. Mind-blowing!Warning: do not read GR descrip [...]

    8. This is a book that I read hundreds of times to my kids. It is so much fun! But, as a Gran, what I really love is hearing my daughter read it to her little boy with the same voices and inflections I used when I read it to her. Generations of readers!😊

    9. We are the monster we fear.We are also the monster that induces fear in others, sometimes by an act as simple as turning a page.The reader is the author of meaning.Simply existing and acting causes ripples in the realities of others which we are incapable of comprehending.When you pick up a stone, the earth is lighter. When you turn the page, you are one moment closer to your own death. Not turning the page will not make the monster at the end of this book dissapear either, he will never go away [...]

    10. I do an ass kicking impersonation of Grover. Just ask my kids. Actually, I can do any of the Muppets voiced by Frank Oz -- Miss Piggy, Fozzie, Sam the Eagle, Cookie Monster, Bert, even Yoda (which is my son's fave), but Grover is my best.So when I was looking for a book for my little Scoutie a couple of months ago, something that I could hide away and save for just her and me, and I stumbled upon a little board book version of this Little Golden Book classic, I had to have it. I'd forgotten all [...]

    11. (4/23/09) I saw a quote from this book on my friend Misha's profile last night and a flood of good feelings came rushing over me. While I don't remember the specifics of the story (other than the surprise ending!), I do remember reading it a hundred thousand times. I remember the golden spine, a different texture than the rest of the hard cover. I remember, that maybe, years later, the dog chewed the corner. And I remember loving this book a lot.Funny, as I think about it now, I wonder why I've [...]

    12. You haven't really read this until you've read it over thirty times in three days to a six year old with severely violent tendencies due to autism.

    13. What can i say? Classics never die! It's time to be a kid again. The first time i read this book i was 8 years old, it was a birthday present from my parents, i was so happy because i loved Sesame Street, Who doesn't love S.S when they are kids right? The most amazing thing about this book is that Grover is trying to stop us from reaching the end of the book, where he knows there is a monster and when we are kids we love to be scared because deep down, we know we are in no real danger. So we tur [...]

    14. This is my youngest daughter’s “most favoritest book” and to be honest, it is a joy to read it with her… every night… until she finds another favoritest book.

    15. Such fun to read. I loved this as a child and my kids enjoy this too. One you can read over and over.

    16. This book is perfect for your 2-4 year old. It gives your child permission to disobey important instructions from cute, loveable Grover (who could whoop Elmo in a Sesame street fight). The book grabs your attention from the very first line, with Grover teasing your child's curiosity about a potential monster at the end of the book, all the while begging your child NOT to turn the page. And yet we encourage the child to do it anyway. This "cute-for-now" moment will be stored in your child's memor [...]

    17. I am impatiently anticipating the exciting moment when I can read this book aloud to my daughter. One of my favorites of the many Golden Books that I cherished as a kid, "The Monster at the End of this Book" by Jon Stone is a perfect, fun little story that taught me the joys of suspense and patience, as my mother used to gleefully take her time turning the pages, while I wiggled with joyous excitement until the last page which, of course (***spoiler alert!***), revealed that the monster was none [...]

    18. This is absolutely my favorite book of all time. I really can't remember when I first read it so I just guessed. I have always loved Grover as long as I can remember. It is such a clever and fun book, and while it does kind of play on kids' little rebellious streaks (turning the pages when Grover is trying everything in his power to get the reader not to), it also incites kids to keep reading all the way to the end, to finish what you start, to foster a healthy sense of curiosity, and even to no [...]

    19. I read this book to my children when they were young. It is very funny. The whole book is basically Grover trying to stop you from getting to the end of the book because there is a monster there and he is afraid of monsters. I remember my girls giggling every time they turned a page and ruined his plans to stop them. :)

    20. This was the very first book I ever bought with my own money, me being the age of seven, and I remember the whole event as being almost frighteningly grown-up, to actually buy a book. I also annoyed the crap out of my parents by making them read it to me repeatedly. Loved it at the time.

    21. This was already one of my most favorite books in the entire world.Then I used it to close a monster-themed storytime (10/10/17).When I finished the book, a rapt four-year-old boy in the audience yelled, "READ THAT AGAIN!"<3 <3 <3Best librarian moment ever.

    22. Tonight my niece went old school. She wanted the old Golden Books. This was a cute fun little book. Don't turn the Page. Good for preschool age.

    23. This was my youngest sisters favorite book when she was little. She is 5 years younger than me, so when she was born I was fascinated by her and wanted to help my Mom take care of her. I must have read this book to her a 1000 times or more, she never got tired of it. Saw it on and just had to buy it. Awesome book!

    24. It feels a little bit goofy to rate a Little Golden Book as five stars, but The Monster at the End of this Book, written by Jon Stone is just that adorable. Grover Monster from Sesame Street is at his endearing best as he does his very best (despite great trepidation on his part) to protect the reader from the scary monster at the end of the book. Pages come alive as Grover hides inside the binding and behind torn pages when things get too scary for poor little Grover to handle by himself. Child [...]

    25. In A Farewell to Arms, Hemingway stated that life seeks to break everyone and those whom it cannot break, it kills. In The Monster at the End of this Book, we find loveable, furry Grover faced with the challenge of a life that is out to break him down at all costs. From the title page on, the reader understands that living is a constant challenge for the friendly blue muppet with the gruff but sensitive voice, and sympathy and respect develop instantly for a character who refuses to capitulate h [...]

    26. One of my favorite books as a child and now the same for my children. A great idea for a plot with our favorite lovable characters. I do like the first book a little better than the second one, but still worth the read!

    27. Both my boys LOVED this book. The youngest one would literally begin vibrating with excitement as that last page drew nearer and nearer.
