eBook: Boom! Boom! Boom! The Upstairs Monster

Boom! Boom! Boom! The Upstairs Monster by S. Auyeung

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The blurb: What’s that mysterious noise upstairs? Take a magical journey through vivid illustrations and a heartwarming story that leads to a beautiful discovery of friendship.

My review: This is a picture book for younger children, who are starting to read by themselves or are enjoying some reading time with a parent, grandparent or guardian.

The author has produced a book of images and wording that fit together. The child in the story will encourage young readers to not fear the noises they hear from upstairs, or outside, and instead voice any concerns to a parent for investigation and reassurance.

I particularly liked how the mother in the story treated the child’s concern. She didn’t add to the child’s worry, but encouraged him to confront it and discover for himself what was happening whilst knowing his mum would be right there with him.

The book is a quick, easy read and could be read at any time without causing stress or fear to the reader. The images are large and colourful too. I believe the book would be well received by any child under the age of around 6 or 7 years of age.

I received a review copy of this book, and this is an honest review.
