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 Monster Burrufu’ is a story of overcoming fear, a curse,
and a most unusual monster who learns from a little girl how to trust his heart.
I was so excited to read this book. I thought that the cover art for this book was adorable. I was excited to discover that this book had many great pictures in it. The illustrations are so cute and have so much personality. Alessandra Sorrentino did an amazing job with pictures. With the amazing pictures and fabulous writing, I loved reading My Monster Burrufu!
The main character in this book, a little girl named Olivia was so cute! She is hyper, happy little girl with a great love of cookies. In a majority of the book, Olivia has cookies with her. I love how developed the character is. By the end of the book, I felt like I really knew Olivia. A major reason for this is the great writing by the author, Alberto Corral.
One of the main lessons from this book is to not judge a person or a monster by its outside. In the book, Olivia meets a monster named Burrufu who lives in her attic. Burrufu does not like being around people because he is afraid of scaring them. This has also made Burrufu very grumpy. Olivia accepts Burrufu for who he is and it turns into a wonderful friendship. I think that this is a great book to be an example of how we should treat people who are different.
This is a great children’s book for the whole family! It is a great book for middle grade elementary school students to read by themselves, but it would be a great read-aloud for the family to read together. I think that books are great Christmas gifts and this would be a fabulous children’s book to get for Christmas! It is available for purchase on Amazon.
My Monster Burrufu gets bragging rights!
