ABOUT THE AUTHOR
“Garett Gruber lives in Orange, CA and is the father to Griffin, an amazing twelve-year old. He developed the idea for MRG, with the help of his son, during an atypical windy and stormy night. Doors creaked and windows banged, and the hunt to secure and de-monsterize the house began. As the storm raged, he watched his son transform from scared to empowered with each ridiculous monster-removing technique. And he knew he was on to something. When not searching for new monsters, he spends his time hiking, lizard hunting, and generally making his son laugh, and perhaps, a little embarrassed. He is 39.”

Working out of a small office, he creates the images and characters that have made thousands of projects come to life. You may be familiar with his work from Alphabet Woof or Too tall Joe!

What a totally fantastic book. Monster Removal Guide by Garett Gruber is one of the neatest children’s books I’ve read in a very long time.
The story line is really sweet. It tells children how they can get rid of monsters in totally different ways than I have ever heard of before. Just a couple to give you a idea of how to get rid of monsters: reading cute poetry about puppies, kittens and unicorns-the next is called The Little Stinker, using your baby brother or sister who still is in diapers, or using a stinky sock, because monsters have good sniffers and can’t stand dirty smells. My most favorite is using Prayer because it is 100% fail-safe.
The pictures in this book are superb. They are so rich and full of bright colors, that you will love to read this book to your children over and over and they will love to read it as well.
In the back of the book it has a Monster Identification Chart. It shows and tells about all of the different monsters that are known.
This book shows monsters like they are in Monsters Inc. that great movie. The monsters are mean, but not scary to look at.
I highly recommend this cute book and look forward to Garett’s next book. Thanks for the fantastic, fun book Garett.
