Books for Keeps gives Monster Baby 3 stars

"The illustrations are warm and loving, and the end papers are wonderful – full of all sorts of brightly-coloured toys. A charming story."

Armadillo reviews Monster Baby

"The illustrations are bright and appealing with much for a monster or a child to identify with.  These monsters are endearing with their stripy horns, furry orange bodies and lovable expressions.  Baby monster is sweet in his babygro and Scamp is just the kind of dog a child needs. A story that will be shared many times in a family with more and more interest on each reading."

Red Reading Hub reviews Monster Baby

"Sarah Dyer’s Little Monster is adorable: his account of the weeks leading up to, and just after, the arrival of his new sibling will be enjoyed not only by those in a similar situation, but also general early years audiences, whether this is shared at home or pre-school."
