"Monster has the best platform EVER in this furry fun first look at elections! (He had me at 'desserts'—then it got even better!) Monster Needs Your Vote has mine!"
"Playful rhyming text and comically overblown rhetoric (oratory skills, platform, grassroots movement) combined with colorful digital illustrations exemplify the intricacies of being a candidate and the importance of the democratic process. The extra bonus is that after a couple of missteps, Monster hits his stride by campaigning to save libraries. VERDICT A good introduction to what happens on a campaign, how voting for a president works, and the dynamics of civic engagement."
"...the perfect book about politics and moral causes. Czajak weaves an encouraging and fun tale that will teach children about the voting process and the importance of making their voice heard."
