Here is what critics are saying about Ten Little Monsters Standing in a Line

Ten Little Monsters Standing in a Line by Chris Mason was a cute book. The book is similar to the song “Ten Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed.” Instead of monkeys, there are monsters waiting in line at the unemployment office. I chose to read Ten Little Monsters Standing in a Line with my 5-year-old daughter because the monkey song is one of her favorites. She sort of liked the story. She was confused as to why the monsters were in a line for an unemployment office. I had to explain to her what an unemployment office was and what it does. However, she did like the illustrations in the book. She thought the monsters were cute looking.

I thought the book was different and also sort of liked it. I liked the idea of the cute monsters and that it would help kids to learn how to count. Mason covered all of the classic monsters in this book like Godzilla and the Blob. I would have preferred for Mason to make them stand in a line that was geared more for kids, such as a cafeteria line or even a line for detention. The wording did not flow as smoothly as I would have liked, but it was still funny as to why each monster left the line. Overall, it is a nice book. Any book that helps kids learn to count in a new way is good in my eyes. If you like the monster classics, then this book might be for you.

Here is what critics are saying about P is For Phoenix: An ABC Book of Legendary and Mythological Creatures.

P is for Phoenix: An ABC Book of Legendary and Mythological Creatures by Chris Mason is an educational and informative book for children that not only teaches them the alphabet, but also gives them information about legendary and mythological creatures. The book makes teaching and learning fun, but also enhances young readers' knowledge and introduces them to creatures that existed in mythology and the role they played in cultures over the centuries. Learning the alphabet and about new creatures couldn’t be more interesting when children get to see the pictures of those creatures along with the descriptions. Readers can also check if their favorite legendary or mythological creature has been listed by the author.

The illustrations are bright and colorful and they make the concept and the meaning of the book clear to young readers. It’s a good bedtime story book and parents and grandparents can read it out to their kids and grandkids. The book can also be used for read aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries. Mythological creatures have always been a part of world cultures and the author brings them to the fore with this book. Books like this are good for children to teach them new things and also to enhance their knowledge and vocabulary. The theme and concept are original and refreshing, and the author’s idea of teaching the alphabet this way is fun and educational.

As the group parts goes off to their own we are able to learn more about Willie and his friends in their own home environment. Each character features a special hidden item puzzle adventure. The beautifully created illustrations allow us to discover more about this delightful cast of characters.

Ten Terrific Monsters: A Hidden Item Book by Chris Mason takes children into the world of Willie the Wolf. He welcomes readers into his space where there are nine other monsters, all waiting in a line at the unemployment office. Willie takes readers to different places and asks for their help in finding the hidden items with the help of answer keys. Whether they are with Boris the Blob when he is having dinner, or at Gabbie the Ghost's party, or the Amazon, or Willie’s home, readers will have a great time looking for the hidden items in these places.

The book is original and unique and children will love searching for the items mentioned in the answer keys for each place. The illustrations are bright and colorful and make the scenes lively and vivid. It’s an excellent book for children to enhance their observation skills, and can be used for interactive sessions in classrooms and school libraries. The concept is excellent and the book not only teaches readers new words and new things, but also guides them on how to look out for missing items with the help of the clues given. Interactive books and books with a concept help young readers to develop and enhance their observation and thinking skills. It’s also fun searching for the items misplaced in the book and doing it together in a classroom or with friends.

TEN TERRIFIC MONSTERS: A HIDDEN ITEM BOOK is an exceptional book filled with a host of delightful characters. Each one offers their own special sparkle to make this book appeal to both children and adults. In this one book there is over one hundred items to search for in ten different scenes. This feature will allow children to practice their counting and eye coordination skills.

Chris Mason has proven to me that he is a very talented author who is able to provide fresh and appealing ideas that can be very beneficial to the development of a child’s learning environment. Through the masterful illustrations created by Vladimir Cebu his words take on new meaning as these beautiful illustrations paint memorable scenes that is assured to delight both the child and adult. I highly recommend this book for it can be used as a tool to enhance any child’s overall learning development.

Review by: proudparent on April 06, 2014 Smashwords review
How many times have you wanted to help your children with their homework, only to be stopped by not exactly understanding their homework, and feeling like an idiot. What do we all do....we go to the internet to find the right website to help them. Only problem is, you spend more than an hour looking at websites. NO MORE...Tutor in a box is perfect whether your child is in grade school, middle school, or high school. Not only does it cover all the subjects, it also does it for what grades your kids are in. This book has given you the perfect websites to go to for about the price of a gallon of gas! Leave it to a parent to develop this great idea. I guarantee you will become closer to your children when you work with them on their homework. This book might actually get your kids to start talking to you more instead of playing video games!!!!!!

Impressive and free! You should have entitled it "how to get free music on the internet...for DUMMIES" No, I like your title better, but you make it very easy with all the step by step instructions. Too many of us are computer illiterate, and don't know what is available out there that's free. Thank you Chris for your time in making this tutorial for those of us who didn't know.

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
The story behind my latest book goes something like this….. I don’t like that beginning let’s start over.2016 has been a busy year for me as I have published 8 books total. A set a children’s books that include: P is for Phoenix: An ABC Book of Legendary and Mythological creatures. Ten Little Monsters Standing in a Line. An audio track to accompany Ten Little Monsters. Ten Terrific Monsters: A hidden Item Book which is a look and find book. AI line of coloring books and I contined adding new books to the In the Box series of books.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing for me is the journey. Other writers know what I mean. You start with an idea and you watch it grow and change along the way. Just like a Bonsai tree grow and takes shape. As the author you prune off what is not needed and guide this idea till it takes its final shape as a book. I also get buzz when someone says my writing was able to help them in some way.
