We are a house of readers and I am always happy to discover a new book for my kids or myself. K-Dub is really into books these days and carries them around the house with him so I was very excited when I was given the chance to review Albert and the Amazing Pillow Monsters by Justin Drazin.

Albert and the Amazing Pillow Monsters is a whimsical book with beautiful folk art illustrations about a boy, Albert, who overcomes his fear of the dark by dreaming about the pillow monsters. They come to him in his sleep and take him on an adventure and show him that the dark and bedtime isn’t scary.

The 2013 Mom’s Choice Awards® has recently named “Albert and the Amazing Pillow Monsters” among the best children’s books and the coveted 2013 Gelett Burgess Children’s Book Awards named “Albert” the best children’s bedtime book. 

This book is very well written and K-Dub enjoys looking at the pictures as well as listening to the story. We would definitely recommend this cute book to any young child, especially one who may be afraid of the dark or who has been having bad dreams. I enjoyed this book just as much as K did and it is a very welcome addition to our  children’s book collection.

  3. What beautiful illustrations! My son isn’t old enough to quite understand being afraid of the dark, but this story would definitely help if he ever is afraid!
