The Blue Sea Monster is a beautiful book written by Norma Fleagane, James Fleagane and Blake James Ward. Little Blake likes monster stories a lot and grandma Norma has to tell new ones every time. So, she and grandpa came up with this beautiful monster story.

This story is about a monster that captures children who come to play on the beach very early in the morning or late in the evening and takes them to a place where no one could find them. Grandpa and Blake must do all they can to find the missing children.

I fell in love with the book right from the first page. The beautiful illustrations reminded me of storybooks I read as a child. Each page was clearly written and I found them very easy to read. Knowing that the book was written by a great grandma is so heartwarming.

The book is a very short one but it’s filled with great lessons for children. It taught children to have the mindset that they are problem solvers. Children will also learn that it is dangerous to walk alone in dark or lonely places.

The book is very easy to read with words that are easy to understand. Young children would enjoy looking at the beautiful and detailed illustrations that make the book come alive in different colors.

I finished reading this book in one sitting because I enjoyed it. There was nothing I disliked about it. The book was designed in landscape orientation just like many storybooks though I didn’t figure that out immediately. I found one typographical error and no grammatical errors. The book was also professionally edited.

I would rate The Blue Sea Monster four out of four stars due to the reasons I mentioned above. There were no profanities or sexual scenes. So, I recommend this book to children from age four and above who enjoy monster stories.

Your success is not completely deserved, and the failure of others is not completely deserved either :D

Grandparents have their own unique style of creating some wonderful stories while adding a drop of wisdom. I can only imagine the lessons given by the great grandmother in her book. Thank you for such a great recommendation! Lovely review!
