This cute chapter book is told from Jaxon’s point of view as he contemplates life and the world around him. Some of his vocabulary mix-ups are a little reminiscent of Ramona. He is very curious and very outspoken much like the young men I have known at that age.
It is a snapshot into his life in the country one particular summer that actually took me back to my own childhood planting the garden with my own parents. Readers may develop a curiosity about starting their own!
This was such a cute book! I loved the short chapters, each a mini-story in itself but still connected to the overall story. This definitely sounds like an excited five-year-old telling you a story, which I have to applaud the author for. The chapters are short enough that parents can read a chapter before bed each night to their little ones. Absolutely a fun book!
I loved the book! It made me cry laughing.
Fun and Fresh
If you want a good clean read for your young ones with lots of real life laughs and a great prairie setting, look no further. You won’t be disappointed by reading this one. Jaxon comes to life on these pages. It is difficult to find wholesome, well-written books for juvenile readers so this book is much appreciated.
A Wonderful Realistic Representation of Rural Life
Arranged in short (but sweet) chapters, Jaxon and the Naughty Secret Monster is the perfect format for bedtime readings. It’s a wholesome narrative with many amusing incidents that will entertain a young audience and includes some humorous asides that are targeted more to the adult who may be reading the book aloud.
Author Madeline M. Pratchler has a confident, easy prose style that keeps the story moving and a mother’s ear for the dialogue of children and their often unintentional witticisms.
