This sequel to The Monster at the End of This Book continues the spirit of its precursor with a delightful story and similar features that will keep children engaged and entertained while developing several literacy skills at once. The focus moves from fear and being scared of monsters to cooperation and collaboration between Grover, little Elmo, and the child reader, who helps Elmo get to the end of the book by turning the pages, solving a little game or overcoming Grover's strategies to lock the book. Features like word highlighting, repetition and questions that address the reader support reading, understanding and speaking skills. Tips for parents suggest strategies of how to talk to children about conflict resolution and listening to other's perspectives, enhancing the joint-reading experience.
