Reviews - What do customers think about Monster Machines?
MONSTER HIT with 4yr old boy Mar 16, 2003
DK publishes great books - we have many of the hardboards as well as ones similar to this. If you have the 'Trains' or "Things That Go" ones, you may find this a tad redundant (dump truck and trains are again featured in "Monster").
I was especially impressed with the inclusion of the Jumbo Jet (photo of piggy-backed Space Shuttle was cool) and the Ice Breaker Ship.
I find the fold-out pages to be more an asset than hindrance. True, extra care is required to avoid bending them, but the extended page size they afford more than makes up for the inconvenience.
The large photos are wonderful, but... Aug 24, 2000
This book is a large format with full sized fold-out pages. The pages fold out on both sides revealing big photographs. ...but even when my child is careful (rarely), the pages do not get folded back into the proper place. When the book is closed, the fold-out pages get crumpled.
