    One thought on “The Story of Growl”

    1. This story was really beautiful. I loved the protagonist (Growl is a cute little monster who means well but she is not always understood). I don't want to spoil the ending but it was a pretty satisfactory one, I'd love to say just what I like about it but suffice it to say I would happily read this book to children and discuss the characters and situation with them. Also Horacek's drawings have been something I have loved for about 2 decades now!

    2. Fun story about a cute little monster who likes to growl all the time. At first, it gets her in trouble but then her growling saves the day. My children gave this book a thumbs up.

    3. Judy Horacek does some fantastic, insightful comics - see her website for some examples. Mem Fox, a well-respected children's author, teamed up with Judy to produce the CBCA Award winning Where Is the Green Sheep? - which was truely fantastic.This book is thus the first foray for Judy into the world of children's books solo Judy has a distinctive illustrative style, which flows through into this book. Judy's success in comics, I feel, is not through her skills as an illustrator (although a level [...]

    4. This Australian import by Judy Horacek features an adorable purple monster named Growl who loves to growl. Unfortunately Growl growls a bit too often and loud for the likes of her neighbors and soon a law is put in place restricting growling on Eucalyptus Drive. Growl is sadder than sad: "running is hard when you're trying not to cry." Then one night, her growling comes in handy. Cute, simple story with delightful illustrations shows children and adults alike that there is a time and place for e [...]

    5. Great for preschool storytimes! Growl is a little monster who likes to growl a lot. When her neighbors are disturbed by her growling at afternoon tea time, they get the police to make a special no growling rule on their street. This makes Growl incredibly sad. One night, a robber was stealing the neighbors' tea set! Growl growled! The robber ran away dropping everything. The neighbors then accepted Growl's growling. And Growl was considerate towards them by deciding not to growl during afternoon [...]

    6. CUTE! That's about it, but sometimes, that's enough. The story is generic kids book, which is fine (one needs a good library full of generic kids book stories -- not every book needs to have a deep, serious message), but the little monster is just so darn adorable it makes the book irresistible.

    7. This was a great book to read to young son who is a bit under the weather. It is fun, simple, cute pictures and he liked following the path of Growl through the forest. It has a good ending showing that we can get a long if we compromise and embrace others differences.

    8. This little monster's growling habit doesn't come in handy until one dark night. Would be very fun to read aloud and GROWL along. I wish it was a little bigger, though.

    9. Great story about a monster neighbor who loves to growl but scares the neighbors and has to stopuntil his growl helps out. Illustrations are very cute and light, not dark and scary.

    10. Great! I especially like that the little monster, aptly named Growl, is a girl!J asked for it a second time as soon as we finished.

    11. Very Cute. This could be a fun storytime read for preschoolers. Off the top of the head themes could include: monsters, scary, and mannerstely worth a look! :)

    12. average story, basic illustrations, the almost 4 year old I read it to like it, but it was nothing special

    13. Traditional story of a character's quirk ends up saving the day. It's a "be yourself" story. The hero, a monster is cute.

    14. Growl is a hoot. Although we had a hard time reconciling afternoon tea with the orchard at first. When I read that the author lives in Australia we both went "ahhhh." Such a cute monster.
