Book Review: Inside Mary Elizabeth's House by Pamela Allen - Reviewed by (19 Sep 2012)

One of my sons favorite story - Inside Mary Elizabeth's House.

Every Day Mary Elizabeth gets teased when walking to school by a group of boys. Mary's response is that there is a Monster in her house. Of course this leads to extra ridicule from the group.

One day Mary Elizabeth invites the group of boys over for dinner. The boys get the most unexpected surprise at dinner.

This children's book is a most delightful and amusing tale, with large colorful illustrations and of course a mysterious Monster which isn't too scary for the young kids. A book you can re-read over and over.


Author Biography - Pamela Allen

Pamela Allen is a phenomenon in the world of children's literature. For almost thirty years her picture books have enchanted generations of children in Australia and overseas and many of her titles have won prestigious awards and commendations. She has earned classic status through the enduring popularity of her stories with the very young. Pamela's books are full of the music of language; they are 'fragments of theatre', designed to be read aloud and shared between an adult and a child. Eight of Pamela's titles were adapted for the stage by Patch Theatre Company, and performed in the Sydney Opera House. In 2004, Grandpa and Thomas won the Children's Book Council Book of the Year Award- Early Childhood and The Potato People was named an Honour Book in the same category in 2003, and Grandpa and Thomas and the Green Umbrella was shortlisted for the same award in 2007, as was Shhh! Little Mouse in 2008. Is Your Grandmother a Goanna? won a 2008 Speech Pathology of Australia Book of the Year Award, as did Our Daft Dog Danny in 2010. 'From Pamela Allen's first publication in 1980 it was clear that here was a creator of picture books with all the glow, gesture, din and dance to capture the attention, engage the imagination, teach, show, tickle and excite small children.'
