Published on December 2nd 2013 by MeeGenius

Grumble, grumble, RUMBLE!!! This boy is having some tummy troubles. His Tummy Monster won’t stop making noises! What can a kid do when a monster won’t keep quiet? This is getting quite embarrassing!

This is an extremely cute book – on a topic I haven’t seen before – growling tummies! Who hasn’t had one of those? The illustrations are awesome – they remind me a bit of Japanese Manga. Have a look!


Isn’t that great? This is a good story for pre-schoolers, and kindergarteners. I like how the MeeGenius book has a READ TO ME format. It has sound effects. I like that. It will make young children laugh. The rhyme is well-done. I love how it flows when you read it out loud. This book is excellent for its age-range!

I give this book 5 out of 5 bookworms!fivebooks

YaY for Romelle. I’m glad you reviewed this book because it reminded me of two books I need to get. YIKES. I’m SO forgetful. I’m going right now to order. What a great review, Erik! I love rhyme done well.

ACK. My comment got eaten by a goblin. Man. Those stinkin’ goblins! This was a fantastic review, Erik. I love rhyme done well. I need to order Romelle’s book. And yours for my library. I forgot all about that. Going right now!

Well, goblins normally don’t bathe, so they WILL stink… 😉 Just blame those dirty, no-good trolls! 😉

What an interesting topic. I like the illustrations. They remind me of Kalpart images.

It is a great book. One that you should review, y’know? 😉

Thank you for the wonderful review, Erik! You made my day. Now to go satisfy my hungry tummy. 🙂

Thank YOU Ms. Broas! Tummies should NEVER go hungry! 🙂

Erik, the title of this book made me smile. Looks like a really fun book. I have a Tummy Monster too, every now and again. 🙂

The cover picture was a tad creepy at first glance, but now that we read what it is about – it sounds cute. We were wondering what is wrong with that human! We have tummy monsters, too.

This is a great book. 🙂

Cute illustrations. Funky purple hair! Ya, it does look like manga. Congrats to Romelle!


thiskidreviewsbooks March 20, 2014 at 5:28 pm #
That’s purple? Whoa. I thought it was a blue-black. But, I am colorblind. 😉


Lynn A. Davidson March 20, 2014 at 10:15 pm #
Cute story. I hope a way was found to still the rumbles. Peppermint works great. 🙂

There is a nice solution. )

Glitterbelle: The Sparkliest Princess Ever!
by Rachael Duckett
(reviewed by my little sister) The reason why I like Glitterbelle so much is because I like princesses and she is pretty and she has good best friends (Angel and Dazzlina). I also like her dog, Bob. 🙂 I also REALLY like the illustration…
