    From all the parents out there who read tons of books to their kids and sometimes have to suffer through some really awful ones because their kids love them, I would like to say Thank You. My son loves these and so do I.

    2.5 starsMy first chapter book read aloud to my students for the new school year. They seemed to enjoy the story, but it hasn't incited their desire to check out the other books in the series. Perhaps it will take time to see a change in that response.

    Maybe I'm just not the target audience, but these are truly getting old already. I do like Posey's extra special princess hat that she makes, though, and I especially like that Gramps helps her with it.

    It’s Halloween in this fourth book in the Princess Posey series, and the boys in Posey’s class have told her that only babies go trick-or-treating with flashlights. Her teacher says they’ll be having monster stew in class on Halloween. On top of that, one of the boys next door is wearing a scary ogre mask as part of his costume. Posey doesn’t want to be a baby, but she is definitely scared of the dark and of monsters. It will take a lot of creativity - and some help from Gramps - to make sure Halloween is fun and not too scary.I think it’s hard to write a holiday-themed chapter book without repeating themes and storylines that have been done before, and I think that’s why this book feels weak in comparison to others of the series. The first three books focus on problems that are specific to Posey as a unique, well-developed character. This time, Posey faces the same old fears that every chapter book protagonist deals with at Halloween, and as a result, the story is not as engaging as the others. I was puzzled, too, as to why the adults in this book seem fine with Posey trick-or-treating without a flashlight. I might be reading into that too much, but from the time the issue arose in the first chapter, I was waiting for the well-meaning adult to step in with the safety lecture and it didn’t happen. Granted, Posey does not end up walking the streets in the dark. I just thought it was a strange idea that a child would go out at night without a light.I think the best part of this book is the character of Posey’s grandfather, Gramps. I like that he helps Posey with things like carving a pumpkin and putting together a princess hat. I also like that he doesn’t indulge Posey’s fears, but reinforces the idea that she should expect some gags on Halloween, but that she is capable of taking care of herself. The story as a whole also drives home the underlying message I think small kids need to hear at Halloween - that we fear what we don’t know, but it’s all pretend, and if we look closely, we can see the silliness beneath the scariness.Just like the books before it, Princess Posey and the Monster Stew is a cute, sweet story just perfect for girls in kindergarten and first grade. It’s just not the strongest one of the series, or the most memorable.

    I got a set of these hard-cover books for very cheap at a Friends of the Library book sale. I was very happy to note the large print with a nice big space between lines. Reading through, the mentality, language, and story was perfect for a group of my high first and mid-low second grade girls. Without a level on scholastic book-wizard (besides saying it was a 1.2 grade level), I decided we could just give it a try. It was well worth that try for my low-high second graders who hated reading and were terrified of those big nasty looking chapter books! They did great with the story! They enjoyed, comprehended, and connected with the story. During and after reading, those second grade girls started picking up the other Princess Posey books I had in our class library. One of the moms shared that her child had never before come home from school and read without any reminder and fit. I owe it to this book for helping her to learn to love reading!

    This is a very cute book and a very good Halloween read for kids. After coming off of a bad children's Halloween book, this is a breath of fresh air. Posey is an adorable and relatable little girl. She is curious and she likes school and she has the kinds of fears young children might have at Halloween. She is a little teased by boys in her class and wants to be seen as brave. Overall, this is a quick read, and makes a good transition book from picture books to chapter books. It is simple and straightforward, with a nice story. I would highly recommend this one for young readers for the Halloween season.

    It's subtle...if you read these in order the reading level will get just a little bit harder as you go. I LOVE when a series takes that into consideration. And the fact that my daughters can't get enough of these books pleases me as well. What a great and fun way to advance your reading level!This is a Halloween story and as usual Posey has her own unique way of handling her fears. Adventurous and brave, Posey is a role model I'd like for my own kids (beautiful the way she comforts her little brother). Awesome book!

    My 6 yr old daughter is a huge fan. Reading level is 2.9. It is a great series for advance girl readers. Posey is very sweet, but timid--a typical 1st grade girl. In this book, she is both excited about all that Halloween has to offer, but a bit afraid of Halloween, too. This is also typical 1st grade stuff. In the end, she shows conquers her fears to have a fun & creative time.My daughter wishes there could be 99 books in the series.

    Posey is back, and this time it is to celebrate Halloween, with monster stew.Another adorable read with Posey, a first-grader looking to live each day with all she can.This series is perfect for read-alouds with your little ones, ages 4 to 6. I'm going to have to check my library for the third one!

    For a book this size, Princess Posey and the Monster Stew packs a lot of punch! It's one kids will love, and parents will to because it's enjoyable enough to hold for repetitions and the kind of book-obsession kids often go for. Find my full spotlight (plus the cat's two cents) on my blog, and happy reading!

    Another great story about Posey! As she has with the other Princess Posey books, Greene treats her fears and anxieties with respect and it makes Posey a great character. This time it's about Halloween with a dash of growing up--and the perfect compromise at the end. Yay for Princess Posey! :)

    I thought this was a really cute book. I would definitely recommend reading it to you classroom or children during halloween time to show them that it is okay to be afraid of things and eventually you will be able to face them.

    Some kids have a security blanket, but Posey has her tutu to help her through scary times. Cute series for 1st/2nd grade readers.

    I totally didn't know she had more books until I got on goodreads and I plan on reading more because I think it would be a good addition to my classroom.

    Princess Posey reminds me of my oldest little girl. We love her adventures. This book was a fun read right before Halloween.
