This is a story about Jon and Jen who wanted to own a pet. Their parents who are scientists decided to invent a pet for them instead! So they invent a pet called Monstar who is a green fluffy pet with a brown patch in the shape of a star over one eye. Both children learn a lot about their new pet like her favourite food, habits and lot more. As she gets too big, their parents decide that she should stay in the garden instead. So one day, something happens in their parents’ laboratory and Monstar came to rescue. So what happened? Rather than spoil it, I will let you read about it.
Mr K was able to read quite well for his age as it uses very simple English with no big words. The storyline is very fun and easy to understand. The essence of the story is that sometimes bad behaviour might not be a bad thing after all. What Monstar had did, in fact, she managed to save the day! Monstar is a very unique pet! Mr K would love to adopt her but not for his mum! Lol!
