Reviews are a common part of our everyday lives. We might read product reviews before making a purchase, or check out critic reviews of a movie we’re interested in. But what about book reviews? In this lesson, we’ll be exploring the purpose and format of book reviews.

The Plot

The Plot:
Do Not Open This Book! is a children’s book written by Micheala Muntean and illustrated by Karl Jones. The book is about a little monster who tells the reader not to open the book, and then proceeds to give them a series of increasingly ridiculous warnings about what will happen if they do.

The warnings get more and more absurd, until the monster finally admits that there is nothing actually bad that will happen if the reader opens the book. In fact, the only thing that will happen is that the story will end. This is a clever way to encourage kids to keep reading!

The illustrations are colorful and fun, and perfectly complement the humorous text. My kids loved this book, and I think yours will too.

The Characters

The book follows the life of a young girl, as she tries to uncover the secrets her family is hiding from her. The characters are intriguing and likable, but the plot is convoluted and often confusing.

The Writing

The Writing: I give this book two out of five stars. It was too much like a children’s book for my taste. The author must have thought that they were being funny, but I did not laugh once.

##Heading: The Plot
The Plot: I also give this book two out of five stars. It was very predictable and not at all interesting.


Do Not Open This Book by Adam Lehrhaupt is a children’s book about following rules and being creative. The protagonist, a young boy, is given a blank book by his teacher and told not to draw in it. The boy is extremely curious and struggling to contain his creativity, so of course he begins to draw in the book. The story follows the boy as he creates more and more pictures in the book, despite the warnings from his teacher.

The themes in this book are disobedience, rules, and creativity. The book promotes creativity and encourages children to think outside the box. It also teaches children that it is okay to disobey rules sometimes, as long as they are not harming others. This is an important lesson for children to learn, as it will help them to be independent thinkers when they grow up.

The Ending

The ending was very disappointing and abrupt. I felt like the author could have done a better job wrapping up the story.


There are some good things about this book. The illustrations are well done and the story is cute. My son liked it and laughed at the parts that were meant to be funny. The book is also a good size for small hands.


The book is very short, so if you’re looking for a lot of content, this isn’t the book for you. Additionally, some of the instructions are a bit confusing and might be better suited for someone who already has some knowledge of books.
