From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2 A frightening book that lacks reassurance or warmth. A huge dragon-like creature carries off a little boy and his terrified mother, one in each claw, to his home. There the other creatures fight for possession of the monster's new playthings, until the monster is admonished by his mother "to take them right back where you found them," and the two are returned to the little boy's bed. Text consists of one or two sentences of dialogue per page, and it's occasionally difficult to tell which creature is speaking. The monsters are more menancing than fanciful, with ferocious expressions, claws posed for action, and tongues hanging out. Unlike the heroes of Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are (Harper, 1963) and Mayer's There's a Nightmare in My Closet (Dial, 1968), both of whom overcome or conquer their monsters, this child is passive and the mother ineffective; both are at the mercy of the monsters' whims.
