    Ruffleclaw is a furry red earth monster who lives in a burrow One day, he decides to move into a house full of humans Though no one invited him, Ruffleclaw lets himself into the house and climbs into bed with a little boy named Tommy Come morning, Tommy is shocked to find a monster in his bed, but decides to keep him Tommy soon learns that earth monsters are messy creatures, and he must teach his monster to behave if wants to convince his mom to let him keep Ruffleclaw Like any other earthRuffleclaw is a furry red earth monster who lives in a burrow One day, he decides to move into a house full of humans Though no one invited him, Ruffleclaw lets himself into the house and climbs into bed with a little boy named Tommy Come morning, Tommy is shocked to find a monster in his bed, but decides to keep him Tommy soon learns that earth monsters are messy creatures, and he must teach his monster to behave if wants to convince his mom to let him keep Ruffleclaw Like any other earth monster s burrow, Ruffleclaw s home smelled of earthworms and millipedes, but the floor was covered with soft sweaters, and piled high in the corners were all the human things he had snuck away with over time. Ruffleclaw is an irascible monster His hobbies include eating earthworms and collecting human things He loves the sound of Tommy s mom playing piano and the taste of shampoo And he conveys his enthusaiams by using words like slimalicious and creepy crawladocious However, Ruffleclaw is also something of an insufferable child But in return, Ruffleclaw had to promise again to stay put The monster licked his claws and chuckled quietly What a pity the earth monsters never kept their promises Never Ever He burped and patted his belly. Ruffleclaw spits green slime that stains the walls and loves chewing on Tommy s toys He eats all the soap in the bathroom and steals all the cake from the fridge He makes messes wherever he goes and smells of moldy things In comparison, Tommy is not much better He has no qualms about making demands of his pushover momI ll only eat when I get my monster back That is simply not an option his mother hissed angrily.Tommy crossed his arms I m officially on a hunger strike And I won t go to school, either Final The end But that s just silly, his mother whined She was fiddling with her earlobes, something she only did when she was nervous. In the final chapter, Ruffleclaw pushes Tommy under the bus metaphorically, of course , yet the two remain friends Clearly these two brats were made for each other Ruffleclaw features cute illustrations and two protagonists whose behavior no parent would want their child to emulate

    When Ruffleclaw, an earth monster, moves into a human house, he destroys everything, smells awful, has bugs in his fur, eats the humans out of house and home, and disobeys whatever the human boy, Tommy, tells him to do Yet when Ruffleclaw leaves, Tommy misses him Really I don t see much evidence of an actual friendship there, and the novelty of a pet monster would wear off very quickly in light of Ruffleclaw s awful behavior But the ultimate stretch of credibility comes when Tommy s parents When Ruffleclaw, an earth monster, moves into a human house, he destroys everything, smells awful, has bugs in his fur, eats the humans out of house and home, and disobeys whatever the human boy, Tommy, tells him to do Yet when Ruffleclaw leaves, Tommy misses him Really I don t see much evidence of an actual friendship there, and the novelty of a pet monster would wear off very quickly in light of Ruffleclaw s awful behavior But the ultimate stretch of credibility comes when Tommy s parents agree to let him keep Ruffleclaw as a pet, despite his father s allergies and his mother s ruined piano

    It s a cute book but the part where the boy whines abd acts stubborn to manipulate his mother to get a pet made me uncomfortable Perhaps it s the translation Would be curious to see the He version.

    This was required reading assigned by my 7 year old Ruffleclaw is a fun, whimsical book in which a mischievous monster gets into trouble and complains a lot The story lacked a compelling reason for why Tommy and Ruffleclaw want to be together, I wish they would have developed some sort of friendship rather than wanting to be together because having a monster would be cool, or yum food Otherwise fun to read and the mischief and mayhem thrilled the 7 year old.

    Ruffleclaw is an earth monster who loves to eat worms and is fascinated by humans He decides he is going to move in with Tommy and his family mainly because the mom plays wonderfully jingly music on the piano I was not impressed with this book I found Ruffleclaw offensive and thoroughly unlikeable I couldn t understand Tommy s quick turnaround of being scared of Ruffleclaw and then wanting to keep him forever The mom even gives in fairly quickly simply because the monster likes her piano pl Ruffleclaw is an earth monster who loves to eat worms and is fascinated by humans He decides he is going to move in with Tommy and his family mainly because the mom plays wonderfully jingly music on the piano I was not impressed with this book I found Ruffleclaw offensive and thoroughly unlikeable I couldn t understand Tommy s quick turnaround of being scared of Ruffleclaw and then wanting to keep him forever The mom even gives in fairly quickly simply because the monster likes her piano playing and wants to learn how to play Ruffleclaw is nothing but insults and bad behavior I can maybe see boys liking this story, but I don t think it will sit well with parents or most readers

    I loved Cornelia Funke s Inkheart and thought I d read this because I d heard good things about it and my stuffy nose was demanding something I didn t need to think too much about It was not good Characters were annoying and the story seemed to say hey, it s cool if you re an unwanted, ungrateful guest in someone s home As long as you do one thing right they will let you stay What kind of message is that for kids

    I preferred The Pirate Pig to this one, mostly because I wasn t a huge fan of Ruffleclaw as a character I could see the right type of kid being into it though It had a bit of gross out humor spitting, smelliness, etc that I m not a huge fan of But there was something Roald Dahl like about this that I liked.
