About the Book:

From Amazon ~

In a pleasant little town lives a normal family with a mom, a dad and two beautiful children. There is just one thing that makes this family different from most other families; they don't have a dog, a cat, or pets of any kind. Instead, they have a Coffee Monster! 

Follow Jenna and James as they try to deal with the Coffee Monster's antics and help him overcome a personal struggle. Through this simple, but comedic tale, learn about the value of telling the truth, taking care of oneself and each other, and how to work-through everyday issues. Most of all, you just might learn that there's a little 'Coffee Monster' in all of us..

My Review:

The Coffee Monster is a short, illustrated book that is suitable for children and adults.  The content deals with the consequences an addiction has on families.  This book of course focuses on an addiction to coffee and caffeine.  Everyone goes through a personal struggle at some point in life, whether it be an addiction, depression, or financially related (among others).  

Nate Friedman's "The Coffee Monster" helps a family and their unconventional pet deal with a personal struggle of addiction.  The book focuses on honesty and asking for help when you feel you are out of control.  The development of the characters, issues, and eventual resolution to the Coffee Monster's problem make this short story an easy method of teaching children about an addiction and the solution to the problem.  The watercolor type illustrations are well done, as well.
