    I was very, very disappointed with this book. These cartoons have been previously published, which fact was not mentioned in the description of the book. Nor is it mentioned in any way in the book itself, not even on the copyright page. Also, the quality of the drawings is not very good. They appear faded and slightly out of focus, as if the publisher could not be bothered to obtain the originals to print from. I am a great admirer of Mr. Tatulli and his work, but this is unacceptable behavior for any artist or publishing company.

    My son and I are huge Lio fans. We were really excited that there was a new collection coming out. Imagine my surprise when i found out it's not new.. completely recycled. Seriously, there ought to be a warning label saying "this is one of the prior collections with a new cover".

    Lio is a Mad scientist type boy who makes friends with all sorts of animals especially spiders, snakes and aliens. If you like the Far Side you might like this especially if you don't like to read as much and like pictures that tell a story.This book makes you think because some of the pictures are a little deep so it's not a boring cartoon book that get's old quick because you might want to look again at some of the pictures or study them with a friend.

    I fell in love with Lio when it appeared in the Chicago Tribune. The Tribune dropped it but I found it online and read every book.

    Lio: There's a Monster in My Socks is about a boy named Lio. In the beginning he starts believing in monsters. He does a lot of weird things like take the motor out of his dad’s lawn mower and his dad went to mow the lawn and he is not happy. In the middle of the book, Lio imagines that there is a monster in his socks. His parents think he is crazy!!! Does Lio's mind stop going wild? Read the book to find out!My favorite parts are when Lio gets two toilet plungers and throws the first one on one side of the wall. He throws the other one on the other side of the wall. He ties string to the end of the toilet plungers. Then he puts a bent stick on the string and uses it as a zip line. He drops on his bed and the monsters are not happy. I also like Lio because he is creative.I would recommend this book for 8 and over because there are no words. You need to look at the pictures and make up the words. So, everyone can make up their own story. Younger kids might need a lot of help. I hope you like the story. Have fun!

    What do you do when your kids is obsessed with monsters and zombies? The best answer is to introduce him to Lio. Lio is the expressive silent type. His hair along with his actions make a statement kids will recognize, especially since there are no real words for kids to read. They can use their imagination as they examine the illustrations. The character Lio is creative, in one scene he attaches plunger cups to his shoes and climbs the walls, therefore hiding from his brother. Lio builds robots and snuggles with his pet cobra Frank. His imagination teeters between genius and the macabre. One particular scene demonstrates bullies making fun of a kid who has a hunchback. Lio rescues him and utilizes him as an assistant for his snake. One can only guess where this scenario will lead. Another scenario demonstrates Lio reaching out to aliens via radio waves, and once they arrive he trades a tricycle for their ship. Strangely humorous, kids and adults will love Lio and his ingeniously unusual humor and antics.
