One Star Review Guess Who? (#19)

image 500x375 One Star Review Guess Who? (#19)

Can you guess the classic children’s book by its scathing one-star review on Goodreads or Amazon?

I knew going into the book that I probably wasn’t going to like it much. What I didn’t expect was to be profoundly affected, to the point of tears and sleepless nights, by a drawing of [character], his furry mouth so wide with terror that his head resembled a blubbering halved blue grapefruit, positively out of control with horror and dread concerning the MONSTER that was about to destroy him, to destroy us all, because he’d spoken to me, personally, directly, about the effects the very book I held in my hands would have on the both of us in the immediate future.

One star, one scar.
