This book achieved legendary status as I grew up. Apparently it was one of my favorite books as a kid, and certain parts made me laugh and chuckle until I was blue in the face. Potter Pig was referenced even when I was a teenager, and about trying to sneak into parties and such. After I had kids, I knew this would be added to their collection but it didn't get the same reaction out of them (ages 5 and 7) as it did me, so very long ago. The fun is still there, but I think I enjoyed the nostalgia trip more than they liked the story. The illustrations are what truly sell it, Potter in his ridiculous getups and Mona with her giant dancing rat feet.

The story goes a little like this... Potter Pig has always been invited to all the parties. He's the life of them all, of course. No one says "party" quite like an appearance by Potter. But this time, he didn't get an invitation, and believes that it must be some kind of mistake. After being turned away at the door a few times by Mona, he finally decides he will just sneak it. A variety of disguises and excuses get him booted out on his curly tailed butt a few times before he finally gains enough access to Mona to find out why he REALLY wasn't given an invitation to what looks to be the most happening party thrown by a rat, all year. He apologizes for some feelings hurt, and is welcomed into the party.

Most kids books would stop there these days. Being so very aware of feelings and lessons and so forth. There's A Party at Mona's Tonight was written in a different time, when things could be taken a little further and made a bit more humorous. Potter is shown as bringing the fun to the party when he sees Mona dancing and puts his foot (errr... hoof?) in snout by making the same faux pas as he had before... a comment on Mona's feet. This gets him chucked out the door again. But Potter is a tenacious pig, and another rat foot to the tail is not going to stop him... the last page shows his most ridiculous scheme yet... and this is the greatest punchline in the book. What lengths will he go to get into the party? That's the running gag, and it's a good one.. the little twist at the end is the clencher.

Yes, "There's a Party at Mona's Tonight" is still a fun read. Hopefully my kids will come around to liking it as much as I did, and having it referenced just as often.

This is a great book about friendship and it's requirements. It is also about persistence. It is also about what happens when you don't listen. Marvelous.
