Ok, now these books were some great reading. I can say that myself as i own each of these books. Really great children's novels that can even be enjoyed today as an adult.

Let's hear what you all have to say. Do you all own these? If so, have you read them?

Crap, i meant to say this.

#12. The official godzilla compendium book is a good starters book for those who want to learn a little bit more about godzilla. But, that book becomes garbage after reading other books by David Kalaat, and August Ragone's.

I've never heard of these! :O For some reason, I still have the Random House Thomas the Train books from when I was 4. :T

I love the Marc Cerasini books! I own them all.

I have most of the above including the excellent Marc Cerasini books. I wish there were more books like ones he wrote. He had a great knack for detail and added elements never talked about in the movies such as what Godzilla might smell like.

Don't forget these:


Godzilla 2000 was always my favorite of Random House's series.

Strangely as a hardcore Godzilla collector who has so much awesome stuff, the Random House books are something I've only recently begun retroactively collecting.  I had none of them groing up, and although they were in the back of my mind for years, I never throught to find them.  After I reached a point where I thought I had found hjust about every official Godzilla story out there, I suddeenly thought "Hey wait... how about those books?!  Thats a whole series of Godzilla stories I have yet to experience!"  I have, in the last few months, tracked down good copies of Godzilla Invades America, Godzilla Saves Ameica, and The Official Godzilla Compendium, a book that I had been looking for for five or six years!

Its so strange that this topic was posted today... I just got the children's picture book Who's Afraid of Godzilla? in the mail a few hours ago... a great copie for only 4 bucks!  I ordered it for a number of reasons, but largely because of my wonderful job.  I am a preschool teacher at my local YMCA, and I wanted a way to safely introduce my kids to the wonders of Godzilla without scaring the younger ones.  I think this book will be the way to do that, and maybe make a few new fans along the way!  It will be verys special to combine two of my favorite things in my life... Godzilla, and my kids at work. :')

@Gman2887,

Yeah, godzilla 2000 and godzilla returns are my two favorite books.

@Danzilla93,

I will update things that way once i get the time, and i hope you enjoy the official compendium, it is a great starters book filled with lots of information. I actually learned quite a bit from that book, but thanks to gman2887, David kalaat's book and August Ragone's books are more associated with Toho. The only untrue thing in the official compendium book is that the showa godzilla had super regenative powers, which is not true. Showa godzilla was just tough.

By the way danzilla, You can find more than half of these books on amazon.com for some reasonable prices.

^I know, they have been in my Amazon cart for about a year now. XD But not only am I trying to save money, but the cheapest ones are in lousy condition a lot of the time.  So it needs to be a perfect storm of good timing in terms of money, and a good copy for a good price.
