Comparatively speaking, Who's Afraid of Godzilla? is a much more challenging text than Kerry Milliron's Godzilla Likes to Roar! Whereas Milliron's book often had merely one or two sentences on a page built around a simple rhyming scheme, Who's Afraid of Godzilla? is more likely to have two paragraphs with nary a rhyming word in sight. There is actually a story with characters to care about, and a very basic social/moral dilemma to ponder, albeit one that is neatly wrapped up by the end. Friendship is valued, as is the inclusion of those who are different, and readers are encouraged to suspend judgment against people who may initially appear scary. For children, it functions well without being preachy or obnoxious, and long-time G-fans will love that Anguirus and Godzilla's friendship is established by the end.
