About the book:
"My monster mama loves me so!
Let me tell you how I know;
When I wake up, she tweaks my nose,
tickles all my pointy toes,
combs the cobwebs from my bangs,
and make sure that I brush my fangs...
This adorable rhyming book is the perfect nighttime read. Mama Monster dotes on her little one and pours her love out on her.
"She gives me great big hairy hugs,/bakes me cookies filled with bugs,.../she sings a monster lullaby/of things that shriek and moan and creep...soothing things to help me sleep."
She tenderly tucks her little Monster in bed asking her if she has fed her pet spider then fondly hangs her favourite bat overhead to lull her little one to sleep. Sweet, tender and loving, this book will become a bedtime favourite for both child and mama alike.
The illustrator paints in colourful acrylic-and-oil paints and creates scenarios of happy times in swampy dips, Little League ball games and depicts the little Monster's biggest fears in human form. The story is sure to melt your heart and cause you to appreciate the true heart of a mother's love towards her precious child.
