Unwrapping Some Illustrations 

The Book

A creative artistic little wizard is a pro with his paintbrush. He uses his wand as his paintbrush and incessantly designs creepy assorted monsters that magically wake up and come alive...

"My drawings start to tremble,
my pictures start to shake.
The creepy monsters come live,
their bodies start to wake.

The monsters wander around. They like to bathe, dive, swim, play and read in pools of slime.  Each one is uniquely different and the author asks the reader which one makes you sh-sh-sh-shiver most? 

The last interactive page is an invitation ( maybe if you are a wizard too ) to draw some creepy monsters of your own.  The only rule and restriction to that request is.... to encase your monsters in an envelope so that they never, ever escape. 

What a fun book to read. The illustrations are full of imagination and  monster flair!  Written in rhyme, this book is sure to be read again and again.  I love the whole playful charming vibe and kids will also.   I highly recommend "My Book of Monsters!
