Editorial Reviews

"A monstrously effective lid-dropper....Being all smiles, and more likely to elicit snorts of amusement than screams of terror, the monstrous marchers crawling, oozing, slithering, or strolling into and out of view with each page turn have the intended soporific effect." - Kirkus Reviews 

Unwrapping Some Illustrations for you

The Book               

First let me begin by saying how absolutely adorable and imaginative the illustrations in this book are.  I love them!  The monsters are not scary but so innovative and animated that kids will love each and every one of them.  

When Ethan is unable to sleep he recites his ABCs.  He doesn't count sheep but monsters.  Each letter is attributed to the appearance and action of a monster:  A is for Arms, B is for Belly, C is for Claws, and D is for Drool!  Kids will love this book and all the others in the award-winning series "I Need A Monster."  This book a pure delight from A to ZZzzzzz when Ethan finally falls asleep.  The book is playful, creative and a very fun read.  I highly recommend this book!
