Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—It's time for bed but Paul is not tired. Despite already being in his cozy pajamas, he wants to stay up and play with his toys. Again, Mom tells him to go to bed, but he grumbles and groans and grows a green, spiky tail. His parents try to calm the newly sprouted monster, despite his flailing, clawed hands and feet. The sleepy little creature is no match for the soft lullabies and is soon tucked into bed. Only after he is fast asleep does Dad make a monstrous confession. Cartoon characters outlined in black ink and filled in with soft, pastel watercolors on textured paper bring this monster to life. Some pages use comic-book-style panel sequencing. Small details, like crayons strewn on the floor and hand-drawn artwork adorning the walls, are interesting and familiar. The story is sweet but does not necessarily lend itself to the bilingual English/Spanish format, although the Spanish translation is satisfactory. A solid addition where Spanish-language books are in demand.—Shannon Dye, Sno-Isle Libraries, Monroe, WA

It's a story that every parent has lived at least once: the terrible tantrum that follows the dreaded phrase "it's time for bed." Little Paul demonstrates for readers that sometimes the monster at night doesn't dwell under the bed or in the closet. As we turn the page we see Paul transform from an adorable little boy who plays with toy cars to a horrible monster that stomps on them. He roars, hisses, stomps and smashes until Dad scoops him up and gently begins to rock. Mom sings a lullaby. Paul yawns. In a matter of a few pages we see Paul all tucked in and tuckered out, the monster once again a little boy. Parents will recognize their own little monsters in the story and kids might even see themselves; no matter the perspective the reader takes they will undoubtedly see a charming story supplemented by delightful illustrations. With spot-on translations this bilingual book is a wonderful treat for readers fluent in Spanish, as well as readers interested in learning a second language. Reviewer: Mandy Cruz
