Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Our protagonist is searching for the perfect monster. It cannot be too big, too furry, or too slimy, and lots of other characteristics are ruled out as the pages are turned. While turning the pages, kids get to pull tabs, turn wheels and enjoy pop-ups while they help in the search for a perfect monster. Will he be found, and why is this young boy so serious in this pursuit? The last spread shows us that he has a host of monster friends and was seeking the perfect playmate to join in. The images are created in black like silhouettes on colored pages. The purpose is to make them see even more scary, but this is a book that really will not scare most kids. Most of the monsters look a bit silly, and the boy never shows any fear as he engages on this hunt. This is a book that will probably have its most appeal around Halloween. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

This is our new favorite! My son loves the colors and pop ups, especially the one that you can make bite. It is perfect for a child who is worried about monsters...puts the child in charge.
