Maggie and the Monster

Overview

Every night a monster comes into Maggie's room. The monster crashes into the furniture with her big hairy feet, knocks books off the shelf, and sits in the chair and grumbles to herself. Maggie doesn't know what to do until her mother suggests that maybe the monster is looking for something. So Maggie asks the monster, and it turns out she's looking for her mother. Together, they carry on the search until the monster finds her mother—and Maggie finally gets a good night's sleep!...

Together, they carry on the search until the monster finds her mother—and Maggie finally gets a good night's sleep!

With a lighthearted spirit and a clever mystery element, Maggie and the Monster is a wonderful collaboration between two award-winning talents. Readers will be thrilled to see this charming bedtime tale back in print.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A little-girl monster visits Maggie's room at night. She's a nuisance. She bangs open the door, pushes her hairy feet along the floor and sits in a chair and sighs. Maggie complains to her mom; she hangs a ``Monsters Keep Out'' sign on her door, but nothing works. Finally Maggie asks her what she wants. ``I'm looking for my mother,'' the monster replies. The girl helpfully directs her to the other monster who lives in the hall closet. ``She has big hairy feet just like you,'' Maggie says. A grand reunion ensues; Maggie gets a good night's sleep. Winthrop's Maggie is a spunky and confident kid who'll surely inspire other youngsters to face their fears. DePaola's full-color illustrations add sly humor to this picture-book mystery. Ages 3-6. (April)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3 Maggie is faced with a mystery, and with the help of her mother she solves it. A grumpy little-girl monster with hairy feet comes to Maggie's room every night, disturbing Maggie's sleep. Maggie puts a sign on her door to ward off the monster, but the little monster pays no heed. She finally discovers that the monster has lost her mother. Maggie's keen observation that there is another monster with hairy feet hiding behind the brooms in the upstairs closet pays off, and mother and daughter monsters are reunited. This happy blending of story and pictures is totally satisfying and delightful. Maggie is fearless and enterprising; her character is portrayed with an economy of both language and line. The endearing little monster, who has a bow on her few upright hairs, big ears, and buck teeth, will scare no one, and her reunion with her look-alike mother, who wears curlers and carries a violet pocketbook, is a relief to all. Maggie's self-possession and bravery should inspire young readers. Leda Schubert, Grand Avenue School, Uniondale, N.Y.
