Furry, blue Grover stars in this wildly popular Golden title that features a "monster at the end of this book." Beloved by a generation of fans who have discovered its sweet-natured suspense since the original publication in 1971, this laugh-out-loud read is bound to make its way into the hearts of a new generation, as readers see Grover trying to prevent them from turning pages -- and moving him toward a potentially harrowing meeting with the monster. Despite begging, tying pages together with rope, nailing pages together, and more, a scared Grover only gets closer and closer, until the last page, when we all are introduced to the creature himself. A hilarious, can't-miss treasure that puts a little egg on Grover's face and will definitely be read again and again.
Children's Literature
Sesame Street's own beloved character Grover stars in this "Big Little Golden Book." He plays host, urging the reader not turn to the next page because each one brings you closer to the monster at the end. Grover uses ropes to try to tie the pages back, a brick wall to stop the page from turning, and his urgent pleas to convince you to stop at the page you are on. Of course, children will be even more eager to dive further into this book, curiosity driving them wild to see the monster. This is such a fun book that they won't even realize that they are reading. Perfect for an enthusiastic adult to share with a new reader, the text is full of energy and words seem to jump out from the pages. As far as the monster at the end of the book goes, monster phobes need not fear. 2004 (orig. 1971), Golden Books, Ages 3 to 5.
