Overview

The new yellow monster arrived on the island with an intriguing offer: "Let me have a tiny bit of land for myself and I will clear away your rocks, level your ground, and tidy up your jungle." The very lazy red and blue monsters may not like the strange "funny foreigner type" but how can they refuseespecially when they had not the faintest intention of holding up their end of the bargain? How yellow monster succeeds in forcing the two monsters to live up to their promise, while building himself a lush island paradise, makes for a remarkable modern fable of sharing and acceptance.

David McKee's provocative and humorous text will incite readers to thinkingand to laughter, as they chortle over some of the delicious insults the monsters hurl at each other. Who can forget "gormless gump" or "custard-colored, cringing creep!"?
