I know you will fall in love in Groggle. I took one look at him and wanted to hug him tight. What a sweetie. He is staying up all night and creating the perfect Valentine's card for his beast friend, Snarlina. He enters deep into the dark forest to forage for the precise materials he needs to make this happen. He discovers the right heart-shaped leaves, he gathers up bog slime and uses bold, gooey letters to write poetry to her from his heart. He then stands back and ogles his work. His Monster appetite suddenly awakens and .... gobble, crunch, crunch, slurp! Snarlina's masterpiece disappears into his tummy. Oh my! He embellishes his love notes with skunk flowers, snake bows, and sprinkles of shiny beetle glitter. His untamed internal monster keeps snapping up his love poems each time he completes another one... gobble, crunch, crunch, slurp! His instincts overtake him post-poems and time is running through the hour glass. What is a little Monster to do? He did have the best of intentions, he truly did. He wanted to surprise Snarlina with his endearing endeavours but he has only a tiny morsel left to present to her now. Will Snarlina receive his sad, tattered remnant with disdain and scorn or heartfelt joy? This charming story is one of love and friendship. The Monsters are sweet, relatable, and non-threatening. The illustrations are truly amazing. The rich dark colour pallet and splendid detail will have readers coming back again and again ... gobble, crunch, crunch, slurp... begging for seconds and thirds for sure. I loved the book and highly recommend it.
