Reviewed by Joy Hannabass for Readers' Favorite Most kids love monsters, and I really like that Mark Adam Kaplan’s Monsters Do Ugly Things not only tells about the bad things monsters do, it tells about the good things too. Each page in this little book has a picture of a monster in the act of doing something either ugly or pretty, with an explanation in writing of what they are doing. Some of the ugly things monsters do here are pick their nose, make a mess, talk with their mouth full, and laugh at other monsters. And some of the pretty things the monsters do here are take a bath, brush their teeth, help others, and they don’t fight. Which monster are you? Be sure to check out this book to see all of the ugly and pretty things monsters do and see what kind of monster you are. With a topic that both girls and boys love, using monsters is a really unique and awesome way to teach children the difference between good and bad, pretty and ugly. This book starts with the ugly things monsters do, and finishes with pretty thing done by monsters. The illustrations are unique, colorful, adorable, and funny, and any child could make up their own story just by the pictures. Monsters Do Ugly Things by Mark Adam Kaplan, and illustrated by Glenn Scano is a book that you will want to have in your child’s library. And I would highly recommend it for school libraries everywhere. We truly need more valuable books like this precious little monster book.
My 9 year old niece and 7 year old nephew are in love with this book! They can't get enough of it. (All the adults in our family love it too!) This book really is for ages 4 to 400.
