About the Author

Bruce Eric Kaplan, known for his distinctive, off-beat single-panel cartoons, has been a New Yorker cartoonist for more than fifteen years. He is also a television writer and was an executive producer for the acclaimed HBO series Six Feet Under, as well as a writer on Seinfeld (funnily enough, one of his most well-known episodes is one where Elaine becomes increasingly frustrated over what she takes to be an utterly nonsensical New Yorker cartoon). He has authored and illustrated seven adult titles including the cult classic The Cat That Changed My Life; the collections I Love You, I Hate You, I’m Hungry; No One You Know; and This Is a Bad Time; and three titles featuring the wonderfully neurotic Brooklyn couple Edmund and Rosemary: Every Person on the Planet, Edmund and Rosemary Go to Hell, and Everything Is Going to Be Okay. Bruce is also the author and illustrator of four picture books: Monsters Eat Whiny Children, Cousin Irv from Mars, Meaniehead, and Someone Farted. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two children.

This book caught my eye and made me laugh. Thinking of my own children especially my five year old daughter. It seemed appropriately fitting for her. She loved the book. Read it again, Mommy! Brilliant! Now, when she starts whining, I just ask her what happens to whiny children? She mummbles that they get eaten by monsters. Exactly! And the whining stops. Love it! And it works, too!

Hilarious picture book, that I'm not quite sure is for children as much as it could provide entertainment for adults.

Two whiny children are told by their father that "monsters eat whiny children." They keep whining, much to the delight of the monster who kidnaps them and takes them home to eat. Unfortunately, his friends and neighbors keep suggesting different ways to prepare the whiny children and he can't make up his mind!

My 6 year old loved the book, especially the ending. We will be reading many times again.
