Beware the Monster! will have you hungry for more reading. A truly adorable story for young readers.
– Momma Braga
Can a monster ever eat too much?
Wolves, ogres, and giants have always populated children’s books. That little bit of fear that they inspire is what makes storytime so exciting. In this book, young children are introduced to a ravenous monster that eats everything in its path. Apples, leaves, trees, and even cows don’t stand a chance as he ploughs his way through the woods satisfying his enormous appetite.
Who will his next victim be? Be careful! His favorite dish is little children! But don’t worry. The surprise ending will make children sigh with relief—and laugh out loud.
Filled with humor and just the right amount of scariness, this book speaks directly to the child with comments, warnings, and asides on every page. Giggle-inducing lines such as “I think you’d better hide” and “Here he comes! Close the book!” place the child right in the story.
Beware the Monster! is an absolute delight to read! It became an instant favorite in our home with it’s colorful illustrations and humorous story.
It is easy to immerse yourself into the story and little ones will have a blast. By the end you will all be laughing and wanting to read it one more time.
