Waiting for minimum critic reviews


A long time ago, when my grandparents'
grandparents were growing up...
there weren't any electric lights,
there weren't any cars,
there weren't many big machines...
But there were monsters!

And lucky thing there were, for in that funny, old-fashioned world, monsters really kept things running. They fed the pigs on the farm and put out fires in the city. In school you might have sat next to a monster, or even have been taught by one. Monsters were everywhere! And ... no one was afraid of them.

First published in 1986, A World Full of Monsters returns to provide bedtime comfort for a new generation. John Troy McQueen has spun a unique modern fable that explains away the bumps in the night that worry every child. Marc Brown's illustrations are full of the appealing characters, attention to detail, and gentle humor that have made him a household name.
