“If a monster is tired and grumpy, send it to bed and say, ‘GO TO SLEEP!’ ” Like that would work.


This charming concept book puts the child-reader "in charge" of an assortment of unruly little monsters (stand-ins for their real-life counterparts) who are wild, noisy, hungry, scary, selfish, and grump. Sound familiar? The emphasis is on helping the monsters figure out how to change behaviors so that they can become happier, more more well-behaved kids. . . er, make that monsters. Promoting self-recognition of certain behaviors and the responses they elicit, it's an ideal book for young kids to share with a grown-up, who was probably once a little monster, too. And when a formerly grumpy-and-crabby monster turns into a good monster and asks nicely for a goodnight kiss, give one. Smoooch! And enjoy the rest of the evening!
