Synopsis

Those little monsters are back — and on the move! Jane Yolen takes her rhymes to the playground, aided by Kelly Murphy’s exuberant illustrations.

Stretching, twirling, tumbling, jumping! Welcome to a playground teeming with monsters, bristling with energy, and scaring up ways to have fun. Monsters swing and slide and piggyback ride. Monsters run three-legged races and fall on their faces. Monsters eat monster-sicles and vie for the fountain (Gulp...Grrrr...Grumble...Growl...All better now!). In this high-octane sequel to Creepy Monsters, Sleepy Monsters, wild and whimsical artwork revs up a read-aloud text that will have little listeners jumping up to join the action.
