If You’re a Monster and You Know It

If You’re a Monster and You Know it is the latest offering by the Emberley family, creators of Chicken Little, There Was an Old Monster, and Glad Monster, Sad Monster. (Sense a trend?) School Library Journal: “The exceptionally bright, digitally created monsters are set against a black background, which makes them almost 3-D in appearance. Each verse appears in an easy-to-read font and in a variety of colors that show up clearly on the dark page. The Emberleys have a knack for creating wonderfully creepy creatures. Though wacky, they are not too scary for even the youngest child. Kids will be only too willing to pretend to be monsters and follow along to ‘snort and growl,’ ‘twitch your tail,’ and ‘wriggle your warts,’ as instructed, in order to prove their monsterness. The last page states, ‘Now, do it again…'” James’ dad has forbidden this book at bedtime. Giggle factor: off the charts. Adult enjoyment: likely. Illustrations: four jelly jars.

  1. This sounds awesome. Benji loves monsters and “exercise” books – books that get him moving and play along. He calls “From Head to Toe” by Eric Carle the “exercise book”. Not a bedtime book!
