The Lovereading4Kids comment
Angus lives at the very bottom of Loch Ness with his parents and he is meant to stick to some very simple rules the most important of which is, never go up to the surface of the Loch. But Angus breaks the family rule when he goes to the surface of the loch and learns a lesson he will never forget! Angus learns the hard way to do what he has been told!
The Loch Mess Monster by Helen Lester
Ever since Angus was a wee baby monster living below the surface of Loch Ness, his parents tried to teach him to be a proper monster. But as Angus grows bigger, he gets sloppy. Puggy-nit peanut shells are piling up; his grottie laundry is in a heap; tattie cans litter the floor. It's a mountain of a mess! And as Angus' rubbish heap grows, a surprising Loch Ness sighting of his own awaits on the surface of the lake...Children will love the twist at the end of this monstrously funny cautionary tale!
Believable, appealing characters and pitch-perfect pacing combine nicely with Lester's always-humorous text and Munsinger's hilariously detailed illustrations in this cheerful cautionary tale. Kirkus Munsinger's ink-and-watercolor illustrations add to the story's deadpan humour, and although this is a message book, the lesson is delivered with such hilarity it never feels preachy. Booklist
Youngsters will fall in love with Angus, and adult will appreciate the laugh-out-loud lessons Angus learns about the hazards of a messy bedroom. School Library Journal
