The Lovereading4Kids comment

Join two little monsters in this new rhyming read-aloud from the beloved Jane Yolen about the snarfing, growling, hip-hopping way that monsters go to bed. Young children and parents alike will find much to identify with as they follow these lovable little monsters getting ready for bed. With wildly colourful illustrations full of whimsy and warmth, Kelly Murphy brings Jane Yolen's gently rhyming tale to rip-roaring life. This is a great read-aloud for bedtime. It is a brilliant, fun book - especially for boys! It features bright, exuberant illustrations by Kelly Murphy in her signature style.


Creepy Monsters, Sleepy Monsters by Jane Yolen

Creep, gurgle, crawl, tumble! Meet two young monsters who are far from scary - they're too busy having fun! They go to school, play outside with their friends and eat after-school snacks. But like human children they also have a bedtime, whether they're ready for it or not.


... features monsters who might be descended from Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are, except they are smaller and more benign Observer ... a great read-aloud for bedtime. It is a brilliant, fun book - especially for boys! Featured/recommended Yellow Brick Road Luminous illustrations render each little monster ultimately friendly and good fun Carousel
