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.
