Monster Trouble! by Lane Fredrickson


Monster Trouble! by Lane Fredrickson

Nothing frightens Winifred Schnitzel - but she does need her sleep, and the neighbourhood monsters won't let her be! Every night they sneak in, growling and belching and making a ruckus. Winifred constructs clever traps, but nothing stops these crafty creatures. What's a girl to do? (Hint: Monsters hate kisses!) The delightfully sweet ending will have every kid - and little monster - begging for an encore.


Winifred Schnitzel is not afraid of werewolves or peg-legged pirates, let alone the growling, belching, pointy-toothed monsters that assemble in her room each evening, keeping her awake with their fruitless attempts to frighten her. Stouthearted but sleep-deprived, the girl consults a book about building spook traps, and even designs one of her own, but it is only by chance that she discovers the most effective monster deterrent a kiss. Sprightly rhyming couplets, giggle-inducing artwork, and a clever heroine make for read-aloud fun. School Library Journal
