By Rachel Bright
This is the second book from Rachel Bright about this lovable creature. Love Monster searches for the perfect present to give his special friend. There is much to choose from and he empties his pocket change bottle. But it isn’t enough so he returns home rejected and downhearted. Then he gets an idea! The next day he has the most wonderful gift to give!!
The illustrations and printing in this book are wonderful. The author says she uses a technique called solar etching which uses ultraviolet light to create the printing plates. So, the monster is literally created with sunshine. The detail in the pictures is beautiful, fun, imaginative, and engaging! I just found a copy of her first book in this series that I am going to order.
