Love Monster and the Scary Something

love-monster-and-the-scary-somethingBy Rachel Bright

No matter how hard he tries, Love Monster cannot fall asleep. As the night gets darker and spookier and noisier, he is sure a hungry, scary something is on the way to get him. Under the covers he goes! Can Love Monster find his courage and face his fears?

Love Monster and the Scary Something is the fourth book about him by Rachel Bright. The story is funny and silly and very appealing to young children. They will identify with his fears at night, but laugh as he figures it out. The colors in the illustrations are bold and beautiful. The book says they were made with a technique called solar etching, which uses ultraviolet light to create printing plates. Love Monster books are very popular with young readers and this one will be as well, I am sure.

    I read this one out loud to students and just thought it was so-so. They, however, really liked it and they all asked for it.
