I Want to Be in a Scary Story

Written by Sean Taylor, Illustrated by Jean Jullien

I wanted to love this book but it was just okay. Little monster wants to be in a scary story, but not too scary. The narrator starts several stories, and the pictures illustrate what is happening, but each story is too scary for little monster. Finally, he helps tell the story he wants and creates a surprise at the end. The pictures are cute but simple. Because the story starts and stops, it feels a bit clunky. Taylor’s Don’t Call Me Choochie Pooh! is much better.
