Light, Steve Have You Seen My Monster? Candlewick Press, 2015. $16.99 PICTURE BOOK Content: G.
A little girl goes around the fair looking for her hairy monster. She looks at the carousel, pie judging table and other such places, but doesn’t find him until the end. She finds him as a stuffed animal that you can win for a prize and then she takes him home.
Each page has a different shape that is colored in on the otherwise black and white picture. The shape is named and shown in a little black box in the corner of each page spread. The pictures are cute, but the idea that the little girl is looking for the monster when he is in plain sight on the page gets a bit tedious. Also, the types of shapes are more than just triangles and squares, such as decagon, trapezium and quatrefoil.
