John, Jory Quit Calling me a Monster, illustrated by Bob Shea. PICTURE BOOK. Random House, 2016. $18.
He make look like a monster, growl like a monster, have the teeth of a monster, but he doesn’t feel it’s very polite when you call him a monster. He has a much better idea for a name.
It may be after Halloween, but that does mean you have to pass up a good monster book. Now, I can’t be sure if this will help some little one who is afraid of the dark or inspire a fear (I don’t think it will do that), but it reminds me of Monsters, Inc. in all of the good ways.
