Soman, David The Monster Next Door. PICTURE BOOK. Dial Books, 2016. $17.99
This is a really heartwarming story about budding friendship. The illustrations are gorgeous. A young boy builds a treehouse in a field and fills it up with his treasures. Shortly a noisy, purple monster builds a treehouse next door. They start a budding friendship.
The books beautifully discusses that we can be friends even if we are different. Even we like different things. Together we can make our own kind of beautiful music. Young children will love to have this book read to them. It is so much fun to discover all the things in the story and in the delightful and beautiful illustrations.
