Monstergarten by Daniel J. Mahoney- OPTIONAL

Mahoney, Daniel J. Monstergarten, PICTURE BOOK. Feiwel and Friends, 2013. $16.99. Kevin is one little monster who is really worried he won’t be scary enough to start Monstergarten in the morning. He works and works and practices with his best friend, but he just can’t seem to be scary enough. When the morning arrives, Kevin’s friend is the most nervous to be starting the school day and all of Kevin’s practice pays off when he scares him to help relax and feel more comfortable. There was too much dialogue for a book on this topic. It should have been a little more simplistic and not quite so long. It was a cute premise, but there was too much focus on practicing before the monsters went to school instead of what happened when they arrived. K-3, EL-OPTIONAL. Reviewed by Shay, School Librarian
