I do story time at the bookstore I work at. This book was a *big* hit! It was liked by the preschool set today more than books by Eric Carle, Marla Frazee, and other great, fantastic authors. The plot of the book is simple. Little monsters go through their little monster days and then it's bath/bedtime! Lots of adjectives are used to narrate the story. What can I say? Jane Yolen you are a genius! The author of How do Dinosaurs say Goodnight? gets it right! Monster themed books are a tricky area. Sometimes they are very popular like today and other days I'm told by three and four year olds that's they are too scary! Today, this book was loved!
