After the lights have all been turned out a young boy’s imagination gets the best of him as he begins to envision all sorts of monsters in his home. The longer he imagines the monsters the more prolific they become. But then his father comes into the boy’s room and, turning on the lights, he helps his son understand the power he possesses over his monsters.
Written in rhyme, by Arlo Guthrie, this book has a pleasing cadence that keeps it strumming along at a nice clip. Words of wisdom are interspersed with whimsical lines, helping make Monsters an engaging read. Illustrations by Kathy Garren are perfectly suited for this story which is decidedly unique and altogether delightful. Recommended for home and school libraries, Monsters is a literary treasure and has earned the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.
