Review #1441 Creepy Monsters, Sleepy Monsters by Jane Yolen
Creepy Monsters, Sleepy Monsters by Jane Yolen, illustrated by Kelly Murphy
Rating: two stars (out of four)
The illustrations were the best part of this book; they were colorful and definitely added to the whole monster feel. I loved the kitchen scene because it had a lot of subtle traces of humor. It was fun to read the labels and see what had been put in for older readers. The story was fairly simple and while I enjoyed the pictures, I didn't really warm up to this book. There was something missing. But if you really enjoy monster books and oftentimes have a hard time getting your own monsters, er, I mean, children to bed...this might be just the book for you.
