9780007540327: Love Monster and the Scary Something

It's way past bedtime o'clock in Cutesville . . . . but somebody can't sleep. The harder he tries to nod off, the more wide awake Love Monster is, and the later and darker and spookier it gets. When he hears a rustle rustle, then a creeeak, scuffle-shuffle BUMP, he's just sure there's a hungry, scary something on its way to get him. So Love Monster musters up his courage . . . . and discovers that the something scary isn't so scary after all. It's just his friend coming to pay Love Monster a visit. Turns out Love Monster's pal couldn't sleep, either.

About the Author:

Rachel Bright is a wordsmith, printmaker, and thinker of happy thoughts. The author-illustrator of Love Monster, Love Monster and the Perfect Present, and Love Monster and the Last Chocolate, she is passionate about time-honored printmaking techniques. She works from her converted caravan studio, on a farm near the sea in the south of England, where she lives with her partner; her daughter, River; a dog called Elvis, and a cat called Superman.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 2—Popular Love Monster is back for more as he discovers his "brave-inside" by overcoming his fear of the dark. Many children will empathize with Love Monster's plight as he tries to fall asleep and the sounds around him translate into something monstrous. Bright's unique illustrations, created with a technique called solar etching, emphasize the shadows when appropriate, spilling font across the page in a rippling movement that begs to be read aloud. Onomatopoeic words highlight Love Monster's fears, and the clever use of punctuation identifies long, drawn-out pauses. Alliterative phrases like terrible, twisterly toenails trip off the tongue and add to the nimble wordplay. As Love Monster conjures increasingly horrific images from the sounds he hears, Bright presents these imaginings in vivid, bold colors until the hilarious climax. What follows are a series of smaller panels that show how fears can magnify one's reality unless one is willing to face them. VERDICT An endearing first purchase for most collections and a welcome addition to storytimes.—Rachel Zuffa, Racine Public Library, WI
