9780152165307: Monster Math

One little monster waits for the first birthday guest to arrive. . . . There’s a knock on the door, and now there are two! Now three! Now four! The guests keep arriving until fifty partying monsters wreak havoc and Monster Mom decides that enough is enough. The partygoers reluctantly depart until just that one little monster remains—after the best birthday party ever. Little ones can learn counting and basic math concepts while they’re laughing over the rollicking rhymes and hilarious, energetic illustrations.

About the Author:

ANNE MIRANDA is the author of the ABBY Honor Book To Market, To Market. She lives in Madrid, Spain.

POLLY POWELL has illustrated one other children's book, her own Just Dessert. She lives and paints in northern California.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-A counting book that shows a little monster greeting guests arriving for a party. The rhyming text describes the guests' antics and the eventual chaos: "Nine sticky monsters are washing their faces./Ten speedy monsters run ten monster races./The monsters keep coming and Mother's lost count./Ten more make twenty-a monstrous amount!" The numbers mount until there are 50 revelers in all. They leave in varying-sized groups until just one little monster remains. The party ends with an exhausted mother, a wrecked house, and a little monster that is "grateful and glad./It's the best birthday party that she's ever had!" The chubby, toylike creatures, each different, are shown in friendly, bouncy poses. The pages are filled with action, but most of the activities are not particularly imaginative and there is little in the way of wordplay. The story line functions primarily as a vehicle for counting and introducing the concepts of addition and subtraction. Kate Duke's One Guinea Pig Is Not Enough (Dutton, 1998) tells a bit more of a story through the illustrations. Some children, however, may find the little monsters' antics appealing and enjoy seeing the pages fill up with creatures as the numbers increase.
