Spring Reading 2016 The Problem with Not Being Sacred of Monsters

The Problem With Not Being Scared of Monsters

Most people probably think that being afraid of something is a problem. Being frightened of spiders or the dark or clowns can really disrupt your life, and sometimes get you laughed at by others. But did you know that NOT being scared can also be a problem sometimes? It's true, especially if you are not scared of monsters. Because if they don't scare you, then the monsters want to hang out with you and treat you as one of the gang. The boy narrating this story has the worst trouble with monsters hogging the bed, trying on his pajamas, misplacing his homework - it's always something with those monsters. When he finally sends them out of his room, then he has a whole new set of problems to handle.

Perfect for young readers who may be a little nervous about the monster under the bed (or in the closet). This doesn't downplay their fear, but it shows them that there are other problems when it comes to monsters in your life. It might even convince them that monsters are cool, or at least a little funny. For fans of "Monsters. Inc." "Monsters U," and Where the Wild Things Are, this book will tickle their funny bones in just the right way.

*Update 08/01/2016 We have added this book to the Fairview library.
