When a Monster is Born by Sean Taylor.This book was a hoot! I classify it as one of those books written for the adults and the kids. It has bright comic book illustrations, quick lines of rhyming and repeating text in varying fonts on each page. Great read aloud!
When a monster is born, there are two possibilities—Either it’s a faraway-in-the-forests monster, or . . .it’s an under-your-bed monster.If it’s a faraway-in-the-forests monster, that’s that.But if it’s an under-your-bed monster, all sorts of comical things can happen.Read it at bedtime and laugh your pajamas off . . .or read it during the day and laugh your socks off!- From Goodreads
The troublemaking students of Ms. Jenkins' class arrive at school one day to discover a substitute creacher has come to put a stop to their monkey business! He regales them with mind-boggling stories about his former students who didn't follow the rules: Keith the glue-eater, Zach the daydreamer, and Hank the prankster, to name a few. But even this multi-tentacled, yellow-spotted, one-eyed monster's cautionary tales about the consequences of mischief-making can't seem to change the students' wicked ways until he reveals the spookiest and most surprising story of all: his own.This is written like a comic book so the pictures are fantastic. This book could actually be a back to school book, or set up during the Halloween season.
Mortimer is looking for love. And he’s looking everywhere! He’s worked out at the gym (if only his arm wouldn’t keep falling off). He’s tried ballroom dancing lessons (but the ladies found him to be a bit stiff). He’s even been on stalemate.com. How’s a guy supposed to find a ghoul? When it seems all hope has died, could the girl of Mortimer’s dreams be just one horrifying shriek away?This book is my absolute favorite, I only have had one chance to read it since it has been checked out ever since. The illustrations are as fantastic as the story.
