Marilyn's Monster

Some of the kids in Marilyn's class have monsters. Marilyn doesn't have hers yet, but she can't just go out and look for one. Your monster has to find you. That's just the way it works.

Marilyn tries to be patient and the kind of girl no monster can resist, but her monster doesn't come. So as more and more of her classmates get found, Marilyn decides this is taking too long for her monster to find her — it's time to take some initiative and go looking on her own!

From favorite picture-book creators Michelle Knudsen and Matt Phelan comes a story about one little girl and the perfect monster she knows is out there... and what happens when she decides she's waited long enough. This charming picture book speaks to the universal experience of waiting for a deeply desired milestone — and the joy of discovering your own power to grow.

Description

"One of the poignancies of childhood is the waiting — for a loose tooth, to ride a bike, to learn to read. Knudsen's brilliantly simple narrative and Phelan's whimsical pencil and watercolor drawings speak to the universal need for belonging and the anxiety born of impatience....Every one of Phelan's monsters is wonderfully weird, and readers will have fun noting similarities between them and their human friends." — Lisa Lehmuller, School Library Journal
