Marilyn's Monster

Amazon.com Rating:

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. Could she go out and search for him herself? Even if that's not the way it works?

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.

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
