Nothing frightens Winifred Schnitzel -- but she DOES need her sleep, and the neighborhood monsters WON'T let her be! Every night they sneak in, growling and belching and making a ruckus. Winifred constructs clever traps, but nothing stops these crafty creatures. What's a girl to do? (Hint: Monsters HATE kisses!)
The delightfully sweet ending will have every kid -- and little monster -- begging for an encore.
"Playful and witty, this story will have even the grown-ups giggling. Written in verse, this rhyming text is fast-paced and silly in the most delightful way. Robertson's illustrations of Winifred are hilarious, as her cartoonish facial expressions perfectly convey her confusion, determination, and utter exhaustion. Additionally, the monsters appear simultaneously sinister and harmless, keeping young readers from fearing monsters like the brave Winifred Schnitzel. The little girl's attitude and actions send a strong message to young readers and promote reading to boot." — Kaitlin Connors, School Library Journal
