This laugh-out-loud book describes the many differences found between monsters. Some monsters will eat anything; some are picky. Some monsters talk and talk and talk; some are quiet. But ultimately, as this hilarious book makes clear, all monsters are absolutely, positively, completely perfectly wonderful . . . just the way they are!
David Milgrim’s spare text and colorful, contemporary illustrations are perfect for beginning readers. And for anyone who’s ever felt like the odd one out, this is a funny, playful, and comforting story.
David Milgrim has written and illustrated over twenty picture books, including Goodnight iPad; Eddie Gets Ready for School; My Dog, Buddy; and Cows Can’t Fly, an IRA/CBC Children’s Choice Award winner. He lives in Northampton, Massachusetts, with his family.
"This title is a fresh take on the theme of accepting differences in others. Milgrim’s digital drawings feature silly monsters and contrast different likes and dislikes, different personalities." -- School Library Journal
"Interesting how being yourself is championed, yet at the same time, most kids are keenly aware of the pressure to fit in and not be too different. In this slim title, Milgrim pairs his brief text with hilarious illustrations to celebrate a charmingly diverse group of monsters." -- Kirkus Review
Praise for Eddie Gets Ready for School:
“This is an energetic romp with high appeal.” —School Library Journal
“That age-old struggle of getting kids off to school in the morning goes to new extremes in this howler from Milgrim. . . . Parents who have been there and kids who are still struggling with independence will find it hard not to root for Eddie.” —Kirkus Reviews
