Everyone in Cutesville is excited for the most special day of the year: Present Day! Love Monster goes on a hunt for the perfect gift for his special someone, but as it turns out, finding the perfect gift is not easy. And the only thing worse than a not-perfect present is no present at all. But Love Monster soon comes up with the idea for the best gift ever—one that comes straight from his furry heart.

Praise For Love Monster and the Perfect Present

“This follow-up to Love Monster shows the titular, loving little beastie trying to find the perfect present for the monster he thinks "is the most perfect monster in the world." . . . The best gifts are those that come from the heart, and this book surely comes from Bright's” —Kirkus Reviews

“A timeless message of the importance of friendship and the Love Monster's lesson that something "doesn't have to cost the earth to mean the world," this is a lovely book to share around a holiday.” —School Library Journal

“Adorable puns, fuzzy monsters, and a meaningful message about what constitutes a good present make this a cheerful holiday read.” —Annie Miller, Booklist
