About the Author
Praise For This Monster Cannot Wait!…
"Toothy and unkempt, with wild eyes and a temper tantrum of a roar—“I wanna go camping NOW!”—Stewart fully embodies a preschooler who has not yet mastered the art of waiting. Barton’s sprawling, hand-lettered text and its buoyant placement match the urgency of Stewart’s desperation." - Kirkus Reviews
"The sprawling text printed in capital letters emphasizes Stewart’s impatience, and the quirky ink and Photoshop illustrations add many humorous moments to the story." - School Library Journal
