Description

Inspired by a game she played with her own grandchild, the creator of Maisy brings her crayon-bright colors to a story that will have little monsters running for a listen.

You be a monster
who is green and scary,
with sharp pointy teeth
and feet that are hairy.

Little Gabriel loves to play monsters. And his family is happy to oblige, from Josie the hungry beast (munch, crunch, scrunch!) to Uncle Rufus with horns and a tail (oink oink moo!), and even Nonna the jelly monster (I’ll gobble you up!). But what happens when Mom-the-monster comes to eat Gabriel up when it’s time for bed? Lucy Cousins offers an entertaining and heartwarming celebration of family as she follows an imaginative child through a day of escalating giggles to a cozy moment before sleep.


Praise For Let's Play Monsters!

The frolicking diversion validates a child’s imaginative ability in an engaging bedtime scenario.
