An adorable little board book about a monster with huge eyes, sharp claws, and a  loud "Grrr!" Surely everyone will be scared of him! Um, not so much. The child who comes across him in the woods isn't phased in the least. I loved the illustrations here - whimsical line drawings with just a splash of color!

Thank you to Netgalley for providing me with this book in exchange for my honest opinion. It will be available on March 17, 202

This book is so adorable! I requested it because I had a feeling my toddler would enjoy it. I read it aloud and he loved it.

The illustrations are charming in their simplicity. Told with very little dialogue, this book is about a monster who tries- and fails- to scare a child. He roars, growls, and shows off his horns and teeth. To the monster’s discomfiture, the child thinks he’s cute. What’s a monster to do?

What I liked best about this book was the ability to prompt my toddler to talk about the pictures and make conclusions based on what was happening. Because there isn’t much dialogue, my “little” made the monster sounds, talked about how cute the monster was, and had a lovely time. The book would probably be even more riveting to a slightly younger child, but my toddler still really liked it.

This would make a great baby shower gift. I recommend it for all little book lovers- in-training.

A big thank you to NetGalley and Orca Publishing for the ARC. I am voluntarily reviewing this book. This is a kids book very young.  Sort of lacks substance but I guess I should have expected that.  Why isn't she afraid?  It is a board book. 3.5 stars.  I am sure many kids will love

This was a cute read that the students in my classroom really enjoyed!  The illustrations were excellent, as well.
