About the Book

 “Another winner from Rosalind and Kathleen. I loved this tale of The Monsters Three, in which three little monsters discover their monster ways will have to change if they want treats this Halloween. Bright colors and rhyme make this a delicious Halloween treat. I can’t wait to hand sell it at FoxTale!”

—Karen Schwettman, co-owner of FoxTale Book Shoppe, Woodstock, GA

My Review

This book has been on my "to-review" list for quite some time; however it has also been in my youngest daughter's bed each night. Little J, who just turned three, absolutely adores this book and must sleep with it every night. She also brings it with her when we drive places in our car.
Halloween may be a long way off, but my daughter likes to channel the hope for lots of candy by reading this book over and over. I don't mind that she asks to be read this book over and over because the story is about the importance of using manners. The three monsters in the story learn that their screaming and shouting will not bring them any candy. For a three year old, any book that includes monsters shouting "Smell our Feet!" will be a winner.

The bright colors of the illustrations captivate my daughter's attention, and we both have so much fun connecting the costumes in the story to other children's book. She loves that one of the kids is dressed up like Max from Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak.  Whenever a children's book provides the opportunity to open various forms of discussion, including manners, costumes, other children's books, holidays, etc, it makes a great read aloud.

In the end, the monsters soon see that the children using their manners end up with full bags of candy. The monsters follow the lead of the other children and start using their manners. The result is what every kid wants- lots of candy. We found a sweet spot for this book, and you will too.
You can purchase the book through Amazon, or better yet- head on over to your local Indie Bookstore and purchase a copy.
